It's Here!

Yes it's here, Fall is here!!! We briefly touched 59 degrees last night and it was in the low 60's when we went to walk this morning.  I'm wearing jeans!  I haven't worn jeans in nearly 6 months.
And even better, I'm cooking cool weather food.  We decided that we needed to make one of the meals we'd had in Spain----Chorizo and Beans--- and it's bubbling away on the stove.  I'll fix a Tortilla to go with it and pretend we're still in Spain.
As soon as the beans are done I have sewing to do, but if I go upstairs to sew I'll completely forget I have something cooking on the stove, so I have to stay near it.  If I can smell it, and my nose only works at short range any more, then I'll remember it.


  1. So nice isn't it? I'm in NC and we're having our first few cool days, too.

  2. Sound delicious!
    Just like The Fall.

  3. Isn't this weather HEAVENLY?
    I made soup and cornbread muffins for dinner, so good!!
    Your dinner sounds wonderful too. I don't know I might just have to go to Spain with you next time you go to make sure you're doing it right! :-)

  4. I hate cold weather, I'm a right grumpy old bag when it's not sunny, not the best for a Scot really is it?

  5. Kay , yes I'm enjoying the weather and the more interesting food, Spain was wonderful, one of the best trips we've had in a while.

    auniegwen, so good to see you back, what we call cold in Georgia 50's and 60's, would probably get laughed at in England.


Saturday in the Swamp

Beautiful cold day here, down to 36º last night and only expected to reach 60º today, but the sky is blue and it looks wintery. Lots to get...
