The garden never lies, and out there in our flower beds, the look of Fall has begun.
I picked a basketful of italian tomatoes from the straw bale patch today and cooked them down to make a veggie lentil soup. Wonderful stuff, full of garlic...oops Jim will be home late tonight...what was I thinkin'? He hee.
It's almost Herb Fest time, in two more weeks, and the group who shared a booth last
year are going for it again. Everything is supposed to slant towards a garden theme.
I've been busy painting up little birdhouses. Not sure if I'll do cards this year or not. Here's a sample of what has been done so far. Three dollars each is what I had in mind for these. Josh made hummingbird cinnamon ornies to hang in cars last year, and plans to make them a few days before the event to keep the scent strong.
He sold them all. You never know what he's making in his little craft corner in his bedroom. It's like the Keebler cookie factory in there!
Josh and Jen had a supper date at Bob Evans in the next town East, a nice mid-way point to meet. Jen's parents brought her, so it was nice to meet them, and we all took pics of our 'special couple' and swapped phone numbers.
School registration is next week. Classes begin again the following week. Summer took flight and Autumn is waiting in the wings to take over.
Wishing you all well, and hope you enjoy these starry nights, lit by fireflies and the restful, sleepy sound of voices in the dark.
