Topical Tuesday

Today's topic~What sticks out in your mind of what you have done this summer? For me it would be things involving my family. I spent time with my girl scouts, which are like my kids, at several camps this summer, and we even let them test their wings of independence by going to camp for several days without us. In June, we took Mina and her friend Taylor, to see the "Cherry Poppin' Daddies" at the Cottonwood Festival. Taylor, though also not our daughter, is a part of our family as she is Mina's best bud and has spent a great deal of time with us this summer. My dad had a heart crisis, when his stress test showed abnormal results and he had to have more stints put in his heart. Chris, Mina, and I spent time together, swimming, beading, shopping, giggling, and aggravating each other. In July, we spent time with Chris' family for 4th of July, and had a big water park, pizza party for Mina's 10th birthday. That was a FUN party! I definitely recommend it! I enjoyed communicating with my niece Caitlyn, and nephew Matthew by email. I have learned a great deal from these two on instant message typing style, LOL, and I love to hear what is happening in their lives! Beading for my first big craft show has also been a huge part of our summer, and now with Chris making beads we are both very involved in the project! So though we didn't get away on vacation, we had a great summer. What about you? What sticks out from your summer?

This summer has gone so fast--when I think back on it, I see a blur of little scenes--going to movies on Monday nights with Jerry, eating supper outdoors, getting together with good friends for fun and summer food, waiting, and waiting, and waiting for the first tomato to be ripe, and treasured lazy afternoons at the water park. While it may get really darn hot, it is a wonderful time of year!

Thanks Carla! Agree about the tomatoes, but it is one slippery slope from that first ripe one to being up to your armpits in them!

You're right about the slippery slope. I've been showing up with them on neighbor's doorsteps, and my current "culinary challenge" is to see how many tomatoes I can work into one meal.
