We have stopped a few times at a produce stand on the outskirts of town. They have a nice selection of reasonably priced produce. The other day I asked what a persimmon tastes like. The guy had a hard time describing it and told me to take one and try it. So I did.
It looks kind of like a tomato, but it’s not as soft. It is definitely not like anything I’ve eaten before with a mild flavor. I would compare it to a pear for texture and taste, but not exactly. I found out they are high in Vitamin A and C and fiber and are good for you. I’ll be going back and buying some. I love new discoveries!
On Wednesday I had planned to run a few errands. It had been raining most of the day, and when I got down to the campground entrance road, there was water flowing over it again. It wasn’t closed this time, but I wasn’t taking any chances so I came back home. Yesterday the rain stopped, and the road was fine so I did some grocery shopping and picked up some fabric for a quilt project.
We took a little walk yesterday and it was a bit chilly but the sun was shining. The weather people are going on and on about the arctic temperatures. It got into the 30s last night. It makes us laugh :)
I updated my Campground Review page and organized the digital pictures I took while the boys were here. We’ve rented a few movies at Redbox including Salt, Charlie St. Cloud and Going the Distance. They were all OK, nothing earth shattering.
I hope everyone has a safe and enjoyable New Year’s Eve. We have no big plans. We’ll enjoy the wine we bought in Pahrump and watch the festivities on TV.
Don’t wish upon a star – Reach for one!
