Pumpkin soup and family ties....

Last night we spend the evening with Amy and David. (Philip's daughter and son in law.) He cooked down the Halloween pumpkin (I don't think it was the one that was lit on the front porch!, added leftover Christmas ham, sprinkled toasted pecans on top and pumpkin soup was born. All the family gathered as we sat around their small table knocking knees together sharing homemade bread, drinking wine. At one point Philip said we looked like a European family all sharing around the table.

We played games til the wee hours, then traveled home through the dark streets of the island. It was a wonderful night!

When she is home at the White Picket Gardens you can find her gardening or writing late into the night under the light of her frayed scarlet lamp. She is a storyteller, a teacher, a writer, an actress and a collector of front porch stories.
