Here is our 30 days in a nutshell
We promptly discovered the farmer's market.
Our hauls have been substantial.
We also participated in Banned Books Week at the market.
Though she is not pictured, Nessa was quite a draw to our table.
We've had friends and family show up.
All of our kids came over for the weekend including a surprise visit from Dr. Boy. We didn't think we would see him until November or so given his exam schedule but there he was knocking on the door. I may have shed a tear or two.
I made beignets. They were scarfed down in a matter of moments. Dr Boy, JR and I were the only ones that had ever eaten beignets before so these were new to the Eldest Son and his Lovely Wife. Those of us with beignet experience liked this version because they weren't as sweet. The other two just loved fried dough...because who doesn't? I made these from refrigerator biscuits. Next time I plan to try deep frying refrigerator cinnamon rolls. I'm obviously a sick woman and should be stopped.
Last weekend my mom and stepdad came over to visit. We had a great time going out to dinner, visiting a distillery (hated the booze though) and generally spending time with each other. Sorry no pictures. Not sure what I was thinking.
We've visited a winery (or two)
Where we drank too much,
Joined the wine club thus committing ourselves to buying at least 3 bottles of wine a year. Like that's a problem!
We did get T-shirts out of the deal. So there is that.
T-shirts will we will no longer be wearing because the weather has gotten decidedly colder.
Evidenced by my photographic efforts.
The first week we got here
The second or third week after we got here.
JR had to dig around to find the ice scrapper.
He has decided that parking in the garage is best option from now on.
He will have to clear space. Good thing the car is small.
So there you have it. A random edition of our first 30 days in what is looking like its becoming the frozen north. Go check out other Random Tuesday Thoughts folks at Stacy's place.
