  1. Pumpkin spiced lattes seem to be all the rage in the states. Never tried one, but they must be do darn good as everyone wants to capture that flavour! I’m amazed you still have pumpkin after thanksgiving. I’ve never seen do many varieties together in a home, 🙂 and it’s a great thing too!

      Ya, I guess its a USA thing! I think they are too sweet for my taste, I like a strong coffee without any flavour! Sweet things are meant for dessert! There always is an abundance of squash and pumpkins over here this time of year as they last for days and days and days!

  3. Thanks for letting me camp out in your blog for a little while today. I had a great time and tried to leave my campsite as good as when I arrived. I’ll be back in a couple of weeks!
