    We had a small Bday BBQ for hubby yesterday... first time seeing some friends that we hadn't seen since March. It was really nice, but now I am a little nervous, thinking about the new dreaded "C" word. Nobody was showing any signs of sickness... I think now after so many months I am feeling a bit paranode, I don't like this feeling at all. :/

    1 AF / 3 days

    I started the talk of beets. I love them and had success growing them this year. This recipe has the beets, beet greens, and blue cheese. I’ll try them grated!

    The key lime tree is outside in the summer and inside during the winter. We live in NJ😁. Started it 5 years ago from a nursery as a small twig on a transplant root. Maybe 12” high. It’s 4’ now. We never get enough all at once for a pie, so I’m glad to pick them and toss them in drinks.

    @dawnbgethealthy ....try sprinkling a little feta on those beets after roasting ??

    Good tip. Thanks!
    I usually roast them with herbs from my garden, delish.
    I very rarely eat cheese, but I will have to try that : - )

    Hello Everyone.
    I am Dawn and live in South East British Columbia. I am 60.
    My goal remains the same as it has been for quite some time, 16-20 AF days per month.

    I do it kind of diary style:

    Thursday October 01 - AF - I did manage 17AF days for September even though I drank every single day (moderately) of my birthday week while away. I have to wean myself off of that path.
    Friday October 02 - AF - I really felt like having drinks though.
    Saturday October 03 - Drinks. I did flirt with the idea of an AF October...for a minute. Not yet, and not sure if ever I will want to be joining the sober squad.
    Sunday October 04 - AF - Really going to try to get back to having at least 2AF days in a row this month.

    Rolling total: 3 AF days out of 4 days so far.

    @Samand303
    Fabulous photos! Thanks!

    I had no idea what a Key Lime Tree looked like, or that it would have such beautiful flowers.
    I guess that you will be dragging that 4 foot tree inside sometime this month in NJ.

    I put beet greens into so many things. I cut them when they are tender and nice and generally freeze them to make them easier to slice into strips to add to stir-frys, chili, soups, etc.

    Still waiting for more photos of your getaway @MissMay
    I think that you mentioned a trip to a pumpkin patch?

    @chocolate_owl
    I am glad that you had such a nice trip.
    Beautiful pictures.
    Thanks for posting them.
    That bridge looks terrifying.

    I really really love to see people's pictures on here.

    @dawnbgethealthy lugging in the key lime wouldn’t be too bad if I didn’t have to carry it up 3 steps! Then I put it on a little roller and I crawl/push it across the carpet. My own mini-workout 💪😂

    When we kept it on the patio, so no steps/even with the house, the wind would blow it off the edge!

    Dang...now I want a gin and tonic and it’s only 1pm work lunch break 😁
