  1. Interesting Eats and Treats. A number of local delis here carry Krakus — now I’ll be looking for these rose hip ones. I see the package says limited edition!

  2. I must disagree with Miss Margaret, November is one of my favorite months. A time of turning inward, of warm fires, crisp apples and hoar frost covering the landscape. The time my world pulls a shawl over its shoulders and snug things beckon.
