feels like fall

Finally, a Saturday to stay home and do the things we've neglected.   It was relaxing & refreshing to clean the house, play outside with Milton 
& break out the fall decor.
And since the "G" fit so nicely with the fall color scheme, 
I added it in, thanks to Brandon's suggestion.
Brandon finished building his workbench and did the grocery shopping for the week ahead.  I starting craving the flavors of fall after decorating our living room (I think it was the apple berry spice & pumpkin bread candles I lit).  I found this recipe for a pumpkin spice latte & tried it out with a few modifications. 

my take on the homemade pumpkin spice latte for two:
combine in sauce pan over medium heat
2 cups milk
4 T canned pumpkin puree 
1 t vanilla extract
1/2 t pumpkin pie spice
1 t sugar in the raw
1 cup cold coffee (leftover from what was brewed in the morning)
heat until frothy, using a wire whisk
pour into 2 mugs & top with whip cream (if you have it)
note: the pumpkin puree will settle if it stands for a while
What a great Saturday treat!
