A Jumble of a Post

Here's an assortment of odds and sods to catch up on from the past week.
  • I cannot wait until these are ripe. Our long driveway is lined with blackberries and they are my perfect summer berry recipe ingredient. 
  • We are beyond excited for our week at the lake. I have already started to gather the important stuff for packing (books, games and yarn).
  •  I have harvested most of my garden and when we get back I plan on reinvigorating it with some mid to late-season veggies. The weeds right now are winning but I am coming for them. (this sunflower is 5 feet tall!)
  • I functioned on less than 4 hours sleep and went to work. Not something I want to make a habit of.
  • Cleaning out your fridge makes all the food inside look more appetizing (or is that just me?)
  • I am not a big fan of devices for kids but if you are going to sit outside under a tree with your iPod, I can manage that - for a while anyway.
  • None of my cucumbers made it. I need to buy some as I still want to make pickles.
  • Going outside still in your PJ's and on the front porch I guess still qualifies for my "You can play on your iPod as long as your are getting some fresh air" rule.
  • I plan on bringing my laptop to the lake and working from there today so life is good.


  1. Sorry to hear about your cucumbers but the blackberries look good so far!
    Love the photos of your little boys, especially the one of Grayden, he has such a cute expression there.

    Have fun on your vacation! I can't wait to see photos afterwards.

  2. Thanks Gabi! We are all counting sleeps now.
