Hello My Friends,
Welcome to Friday. I'm so glad it's here. The week has been gorgeous (weather-wise) but it has felt very long. Work once again has been crazy busy (summers have never been crazy busy before - weird). I've a couple of conference calls (10 a.m. and 1 p.m.) and hopefully after the last of them I can move into full weekending mode!
We had a surprise call from Colin yesterday (surprise because we usually talk on the weekends, so this was a nice change). They are back from the Bahamas where they had a wonderful time. They stayed in a remote area where there was not much to do (other than kayaking, snorkling, swimming, eating conch salad and feeding stingrays, etc., etc.) and he said it was wonderful to have 6 days together with absolutely nothing they had to do. Sounds good to me!
While Fletch was talking with him, I wandered around the yard. I picked some more apples!
Last night I tried one of them (the tiny one, top center) and it was not good. Boo-Hoo. It had just about no flavor whatsoever. We will try another one or two and hope that they will be better.
That bowl, by the way is gorgeous. I should take a picture of it empty. My SIL bought it for me. The potter used a doily and pressed it into the clay when it was still damp, so the inside of the bowl is patterned with the doily. So pretty!
Continuing my walk around the yard, I went into the garden and discovered the jalapenos are finally producing!
Also, the yellow squash has finally gotten to a size worth picking!
This particular brand is named "Smooth Criminal" - LOL. Fletch got the seeds from his brother in Virginia.
On the menu tonight is green bean casserole using beans from the garden. Fletch is going to grill lamb chops. Yum!!
I failed to get a picture, but Fletch finally picked the first cherry tomatoes! There were 6 and we munched them right down at lunch yesterday.
Garden bounty! Nothing better. Wishing you all a wonderful, bountiful weekend!
