Had another good dinner party a couple of nights ago; a chickpea and carrot salad, parmesan and lemon rissoto, prawns in a chili sauce, and melons with sorbet and a lime sugar. Tasty tasty.

The summer is starting to wind down a bit; we've only got 2 weeks left of work. Then Annie's in town for a weekend, then I bum about for a week and hopefully interview with some firms, and then it's back to MN.

It's too bad, there were a couple of rivers I had save for late in the season since they run late, and now I'm realizing that i may not be able to get on them. Oh well, I suppose I have that week of downtime, and there's always next summer.
