Fall in Virginia

The area has been taken hold by much cooler temperatures and a brisk breeze. It's definitely hoodie time. I love hoodies. I love Fall. I cannot wait for a hot cup of something caffeinated to be in my hands as I walk the streets of Olde Towne on a Saturday. There is just so much to do and so much to see.

This weekend its Schooner Days. There are at least 40 schooner rigged vessels moored at the either the High Street Landing or the North Landing. There are historical displays to see, period dressed docents to talk to, shops to visit, Sea Shanty songs to listen to, and sea fare at more than 14 different restaurants. A Farmer's Market is set in the midst of the fun.

There will be Wine Tote making this afternoon. These fully lined, handled wine totes are made from the cutest all cotton fabric in Halloween and Fall themes. They make a great gift to Boo someone with a nice bottle of wine.

(Again, I apologize for the lack of pictures. It will be remedied soon.)

There will also be some baking. There is nothing I like more than baking in the Fall. I am making something I dreamed of. I don't know whether it will work or not...but I am making...are you ready for this...

I am making Sweet Potato and Cinnamon Apple Short Cakes with vanilla cream. Just like Strawberry Shortcakes but all dressed for Fall. Can you imagine? I will be drizzling a little caramel over the cream to give it that certain...Je ne sais quoi.

If all goes well, I hope to have a new recipe to share with you next will be my little Fall gift to you and even if it is not Fall where you are, it will help bring Fall right to you.

I also might through some football into my day and definitely spending some time with my love and his brother. It's always fun when the boys are together in the house.

Enjoy your weekend!!!

This is Home Girl and I am going to enjoy this Fall day to its fullest.
