Happy Halloween! These cinnamon rolls started out headed to the freezer for the busy month of November. Then they looked so good they convinced how good they would taste for Sunday breakfast. Then a sneaky hand grabbed one and they became Saturday lunch---with leftovers for breakfast in the morning. Have a great Halloween!

There are ghosts in this picture. You can't see them in this uploaded image, but I can--and visitors to my house have verified they are there. It was taken in the dungeon--yes, dungeon--of the Charleston Exchange building and our guide said the cell once held pirates--yes, pirates--in the 17th century. I took the picture and when I developed it--there are images of people in chains---yes, chains. So----I have a picture of ghosts and I cannot explain it. Dan, ever the skeptic, thinks they are painted images---but why wouldn't I have seen these painted images when I took the picture.

Halloween is almost here----and I keep thinking it would be kind of fun to be back in Charleston for Halloween night. They have plenty of ghost tours to go on-----and some of the most fascinating graveyards I have seen. Some are overgrown by choice and some contain some famous occupants. But all were lovely------during the day!

And as I'm looking at the colour of the leaves, in your hand
As we're listening to Chet Baker on the beach, in the sand
When the leaves come falling down,
Woe in September, when the leaves come falling down
Oh when the leaves come falling down
Yeah in September when the leaves come falling down
From "When the Leaves come Falling Down" by Van Morrison
Can't get enough of Autumn. Can't get enough of taking pictures of leaves. I loved the gazebo with the leaf roof. Can't get enough of Van Morrison either. The song above inspired me to buy a Chet Baker CD many years ago---and now---I can't get enough of Chet Baker either!

I made my Hungarian Pastry dough the other day and then the next day found this special picture. It was taken(probably) in 2001 and shows my mom teaching Adam to make pastries. I love everything about this picture---my Mom's old pastry board, her smile and most especially the way her experienced hands are poised and ready to show Adam how to roll up those crescent shaped treats.And I can almost read her lips----giving Adam encouragement on his technique. Adam---if you read this I want you to know that the dough is ready for you to come over and finish up the pastries. Judging from this picture, you look like an expert!
