Butter Nut SquashIMG_5957An early fall Sunday. The air is wet with rain and the birds a screaming with joy in the yard. The weather begins to cool and I start to think soup.  I have some squash and assorted color carrots and potatoes. Fresh herbs and tomatoes form the garden are still plentiful.  Soup sort of cooks itself while I write and sip tea. I potter with the camer and my photographs. I catch up with friends on Facebook. The gentle bubbling sounds are comforting and the aromas mingle with damp earth.  The neighbors will join me for dinner, I think.
