it will supposedly turn very cold soon
 so the last couple of days
i have been outside as much as possible 
soaking up the southerly rays
enjoying the fall colors that have finally reached the neighborhood
working in the dying garden 
collecting crunchy leaves in old metal bins.

yesterday was a good quiet day at home
and much like the above words.
but i also made a cake.
a very tall carrot cake from scratch 
with thick, sweet cream cheese icing.
the rhythmic sound of grating carrots
working with my hands
or just being in the sunny kitchen
is a blessing in itself.
(the cake went to the church thanksgiving dinner today...
and did not return.)
i really like saturdays at home.
it's been a while since I've been home on a saturday.
i like the quiet upstairs alone after dinner
while the others are down watching television.

40 weeks of sunsets, dear Abigail, and I haven't seen the same one twice. What a glorious assortment of patterns and colors this week. Last Sunday's sky is one of the most beautiful I've ever seen. How could anyone walk outside beneath that spectacular natural canopy and fail to look up in wonder and appreciation? Every picture fills me with serenity, as does the notion of you enjoying your sunny kitchen on a chilly day, smelling the ingredients as you made your carrot cake for the church dinner. All of your senses have come alive, making you eager to embrace each new day come what may - even a polar vortex. Please stay warm, hug your little sweetie pie Daisy and have a wonderful week, Abigail!

It is amazing how fast the year is passing. Soak up those rays and make the most of it before the cold sets on. And I just love carrot cake!

It is nice to have a quiet day at home. I had one last weekend after a very busy week, which was much needed! That carrot cake sounds delicious by the way!
