One day this week Maria counted four pumpkin items at Trader Joe's, the next day there were ten, including actual pumpkins. Pumpkin Days are here! It's not fall, yet, but it's coming. Fog. Colored leaves. Brisk mornings. Wooly socks. Homework in front of a fire. Hearty soups and fresh baked bread. And pumpkins! All kinds of pumpkins.
