2017 Something New: It’s Autumn Again!

    Fall is upon us.  The temperatures fell this week and my basil and cannas are worse for wear.  I made pesto at the last minute to save as much basil as possible and I have faith the cannas will be back in the spring. I have a great Chicken Caprese recipe to try out tonight.  Cool weather makes me want to cook – and eat. So, I must exercise more to counter act the inevitable.

It is a time when we tie up loose ends of the growing season and plan for next year.  We snuggle down and do indoor projects or put on woolen sweaters and brave the cold.  I still plan to walk the dog even if it is cold. (my husband says it is cool).

I had a very successful book signing yesterday at the Enid Public Library promoting my latest Return to Glome’s Valley and now I’m back working on my current work in progress.

I purchased the Halloween candy this week and paid way too much.  I know my neighborhood and even with a 30% chance of rain, I’m sure the goblins will be out in force.

And that means the holidays are right around the corner. I think my days of hosting the big Thanksgiving Feast are over, and that is okay.  I’ve worked hard enough, and it is time for the next generation to take over.  I will bake pies and vegetable casseroles and show up at the correct time.

My friend is having a garage sale next weekend and I’m helping prepare for that.  It is a good opportunity for me to clean out some items I don’t need and maybe someone else does. I will be working at the sale next weekend and making a big pot of vegetable soup to help keep us warm (here I go thinking of cooking again).

Fall is a time of transition – a time to slow down and rest as nature intended.  So why do I feel energized? I think I’ll make a banana bread today.
