I love autumn (I know I’m repeating myself). The fiery hues of the leaves alone make my heart sing and my camera eye want to capture their splendour, but nothing is better than when all of it is further illuminated by sunlight.
Yesterday was a nice break from the rain. Everything is fresh after a cleansing downpour, the air sweet with an earthy pungency.
This morning I was up bright and early to get some chilli started in the crock pot, the habaneros so potent they made my eyes water. I got home to the splendid smells of an almost cooked meal, whipping up the cornbread muffins and the lime-y sour cream. I love it when a plan (or, in this case, a meal) comes together.
