This year the Nguyens are joining us half way through the week. We’re going to have so much fun! The kids are going to love it! I can’t wait-I feel like one of the kids myself!
I’m going over to Katherine’s house today-going to cook pumpkins and seeds and talk about the trip to Vail, make menus maybe… It’s going to be a fun day. Even going to take the boys over to their house after school…then Bee has a football game tonight. Gotta think of something quick and easy for late dinner.
Just gonna share some happy pictures now… I still can’t believe I’m eating tomatoes and liking it… For 39 years I hated tomatoes… I’m not sure what changed… These are my homegrown Romas added to a dull frozen pizza and they made a world of yummy difference!
I’m not the only one who’s going to miss our tomatoes! K.C. has just discovered the joys of homegrown tomatoes too…
They’re so funny… they accompany me outside every single time now and cry and beg and look at the tomato plants. (spoiled rotten doggies!)
I’m not complaining, I love sharing with them. They’re so much fun…tootsie-pop discovered a couple ripe strawberries yesterday too! It was like she won the doggie lottery!
I picked most of the bell peppers yesterday. I think they aren’t enjoying the cooler weather that we’ve been having and they aren’t growing nearly as quickly as they were… Also broke down and cut a couple flowers to enjoy indoors… I don’t know why I have a problem cutting flowers… I’ve thought a cutting garden would be a lot of fun to have, but I already have roses everywhere… why not cut one once in a while? Pretty, huh?
My Mom and Dad are in Ft. Collins this morning, picking up my quilt for me. She’s going to send me a picture later today and then I’ll pick it up this Saturday. I’m really excited. Can’t wait for Katherine and I to have time to bind it off.
And speaking of binding off… I finished the cute, little sleeveless hoodie. I love it. It’s thick and warm. The boys love that it has a hood. I still need to put the zipper in and it hasn’t been washed yet… But I couldn’t wait to share it… I’m so happy that this one actually fits and they can wear it THIS year… lol
I can’t wait for Mama to finish her version of this sweater. It’s a beautiful burnt orange. Mine was made for Will this time and Mama’s is for Bee. (not that it matters, they’ll both probably end up wearing both sweaters…)
I guess that’s it for now. Need some more coffee.
Hope you have a great Monday!
