I thought I would make an apple pie for dessert because I had some fantastic apples last week but when we got to the farmer’s market there were still so many peaches and berries I changed my mind. I made a peach-blueberry-strawberry pie. I very highly recommend this combination. I used lemon zest and nutmeg with the filling.
Mom came up last Thursday to see Ursula Le Guin interview Margaret Atwood for our first lecture of this year’s season. It was really good and supposedly will be broadcast on Oregon Public Radio but it’s not up there yet. They talked about writing and spec/sci fi writing and went off-topic and cracked each other up. Highly recommended for fans of these writers.
I wanted Mom to meet the nextdoor cat Toes since she is a friend of cats. We went outside to putter around and he ran right over and the minute she sat down he jumped into her lap.
We’ve spent the last couple of days running around doing all kinds of stuff but mostly book and food/kitchen oriented things. When we got home on Friday Bob asked what we’d been doing and I said it would be easier to tell him what we hadn’t been doing.
We took her to a couple more fun stores this morning before feeding her lunch and sending her on her way.
I took a better photo of the pumpkin patch and have helpfully made arrows so you can see all the loot. There’s one more big one in back that you can’t see in the photo.
I’ve got a long day tomorrow and Tuesday I’m off to Atlanta to visit Kira and maybe fix her blog so she can post what’s been happening since February.
Haha. I actually have a secret blog I have to show you when you get here.
In more important news, are we going to make pie-cupcakes? I was thinking of getting all the ingredients…
Who needs pie? I’ll happily just eat all the fruit right from the bowl.
Have a fun trip!
I’m glad you’re doing well! Ha, Ursula and Margaret together. That must have been a hoot.
