It was a dark and rainy kind of day here today. I spent a lot of time sewing. It is nice to be able to sit on the breezeway and work no matter what the weather. I made this shirt and a new cover for my sewing machine.
Good grief, I could have used a bit of make-up here.
I spent so much time weeding last week, I thought I could coast for the rest of July. Guess what...the weeds I missed were about two feet high yesterday. And speaking of July, I cannot believe it is almost over. I have been in a bit of a fog lately.
My sister-in-law introduced me to fennel last winter. I used it in a spinach salad with dried cranberries and walnuts tonight--really yummy. Mike had his lettuce, tomato and olive salad. He had chicken. I had roasted vegetables. We shared some brown rice. Some nights it feels like I am running a restaurant.
Corn-on-the-cob season is just around the corner. We both appreciate that. Then it's apple pie season after that. Oh, I never can get rid of those ten extra pounds! Darn!
