We'll leave the light on for you.

Our day started with a thick, soupy fog, and much cooler weather than we have had in several weeks.
Rain is falling, and predicted for the next couple of days.
Of all days, I had appointments to keep, and putting them on hold wasn't an option.
The shopkeepers down on Main Street are displaying their Fall wares and decorations, Oktoberfest is in full swing.

“It was one of those sumptuous days when the world is full of autumn muskiness and tangy, crisp perfection: vivid blue sky, deep green fields, leaves in a thousand luminous hues. It is a truly astounding sight when every tree in a landscape becomes individual, when each winding back highway and plump hillside is suddenly and infinitely splashed with every sharp shade that nature can bestow - flaming scarlet, lustrous gold, throbbing vermilion, fiery orange.”

Summer Days have not yet took their leave.
The most perfect of Autumn days today, blue skies and sunshine galore.
Our rainfall has been little to none for an entire month, many of the trees have already lost their brown leaves prematurely.
There has been much sickness in the household, but hopefully after many trips to the doctor, and many potions offered, we are beginning to show improvement.
The air conditioner continues to hum......

Our days seem to have reverted back to Summer temperatures, warm and breezy.
Later this evening thunderstorms are to move in, not my favorite type of weather, especially when tornadoes are in the prediction.
Walking about the garden tidying up any potential objects that may become hazardous in 60 mph winds, I noticed the Clematis vine is once again in bloom, the third time this year !
Such a gentle, giving vine, sharing her beauty for one last smile.

Almost as popular as traditional Pecan Pie, this delicious Japanese Fruit Pie graces many dinner tables here in the South.The combination of pecans, raisins, and coconut suspended in a chess-pie type of filling is wonderfully rich and toothsome.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
In a medium mixing bowl combine eggs, butter, sugar, vinegar and vanilla extract.
Bake in preheated oven for 40 minutes. Cool before serving.
