I can’t say that I’ve been focused on anything this week but Irma. I know I don’t live anywhere near Florida, but my family and friends still live there, and they all decided to stay put. It’s bringing back memories of Andrew and Katrina, not the good kind, and I’ve just found myself on edge all week. If you’re down there, stay safe. I’m praying for you: before, during and after.
Fall is here and that does bring back good memories and excitement for the season. Still haven’t set that date for apple picking, but I’m on top of it anyway with these apple waffles. More fabulous fall foods to come.
In the meantime….

Buy yourself a hugeass, “just for you” mug with a puppy or a snarky saying on it. Yes, and other ways to see the light when you’re stuck in darkness.
I’m too old for this s*it. Yup, I am. #Thisis36.
That’s all I’ve got. Good luck this week- you can do it.
