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!
