Autumn is definitely here. The breeze switched around to the north and took on a distinctly chilly nip. My DH manfully climbed a ladder today and patched a few holes in our guttering preparatory to the inevitable fall rains. I spent the day running the washer and dryer nonstop; while waiting between loads I put together more jewelry and listened to a book on tape. I also conducted a PMC firing for a heart-shaped pendant and some bead cones I made to match a pendant I finished earlier.
I made two batches of soup (I love soup in cold weather), one a tex-mex spicy pork and hominy soup, and the other called Cowboy Stew, which involved bacon, stew meat, vegetables, and rather a lot of red cooking wine. It all tastes good and it's mostly nutritious. We can have the leftovers for lunch and supper all week if we want.
