It’s a sunny, crisp fall day here in the woods and it’s Friday, so I am baking Challah for Shabbat Dinner tonight. This weekend I plan to relax a bit and do a little painting in my studio and outdoors- the fall colors are getting so gorgeous! I love this time of year when the citrus starts to fruit (in CA, anyways)…my Meyer Lemons are growing by the day! I am also growing hops to make beer with next summer (and the vines wilI hopefully turn into a canopy over my picnic table).

I hope you all have time to stop by the farmers market this weekend for some fresh flowers and find a moment to relax with a warming cocktail. I’ll be curled up by the fire with my favorite cinnamon spiced cold weather drink, The Skylonda (click here for the recipe).
