Rainy Days

The weeks are seeming shorter and shorter, every one flies by faster than the one before. Didn't I just ask how it could be Friday already? And here we are at the next one. I guess that's how the years fly by leaving us with the question, "Where did the time go?" Next week my youngest son will celebrate his 21st birthday. I honestly don't know where the years have gone.

Yesterday and today have been cold and rainy. November is settling in and I am grateful for the days I was able to spend outside this week. Autumn winds always leave me struggling with allergies but I don't think I would really want to trade fall for eternal summer. I love autumn too much.

The gray day and Ben's birthday gathering tomorrow evening will find me peeling apples and building pies today. (He made a request for both apple and pumpkin.) Tomorrow I will get out my fancy mixer and make pizza dough because I think it's time for another party. Maybe, just maybe if I keep gathering them all back every so often, my kids won't ever disappear completely.


  1. Lovely pies! Yum! Lauren's favorite is apple and I think I'll bake one for Thanksgiving, which is not my normal tradition. Maybe it will turn into one!

    I do find great pleasure in baking for my kids...especially the ones that only eat here once a week. Last week, Taylor saw his favorite ginger cookies and said, "I'm especially excited to see those cookies on the table!" Aw...loved that. :)

    Fall really is wonderful...the food, smells, colors, even the bluer than blue sky.

    1. I love fall. It's really the most beautiful time of all.

      And grown up kids, they bring great heartache and great satisfaction. I wouldn't trade them for anything.
