Hello Aunt E, I am not dead.


I received an email recently from one of my very favorite people, my Aunt Elsie. 
She lovingly reminded me that she and her friend Carolyn (Hey y'all!) read my blog and that I had not posted since September 25th.
So just to clarify...
I am not dead in a New York alleyway, nor did I mean to take a blogging hiatus. 
One day turned into another and life managed to keep happening whether I made time to document it or not. 
But I do so enjoy the documenting. 
The coming here and seeing words and photos and memories meld into one another. 
A lot of memories have been made since September 25. I'll get to them soon, promise. 

But now, a list...

1My entry table is home to pumpkins and spiced cider candles. Happy welcome. 
2I can't decide if I'm going to carve the orange pumpkin or let it be. 
3My friend Leah met Donald Trump last week. That has nothing to do with pumpkins.

4I went apple picking not once, but twice this year. 
5Today is for apple pie and apple butter making. We've got apples for days over here. 
6Is it too early to start dreaming up Christmas cards? Because I totally am. Ours might be apple-themed. 
7On repeat

Settle down, it'll all be clear
Don't pay no mind to the demons
They fill you with fear
The trouble it might drag you down
If you get lost, you can always be found
Just know you’re not alone
Cause I’m going to make this place your home


 Happy Tuesday, friends.
