Today marks the beginning of the end of summer. By the end of the month, students will be back in school and the feeling of the city will vastly change. We’ve had a downpour for days to cool off the main heat of July, and it’s time to look at harvesting and canning.
Last weekend my parents came out to visit, I had a house-warming bbq celebration, and I discovered that the tree in my yard, all scraggly and overgrown, is actually a plum-tree. I love plums! I also went to the Denver Aquarium for a friend’s birthday, which is where I found the lovely mermaid bench I’m reclining on in the picture above.
I have had plenty of luck finding new recipes, trying new restaurants, and enjoying Boulder life. I think I’ve been on Pearl St. more in the last two months than I had in seven years of living in Colorado. That’s right, last week marked me being here for 7 years! It’s amazing how much can happen. It really doesn’t feel any different from when I first arrived, other than I know my way around on all the buses now. 🙂
I’ve started dancing again, and climbing. I’m a happy Patty. My plan for tonight? Either a dinner out or trying a new brownie recipe, and possibly a new refrigerator dill pickle recipe. Either way, it will be a good evening!
