Colors like this are what I miss most here in California, even some thirty years after moving here. Thankfully our weather has turned a little cooler, becoming downright chilly overnight.
It has been a busy, busy time. We gave the wedding shower this weekend, and it was a great success. Determined to make it lovely and fun and special, we decorated, planned, and prepared food. I made two fabulous cheesecakes, pumpkin swirl and oreo cookie. I only tasted the tiniest bit of each one since they are the stuff of diet sabotage. I got to know my nephew's fiance Jean a little bit better, and she is delightful. She loved the quilt we made for her, and it made me so glad that we have that as a family tradition.
Our other nephew's wife Anne is in the hospital and things are not going well. We are heartsick about this, words just fail. Short of a miracle, we pray for peace and strength.
