just rambling


- A friend stopped by the other night & you'da tho't the farmers market pulled into our driveway. He gave us our pick of homegrown pumpkins, tomatoes, peppers, squash ... & to top it off he delivered a beautiful loaf of oatmeal bread that he made himself - still warm & fresh from the oven --as well as fish that he caught himself! Such a blessing. We've invited him back! .... for a fish-fry tomorrow night :)

- I made a tomato tart last night....it was tasty -- but I need to perfect it a bit.

- The fall colors are so beautiful here right now. Sunday evening we enjoyed being in the midst of it. The moon was full blown & pink(!) as it hung in the blue sky w/ the fiery trees below. A white fog blanket covered the ground in places as if it were tucking the fields in for the chilly night ahead. I tried to get a good pic of the moon but it played hide & seek in the hills & trees as we drove - which certainly made the drive that much more fun - but didn't allow me to capture the pic that I'll treasure in my memory.

- last but not least --- I went into the archives to dig up the pic above ...a favorite of mine - it's of our girls back 2004 at my brother's house in Colorado :)
