Checking In

We got back from camping this afternoon.  Once again, we managed to spend three days of record breaking heat in the mountains, sitting next to and occasionally dunking ourselves into a cool mountain pond  I'll write about the experience later.  I've had a chance to get a pile of laundry done (almost), dispatch the truly monster weeds in the vegetable garden, and pick pounds of tomatoes and cucumbers.  I froze a gallon of stewed tomatoes, but I just don't know what I'll do with the cucumbers.  I read the newspapers to catch up on the latest doings of Washington, tea party people, Earl, and skimmed through the back log of blogs I follow.  Tomorrow it's pack up once again and head to Connecticut for a family reunion--so I'll miss Justin Beiber at the Champlain Valley Fair.  Right now, I'm pouring myself an extra large ice water--HEY, HERE'S AN IDEA...DROP IN A SLICE OR TWO OF CUCUMBER--and go watch Project Runway, which holds a strange but compelling attraction for me.
Hope everyone has a safe Labor Day weekend,


  1. Oh Olga, my summer in Oregon was filled with Justin Beiber as my three-year-old grandson fell in love with one of his songs (Baby Baby). We had to play the video on YouTube over and over and he refused to get his hair cut so it could look like Justin Beiber's. And this is a three year old!

  2. Aren't we supposed to NOT labor this weekend?
    Goodness what a schedule you keep. Could use a tad of your energy.
    Hope Earl effects don't cause any damage. Maybe it will at least break the heat. Stay safe.


I appreciate readers' comments so much. You don't even always have to agree with me.
