Enough of the birds and beach and butterflies. I actually have an Autumn-like photo from our town that I took the other day. Good thing, because the winds were coming up late yesterday and we all know that means the leaves will be gone before you know it.
On the theme of Orange....weren't we talking about that? We bought some persimmons at the farmers market last weekend. Have you ever tried persimmons? They have a very nice, not too sweet, flavor. They aren't very big so it's not like sitting down (or standing) to eat an apple. I think they would be very good in my favorite yogurt, but I've just been slicing them and eating them while standing at the kitchen window and watching my hummingbirds. If we ever get rain, I'd like to plant a persimmon tree.
On the theme of fruit....yes we were talking about that. My massage therapist brought in some pomegranates the other day and showed me a much easier way to get out the seeds. So instead of feeding all the poms to my chickens, who have decided this year that they like them, I am going to enjoy a few for myself. We already gave quite a few of them away and I need to get more off the tree before they rot and fall on the ground. We need another pomegranate tree too.
Well, I was going to think of something else to say, but my starving donkeys are calling me for breakfast. Yes, at 6am. This time change hasn't settled in around our place. I'm still having a hard time staying awake for my 9-10pm favorites on TV. I missed Grey's Anatomy again last night!
Off I go. Have a very nice Friday!

I travelled a fair amount when I was in my 30s and 40s. A lot of it was on company business and we didn't have a strict budget, so I c...
It rained and rained all day Sunday. But then Monday came 'round and we had a beautiful welcome break. I decided to drive over to th...
Baby, it's been cold outside. I know, not Iowa cold or Upstate New York cold, but cold still the same. Merry Winter!
