Monday Miscellany-Really

My muse dropped in yesterday. I was so pleased she had four legs this time around. Maybe she'll help me polish the story the way it should be polished. Of course, she's young, but what she lacks in experience she makes up for in charm and beauty, doesn't she?

I'm in a Crazy Halloween Cake Bake Off with the 2009 Debs who are totally mad and who I adore. This should be fun. Wish I knew how to bake. Betty Crocker, here I come. Hope you'll stop by in October to see what I come up with. Or . . . you could come over and lend a hand.

Rain came to us today and that's good and bad. Good because I always love rain, but my tomatoes haven't been harvested and my green beans are still setting and my last squash isn't quite ready. Then there's the outdoor furniture that's wet, not stored, and  . . . . Never mind. I will not panic. Fall comes every year and this year is no exception. I will do just fine.

Of course, I am now faced with the next Write Campaign Challenge! What? And this one's a doozie with all kinds of brilliant writers participating. Come on Muse! I need a boost by Thursday.

  1. I'm a little stressed with fall approaching, too. The challenge is going to be difficult. I had to look up several words. LOL

  2. Beautiful fawn!
    Fall came quickly, didn't it?
    Though my kiddos love Halloween, so it's such a fun time in this household!

  3. Four-legged muses are the best kind to have. Twice as much endurance and therefore . . . musification.

  4. We must have gotten the same storm you did. I was thrilled, because I'd put off watering the yard, hoping it would show up. Happy baking! I need to get over to Rachael's blog and see what the new challenge is.

  5. That is a charming muse, you lucky lady.
    I'm afraid the rain will come before I've got a proper cover for my car, but I do love fall and the new crispness in the air.

  6. How strange, my muse looks just like this. Probably because I'm rereading The Yearling.

  8. Oh, themed baking can be so much. Can't wait to see what you come up with for Halloween. I bake some kind of homemade goodie every week to bring to my father in the nursing home. It doesn't have to be any fancy. He's got a voracious sweet tooth.

  10. Gorgeous fawn - I love when they just wander into your yard like that! Sigh... I do miss woods and trees 'n' stuff!

    Good luck with the Challenge!

  11. C Lee, thanks so much for the vote! Have fun with the Halloween bake-off. I managed to make two pies with apples from our trees. Oh, and roast, sliced root veggies, including my turnips and parsnips. I do love fall.

  12. I love fall! It's my favorite season and it always inspires me. I hope it does the same for you. Now wait for that rain to stop and go pick your squash. ;D

  14. Beautiful muse :)

    I'm so happy it's finally cooling down here, and we're getting the rain we need after a long, dry summer! Good luck with your harvest :)

  15. Oh I love baking!!! For some odd reason I have the desire to make a zombie shaped cake using red velvet as the base cake... Hmmmm - I need to ponder this for a while now...

    My husband and I were married on Halloween - could be an anniversary cake hahahaha

Please say something to me, anything. Well, not anything, but a kind word will do.
