In just a few more days it will be officially autumn in Michigan. The leaves are beginning to change here and there, and the crispness is already in the air. We took the bike out today for a ride… visiting our son in Waterford, then went through Clarkston, Holly, Fenton, Linden, Argentine, Gaines, Swartz Creek and back home to Flushing. It was a bit chilly riding, but not intolerable. We stopped at Panera Bread in Fenton and I tried the most delicious soup:
Yummy!!! I’ve been thinking about making soup lately, and this just furthered my desire to toss a soup together in the crock pot and let it simmer. Nothing like a good soup and some crusty bread! I found a recipe I really want to try:
Lemon chicken with Orzo. Mmmmmmm.

I decided I need to make myself a knitted scarf to wear riding… you know, one of those that you knit on a circular set of needles: A cowl scarf (it has no ending and no beginning). It will be a good project to work on in the evening when I’m too tired to do much more than sit. I probably won’t have it ready for this fall, but for cooler rides in spring it will be perfect. Here’s a simple pattern that looks good, though I think I want mine in black, grey and white:
I’m off to create the backing for my grandson’s quilt that I showed you earlier. Catch you later!
