You can really tell that fall is just around the corner. The local produce stands have the seasons apples, squashes, corn is coming in strong, and the tell tale the leaves are starting to change. Evenings are cooler, mornings are crisper. I can’t help but love this time of year. I anticipate the summer months all year long, but long for the fall to arrive.
Today both Chris and I had the day off and we spent it out and about. We hit the local produce stand Kruse Farms and are breaking the South Beach Diet tonight with corn on the cob. Probably the worst thing we could have, but we both agreed we have to have it at LEAST once before the season ends. After that we headed to Boyer Meats and picked up some different cuts of meat. I have a hard time eating anything the local stores put out. And then headed back on the backroad through Dixonville, to Roberts Road and then home.
I decided that tonight we would try once again to get Baxter, our Shitzu, to try and walk again on a leash. I hooked him all up, got him pshyched, Chris chopped up treats and put them in his pocket and we were all set. Last time we tried to walk him he laid in the road, flopped around like a fish out of water on the leash and we carried him back home. So off we go! He did great! His little legs lasted him about 1/2 a mile and he was pooped. He came home and drank up some cold water and is crashed out beside Chris.
Out of the Brine the Chicken went and on the Rotissiere it goes. The house smells wonderful and we are all feeling quite good about the day.
