Fall Spiced Apricot Cider

The weather here has been playing hide-n-seek. One day it is cool the next day back to warm weather. We have so longed for a change from the drastic heat that prevails here in the valley but now that my toes are chilled I wish for warmer weather. All is well though. I have my toasty woolen socks and my favorite fall cider to keep me comfortable. I remember growing up my mom would steal my dad’s warm socks to keep her feet warm. Now she has slippers but the charade was a fun jest to usher in the winter.
