Last week was one of those weeks. When I thought I'd already had my share of all that could go wrong, something else piled on top. Thank goodness for good friends! Because my husband was out of the country, for an entire week - seven days straight - at some point I needed someone else to care for my children so I could tend to this and that.

To you good ladies, please accept this gift of love you can taste. There's something about the air turning cold that means there should be something pumpkin-y in the oven and a warm drink simmering on the stove. Pumpkin chocolate chip cookies and apricot-apple cider - I tell you what - my house smelled goooood!

Thanks again, ladies! *big hugs*

  1. If you would have asked and I would have truly answered this is exactly what I would have hoped would be delivered to my door. I love pumpkin cookies, haven't made them yet this season. And cider. Oh be still my heart. I adore cider! Your was especially tasty I might add.
