On Saturday evening after dinner, we went for a family "night walk" down our street. Our street ends at an unfinished residential construction site and the road continues but unpaved into the hilly canyon area that we live in. We had headlamps and the Noodle's solar-powered, self-powered radio flashlight.

By the time we returned home, we had an excellent collection of chestnuts.

Today I am shipping an order from my shop, making soup for lunch and later knitting with a friend and then dinner out with other friends. There is serious Lego ship building going on beside me at the moment and anxious waiting for a playdate with the neighbor. I'm in charge of the yams/sweet potatoes for Thursday so I guess I'll be recipe hunting today too. Does anyone have a favorite recipe to share? Leave me a comment! :)
