punt-kin time

just two more days until fall is official.  last week, a friend posted on her blog about baking some pumpkin pies and having the spice smell fill her house.  i know that aroma.  since it was rainy sunday, i decided to whip up some pumpkin pies for that same fall sensation lingering in mock manor.

this was pie number one out of the oven.  pie number two was working as was a loaf of pumpkin bread.  and yes, that’s timmy the code monkey in the background eye-ing the spicy goodness cooling on the rack.

a few friends and i traveled over to wilmington to visit a friend who works in that town.  and speaking of, that town was very nice.  our accommodations put us in a great place right on the beach.  we left the sliding door open each night so the sound of the ocean filled our room as we slept.  the sea breeze was refreshing.  we ate plenty of seafood and did so much relaxing.  it was a great end to the summer.

of course, pictures were taken.  you can view them by clicking the image.
