A nice day...

...a day to catch up. Sometimes you think you are so very behind on everything, but when you start sorting through it, it's not quite as bad as you thought.

I haven't been out to the garden during the intense sewing the past few days. So after breakfast, we went out to check on it. This is what we found waiting for us:

I was afraid the hornworms had taken over while I was away, but I didn't find any. Found a few caterpillar eggs, and a few aphids and flea beetles, but nothing major.

I've washed a few dishes (still by hand - the dishwasher still isn't working right) and clothes. Chad came home to do some work here this afternoon, so we went to the little Mexican place nearby for lunch.

Yesterday Lydia told me that her doll needed a pink hat and shoes, so I started that on the ride to the restaurant.Now I'm going to make a cup of coffee. Nice day.

One of my favorite ways to eat a tomato is cut into bite-sixed pieces alongside scrambled eggs. It makes bacon or sausage totally unnecessary. (It just doesn't smell as good as bacon.) Your bowl of bounty looks lovely. (I wish I could give you some cucumbers! They're all over the place!)

Didja ever notice how CLOSE the X and the Z are on the keyboard?
Me neither!

Actually, I hit X for Z all the time!

You know, I WISH I liked raw tomatoes. They look soooo good, but when I bite into them, I just can't stand it. It's something about the texture, I think. So if I eat them, they will have to be cooked. :-( Mama likes tomatoes on biscuits, which is a similar breakfast thing, I guess.

Hey, I could make pickles if I had some of your cucumbers! And CAN them! Do you have any idea how hard it is to find dill relish without Yellow 5 or 6?
