Last Days Of Summer

While walking in Paris last month, I saw this window display:

It is obvious, at least to me, that this product must have been developed by dirty old men. A bust firming cream "with lifting and firming ingredients."

Yeah, and after they finished inventing this stuff, they used their left-over ingredients to create Viagra. Enough said.

These are the last days of summer here in the northern hemisphere. Fall arrives this weekend. With it will come the chores and foods of fall: raking leaves, cleaning up the yard and garden, cutting logs to burn in the wood stove, getting out the winter clothes and putting away the shorts, and making soups, stews, choucroute garnie, smoked meats, stuffed and roasted chicken, and all the plats mijotés that we love.

For now, though, the weather forecast is for a couple of days of sunshine and warm temperatures. I've gotta get to work on trimming the hedge!
