I'm not ready for summer to be over, not quite yet. But this weekend it felt like Fall, maybe even a little cooler than Fall! And it was gray, yucky gray. That was the worst of it. I thought only Saturday was gonna be cold, wet and gray but it turned out Sunday was the same way. So, what else can you do when it's cold outside? Bake cookies, of course.
Someone was appreciative.
They never left the kitchen. I made a quadruple batch and it will last for 6 weeks, hopefully, if we dole them out sparingly.
Then Sunday morning, since it was still chilly, we turned the oven on again and made Dutch Babies for breakfast.
Saturday morning we headed over to the farmer's market for supplies. The tomatoes were delicious, so we bought basil to go with them. Then Sunday night we turned them into this.
H-man made this all by himself. Who knew he had this talent? I think he's been holding out on us!
So many things at the Farmer's market were calling our names. The carrots, peaches, lettuce, eggs, corn on the cob. So many yummy things, only a few bags to carry it all in (and only so much room in the refrigerator).
I love this time of year when everything is so fresh and available.
In other news, Tyler made it home safely on Friday. We made it to our Dr. appointments and so far nothing is conclusive. The surgeon couldn't tell us if he will have to have surgery to remove the mass until he meets with another Dr. We hope to know more later this week. Until then, we'll just hope he doesn't have another episode.
Amber and Andy spent some time this weekend getting the baby's room ready. They have bought a crib and will be picking it up soon. The painting will begin soon in pretty baby girl colors. I'm sure there will be pink in there somewhere. They have been feeling the baby move now. It's so exciting.
I had planned to go out to the garden this weekend but with all the rain and cold weather I never made it. Maybe tomorrow. I should have some things that are ripe by now.
With summer almost over I've had lots of hummingbirds at the feeder. Instead of just coming for breakfast, lunch and dinner they seem to keep coming all day long. As soon as one leaves, another arrives. I've even had two there at once which I have never seen before. Of course, I could never get a picture of that. Not yet anyway.
Please summer, stay a little longer.
