Whatever I said earlier about fall creeping in, that was nothing compared to the sudden Kramer entrance this month. First rain, then frost, and everything’s turned red and gold. It’s time to stuff the wood stove with logs, glean the last fruits from the garden, and cozy up.

My farmer friends and I are delighted by the seasonal signal that we will soon get to sleep and catch up with the rest of our lives. I plan to slow down, reconnect with friends, and resume my other hobbies: music, art, and cooking. I still can’t play violin because my head dosen’t turn that far, but I’m enjoying the albums from this year. Sufjan Stevens’s Carrie & Lowell and Low’s Ones & Sixes are at the top of the list. Have you heard them? Click HERE to give Carrie & Lowell a listen.

Art work is directed towards work-work as I’m designing an Edition Menu for the Maximiliano dinner in December. Rob Beckstrom of SparePress, Ukiah and I are collaborating to create a menu worth saving for a dinner worth savoring.

As for cooking, I still can’t chop but I appreciate all the things that can be cooked whole. Stews, anyone? I’m posting recipes on the website, so if you’re feeling lost as to what to make for breakfast, lunch, or dinner, look at the Recipe page! And feel free to send me some to post.

Happy Fall!
