Silly still life stills my life

Still life with hat
Kay Davies, October 1, 2016

I've been stressing over things the past few days, because my computer has been giving me  trouble, and decided I needed something to cheer me up.
A few minutes after I decided that, I walked past the kitchen island where we keep fruit and/or vegetables in a bowl, and noticed this straw sun-hat sitting amongst the squash.
Just for fun, I arranged the squash around the hat brim, and added a red bell pepper on top, for some colour. Just a silly thing to cheer me up.
And it did.
Names of squashes in order from left: Acorn, Spaghetti, Butternut, and one whose name I can never remember...a Kabocha Squash. Rather like "Ha gotcha, squash!"
Very silly, but the silliness cheered me up immensely. Maybe you'll laugh at my squashes, too.

Sometimes the simple things are enough for a smile. Keep on enjoying them and keep on smiling Kay. Remember: you have a fantastic holiday coming up!!

I like to eat butternut squash, but it is so hard to peel and cut. I buy a small one to saute with the curly kale from my garden. If I'm lazy, I buy a sweet potato to dice up instead. Quick and easy. - Margy

lovely Autumn veggies cheer me up too -- they're just fun to look at (although I've never had quite as much fun as you do here ;>) ... and they are so good to eat.
