It has been hard making plans for the winter with so many things up in the air, but today I put a stake in the ground. I booked our usual beach house on Longboat Key for Christmas week and made plane reservations for Jesse to join us there. Erin's plane reservations will come in a day or two and then I'll be happily looking forward to a great holiday on the Gulf. That's as far as I'm going to look right now, as far as I have to.
Tonight we're having dinner with some old friends who live in Asheville, NC and are passing through the area. It will be nice to see Deb and Jim even if its just for a few hours. Saturday morning we'll have another house showing so we need to take the dogs and make ourselves scarce. Since fall seems to be here to stay I think we'll head to the apple orchards just north of us to see what varieties are ready. I have a real hankering for fresh apple crisp after Carol made a beautiful one for us on Sunday. She was kind enough to send me her recipe, so I need some fruit!.
Another fiery sunset last night.
