I'm amused by the fact that in late October we found ourselves poolside, grilling peppers, digging sweet potatoes and playing with the hose. But that is exactly what we did this past weekend.
Boo had her first swim meet and impressed me beyond measure. I've been dropping her off at practice the last several months and then purposely not sticking around and watching her. Swim team is all hers. . . and she's rocking it. She glides through the water like an arrow seeking a target. The ribbons now hanging in her room prove it. Maybe I should start calling her Katfish Everdeen.
The threat of a freeze taunts us every night so we decided to pick all the remaining peppers and roast them. We then skinned, de-seeded, chopped and froze them for use all winter long.
Razor also dug up the first bit of sweet potatoes. Having some for dinner tonight.
And it was juuuuuuust warm enough for this one to play in the water.
Good stuff indeed.
