Hello and Good Morning!
How are you and how was your weekend? Ours was full and wonderful. Friday was spent avoiding work (ha!) and doing some grocery shopping. That night I made strawberry sorbet (which no one had on Saturday...we were all too full from dinner...but Fletch and I tried it Sunday and it is so good!!).
Saturday I got up and made a couple of salads to go with dinner - corn & black bean salad and a cucumber salad. Then I put on my wellies and went across the street to Rob's garden. The weeds between his raised boxes are high, so I wanted my legs and feet protected. There was plenty of bounty to pick:
Several kinds of tomatoes and hot peppers! I could not find the zuchinni - the squash vines (he is growing several kinds) are so huge and creeping everywhere. Honestly, I was worried about snakes!
The rest of Saturday was spent taking it easy and waiting for folks to arrive. We did see a few creatures though. First up some cute fawns. Their mama was under our apple tree munching on some fallen fruit.
And we saw two tiny (very tiny) frogs, Here is one of them:
You know Tyg was pleased!!
Colin & Mailing showed up late afternoon and then even later, Leslie, Jaimie and Emmy arrived. I can't even begin to tell you how wonderful it was to see them again. It had been way too long. Here is Leslie (my best friend since we were 12 years old!!):
And then here are Colin & Mailing with Jaimie and Emmy.
The weather was perfect (a little humid at times) and we had grilled burgers to go with the salads. Emmy kept us entertained doing flips and handsprings in the yard while we all caught up for hours on end. It was late when Colin and Mailing finally left to go home and we went to bed. It was over way too soon and the girls left around 7 Sunday morning. They had a long (8 hour) drive ahead and were anxious to be home.
Fletch and I relaxed on Sunday and I ended up having to do some work (which I had avoided on Friday). I found a little time for stitching too.
Now it's back to routines. I have a conference call at 10 and am planning to go to the office tomorrow. Here's to a good week ahead!
