Ahhhh.....a hot summer weekend.
The humidity has again settled in.
Makes for the dog {and cat} days of summer.

As you can see from the photo above, Emerson, Jackson and Oliver got some serious naps in this weekend.
Too hot to be productive.
That's what they tell me anyway.
Cait was upstairs in our her bed.

Poor Ollie still has a lump on his bum.
He had another one pop up on Thursday night.
Not sure what it is.
Possibly vaccination reaction.
The one on his bum makes it hard for him to get his little leg going.
I can only hope it goes away soon.

My garden shed shelves are up and it should be painted this week.

My garden is doing very well despite the heat and humidity.
I'm giving it lots of water.
I picked 2 medium zucchini on Saturday.
Perfect for Chocolate Zucchini Cake.

Cukes are getting close.
In the meantime, I purchased some at the farmers' market for eating as well as for freezer pickles.
I've got lots of flowers on my green bean plants {photo above}, but not much to pick yet.

Emerson has chosen a favorite squash.
Every time we go outside he checks on his squash.
He could care less about the rest of the garden {except trying to eat corn stalks and sit in the melon patch}.
Funny how he remembers it.

Well, Jay's on to his next "honey-do" project.
He's expanding the back deck.
Those "honey-do's" just don't end do they?

How about you - how was your weekend?

Pumpkin Cream Cheese Quick Bread

November 07, 2017

It's pumpkin season and this may be a perfect way to put it to good use.  This bread is light on pumpkin flavor but super moist and extremely delicious.  You can also freeze pumpkin puree measured into 1 c. containers to make this throughout the winter.  

I have not yet attempted a vegan version of this.  If I get brave I'll let you know......  Be careful not to over bake it.

Fall Is Almost Over?

October 24, 2017

Is it possible that fall is almost over? Temp's here are in the upper 60's and low 70's so you'd never know that it's the end of October. This just doesn't usually happen! Even the leaf peepers were likely disappointed this was so warm that the leaves just kind of crumbled off of the trees. Although they were pretty, there didn't seem to be the same brilliance of color that is...

It's true!
