I've been harvesting tomatoes O'plenty! I've given away 3 full strainers full and I need to go out when it gets cooler and probably find another strainer full. I think I'll make some salsa. If I don't make it too 'hot' then I'll be able to eat it. Otherwise the rest of the family will eat it. Charlie's man says it's real easy to make tomato soup so I'm going to go looking for a recipe for that next.
Our little Chihuahua is pregnant and last evening my grand daughter thinks she spotted a little white worm in her poop. So today I got her some worm medicine and mixed it into some Turkey Pate' but she won't eat it. And it's pretty spendy too. Maybe if I cover it with some gravy and mashed potatoes she'll eat it. She hasn't had much of an appetite lately but the book says that's normal. Her tummy is so big with the babies that she can't eat much. just often. I'm going to be the midwife and our Tiny Human is going to assist me. Her mother is too squeamish. She'd probably barf all over the place
I just posted a link on my face book page for the annual Time Of Remembrance event here in Richland. It a weekend to meet with other families who are suffering the same loss and who are usually too soon forgotten. I'm going to put the link here also: Just in Case! http://timeofremembrance.org/ There is a yellow button on the left side of the page if you want to donate. This year is a really tight year and more families to care for. Every little bit helps!
Moe and Phil should be winding down their trip. They have been on the road foe the month of August. She did 9 National Parks in 9 days. I've been getting the pictures and making scrap book pages. Here's a few that I've done.
They had a great trip and shared some beautiful pictures.
The land in the mid to western US is a lot of dessert. Complete with all the creatures that inhabit it.
And I lived close to this one and never made to see it in person. Maybe next time.
This is Canyon Lands Nat'l Park. Phil taking a picture and Moe posing by the sign.
Black Canyon Nat'l Park looks like some climbing to do.
Early in the month Moe officiated a wedding and they ran into some old friends at the camp grounds. That was an extra good time.
Moe had the fun of standing in 4 states with one foot. Geographically this is where they intersect and so there is large metal and marble plaque to mark the spot. I have a picture of me standing there but it was a long time ago. Now it cost $5.00 to stand up there and get your picture taken. And there are vendors all around the circle, some Native American and some others are different nationalities.
It's time to check the news. Louisiana has been having way too much rain and thousands are homeless this week. Flood waters up to the porch roof and lots of rescues going on. I only hope they thought to look out for the animals. During past storms volunteers have run through the neighborhood and rescued pets. Hopefully they are doing it again.
Have a great weekend and enjoy the Labor day festivities where ever you are!
