The fog is so thick in the Shire today. The moisture drips from the trees like rain, falling on the leaf covered ground. My persimmons are ripening to a syrupy translucent orange on my counter. Time to puree them and make that delicious bourbon bread for Christmas morning (or afternoon tea!). Thanksgiving has come and gone, the busy month of December is upon us. Vatrena King's concerts are nearly here! December 18th is her "Gratitude Concert" here in Davis and it will be such a magical way to celebrate community during the holidays. These are some of my last quiet moments before the rush of it all. A pot of ham and split pea soup is simmering on the stove to welcome the kids in from a cold day. Oliver loves to build a fire, Molly tidy's the house and "Peter Pan and Wendy" is read before bed. Yummy.
