:: taking time to listen to a few heart whispers lately
:: settling into a new rhythm with andrew here and i am working on being okay with that
:: learning to be okay with ebbs and flows of creativity too

:: kinda feeling thankful for this down time...
:: life is over flowing in different ways, but creatively, i am good with it
:: rusty and lola are starting to get along a little better... i don't worry about him eating her
:: completely rearranged the living room twice in the past week..
:: officially started christmas shopping on saturday when i purchased a beautiful hand painted nightstand for lauren from my talented aunt at a craft show.

That last photo is bringing back childhood wood splitting memories.
I love fall too it's my favorite time of year.
Glad to hear things are good with your son and you guys are adjusting.
Can't wait to see what new item you knit, I just love them all.

IMPORTANT!!
THIS IS TO BE USED IN A HEAVY "BUNDT" PAN!!

Gee's Apple Cake

Mix, set aside:
4 good size Apples
1 cup Blueberries
2 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 tsp. nutmeg
1/2 cup sugar

Blend:
1 1/2 cup oil
6 eggs
3 cups sugar
2 tlbs. vanilla

Then Add:
4 1/2 cups flour
1 1/4 tsp. salt
4 1/2 tsp. baking powder

Pre-heat oven to 350'

Batter is VERY THICK! Pour half of the batter into a greased and floured bundt pan. Then spread the apple and blueberry mixture on top of that and then add the rest of the batter over the top of apples and blueberries. Place in middle of oven rack and bake for about a hour and 20 minutes. Knife should come out clean. Cool and tun up-side down on a good size baking sheet covered with foil or a cake plate if you have a good size one.

We keep our cake covered in the freig., we like it cold, or keep coved on counter.

Enjoy! Gee!

Oh my gosh! Your Mom posted her recipe!!! :-) I was just thinking that sounded yummy when I read your post! And I have never had that combination. I just finished off the last slice of chocolate chip pecan pie myself (and my the size looked like a 1/4 of the pie!). Wow, the big due date is getting closer...will be thinking of you on Thursday. I bet your Mom is exicted about it all.
I agree, a break maybe just the right thing. I'm not sure if the universe has been telling me to do the same thing, but creatively its been the same way here.
