What an interesting time of year. The quality of sunlight gets a little weird, the moon is on the wane again, snowy skies (whether it falls or not), firing up the woodstove, baking pies, praying, singing, and getting things in order. Yep. Lots of yummy things to share with you. Thanks for being along for the ride.
