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.
