Happy days are here again, though I feel like I am looking at my children with new eyes.
I woke this morning and watched the sun slowly peek up from the edge of the horizon until it was a big orange fire ball that spread pinky puffy swirls across the sky. There was no rush to ready the kids for school as we changed the clocks, it made me happy. I suppose I am in the minority with liking the changing of the clocks as I keep hearing complaints. The dark evenings don’t bother me, it’s nice to all be snug in the house.
It seems like I didn’t really sit down the whole month of October. Now all of a sudden everything is winding down—all the sports and activities…just as much as I enjoy it when it all starts… I enjoy it when it all goes away.
Little Sam turned 13 a few days ago. He’s a teenager! That means Ken and I are outnumbered. Three teenagers at once?
He asked for cherry cheesecake. Did you know there are 13 letters in “Happy Birthday”? Did you know those candles cost too much and burned up before he had a chance to blow them all out?
He didn’t seem to mind.
Hope you are enjoying November. Are you feeling Christmasy like me? I want carols and holly and sleigh bells jingling.
PS This is a relatively easy cheesecake recipe that doesn’t need 6 eggs or 4 boxes of cream cheese. I like to add a tsp of almond extract. It’s Sam’s favorite!
