This weekend I bought a big bag of apples and a jug of apple cider at the farmers’ market. I guess it’s really fall! I feel ready for it. Waking up to crisp, cool mornings just feels right at the moment. And I love fresh apple cider so much. It is one of my favorite things about fall.

I’ve been doing a lot of hawk watching the last month. I actually spent two weekends in a row up in Duluth – the second and third weekends of September. This last weekend I stayed in the metro – and kept super busy. A few weeks back I took a hedge trimmer to my barberry bushes and clipped them way back, which opened up a lot of room in my garden. So, Friday night I went to Gertens and bought some new perennials. Saturday I went to the Ren Fest with Allen and his family, then out to the Toby Keith bar with Allen for one of his friends’ birthday parties (the best thing I can say about the bar is that it was interesting people watching – maybe that deserves its own post). Sunday I went to the farmers’ market, then to my parents’ house to pick up some plants my mom was pulling out, then I spent 4 hours planting all my new plants, and then I topped it all off with a clothing exchange. Is it any wonder I haven’t updated lj in forever?

Tonight is the start of Rosh Hashanah – so shanah tovah to all the other Jews on here! I’m looking forward to dipping my farmers’ market apples in the honey I got there back in the early summer. And drinking apple cider.

Hope you have a happy Rosh Hashanah - or whatever the proper adjective is!

I've been looking at recipes that involve cooking cheap cuts of meat in apple cider... I might have to make one happen.
