The littles are at home today because we have a three-day weekend. How I love it when the weekend is lengthened, which, in turn, makes the school week shortened. It then leaves me thinking that every weekend should be three days….hence every school/work week should be four.
We had planned to go to the Pumpkin Patch to soak in the fun of the season.
But, it rained. And, we are not complaining. We had not received real, substantial, ground-soaking rain since the first week of June. We had received a couple of showers the past couple of weeks, but nothing like this – thunder, lightning, rain. Rain so hard that it sent the middle little straight into bed with us. And, it was good, very good.
So, we are spending the day in our pajamas, baking, watching movies, playing games. Just enjoying being at home.
And, it is pasta night, which is always a family favorite. I created this fall pasta with cream sauce, and it was a hit. I love how we can still keep our theme nights, while mixing in the flavors of the season. It is truly one of the joys of cooking – always finding new ways to enjoy old favorites.
