a walk in the woods…

granola pancakes, bacon, eggs and a cup of Earl Grey at Coho Cafe…

and, of course, the traditional stop at Lou’s Fish House for the best beef jerky know to man…

Our little journey “Up North” was coming to a close…and I’m always sorry to see our time at the shore end. Lake Superior is definitely a sacred place for me. But, it was nice to get home and start settling in to Autumn. I love everything about this time of year. The decorating, dusting off board games, unearthing sweaters and other wooly things from the depths of the attic and from the backs of closets, baking pumpkin bread and apple pie and other wonderful spicy, fragrant treats. Oh, and let’s not forget the obsessive soup making that ensues as soon as September hits. Do you do this? I will be making a pot of soup every week until Gracie is out of school for the summer again. I don’t know what the heck is up with that, but I love it.

Today I have the house to myself. I’ll be working on the novel, drinking lots of tea, talking to an editor friend about (possibly) shopping for an agent…Haven’t made up my mind if I want one of those yet…and then treating myself to an antiquing/thrifting adventure downtown Red Wing before Gracie gets home.

I’m definitely thinking chicken stew with dumplings in on the dinner menu this evening.

What are you up to?

Have a beautiful week!
