Sounds like a perfect night indeed for a bonfire, Gail. And the cupcakes sound scrumptious.
I'm guessing that Canadian relatives used to send my mother canned pumpkin because even yet with globalisation it's something I don't see here. I know one store that might just have it this time of year, though - I should check.
Love woodsmoke smell - not so sure about smelling of it myself, though, LOL.
DH was at an officers meeting for the Christian Motorcyclists Association the other night and he came home reeking of smoke. That must have been one smoky fire!!!
