Good morning friends! How are you? Today is the 19th anniversary of September 11th, a day that is etched in the minds of us all. Nineteen years later I can still remember exactly where I was when it all happened. My thoughts and prayers are with all of those who lost their lives and their families today.
I have officially moved on to Fall, even though it is still horribly humid and hot here and Fall does not officially start until September 22nd. I am in the fall mindset, cosy candlelit evenings, piles of books and magazines, comfort food and copious amounts of hot chocolate. I have lots to share today, I hope that you find something that you enjoy.
I love an easy dinner recipe and this Chicken Larb Bowl from What’s Gabby Cooking is perfect.
Beef Stewis the ultimate Fall comfort food, this recipe is from Recipetin Eats.
Doesn’t this Braised Pork with Cheesy Grits from Midwest Living look great.
Pumpkin Ginger Soup, my favorite!
Pumpkin Bars with Whipped Cream Cheese Frosting
Pumpkin Pie White Hot Chocolate

I love Danielle Rollins her books and design is collected, beautiful, unique and more. Her new book came out yesterday and I think it is a fabulous Christmas gift.
This history of two transformative years in the life of a nation features countless characters, from an aging butler to a pair of newlyweds, from the Prince of Wales to T. E. Lawrence, the real-life Lawrence of Arabia. The Great Silence depicts a nation fighting the forces that threaten to tear it apart and discovering the common bonds that hold it together.
Wait for Me! is written with intense warmth, charm, and perception. A unique portrait of an age of tumult, splendor, and change, it is also an unprecedented look at the rhythms of life inside one of the great aristocratic families of England. With its razor-sharp portraits of the Duchess’s many friends and cohorts—politicians, writers, artists, sportsmen—it is truly irresistible reading, and will join the shelf of Mitford classics to delight readers for years to come.
In this New York Times bestseller, two women in different eras face similar life-altering decisions, the politics of exclusion, the terrible choices we face in wartime, and the redemptive power of love.
I love a great spelling candle.
That is it for this week. I hope my friends are family on the West coast stay safe from the fires and the smoke and that all of us stay safe from Covid-19.
Have a wonderful weekend.
Thank you for some wonderful Friday finds

It's strange to think that it's been that long since 9/11.
I really must read The Great Silence – have put on my list!
Can't find a Target that has the cute doormat, boohoo!
Pumpkin bars look delish – I'm starting my annual pumpkin bread baking soon.
I have family and friends in Calif. and are concerned about the expanding fires – really terrifying to see them burning on TV. My second cousin lost her home in the Redding, CA fire two years ago – and she's getting nervous again as she's still in that area. As much as I'm nervous about hurricanes and tornadoes, I couldn't live where there are such horrifying fires!
Enjoy your weekend dear Elizabeth. Showers here today and through the weekend.

Love the mug! I was just out. The past two days you could drive around with your windows down, oddly enough.
