Normal day, let me be aware of the treasure you are. Let me learn from you, love you, bless you before you depart. Let me not pass by in quest of some rare and perfect tomorrow. Let me hold you while I may, for it may not always be so. One day I shall dig my nails into the earth, or bury my face in the pillow, or stretch myself taut, or raise my hands to the sky and want, more than all the world, your return. - Mary Jean Iron

that time of year
This month has been crazy. It seems like 5 minutes ago I was saying "holy cow! October is here" and now all of a sudden the colors are fading and the snow is setting in. Despite how fast it has swept through, we have tried our best to embrace the joys of autumn. This weekend we ate apple cake and cinnamon baked pumpkin followed by an intense carving session, the results of which were quite fabulous (see below). Last weekend, when adam was gone to NJ, I attended the last missoula market until next may. I came home with delicious bitterroot apples, sweet onions, and a beautiful butternut squash (eat seasonally!!!), which we have already eaten.
