This week was a wonderful reminder of why fall is my favorite season! The cool, rainy weather has been so refreshing after so many months of summer heat. The chilly mornings do make it harder to get out of bed in the morning, especially with a cuddly cat who'd like nothing more than for me to stay in bed all day, but I sleep so much better now that its cool, and steaming mug of my favorite chai tea usually helps ease my unwilling transition from a cozy bed to the work day!
Once again, my weekend was packed with fall foraging - after an epic harvest of elderberries last week, Andy and I came home from our Saturday hike with an equally impressive haul of the tiniest, sweetest blueberries. We baked half into the best blueberry tart we've ever eaten and the rest have been stashed in the freezer, destined for pancakes and muffins throughout the winter.
