I woke up this morning and started to make two caramel pumpkin pies. Though the crusts shrunk a bit, I burned the caramel, and splattered pumpkin on my face- I finally ended up with two lovely pies that will be transported up to my relatives' house tomorrow. 

I thought it was easy to throw away burnt caramel. It certainly isn't. It's like trying to pry melted, bad-smelling taffy out of a saucepan.
I love Thanksgiving food. Once our turkey went up in flames, but that is another story for another day....

You might wonder why I'm posting more pictures of tree branches and leaves, instead of food. Truth is I didn't bother to take any kitchen pictures today, and the trees outside just begged to be photographed.
Fall is such a glorious season.
There are so many things I'm thankful for. I could go on and on- if I get to specific this post would be ridiculously long! This upcoming Thanksgiving Day is a reminder to me to be thankful at all times. Society today would have us eat a nice dinner, then rush on to the next shopping holiday. But I like how King David put it:

Give thanks to the LORD, for he is good; 
his love endures forever.
Let Israel say: 
"His love endures forever."
Let the house of Aaron say: 
"His love endures forever."
Let those who fear the LORD say: 
"His love endures forever."- Psalm 118

I hope you all have a lovely rest of the week!

Oh Natalie, that's an absolutely gorgeous picture of the bird! So darling! Is it a finch of some sort? Dying to hear more about the firey turkey...
And can I link to you on my blog? (I'm finally doing a blogroll of sorts)
