lawn chairs and tableclothes

Hi Folks-

My favorite time of year. Some mornings I can legit wear my flannel shirt, often changing into shorts when I get home from work. The carpet of maple leaves in our backyard (almost all bright yellow) keeps the sun in mind and the gray edgy sky sets off the red and orange. We’ve got one die hard maple in the front that is completely green and hasn’t lost a leaf, we’ll see how that goes.

I’m a little obsessed with fried chicken and Louisville was the place to get that going on. We picked the best (according to half a dozen sites) fried chicken chicken place I could find. Joella’s Hot Chicken. Now, I was picking the places and but we definitely coordinated on what we wanted to eat. When our uber pulled up to what looked like a remade gas station, with florescent lights, metal lawn chairs and ginormous pepsi dispenser I could hear Peter gulp for air. Not that he was worried about it but I could just hear him thinking “Oh dear god, this is so not Sharon’s kind of place.” And you know, he’s generally kind of right but when you are looking for a thing, you find the thing where it is and that’s part of the charm. So I was charmed, and the chicken was good and I got a freaking amazing white table cloth meal the next night, which we both loved and he now felt I deserved ;-).

Great fish tomorrow
