We live in the country but drive to the big city for my peppers:) Our peppers..this is a fifty fifty job I love .In Provence I coveted the wicker trolleys so much..LOL in 2008 I should have just bought one and paid to have it checked in the plane..years following...the opportunity didn't arrive:(
Our fall has been nothing short of stellar with more to come.
I am letting my cosmos,marigolds ,nasturtiums and zinnias go to seed from this moment on..
My 4 o'clocks also.
Or else..I won't have all these flowers I loved so much next year...a plethora of them.
We had only one coolish day a long while back and I made Ina's Italian Wedding soup.
I love it and my husband likes that there is meat in it.
You know..I never knew this but if you cut a long stem of nasturtiums and put them in water in your home ..They continue to bloom!
They took up that right hand corner of my kitchen sink windows.
All our windows are sparkling..J did the outside I do the insides..
Spring and Fall.
Feels so clean.
We went to Little Italy and bought a very large bushel of peppers..my chariot:) Comes in very handy:)
All roasted on the BBQ..all frozen..and ready for a year.
Garlic..peppers..herbs..so fun to store and have on hand.
In Little Italy I bought some tuna from Portugal packed with chickpeas too..
I made a salad with my pickled onions and watermelon radishes for the market.Sublime.I eat with my eyes first.
The other salad we both love is apple fennel and mint...
A trip to our Montreal market brings out the best in salads for me.
Bees are so nice..I can take photos right next to them..and they continue their work..
Wasps are awful..bees are beautiful.
That dessert above..is such a keeper.An Apple Crumble Tart.
So it is in my keeper binder:)
This weekend was filled with football..
Max..Oli and Lucas..
The night games..my camera is not really great.. Oli's game wasn't a home game..and at the same time as Lucas'. ..Home but in the city..
He gives it his all...
The thing about these games..all 3 of them..the camaraderie is simply amazing..even graduates come back to see the younger ones play.They hug and cheer..and are so happy to see each other again.
All the boys stay on the field after the game and get hugs and hug back from all of us.
The night games.. we get home late.
I lie in bed and relive everything.. their game..their friends..my daughter's friends.. and then I don't sleep a wink.
Have a lovely October.
It's like high summer here so hot.
Not looking forward to putting my gardens to bed..I might be getting lazier.
I hope not.
