I took this picture on Saturday at the Farmers' Market. The fire is being prepared by the local pizza maker who makes pizzas on the spot for the locals. It was really cold on Saturday morning and I was drawn to this nice warm fire. Our market will continue to be open until the middle of December, but almost everybody is gone now, with just a few vendors around, but there are still lots and lots of veggies.
Yum! I think it's time to start thinking about making soups. Notice that the vendor is not standing around in shirtsleeves. However, that soup will have to wait until I get home from Texas. I leave on Friday for a nice visit with my siblings, to celebrate Thanksgiving together and some fun big birthdays: my seventieth and my sister Fia's fiftieth. How is it possible? Where did the time go? Now I'm really sounding like an old fart!
The Senior Trailblazers must be doing something right: look at the forecast for the upcoming few days. The only day without rain forecast is on Thursday. And as you can see, it's raining now but not all that cold. I think I'll go do some shopping, since time is running out before I start the long journey to Texas!
