Summer is officially here and the temperatures prove it. Almost 100 degrees. For those in the Southwest, that’s probably not too hot. I remember living in Tucson and we actually were out a lot. Maybe cause we were young and in love and it didn’t matter or perhaps it was just foolish youth. Anyway, now I don’t do well in the heat and try and do all my chores early and I never go to town in the afternoon.
We went to the gym and then stopped t the market for Pico de Gallo for black beans tonight. Last night I made a cold Borscht Soup with beets from the farmers market. It was really delicious.
At the farmers market we got beets, radishes, apricots, nectarines, cucumbers, broccoli, and a few other things I can’t remember but it was good. The market was busy even at 8:10 am and it had just opened at 8am. This farmers market doesn’t ring a bell to open at 8 like the Santa Cruz one. That one you can’t buy anything till the bell is rung.
We’ve been watering a lot and I’m sure our water bill will reflect that. Oh, well, in the winter it’s PGE, in the summer it’s the Water company.
We’re in the Living room zone this week and I just finished that up. I’ve decided to empty one of the Heywoods and put some of my Fiesta ware in the bottom area. I’ll see if that works or not.
This week I’m going to South Lake Tahoe with B for work. It’s only an overnight but should be fun. I was thinking of going out for dinner at this place at Richardsons Resort, but I’ll need to check their online menu for prices.
Dinner is Black beans with sour cream and salsa and avocado.
