Two guesses on which kid is learning to play fiddle!
In today's harvest: The "Orange Wellingtons" have arrived!
I have been anxiously awaiting these tomatoes, they are very pretty, and my first non-red/black tomatoes I have grown. They are much more orange than they look on my camera!
I have been running non stop since yesterday morning trying to be as productive as possible during our cool weather. It seems that all our appointments, bill paying, swimming lessons, shopping, errands have all been begging for attention and I capped it off with our monthly grocery trip, ugh! This morning after spending 2 hours in the commissary on base (on military payday at that!) fighting the crowds, I finally made it to the freezer section which I am usually able to bypass pretty quickly - my usual is to cruise by one door, fling some Boca burgers (my kids love 'em!) into the cart and boogie to the checkouts - but nooooooo! Kids start begging for this:
Don't know where/whom they heard about these from (tv?), but begged and begged until I finally said, "whatever" and put 2 in the cart. I was looking over my shoulder all embarrassed until I saw a lady with 4 overweight kids with a stack of them in her cart. I figured I could fly under the radar with her next to me, so I hid them under some other stuff and trucked on. I can't believe I did this, but my kids never eat junk, not lunchables, corn dogs, pizza rolls, none of that - so I relaxed this one day since I knew I was not going to have time for cooking anyways tonight.
The best part was watching them as they prepared to eat it. They went from jumping up and down excited while is was spinning 'round in the microwave, to just plain being dumbfounded when it was done. Check out the faces!
Fledgling Fiddler Lochlann says "Mom, it looks like the plastic food we had in our play kitchen"! I believe he's right...
I got LOTS of stuff done today! Loving the weather - will be working hopefully outside all day tomorrow. Should have some pics of what's going on once I clear away the weeds.
Maybe Loch should practice his fiddle outside, maybe that will work on those Japanese Beetles, nothing else seems to scare them off!
