The Jack-o-lanterns are cute and all… but my very favorite part of Pumpkin Carving Day is the roasting of pumpkin seeds! While there are lots of recipes online for fancy seeds flavored with tamari, spices, etc… we prefer to keep it simple: We wash the seeds in a colander, then spread them on a lightly oiled cookie sheet, sprinkle them with a little salt, then bake at 350 until golden brown. We’ve been eating them by the handful all day today, but if there are any left I will add them to the trail mix I plan on making later this afternoon.

|On our shelf: Colorful leaves, preserved in beeswax (see note below); a small bowl of acorns; an unusual rock; a jar of mums, snipped from our plant outside and a cute little pumpkin.|

I really like this spot in our homeschool area... It reflects the way our lives change along with the seasons, and it just makes me happy!

This weekend, we slowed the pace down a bit... we did a few things around the house that couldn't wait, and a bit of yard work, but we spent most of the weekend just enjoying time together... eating homemade pizza by the fire pit, snuggling up to watch movies together, sitting on the back porch and taking walks out in the beautiful weather. We are now refreshed and renewed and ready for another busy week!
