Golden light under bright blue skies, caramel apples sticky and slightly burnt, a baby boy cow named Elmo that nudged and licked Max so much he thought he might just eat him for lunch, finding apples in the far end of the orchard that everyone thought was overpicked: beautiful pink lady apples, crisp and slightly sour in their sweetness, stopping for hot chocolate on the way home and reading the funny papers with Max at the coffee shop, roasted sweet potatoes and a relish of carmelized onions alongside my roast chicken, watching hockey with my boy snuggled on my lap.

Savoring the day for all the magic that it brought.  How about you?  What gifts have you uncovered?
