Snuggle Time

When Mike comes home from travel there is a lot of snuggling! I wonder what will happen when she gets bigger?

Updates & All.

Well here is a brief update. I was single parenting it last week. Mike is now home and I had trigger thumb surgery yesterday. Been that sort of few weeks!

I used to juice stuff all the time. But I have gotten out of the habit. I've decided to start up again and use stuff that is getting close to going bad. Do you ever juice??

Watch Wednesdays

Old video - but oh so good!

Summer Putting Up!

Here are some more things from the garden that I've starting putting up for winter. I've found a nice recipe for the peaches and the pesto is my good old standard. What are you harvesting and saving this year?

Peeled and sliced. Put into a jar with sugar water (1 cup sugar to 3 cups of water). Can for 20-30 minutes.

2 cups basil
1/2 cup Parmesan
1/2 cup olive oil
1/3 cup pin nuts
3 cloves garlic
3 roasted green chiles
Salt and pepper to taste
All in a blender or mixer of some kind. I put it into a Tupperware and cover the top in olive oil. Stays fresh in the freezer for up to a year.

Labor Day Fun!

We got this jogging stroller from a friend. Zooey is finally big enough to use it. We went for our first 3 mile run!
