Fall Tracking – Week 7

Good morning!! How are you all doing? It’s Thanksgiving week and I have the week off, plus Monday and Tuesday so I am feeling pretty darn good. I’ve been cleaning the house and tossing stuff out. I am trying to get rid of some of the clutter that has accumulated over the months. Being home is fine and all that but one does collect things even though I am not really buying much of anything. How does that happen?

Today, I might make the cornbread for my favorite dressing recipe courtesy of Tyler Florence, Caramelized Onion Cornbread Stuffing. It’s filled with sage and smells so good when it’s done.


As you can see from the photo at the top of the page, the trees are actually changing color. My husband and I were driving around town and noticed quite a bit of color actually. This almost never happens in Southern California. It’s so beautiful.

Well, I am on a quest to find my next book to read. It might be Parable of the Sower. Check out this summary:

When global climate change and economic crises lead to social chaos in the early 2020s, California becomes full of dangers, from pervasive water shortage to masses of vagabonds who will do anything to live to see another day. Fifteen-year-old Lauren Olamina lives inside a gated community with her preacher father, family, and neighbors, sheltered from the surrounding anarchy. In a society where any vulnerability is a risk, she suffers from hyperempathy, a debilitating sensitivity to others’ emotions. – Indiebound

Uh, what do you think? Freaky, huh?

Tomorrow, I hope to have my review of The Weekend posted and then I will spend the rest of the day cooking. My son is coming for the meal but not sure how long he can stay. He has some school work to complete and he starts his new job on Saturday. We will make the best of it and do so in a safe, responsible way.

Have a great week.

  1. Nothing much going on here. We’re home for the week and I’m trying to write and catch up on reading. Nothing too exciting.

    I hope you have a great Thanksgiving

    1. This is my favorite time of the year so I am trying to enjoy every minute. Watching Hallmark movies at the moment, waiting for my daughter to get up.

  2. We don’t get much color changes on our trees either, but I keep looking for them every year.

    Glad your son gets to spend some time with you for Thanksgiving!

  3. I love this time of year with clear skies, mountains that feel that I can tough them, a crispness in the air, and walks on the beach at low tide. Ah, and a week off!

  4. What a beautiful photo of the sky & the trees. How I miss California! I hope you have a very Happy Thanksgiving with your family! A day with a great feast sounds so good! Glad you have a week off. Enjoy.

    1. Thank you!! I hope you are doing well and are not too cold yet. Still waiting for my son to show up. He never quite tells us when he is coming. Could be tomorrow, although I hope he shows up in a bit.

  5. Hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving!

    That is a gorgeous street! And lovely color. I’ll be curious to hear what you think of Parable of the Sower – I think I may have purchased a copy at one point but never actually read it. Loved Kindred too much that I’m worried another book might tarnish that memory lol, which is silly.

    1. I am about a quarter of the way into Parable and I am really into it. It’s quite different from Kindred.

      Hope you had a great Thanksgiving! It was a very strange day. We had damaging winds all day long and our power company sent us texts all day saying our power would be going out to prevent brush fires. Makes it hard to time dinner when the power can go out any minute. It held though.

      My son came, ate and left. Long drive for him in crazy weather but he got back safely.
