It’s Here Again!

It’s fall officially at our house when the wreath on the door changes, and the acorn people emerge from the cabinet where they patiently wait all year. Emily fished out the pumpkin spice candles for the end tables, so we are all set.

We had a nice period of cool, crisp weather here in SE Wisconsin, but the warmth is returning. Tomorrow, and we are supposed to be in the 80’s again. But the leaves in our neck of the woods are turning early. The route to Emily’s school was startling today with the leaves turning gold much earlier this year.

I’ll save pumpkin buying for porch decorations another week or two. I have to save something for later! Like a lot of people, this is my favorite time of year in our part of the country. It isn’t spring or summer that provide renewed vigor. It’s always this time of year that can’t be surpassed.

Each autumn, (this is my seventh year doing so!)  I post the recipe for my favorite spice cake.  It will make your home redolent with delicious aromas. It makes a really delicious, moist cake if you don’t over bake it!  Happy autumn, everyone!

    Yeah for fall!! We have had spectacular weather here in Oklahoma. August was like nothing we’ve ever experienced before…cool mornings and only hitting in the 70’s-80’s with a beneficial amount of rain. I also noticed some trees with different shades of color on them as well.
    I, too, have placed our two metal pumpkins in the front yard along with the “autumn blessings”
    display hanging proudly off one of our doors. Such a wonderful time of year. Praise the Lord
    for cooler weather…

    Hoorah for autumn!! It’s so beautiful that it makes me wonder if there was autumn in God’s original creation. But, thank the Lord, He allowed such beauty even after The Fall.

    Thank you so much for this recipe!!! My mother reminisces about a special spice cake that was part of family gatherings when she was a girl… but the recipe was lost years ago after my grandma passed away.

    I just made this cake for my mom’s 82nd birthday, and she absolutely loved it (so did I!).
    This recipe is a keeper for sure. Thank you!!!!
