Good morning.  This was my sunrise this morning - light pouring over the empty cornstalks.  It hasn't always been corn.  Before that it was soybeans and before that I can't remember, but this is our view for now.

And this was basically my view shortly after.  Remembering something I'd seen on Pinterest, I whipped up some pumpkin pie smoothies for breakfast (organic canned pumpkin, ripe banana, cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves and ginger, buttermilk).  

My Pinterest account started as a way to give our shoes a style and a context, but it has become a fun and personal collection of images, recipes and ideas that I enjoy.  If you don't know what I'm talking about, take a look.  If you do, look me up - we can follow eachother!

Leif didn't love his smoothie as much as I did, and asked for pumpkin pancakes instead.  I made a loose mental reference to this recipe and turned the remainder into pumpkin pancakes. 

What a delicious morning.  Happy Friday!

p.s.  If you're local and free tomorrow morning, come on over to the King Ferry Farmers' Market.  We'll be pressing cider and making donuts from 10-1.  The cider and donuts are free, and we just might put you to work!


  1. Thanks for sharing the recipe ideas. I'm always looking for fun and tasty breakfast recipes for my four girls.

    I recently bought my first pair of Aurora shoes (New Chinese---I love them!), and found your blog. I'm really enjoying reading your posts!

  2. Thanks, Valerie - that's so great to hear. I can't stop telling people about those pumpkin smoothies. So good!

    Also, four kids... my hat is off to you. I am having quite the morning with my two!


It's always good to hear from you. Thanks for taking the time to leave a comment!
