I went to town and smiled at this restaurant's boast~I suppose I need to make some inquiries to see if this is true!
I am busy with sunsets in NM as they continue to take my breath away.
We have been hiking...
We worked on the floors a bit in the room that houses the library...and we still need to finish the trim on the shelf and make baseboards.
I have been making salads in mason jars. Oh what a simple idea that keeps the salad fresh! This is such an easy way to pack the lunches for the week~
I was frightened in the garden by this critter. He was buried up to his head and all I saw were his eyes~which I thought were the eyes of an eViL rattler...I may have to confess at this point how VERY afraid I am of rattlesnakes~yep. I can't help it.
We have been eating a bit of squash again this year. I am almost ready to begin the summer squash challenge. So far we have been enjoying the squash sliced and fried in butter with salt and pepper, but I know we will tire of this-then another year of the squash creative recipes will begin in earnest!
The garden has been keeping me busy...in this photo: endive, kale, parsley, cilantro, patty pan squash, zucchini, Great Lakes lettuce, spinach, and flowering arugula which I am drying as we have decided we are not an arugula family(no worries, the sheep LOVE it).
I am still wondering what our mystery squash plant is. I did not plant this and yet here it is with squash growing on it...the squash is yellow and green...oh and yes the tomato plant on the left is dying. Our tomatoes are failing miserably this year.
My Fourth and I have been playing a bit of games. She is a delight and makes her dad and I happy.
This guy and his minions are out all over...and I am always alert monitoring the ground looking for these slithering things as well as tarantulas~and RATTLESNAKES. In case I have not made mention of my snake issue, I may have a mild snake a phobia. I am not going to look up what the actual phobia is, as I find that too scary!
Oh I must close with what keeps me most busy. I am really learning to rest in the beauty around me. I am appreciating the amazing surroundings, thanking God for my family, and enjoying the summer.
I pray my readers are doing the same. Stay tuned for the Squash Recipe Challenge of 2012!
