The Days Grow Short as We Reach September Giveaway

One of my father's favorite songs was "September Song." Once the calendar flips to September the lyrics jump into my mind and stay there firmly until the last moments of the month. While we are still entrenched in summer in New York City -- the hum of the air conditioner is my companion right now -- I know by the end of the month there will be days where the air has a crispness and I will be dreaming of New England leaves and apples and pumpkins.

Once it gets a little cooler I will more actively resume cooking and baking. Even with the air conditioner my little kitchen is too hot for any baking right now and even standing over the stove can be hotter than I would like. But soon...

Thanks to the Litfuse Group  I will be writing about "Gather Around the Amish Table" later this month and in anticipation I am doing a quick giveaway. I've been a little remiss in sharing my BlogHer goodies and to celebrate the return of kitchen activities I'm doing a giveaway for an apron I got a BlogHer. It has a logo -- Thanks, Embassy Suites -- but I think it would be a great cover-up for the messier kitchen activities and it looks like it will wash very nicely.

It's an easy entry giveaway. Just be a friend of Buttercup's on BlogLovin, Google Friend or Google+ and leave a comment telling us about your favorite autumn recipe. I'll let you know the winner on Tuesday, September 8. I'll start with my most-often made autumn recipe. I'm not sure if it's my favorite recipe, but I enjoy making apple sauce with the new apples. 

I'm moving ahead with Get Organized September. I took another bag of clothes -- the last for now -- to the Salvation Army and I am delighted with the room in my front closet. I am also looking at three empty shelves I just picked up at the local lumber store. They needed to be cut to fit an odd-sized bookcase and happily, they fit perfectly. I've got several piles of books to fill them, and I hope to put together a bag of books to give away in the sorting process. It's tough for me to give away books, but if I don't I may need to move, and that's not about to happen.  

As ever, thanks for visiting and have a sweet Wednesday!
