settling into fall.

just got back from a very romantic, sweet weekend in Chicago. sorry as a result i haven't been around much. i am also trying to set limits on my online time. i plan to spend the next six months or so nesting - cooking, baking, getting through the last small piles of unorganized junk from the move here, knitting, reading, sewing, listening to NPR and my Pandora music stations. lots of time at home, and also getting out to do long walks and yoga classes.

i've been catching up on all of your blogs and i'm so glad you are a continual inspiration to me.

tomorrow night, i'm making vegan red lentil tacos. i've made them before, they are delicious! cooking truly makes me feel wonderful. i like knowing that i can sustain myself, and it's not some big, irresponsible company doing it.

here is the batter for some recent vegan blueberry cornmeal muffins. i love that vintage pyrex mixing bowl.

starting to think about holiday gifts: homemade peppermint bark (i think soulemama has a good recipe?), dishcloths, scarves, local and fair trade bits and bobs and sweet smelling soaps to fill packages with yum.

love and light to you this week. can't believe i'm already nearly a MONTH into the school year! oh me oh my!!

classroom fish, a betta!

  1. Hi Karen,

    Glad to hear you are doing well. Sounds like you have some great plans for fall. I try and follow your example and spend less time at the computer :-). But like you I get lots of inspiration from the blogs I read.
