Our Sweet Basil is growing like a weed right now! And without ripe tomatoes, we aren’t eating it yet. I think I will trim it way back and get my dehydrator out!

I didn’t have high hopes… gluten free pie crust? Mulberries? I just started playing with rhubarb this summer and the jury is still out on it… But you put them all together and THEY’RE DELICIOUS! (I know, it’s not a pretty pie – the crust was very sticky and hard to work with) But darned if the ugly thing wasn’t very yummy! I’m glad because it was a lot of work!

We’re drying out this week, with the high temperatures each day of 100+. But last week we had many afternoons that looked just like this. I think the Nebraska panhandle is as green as it has EVER been!

Finished these today for a friend’s baby boy, due in October. This is my favorite baby bootie pattern, very easy and quick, but you have to find a stretchy bind off or the cuff will be too tight. And I adlibbed the crocheted ties. I remember it being tough keeping booties on my babies! Here’s the pattern, if you’d like to look: http://knit4children.tripod.com/id16.html and here’s the stretchy bind off that I used (it’s very cool): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=abBhe-JYmgI .

Got Happy Meals and took them to the park to eat! We used to do this all the time in Iowa. I’d pick up tiny boys at preschool around lunch time and we’d go pick up lunch at McDonald’s and head to the closest park. Of course in West Des Moines/Des Moines there’s a park on every other block to choose from! It was awesome and we frequented ALL of them!
See? (November 2005 at some beautiful park in Wes Des Moines, Iowa.)

This is a photo for a scavenger hunt the boys and I are doing. Supposed to be a person, making a silly face. So, out to dinner the other night, I asked our Daddy to make a silly face and this is what we got. Ain’t he purdy… and he’s all mine, girls! LOL Love you, honey!!
