Over the Open Flame






I stood in the kitchen, the autumn light streaking across the counter. The smell of smoke soon wafted in through the open window. He had started a fire. It seemed so perfect as I peeled apples in preparation for lunch. I called him in, and as my little man played busily in the other room, quietly asked if he could carve up a couple of sticks. Of course, he said. I got busy peeling a few more apples, added a sprinkle or two of cinnamon and asked my little man to join us outside.

Around the fire we stood, sticks in hand, apples over the fire. A little fall treat on a beautiful fall afternoon.

Welcome fall, we are so happy you are here.

  2. What a great idea- we have so many apples on our trees, building an afternoon fire for roasting apples would be the perfect snack time.

  5. Nice treat over the open flame!

    Since I've gotten older I have become more acutely aware of the seasons. I love living with the passing changes.
