Rachel and I went to Greenbluff yesterday and picked peaches at Hidden Acres. I'm trying my first attempt at canning peaches, well anything really. To me ripe peaches are summer at its best, that and barbecued baby back ribs and passion ice tea.
Malcolm is getting pretty big and is quite the little hunter, I'd be interested to see what he would catch if we let him outside. Right now he still mostly an indoor kitty. Our neighbor has apparently seen coyotes in the park, so we're a little reluctant to let him outside just yet. He doesn't seem to have a healthy fear of animals bigger than him. He's already trying to chase all the other cats out of the yard (they're easily twice his size).
The weeds mentioned in the last long ago post are now completely gone. Our yard has been leveled to dirt, we're working on a stone retaining wall in the front yard. So far we've been reusing all the rocks/materials that were already here. Joe has just about finished repairing the sprinkler system and laying sod is next... would like to have this project finished before the snow flies.
