We’ve been busy—yesterday we made a run to Billings for a routine doctor’s appointment and a Costco shopping trip. Today I finally got all the accumulated dust bunnies (how does a house get dusty when all the doors and windows are shut and no one is coming or going for a month??) vacuumed and some general cleaning done.
It’s been a long time since I shared any photos of where we live:
It’s a bumper crop year for chokecherries—I don’t think I’ve ever seen the trees so heavy with fruit. The cowboy has been hinting about picking some for jelly/syrup and I’ve not listened. Today he wore me down and I sent him to pick cherries. The cowboy doesn’t help much in the kitchen but he did today—we juiced the berries getting 25 cups of beautiful, deep red juice. And then there was the mess—white sinks and red juice make for a very big mess!
This afternoon late after cleaning up all the chokecherry mess, we took a little RZR ride up Elk Creek near us.
I could swear fall is in the air—our mornings are cool, in the high 40’s and we’ve stayed under 80 degrees for several days now. There’s just something in the air—fall is coming.
