Harry is a 5 month old Terrier mix.
We rescued him from the county animal shelter.
Nathan said we had to rescue him because he was getting beaten up by the other dogs in his kennel.
He is a sweet, well behaved little guy.
I'm sure you'll be seeing more of Harry around here soon.

I struggled a bit with the inspiration, so I went with a midsummer evening picnic theme. My swap partner Sue, is a multitalented farm girl in Tennessee. Check out her farm website and her blogs. She keeps herself pretty busy with crops and dairy goats and all sorts of farm critters.
Here's a look at the goodies I sent her:
A few thrifted summer themed cookbooks, locally made caramels (one of her favorite sweets) and some pretty notecards in Sue's favorite colors.
You can't really tell from this photo, but there are homemade marshmallows in that jar. I followed this recipe and they are fabulous! (Nathan ate 7 of them at one sitting!)
Overall, I was very happy with the package I put together for Sue and so was she. I'll post photos of my goodies when the package arrives. Speaking of which, I better go check the mail. :)

If you have a Roma Tomato plant in your garden, do not leave it unattended.
If you do, when you return, the plants will be loaded with fruit.
Loaded with fruit that looks suspicously like.....
Not the Romas I was anticipating. Not even close.
So much for delicious homemade red sauce.
Any recipes for Yellow Tomatoes?
Oh, and those Red Bell Peppers I planted?
They're sneaky too.
If you turn your back, they produce these......My guess is that they're really Anaheim Peppers.
Any recipes for those?
Well, at least my other tomatoes are behaving themselves.
I think it's Salsa time!

Nathan captaining a rented boat out on the lake.
A beautiful day to be out on the water.
My turn as captain.
Hanging out at the campsite, playing DS.
