an apple a day

A lovely weekend! Clear, warm days interrupted by a thunderstorm or two (with enough drama to be interesting, but not so much to cause serious damage). The gentleman and I decided a field trip was in order, so we hopped in the car on friday and drove down to the northern neck of Virginia to spend the day with a bit of history (more on that to come). There was a touch of fall in the air, which always puts me in a good mood. The apple trees were laden with fruit and the corn stalks so tall they obliterated the horizon. A few yellow leaves were stirring in the wind. Nothing like some fresh air to clear a foggy mind.

But, then there were papers to organize, an apartment to clean, and laundry to do. . . so back to reality. Oh, and the gentleman and I are working on an exciting project I hope to show you soon.


And happy monday.

This weekend we drove to the mountains in North Carolina where it was blessedly cool - cold even, at night. Bliss!

This morning when I went outside, there was a feeling of Autumn. I cannot wait for Fall and a crisp day and the urge to make a pot of soup....that is when my kitchen is finally complete.

There is no more beautiful sight than trees in fruit, and apple trees always possess incredible charm. As for the fruit itself, a good rule of thumb is the "uglier" the fruit, the better the taste.

Ah... the Northern Neck: "the land of pleasant living!" Looking forward to details - perhaps re: the Lees?

Blue ~ I love when the evenings are cool. So glad to hear you are out and about!

pve ~ there is nothing more satisfying than making a pot of soup. Last night we had tha most amazing autumn sunset. . . I think fall is on its way.

Parnassus ~ how true! Those apples were perfectly ugly and quite delicious.

JBR ~ the Lees? Who?!?! Perhaps. . .
