Pretty Fall Days

It has been just a beautiful fall here in Oregon! The days have been warm and sunny and windy!

After days of strong east winds, the trees are getting a little more sparse.  Oh, but there are lots of leaves left to fall!

The wind piles the leaves up against Jim's cottage...they are piling up.!

I decided to do a bit of baking to enjoy a bit of tea today. Something for me and something for Jimmy.

I've been experimenting with almond flour. The tea bread is a pumpkin spice almond flour bread.
It's very moist and has a lot of flavor. It only has 2-3 T of honey, no sugar. I had a 1/2 can of pumpkin, so made Jim some soft drop pumpkin cookies with an old fashion butter cream frosting. YUMMY.

I have had these pumpkin mugs for over 40 years. I got them at the Oregon State fair when we were first married. I have used them every year.

My friend LaVonne gifted me with this darling acorn teapot. I brewed a chai tea by Stash-mild and delightful.

Our weatherman says we will have about 5 more days of this lovely weather.

What a joy to visit and see your wonderful acorn cups and teapot. Such a beautiful setting with the added bonus of seasonal goodies. Take care.

So nice to get a little peek of fall from your state. We don't usually get to see the leaves turning till later in November. We went from temps in the 90's last week to cold and rainy and in the 40's this week. Where is my nice "sweater weather"? I will have to try that almond flour. Is it low in carbs? I have to watch that and the sugar. Enjoy your fall days!
