I cannot believe how long the warmth is staying in Portland! Is this normal?! Why wasn’t I here sooner!? I’ve always felt like fall weather in Chicago was so fleeting. You might get a week of slightly cool weather, the leaves would change, and then suddenly a ghastly wind would turn up and RIP ALL THE LEAVES OFF THE TREES. Then it would snow.
This weekend should be full of fun things. Yesterday, Ktams and I traveled to Smith Berry Barn and purchased a bushel of Jonathan apples (that’s around 40 lb for you non-apple eaters). It’s going to be applesauce galore in this house today, let me tell you! And once we get tired of turning the food mill we might make a crisp or two. Tomorrow we will be meeting up with another Illinois Alumni transplant (I-L-L!) and attending Portland’s Fresh Hops Fest!
Sunday I just plan on kicking back and eating a ton of applesauce. Oh…and have I mentioned that WE ARE MOVING in two weeks? So knowing my luck–packing will commence. Joy.
Have a great weekend and if you’re in the Portland area get to the Hops Fest! Find me! We’ll clink glasses and drink to the wonderment that is craft beers!
