Cozy November


Cozy times, these mid-November mornings...  It seems the beauty this year just continues to pour out!  Even fallen, crisp, and win-tossed, the loveliness wraps around every tree base...  A few sunny moments at the lake yesterday brought time to think, plan, and spread my arms in true Thanksgiving.

This morning the sunshine quickly tempered last night's cold..  A clear and moonlit frost had spread over the earth while most of us snuggled, warm and cozy.   Mom has been hungering for cherry pie for three weeks...  Today was the day.  I'd love to take full credit, but dear Mrs. smith was more responsible than I!  A lovely friend an deader of this blog(you know who you are, NM) once gave yes a hint to transfer store purchased pies while frozen to a glass pie pan.  There's no looking back if you try that tip.  Crusts are flakier...  It's prettier.  The pie cuts beautifully...  Just try it!

I used tiny crystal dishes, part of a fruit cocktail set from my grandmother...  And of course I added a scoop of vanilla bean ice cream...

I love the fall pictures that you posted, Gayla. I guess I just love leaves, colorful leaves, all on the ground. I love to walk in them. Do you?

I love finding a fellow Missourian in Blog Land! I have been browsing some new (to me) blogs this morning. I live in mid-Missouri, too, not terribly far from you. I'll just say that I shop in Moberly every now and then! Due to my hubby's fear of the paparazzi showing up at our door (just kidding!), I don't mention our town's name on my blog. Anyway, you have a nice blog and I will be your newest follower. Hope you'll drop by and see me at my blog sometime!
