Castle Hill

Over the castle on the hill...

{Castle on the Hill - Ed Sheeran}

Castle Hill on the Crane Estate has been on my "too see in MA" bucket list for ages. It's a gorgeous property up in Ipswich, overlooking the water.

It was a summer home to the wealthy Crane family from Chicago. They had the 59 room mansion built atop the hill with acres of planned gardens and views of the oceans below.

The signature part of the estate might just be the Grand Allee - the rolling lawn from the home to the cliff overlooking Crane Beach.

It was so stunning up there. I can only imagine calling that home and having those grounds to walk around!

The Good. The Random. The Fun. v. 46

The Good:
I helped run an event at Maimo's Yom Chesed. We packaged Thanksgiving gift bags for families who receive food from the local Kosher food pantry. Lots of hand print turkeys and pumpkin cans going to good use. 

The Random:
There is this fun fluffy cloud at a local shopping area. He just makes me smile.

The Fun:
My kiddies this year love cursive. I think they actually like getting to use chalk and a chalkboard a bit more than the actual skill, but I'll take it!

Scav Hunt Sunday: Mac and Mustang

 Sometimes all you can muster to whip up is boxed gluten-free and vegan mac and cheese.

Rust:
 Rust - helping some bits and bobs age with grace.

Yellow:
Stumbled upon this amazing yellow Mustang - classic and showy!

Orange:
Those orange glue sticks. They are all over my room. I find them everywhere!

Clean:
Crisp clean clips.

Cream of Carrot Soup

There are some foods that I just must make as each season arrives again. With the first hint of color on the trees and a chill in the air I get so excited to make this soup.
 I've adored this soup since I was a child and have fond memories of mom making it during Sukkot to serve to our company. It sounds so fancy and involved, but in reality is a breeze to make and a sure hit. 
Serve it hot. Serve it cold. Add toppings. Make it dairy. Make it vegan. The options are endless and can only enhance this amazing recipe. 
For me...all it needs is a good crack of fresh pepper and a sprinkle of sea salt. I enjoy it warm as the evenings get chilled and savor every spoonful.

Autumnal Beauties

Is it that it's over or do birds still sing for you?
Float down...
Like autumn leaves...

{Ed Sheeran - Autumn Leaves}

As much as I love winter and snow...fall is a close second. 

The crisp air. The change in scenery. 

The pumpkins. The leaves. The gourds. 

Fall is fleeting in Boston, either late or early, but usually short lived. I've been soaking it up now that it's here!
