Here are a few bits from recent days:

The moon was full last week. I know that it happens every 28 days or so, but every time it happens, it's my favorite. This time, I was sitting in the back yard for the better portion of the evening, peeping at the moon through trees and clouds.

We had a birthday party for Mindy. It was a small group of the best girls around. We roasted hot dogs around a fire and made s'mores. Also? The marshmallows for the s'mores were my homemade ones.

Let it be known that I have finally perfected that recipe. Let it also be known that my pants are a little snugger than they were before I perfected that recipe.
(Just kidding. But that made for a nicer transition...)

Consequently, today's lunch consisted almost entirely of tomatoes from my garden.

What's that? Oh. Why, yes. I did grow those tomatoes. Through three freezes and an abnormally wet winter that is giving way to a very warm, very dry spring. Ideal tomato-growing conditions? I think not. And it's been a record harvest.

Moons, marshmallows and tomatoes. All beautiful and worth bragging about. Those tomatoes especially.

Oh my, I'm still dreaming about those marshmallows. Thank you again, dear friend, for hosting our wonderful little shindig....I laughed until my face hurt (thanks to Christina and her smore shorts)!
