Mom’s birthday & fruit picking

As you know from the last two posts, yesterday was my mom’s birthday. My parents, David, Carol, Jeff, and I went to my grandfather’s for dinner. My dad made a DELICIOUS meal (I’m hoping to post the recipe here soon). It was a really nice evening.

It's a little blurry, but such a cute picture of my mom and David.

Wait, we all look good??

My mom is so passionate about the story she is telling!

The cakes I made!

Today was a cool day, probably the coolest one this fall (mid 60s). David and I went fruit picking at Brookdale Farm. It was crisp and felt amazing to be outside. The sky was so blue. I really love fall–it is beautiful and there’s a certain excitement in the air. As my sister recently wrote in an email to me, “It’s funny, I think that I have residual back-to-school feelings. The air has already started to turn cool, and I feel the angst and excitement of transition! Will I always feel this way come September?”

We picked raspberries, blueberries, and apples (Cortland, Fiji, Gala, and Honey Crisp). David and I can’t remember). I’m hoping to make apple crisp tomorrow if I can get through some of this grading… Whenver I go to rural NH I wonder why it is that I want to move to a large city. And I think David may love the trees and winding roads even more than me.

    The cakes you made were wonderful!!! I ate some of the leftovers today. Yum. I know exactly what Sarah means about residual back-to-school feelings. I STILL have a feeling of excitement in the fall.

    I’ll bring you the recipe for Vegetarian Moussaka tomorrow. I’m so glad you and David could be with us last night. Thank you for everything.
