I'm just popping in to say 'hello' and 'how are you'? It's been awhile since I posted here and today's post will be brief.
Since I wrote last we have been having quite a lot of inclement weather. Very dark skies and lots of rain. I would say we also have cooler temperatures than usual. We sure could have used the rain during the summer when all the wild fires were raging. Some parts of western Canada (northern British Columbia and Alberta) have even had snow yesterday and today and quite cold temperatures. We expect less rain and snow and warmer temperatures again soon and normal autumn temperatures to follow. The intense heat of the summer and sadly, my garden is pretty much done for the year. I plan to dig all the debris from the annuals up before the end of the month.

I happened to be walking by and saw that the market was underway, albeit much smaller than during the fullness of summer. I decided to have a quick look. I was on the hunt for bread or baked goods and there were some nice baked goods but no bread. In the end I bought 2 small tubs of hummus (one with beans and one with red pepper). I also bought one round package of vegan cheese. It is all very tasty but the vegan cheese as you can imagine is very pricey. By early October, the Farmer's Market will be finished for another year so I'm glad I made it to at least one market day.
The photo below is taken from a 7th floor window looking south. The high rise you see on the horizon is the one you sometimes see in photos from my balcony. You can see how threatening the sky looks but amazingly the sun came out late in the afternoon and it only rained a bit in early evening.
That's it for now friends. I'm feeling like an apple cake due to the coolish weather. I've made this cake a few times but the recipe is from a blog that is no longer public. I'll have to google a new recipe.
