It's beginning to look a lot like...
Back at home, my mouth watered as the cider bubbled and steamed on the stove top, the scent of mulling spices wafting through the air making the house smell heavenly. I anxiously poured the spicy elixir into my mug and sipped--Ah, a draught of warm autumn, golden chrysanthemums blossoming in my chest; it was like drinking a blessed vessel of "Home for the Holidays." :)
May this day be the apple of your eye!
"I came that you may have and enjoy life
and have it in abundance, until it overflows."
