*A Perfect Autumn Day*

My vision of a perfect autumn day hasn't changed much since I was a child...
A sunny, crisp November Sunday.
Raking leaves outside with family.
While inside my favorite meal is cooking - pork roast with potato dumplings.
Somehow my sons didn't inherit my love for potato dumplings so we have added homemade cheese spaetzles to the perfect autumn meal.

I found these great pots of black petunias and autumn pansies last month.
I thought they were perfect for Halloween.
Despite a few hard frosts, they are still going strong.

After our delicious meal, I whipped up some brownies so that we could eat them warm and gooey while watching "The Amazing Race".

I love autumn and only one thing could complete this perfect autumn day...
A finish:

"Aw Nuts!" by Maggie Bonanomi

Maybe we will have another perfect autumn day this Sunday...
Wishing you a perfect autumn day.
Blessings, Patti
p.s. Stay tuned for a blog giveaway coming soon. Especially if you are Maggie Bonanomi fan like me ;)
