Where did the Summer go!

OMGosh! It seems like it was just last week I was whining about the cold winter weather. Last winter was mild but I do dislike
having to go out into the elements. This summer was amazing. We have been busy setting up housekeeping in our new and newer campers. I have enjoyed every minute and frustration. We just get to the point where we can just hang out at the
camper and the season is almost over.
Our camper is up in the mountains in WVA. Weather sets in early, so they close the part of the campgrounds where we stay. Which is fine, except that means no water for December, January and February. I don't know why it bothers me, working during the week
and then heading for the campgrounds doesn't leave much time for getting the household chores done. So, into the breach I will be going.
I actually love this time of year. I like football Sundays and fixing soups, stews and cassaroles that just don't fit in the summer menus. One of my favorites is beer cheese soup. The last time I made it, Darryl ate it but really didn't care for the sharper
cheese that I used. It did make the soup a little grainy. I plan on making it again soon using a less sharp chedder mixed with the traditional American staple, Velveeta. We are getting a TV for the camper so we will be able to hang out just a little later
on Sundays to watch football and make soup. I'll let you know how it turns out.
Hope everyone is safe and sound. Be grateful for what we have because there are so many that don't have anything.
