Cherimoya Sorbet

When R came to pick me up to take our dogs to the river, he brought me two cherimoyas! And picked wild Nisperos from a tree in the Rumi Wilco forest. See my recipe for Nispero Jam, yum.

And Tiko full-out swam today! His first time! I mean, its because he was deathly afraid of crossing the bridge, and we were on the other side. Even R’s dog came over, and boy, did Tiko try. He stayed near the edge, wanted to so badly, but his fear overcame him, and finally went down and swam across. But good for him for swimming across a wide, flowing river where he couldn’t touch the ground!
