It's Fall!

One of my dear friends (hi Meredith!) reminded me a couple days ago that I "have not posted in... forever!"  So here's a little update:

I'm still riding my bike to work. I recently outfitted it with a nifty bell and water bottle holder. Now I just have to procure the requisite front basket and rear fender, and I'm good to go for a few more months.  Every day I get to ride next to the river for about 2 miles, and the rest is city.  I love it.  Even if I'm not doing something outside after work, I still get in my twice-daily bike rides.

I can't wait for Whole Foods to open in downtown Boise!  It's so close, but today the parking lot was still flecked with bright orange cones.  It's on my way home, so now I have to be doubly-sure to pack reusable bags in my backpack.  So that I don't end up balancing thin plastic grocery bags on both handlebars like I did the other night.  I need to go grocery shopping more often, apparently.

I bought a 20 pound box of huge, ripe peaches at the farmer's market on Saturday for $20.  Quite a steal, considering how fantastically perfect they are!  They are so juicy and full of flavor they squirt with every bite. Now to decide their purpose... cobbler? cake? pie?  I think they will hang out in the freezer for a while until I decide.

It's been crazy-busy at work. I've been working until at least 6 every night, sometimes 7, for about 2 months. Tonight was the first time I actually left at 5.

Still haven't heard anything about Kyle's job interview... we were hoping to get a yay/nay a week ago, but we'll just have to keep waiting.  We'll find out sooner or later!

I'm so happy to see that it's fall.  The cooler weather is such a relief and i just love to see the trees change color.  Here's to the holidays!
