Autumn is for Apple Bread

I was married in the Spring. It was my favorite season. I think it still is. The promise of future harvests, the colors of spring flowers, birds singing ... As I get older, I do appreciate and love Autumn more; blue skies and crunchy piles of leaves, the cool days along with abundant harvests. I have a bushel of apples and a cold drafty old house. Is there a better way to warm up a kitchen than popping some apple bread into the oven?
