Carol’s Apple Spice Mix -- that would be the open jar with the spoon in it. The other jar is cream for the coffee.
Since it was so chilly, hot decaf coffee was definitely in order. I filled an insulated carafe with it and brought along a little jar filled with half-and-half cream, feeling quite like Gladys Taber as I did so. Remember how she and Jill would set out for a picnic spot with a thermos of coffee to accompany their al fresco meal? I would imagine there was a little jar of cream involved too, though I can't remember for sure. It's been ages since I've read one of her books, a situation I need to remedy soon!
I liked the look of the river as seen through these pretty red leaves.
Longtime readers will remember how Mr. T and I used to have a picnic by the river every Wednesday night! A different river, and many years ago. It was so nice to enjoy supper at a riverside picnic table again.
