Fall in the Mitten is turning out to be pretty good so far! The trees are turning, the weather has been exceptional and there’s some amazing Mitten Moments to share with you!
My Personal Mitten Moments
Can you believe it’s the first full week of October? I’ve already watched the original Halloween movie for the first time this season. I’m not much of a scary movie buff, but this one takes me back. It was the first “really scary” movie I ever saw at the theatre. I always watch it once…or maybe twice through the month of October.
Do you still have summer flowers blooming? Believe it or not, I still have zinnias, straw flowers, roses, celosia, and dahlias blooming.
We may get to freezing tonight, so I am going to cover them! Some of you may say it’s time for the summer flowers to go, but I can’t let any of those beautiful blooms go to waste.

A Few Of My Favorite Mitten Moments
Carbs. I love carbs. When I saw last weeks post from My friend Leslie from Feet Under My Table, it stopped me in my tracks. It was the prettiest braided loaf of yeast bread! Do I need this recipe?
Yes, I do…and so do you!
Who remembers the movie Hocus Pocus? I can’t count how many times I’ve seen that movie. When my sons were growing up it was watched multiple times…and maybe even after they were gone. In honor of the Hocus Pocus 2 premiering Friday, wouldn’t it be super fun to create this Hocus Pocus Charcuterie Board from Kelli and Kristi at Lolly Jane.
If you make this food beauty, you’ll be the hit of the party!
