It was, as I have said, a fine autumnal day; the sky was clear and serene, and nature wore that rich and golden livery which we always associate with the idea of abundance. The forests had put on their sober brown and yellow, while some trees of the tenderer kind had been nipped by the frosts into brilliant dyes of orange, purple, and scarlet.... As Ichabod jogged slowly on his way, his eye... ranged with delight over the treasures of jolly autumn. ~Washington Irving, "The Legend of Sleepy Hollow"

Sisterhood and Vegetable Soup

My sister has arrived for a couple of days. It's so good to have her here. She comes from the busy bay-area; filled with thousands of people and cars and everyone going 100 miles per hour; so when she gets here it's like a retreat...., a bed and breakfast for family only. She takes a nap, cuddles with the dogs and takes a walk outside. I love watching her unwind . Later we will have something to eat and probably do something wild and crazy, like watch a movie and go to bed early. Doesn't that sound exciting?
We will have chicken-vegetable soup for dinner and , of course, bread pudding for dessert.

It's a sisterhood weekend. The prospector is gone for a couple of days, and we can do anything we want to: stay up all night, go bar hopping (right!), drive up to Lake Tahoe, or down to Vegas. The sky's the limit. As long as we are home at 4:00 p.m. to feed the dogs and take care of the chickens and the goats. I guess we won't be gettin' in too much trouble. So...., soups on. Care to join us?

I like the Bay area but I always like coming home better :-) If you head to Tahoe you'll drive right by me... I think. Have a great time with your sis.

Have a good time with your sister. From all the pictures you have posted of your home and surrounding area I know she will have a very restful time away from the big city.

My sister and I try to get together at least once a year (she's in North Carolina). It is SO MUCH FUN! We always laugh and wonder why we never had this much fun when we were sharing a room way back when. : )
