1; I try and avoid grains most of the time because I have arthritis and feel better when I don't eat them. If the craving hits though, there is nothing better than gluten free toast with homemade kumquat marmalade and a cup of tea brewed in this cute teapot I got in England a couple of summers ago.
2; This morning on my way out to take my daughter to school, I noticed the first camellia bloom. It seems early.
3; It's pumpkin season and Trader Joe's has these delicious little pumpkin and dried cranberry crisps.
4; My tomato plants, although looking really scraggly, are still producing lots of beautiful sweet tomatoes.
5; Really, is there anything better than a cat on windowsill? This is Princess and she is.
