This time of year I want to cook like that. Donuts, Bubble and Squeak. Baked Beans. Those wonderful comforting cold weather foods. We have warm weather in the forecast this weekend, but I think Fall weather is just around the corner. Last night, while sitting out in the twilight, I thought I could smell the ghosts of wood fires and leaves. The smell of October.
Ben and Megan are going to Tehachapi this weekend to get apples. They are just the best kind of apples to eat or cook with. Thankfully they always bring me a box.
I wish I could get over my slump. I just have this burned out feeling on being creative. I don't know if it happened when we painted the house, or the road work, or the no privacy, but I just can't seem to get a handle on my lack of patience when it comes to those things I love to do. Or I thought I did.
I know that I will fight anxiety and fear for the rest of my life, but I will not let it win. So its all good.
I meant to write more than once a week. I have been waking up in the night writing blog posts, so I need to get that back in my life too.
I wish you the best kind of weekend and my prayers are for all of the people in the path of Matthew. May he just go out to sea.
Stay safe my friends,
