Once again, it’s time for Three Things Thursday, the purpose of which is to “share three things from the previous week that made you smile or laugh or appreciate the awesome of your life.”
It’s Pumpkin Thursday!
It’s fall, or the Season of the Pumpkin.

Awesome Pumpkin #1
This is the centerpiece from our table at last night’s quarterly dinner for independent-living residents here at Franke Tobey Jones. These dinners are always awesome for two reasons:
(1) They are about the only time when all of us from the three independent-living sections get together. It’s good to see a lot of people I don’t often cross paths with in other activities.
(2) The food is always very good. This time Chef Tim presented us with the following menu:
mixed green salad with berries and raspberry vinegarette dressing
salmon Louie (salmon smothered in crab)
roasted pork loin in mustard sauce
couscous with carrot chunks
apple turnovers with optional toppings: caramel, cinnamon whipped cream, and walnuts
Awesome Pumpkin #2
On our trip to Winthrop, WA, we stopped at Sherry’s Sweets downtown for some ice cream. There were so many tempting flavors that I couldn’t pick just one. After much deliberation, I went with two seasonal favorites, pumpkin and wild blackberry. They were so good that I still can’t stop thinking about them.
Awesome Pumpkin #3
Yes, it’s time for pumpkin spice coffee once again. I’ll change things up occasionally with a cup of Trader Joe’s pumpkin chai tea.
Until next week, I wish all of you a big dose of awesomeness!
