30th January 2018
Crikey, it’s already the end of January. We have had a little cold snap here in southern California. I had to put my flowers in the car for a few nights due to frost warnings. Thank goodness we are back into the high 70’s. All is good now.
Our campground has quite a few citrus trees so I thought I had better make use of the FREE fruit. I do love that word FREE.
I had never seen a kumquat before.
But they sure made a nice little batch of marmalade.
They are many lemon and grapefruit trees here. I just needed a few oranges and some sugar.
Since I only have one saucepan it took several days and batches. I do believe I am set up with my tart and tangy marmalade for the rest of the year.
We have had a few great visits with Jay and Maya. That dog has so much energy! I need to make a huge dog pack so she can carry our lunches and water.
We snagged a bit of the Pacific Crest Trail. I could fib and say we did the trek to Saddle Junction but we only did a 6 mile round trip. It was very nice though.
We love bashing stuff with our sticks. Dean had the seeds flying out of this Agave .
There was a bit of slick rock. Even though it doesn’t look steep Dean is hoofing down a pretty gnarly rock.
Dax is coming down for a few days and I get to have some double son time. Yippeeee! Gotta get cracking on fixing some grub.
