Wow. Here it is August 7th already and I haven’t even posted once in August. Pitiful! There’s lots going on around here, but nothing exciting. I’m super happy to finally see August arrive. Summer is my least favorite season (not a heat fan) but I think August is my favorite month of Summer. There’s just a hint that summer will soon be over. ;-D
So, here are a few tidbits for your August:
We’ve finally had some fairly regular rain showers in the last few weeks. I don’t think we’re officially out of a drought, but there has been enough water to green things back up around here. That makes for very happy flowers. And me!
My little garden plot is paying off and I’m loving it. Every night I can go outside and grab a handful of tomatoes for a salad. And the absolute best is driving by on the lawnmower and popping a tomato or two into my mouth. Yuuuuum Yum! Here’s the tomato haul from last night.
We’re not growing any corn, but one of my very favorite things about August is the corn from the local farm stand. Last week I tried the microwave method of cooking corn in the husks. Oh. My. Gosh. I couldn’t believe it actually works and it’s fantastic. I think I thought it would bomb like the microwave cakes in a mug. The corn was yummy and tender and best of all — no corn silks! If you haven’t heard of this method, you can watch a video here:
While we’re watching videos, I saw this VERY funny video on Pinterest. You don’t need to speak German to get the gist — “So Papa, how do you like the iPad we got you?”:
Another reason I’m excited about August is that it’s vacation month for me. I’ve been busily planning a trip. And that means I haven’t wanted to start any big projects before I go. I am planning a little project though — it involves these towels. ;-D
And one last video…in honor of the olympics! A special gymnastics demonstration by Paulette Huntinova.
Have a good week!
