No rain came but the dark clouds hung around all day keeping the humidity high and the temperature climbing into the upper 70's to feel more like a return of summer.
I baked 12 caramel, 1 coconut , 2 chocolate, 6 pound cakes and 3 wine cakes before lunch.
I gleaned some tomatoes and peppers from the garden this morning with the idea to make a run of salsa later today, but after cleaning up the kitchen after baking I was too tired to make the salsa today.
Maybe another day if we don't eat the tomatoes !!!
Instead I thought some outside work might pick my energy level up so I gathered the small gourds that had come up from a stray seed around the quail cage and behind the dog lots. I got a basket of these cute little guys.
I also collected these gourds that hubbie had to cut out of a small apple tree on a bank below the house because they were actually pulling the little tree over with their weight.
These are a couple crossed gourds that grew on my well house roof. The worms are in them so I used them for my decorations.
I love this time of year, the weather hasn't really been too good since fall began but this evening the sun finally came out and ended the day with a beautiful fall evening.
Too bad I have cakes to ice and need to get things all ready to get an early start market tomorrow so I can't stay outside and enjoy it.
The last part of the decade photo project for this month is the "no date" pics. These I know the subjects but don't know when the pictures were taken.
This first one is my uncle Anderson Holmes on one of his horses. He lost his arm in the war.
Good Night and God Bless.
