Fall Already?!

This week has been surprisingly cool and Fall is in the air. The only problem?: It's AUGUST! This year Summer didn't come and go. It skipped coming and simply went! No hot days by the pool in Ohio this year. Bizarre. That being said, I do love fall. Steve was joking about making a fire last night. (I think he should have.) I experimented in the kitchen and created poached pears in a spiced hazelnut syrup. Yum! Now even our house smells like Fall.

Well done on the poached pears and the spiced hazelnut experience! Sheesh, that's impressive. I'm glad you guys got to go to Rome. I thought all the purple was way funny (and ugly) too.

Yeah, Rome was a strange place (this is a fun way to comment, by the way). Funny thing about the purple is that it was dappertutto, even in northern Italy. Well, we'd visit if we had money, but we don't . . . my skype name is jamie.zvirzdin if you have skype . . . and you can always give me your phone number and I can call you.
