It is a beautiful fall day.
We had a lovely walk in the park this morning and it was quite empty except for our geese friends. The Canada geese babies have all grown up and have flown away. Once in a while, we see them circle around the pond. There are other lakes around here and I imagine they hang out there too.
I made another pie in a tin dish and froze it on the recommendation of blogger Hilary. I just took it out of the oven and it smells and looks amazing so I will try and do at least a couple of pies this way for fall.
I went to Target and got another case of pint jars for the applesauce which I will start tomorrow. I figure I can get most of the one box of apples done. The second box is staring at me already but will have to wait.
We leave for Tahoe on Friday and will be gone a week. It’s a different time to be up there but certainly, most crowds are gone. Evenings will be chilly but we can sit by the fire or inside the tent trailer. Usually, we play scrabble or I read. We are taking the kayaks so we will go out at least 2 times to make it worth bringing them. We might drive down to Sand Harbor( quite a ways back on the lake) and go out from there. Sand Harbor State Beach is where many of the famous shots/pictures of Tahoe are with the big boulders and beautiful blue water.
I’m planning a few Lodge meals and other than that just simple foods. Plus the grocery store is like half a mile away.
Since the tent trailer does not have a shower we’ll go to the gym up there, work out and then shower. My main criteria for a new trailer is a shower/toilet.
I made organic long grain rice for dinner and we’re having burritos with rice, beans, cheese, sour cream, lettuce.
