The rhythm of our days is changing; we are noticing the tumbling sunset times as the children have to say ‘goodbye’ to their friends at the gate sooner and sooner each night. The sun has made a comeback, and how, this week, but we’ve noticed the cooler air at night. Nature is readying herself – the signs are there – for the Harvest Moon that is now upon us and the equinox which is a whisker away. Damn, those Maples sure are keen.

And other things make a return too: old winter favourites – stews, broth, roasts. I know come spring I will be ready for fresh food again, but the thought of comfort food in the form of rice pudding and dumplings is a real sweetener…

And candles at the dinner table. They make a return.

Ah, autumn, you are most welcome.
