Right now, as I gather the photos for this post, the air coming through the windows is cool and there is a scent of burning wood. It's officially fall, and officially, my favorite time of the year!
the Etsy shop. I had some really great pieces for sale that sold in less than 12 hours of being listed. I thought about saving all the listings as drafts and do a grand-reopening of the shop once it was fully stocked, but, hey, a sale is a sale, and as they say, time is money!
Thanks to everyone who has supported me and purchased items from the shop. It's really a labor of love and I really appreciate your patronage.

On Saturday, we kicked off the autumnal equinox by taking part in an Indian festival in Philadelphia called Ratha Yatra. Three large, brightly colored chariots paraded down the Ben Franklin Parkway form city hall to the art museum. We had some yummy vegan Indian food and were able to watch my bff's super talented daughter dance at the festival site.
The Joy of Vegan Baking (I added dried cherries and almonds) and donuts from Vegan Yum Yum for friends (I forgot to photograph those; very unlike me!). I didn't even taste one of the donuts, but one of the friends said, "Seriously, those were some f'in righteous donuts." I'll have to make a batch for the kids so I can try them for myself.
This recipe for polkanes (a fried corn fritter) was included and is now on my list of new foods to make.
downtown Media, PA where I saw this candy shop sign. They have been in business for over 50 years! I love the wording, "own make candy." Overall, it was a pretty sweet weekend.
