Well you might be wondering where I have been this week. It has been a crazy week for sure. Last Friday I found out I had strep throat. I got medication and spent the majority of the weekend on the sofa relaxing. I flew to Washington DC on Monday morning. Got there late. Tuesday I had to brief a bunch of people at NNSA. Was there until late. Then flew home on Wednesday. While I was in DC Mike was holding down the fort and found that when the construction people re-built our spare bathroom they screwed up the pipping to the tub and it has been leaking water since July. The drywall in our bedroom is ruined and we aren't sure about the hardwood floor. He had to deal with the plumber and the contractor who is responsible. Meanwhile sick Moab is on antibiotics and is doing much better. We think she might be fixed. Fingers crossed! I went to work yesterday to a mass of email and voice mail and things to respond to - and now I have today off. I'm still trying to relax and get through all my medication for this cough. Hopefully this next week I can get more blogging in!

The Kevins are growing up. I know you are out there in the real world worried about how they are doing. They spend most of their time eating, playing and walking around looking for bugs. They are too cute and too fun. I can't believe we waited so long to get them!

Before Mike left on travel again we decided to make some lasagna. We tested out the pasta maker again. The cool thing about it is that the lasagna noodles don't get boiled before you bake them. Just make fresh noodles and layer away. Mike and I have decided this was the best pasta dish we have ever had. Amazing and really I think the needles added so much. How come we don't make pasta from scratch more often??

I'm still putting up stuff from the garden this year. With that mass of pears, Karen had suggested that I make pear ginger butter. In the end I had apples, pear and ginger. I let it cook all day and canned it. Amazing flavor and perfect. I've been pouring it over vanilla ice cream. Are you done putting up for the year?

When I take Mike to the airport early in the morning we normally stop at The Range Cafe and get breakfast. Once a year Albuquerque has a large balloon festival. It always happens that as I'm driving Mike down the festival is going on. I'm not sure what is up with his travel schedule, but it is nice for us. We can see all the balloons and no traffic.

For the past three to four months once a week a group of us get together and run up at the ski hill. It has been Bob, Mike, Katie and I mostly. Mike and Bob mountain bike while Katie and I run. It has been one of the best summers for running on the trails up there and enjoying lunch at the cafe after. This week, this Friday, is the last day the cafe will be open and probably one of the last times we can run up there. My how the changing seasons change our activities. What routine changes in your life when the season change?

Here is my model pose. I used to practice my "I'm a bitch" look - what do you think? Runway ready? I was tossing on clothing, cleaning out things from last season that haven't been worn and of course getting rid of shoes that are looking for a new home. If you have size 7-8 please check out the shoes that I'm giving away. Would you care to take any of them?

Well it was Mike's birthday and my nephew's birthday. There was a lot of fun to be had. On Mike's birthday we ate and ate and ate. Oh and ran/biked/and ate. His car was filled with 40 balloons. The White Rock in our town was painted and we had a fantastic time.
For my nephew's birthday we made a cake together. Of course there was a bit of death and destruction as a alligator eats a lego guy.
