As the name of my blog indicates, I spend a lot of time thinking about home. Of course, my Heavenly Home is the one that is eternal, so that’s where I need to lay up my treasures, and that’s the one I’m striving for. But in the meantime, I have been given this tiny piece of the here-and-now—this nearly six-acre tract of land, this farmhouse, this domain—in which to serve Him. And, though this is in the earthly realm, I want the things that happen here to be investments in the Heavenly realm.

gather. {pumpkin}




I have never met a pumpkin I did not like love. 




I love pumpkin spice iced coffee from Dunkin Donut. I love pumpkin muffins. I love Kati's pumpkin cake. (And I'm glad she makes one for her birthday every year). (Yes, the girl makes her own birthday cake.) (Because my layer cakes are...well...not always successful?) I love the pumpkin roll that my sister makes. I love pumpkin waffles. And did I mention pumpkin bread

Pumpkin candles are the bomb. I buy them on clearance in December so I have a stash when autumn rolls around again.


Do you gather pumpkin flavors and scents too? Or are you like my friend Becky who feels like this...

  1. I agree! Love all of it - EXCEPT pumpkin pie! Pumpkin cheesecake, pumpkin yogurt, all the things you mentioned - yum. Oh, and the candles are divine. I am going to keep my eye out for some on sale after Thanksgiving so I can stock up. I did that after Christmas last year and have several Bath & Body Balsam candles ready for Christmastime. Do you all have Dairy Queens? They have a seasonal Pumpkin Pie Blizzard that I look forward to all year. Try it if you can.

  4. I like much that is pumpkin and my favorite is pumpkin black bean soup. I also love to stir pumpkin into meals I'm making or add to soup.

  6. I love pumpkin everything! Yum! We've already had pumpkin coffee, muffins, bread, doughnuts scones and cake. :-)

    Wish we could have pumpkin scented candles, but hubby has bad asthma and he can't be around artificial scents. :-(

    Still on the list to make is pumpkin pie, waffles and pancakes.
    Yum!

  7. I have to admit - no, I don't. I like the taste of various pumpkin dishes, but artificial pumpkin scents usually seem off to me somehow. And I have been known to spit out pumpkin flavor coffee. Ugh... LOL!
