    This is prime time for dutch oven cookin! Cool crisp days warmed by hot cast iron.
    Starting to plan for a full blown traditional American Dutch Oven cookout. All will be prepared home made out back. Turkeys, Hams, sourdough bread, pecan bourbon pies, apple pies and the traditional pumpkin pie. Oh, and my personal favorite, home made baked beans in my favorite cast iron kettle!

    Work around the house? is there such a thing?

    Just moved (again), have free reign to do what I want. Have to paint at least two rooms, rip up most of the carpet and replace it with tile or hardwood, insulate a bathroom, build a chicken coop, put up bookshelves, fix broken counterweights on windows, build a porch, finish unclogging a stubborn drain...

    I'm going to be busy.

    Unhappy Re: What's on your must-do list in the fall?

    My old house needs quite a bit of work. For fall, I need new gutters. Also I need to finish off my stucco. If I could remove my old patio and get it replaced by fall, that would be great. I will also need to cut back a few plants.
