The cool rainy days of fall typical here in the Pacific NW have returned -- days that make settling back into the routine of lessons around the kitchen table, cozy afternoons reading by the fire, and earlier bedtimes easy. Life slows down. Morning comes later and later with each passing day, and the afternoons grow shorter. I love fall.
Of the many, many reasons that I love fall, a simmering pot of soup or stew on the stove is one of my favorites.
Soup is the song of the hearth... and the home.
~Louis P. De Gouy, 'The Soup Book' (1949)

For what are you thankful today?

Rejoice always; pray without ceasing; in everything give thanks; for this is God's will for you in Christ Jesus. ~I Thessalonians 5:16-18
