The seasons roll along, like a river sometimes squeezed into a fast-rushing stream, days clicking by at top speed; other times widening so far the momentum seems to cease. Long days. Slow days. With the hot summer days and stormy afternoons, the Korean pears had ripened beautifully without anyone hardly noticing.

Hitty Hedydd is grateful that, despite her late arrival into the family, she is always included in the celebrations that were established before her adoption.

The family arrived too late in the day at the market to purchase traditional rice cakes (Songpyeon, a type of Tteok, ) freshly prepared. So, along with other delicacies, into the basket went some pretty frozen rice cakes. A delicious dinner was eaten, the Harvest Moon, sadly, only made a brief appearance, and there were plenty of leftovers.  Did I mention the Hedydd likes to play games?
