This weekend was not the weekend we made salsa, but I did pick quite a few to include in our Fall Beef Stew tonight. Combined with veggies from Saturday's market, it was perfect. So yummy on a cool fall night. It looks like Tuesday is going to be another warm day, 90°, but otherwise the fall weather looks like it's here to stay. Bring it on!

Geocaching last weekend at Woodland Trials! We found Silver Australian dollars!

Enjoying the golf carts. This was a pretty spot to take a picture on the 10+ miles of trails to explore.

We were birders for the day! Finches, Nuthatches, and other birds loved  the giant feeders!
