An entire week has flown by so soon? It never ceases to amaze me. Apparently, I am easily amazed.

Let's see, what did I have on the docket? Hmmm...seems as if it's zip. Wait, wait, I can do better than that. Let's start off with a cute picture of Auntie and Sam who, along with Jakob, enjoyed a camping trip with friends over the weekend.
~Sam and Laurel~
Gotta love the grins. I have no idea where Jake was when this picture was taken. Perhaps swimming. So that's the only photo of Labor Day things even though I was invited to a Labor Day meal at my son's with the family. He made Greek kabobs on the grill...yummy...Michelle made Rice Pilaf and a veggie platter with hummus for dip and Laurel made a traditional cole slaw. It was all delicious. After dinner, we walked down to the ice cream shop where four of us enjoyed Flurries (two Butterfinger and two Oreo), one a vanilla milkshake, and one a chocolate mint cone.
On Saturday, I was visiting the Farmer's Market when I saw a box of tomatoes for canning. With the drought, tomatoes are running $3.50 a pound or more. A good-sized tomato can be pretty expensive. Anyway, I was thrilled to see that the price on the tomatoes was $7 for a half-bushel. The mother lode! On my way home with all those tomatoes I realized that I was going to have to think of something quick. (I do not can.) Sometimes I forget that I am only one. I tried dropping off some with my niece...not home. Fortunately, she would come later and take about half of them off my hands. I did blanch some for freezing in ziploc bags for sauces; the rest are lined up on my window sill like the stars of September that they are.

I have been eating a lot of this...

Okay, my dear, I have exhausted conversation for today. Friday perhaps, I'll have some book conversation for you. I'm in the middle of a series and enjoying it very, very much.
