Zach and I have been visiting our local orchards, just to take in the sights and smells of this too short season...I sometimes wish it could go on forever, but perhaps that would make it less special. We purchased a bottle of Apple Desert Wine and a jug of Hard Apple Cider from Spicer's Orchard down the road from us. They make the wine and cider on site and these two varieties are our favorites especially this time of year. The Apple wine is delicious with mulling spices.

We plan to carve pumpkins this weekend. Though, we have to grab a couple new ones since the turkeys hollowed out our two Jack-O-Lanterns on the porch. They pecked a giant hole in the side of each one and scooped out every bit of soft flesh and all the seeds...oh well. If it makes them happy.
Here''s some sights from this week. Hope you enjoy them.
