It's raining. Quarter of an inch so far! The leaves have been falling. The horses are fuzzy. The mornings sometimes have that crispy minty-eucalyptus smell that happens after it rains (love that!). I've been wearing flannel! I have a very serious apple pie craving, so I think I'll bake one next weekend. In the mean time I made a pumpkin cheesecake, and it's fan-damn-tastic. (Okay, really, why am I still single? Isn't the ability to bake cheesecake on anybody's list of requirements?)
I love fall.
It's Saturday night, but really it's now Sunday morning.
Mom and Jan and I went to the CASH Tribute concert at the Sutter Creek Theatre tonight. I enjoyed the heck out of it, really enjoyed Jim Garner's singing and the band was great, and it was a kick to see Johnny Cash music performed live. I could have died of happiness when they played Ghost Riders in the Sky, love love love that song! There was much grinning and toe-tapping in my world tonight. :-)
And I have to give a big shout out to the Sutter Creek Theatre itself. That place is pretty darn cool, and the owners are super nice people. Going to a concert in a small theater where tickets cost about $20, and you can actually see the performers (the theater holds just over 200) is soooo much better than some overpriced concert where you pay an arm and a leg and get nose bleed seats. You know what, those big time people often don't sound all that great live anyway. I am an increasingly avid fan of these small concerts featuring lesser known performers who can do a real knockout live performance for a small audience, it's SUCH an enjoyable experience. I go to a few concerts per year there now, and there were a few more I would have loved to see but was out of town. Besides, support the arts! :-)
