autumn grows, autumn in everything

Everything feels autumnal, lately. The weather has obligingly cooled off, and I am craving the color orange.

Luckily, that's not so hard.

Second fire of the season.

Crackling fire accompanied by pumpkin pancakes, applewood smoked bacon, maple syrup, eggs over medium, Arizona Stronghold's Tazi, and coffee with a dash of Bailey's.

I'm going to say this only once, so pay attention: Trader Joe's Pumpkin Pancake and Waffle Mix is divine. Bless yourself and purchase it immediately.

And Tak, who is gorgeous in all seasons, but seems especially so now, given how she matches.


  1. I've been dreaming of fireplaces lately, especially after a week without power. Yours is beautiful, and I'm envious.

    Also, Tak is gorgeous. I am also envious of her.

  2. I love our fireplace this time of year, too. Wish you could be here for a proper Midwestern autumn!
