I remember my mother cooking with a pressure cooker. They always
frightened her a bit because they could explode, but they can be a great
kitchen tool and are much safer today.
I also have to continue with the dusting. I did a nice job of it when Sharon came to visit for Labor Day, but I have fingerling spiders (little active babies) and they love to string webs. I'm seeing some come up where I had dusted, so it's time to evict them again.
My spider webs aren't as pretty as this one...so they can be eliminated :-)
It's Fall in Minnesota now, and our temperatures have mellowed and cooled down. We have two weekends of Renaissance Festival left - Octoberfest (celebrating beer and beards) and Irish Weekend. My cape is ready so even though it may be cooler, I have slightly heavier clothing and my cape to wear, so I'll be fine even if it is at least 20 degrees cooler. But best predictions say that we'll have another sunny day on Sunday and I'm all in favor of that. I wonder if the leaves will have started to be colorful on our drive. With our summer drought I'm hearing predictions that the fall colors will be much more subdued because the trees have been stressed so much. That would be a shame!
