+[settling in for the season]+

Its fall break from school this week so we are taking the time to enjoy some fieldtrips we havent made time for previously. You can read about those (like Peyton and my trip to tour Celestial Seasonings today) on the homeschool blog, if interested.

Otherwise, all there is to report is lots of climbing into bed early with books on these cold evenings. Flannel sheets and Nutcracker Sweet tea are common denominators in every room. Fireplaces are lit, dry leaves crunch in the swirling wind outside, lamps and candles are aglow and somehow I can feel that we are all settling in for the season.

My favorite meal right now is Honeycrisp apples with extra sharp cheddar.  Proof that Im nesting.
