It will not come as a surprise that I love to be home. This is the place that I feel most centered. After our trip last weekend to Pittsburgh, we are settling down into our slow easy days. After dinner, I quickly do the dishes so we can take a walk with Frodo and enjoy the mild weather. The scenery is changing quickly and soon the clocks will be set back an hour and it'll be too dark for an after dinner walk.
This week has seen a shift in our meals, summer meals are switching to fall comfort meals. I made eggplant parmesan for the first time. My husband hasn't stopped singing eggplant praises. I said that if you dredge any vegetable in bread crumbs and fry it up it would taste good. He said nope. Carrots would still taste like carrots (he doesn't like cooked carrots only raw or roasted). I guess he had a point. The other under-loved vegetable, turnips, has been chopped and carefully roasted with potatoes, delicious.
It seems that the rabbits are hibernating and have stopped torturing Frodo. Now Frodo goes outside to sunbathe and relaxes in the grass. Yesterday I went out to join him, sometimes animals know a good thing and we humans must follow. For ten minutes I stopped doing chores and sat and listened to the world.
Have a lovely weekend and I hope you get to be outside to listen to the world!!
