Record wildfires in the west have everyone choked up. Three weeks of breathing smoke and they say the smoke may continue for another month. I just scratch my head. Someday wildfires will be controlled burns, better land management, and quick response. Why can’t fires be put out when they are just one acre? Seriously, what would be the problem with having a large fleet of planes and helicopters equipped to just fight fires. With the past several years of fires all across our country, you would think this to be a priority. Where is the common sense in this destruction?
Becca, started her second year of college today. Mostly she goes just cause she can, its challenging and fun. I’m so proud that she can do it and get good grades. Next she’ll want me to send her out the door each morning with her lunch box packed and a cup of coffee in hand.
We are winding down the gardens here. So far things are still growing good in our garden, however several of our friends in the valley have been hit by frost already. The pumpkins and the squash are just about ready, and you know what that means. Yep it’s Fall !!! Hard to believe, but the smell of apple pie and apple sauce cooking is just around the corner. I might say this about every season, but I am really looking forward to the cooler weather and the changing of the leaves.

Steven’s Carrot Cake Cheesecake Recipe.
If you love carrot cake as much as I do, I’m sure you will be ecstatic about this twist on an already good traditional recipe.
Get creative when layering the carrot cake and cheesecake; making sure that a layer of cheesecake is on top.
Becca’s Orange Zucchini Fritter Recipe.
Though they were no longer warm by the time we finished snapping photos,
the fritters filled with sweet bites of orange, with a swirl of cinnamon, cloves and nutmeg, were fabulous.
Thought for Today,
One small crack does not mean that you are broken.
It means that you were put to the test and you didn’t fall apart.
