I love fall. The temps here in OK have gone from upper 90’s to upper 70’s. Mornings are downright cool. I feel like I might make it. My dogs have been frisky. Zoe, the Great Dane, is almost scary with her hopping and running around like a (huge) puppy. Ranger, the Rat Terrier, was wild at the park yesterday – running as fast as he could, playing fetch with a stick, taking a swim in the pond, etc - all pretty amazing for a 25 lb. Rat Terrier. The fall air just makes us all feel better. It certainly gave me new energy. Last night, I made Kris’ sausage and tortelline soup with a few differences due to what I had in my pantry. Toby loved it! Then from the pears that I picked at my friend, JoAnn’s place, I made a pear pie. Toby helped me peel the pears, which is the part I dislike. The pie was delicious. I love fall.
Another interesting tidbit: I bought a new rug for the bathroom. It is a bit larger than the old rug, so I had to set the bathroom scales up on the rug. It now weighs me about seven pounds lighter. Dang! If I had known how easy it was to lose weight, I would have bought a new rug years ago.
