Paul left this morning on a trip to the midwest to visit his folks leaving just Finn and I for the weekend. (The big kids are with their other parents this weekend.) Shortly after he left this morning, I found a beautiful surprise waiting for me on our bed: two books that I have been seriously desiring for the last few months. Just flipping through them today has been a wonderful, relaxing experience, and I haven't even made anything from them yet.
Finn and I visited some friends this morning.
And I was able to help provide a tiny bit of guidance for making a felt bluebird to sit inside Grady's recycled sweater robot's tummy.
This afternoon, Finn and I picked our first official harvest from the garden. Our garden isn't overly large, but we're grateful for the opportunity to get some fresh veggies from our backyard. We cooked the zucchini immediately for dinner. :)
We didn't actually do Saturday Lunch today because we were out running around. So it is Saturday dinner this week! We found some amazing Cherokee Purple tomatoes, which is one of my favorite varieties even if it is ugly, bell peppers, fresh corn, and red garlic to cook with our zucchini.
I think Finn enjoyed the corn almost as much as I did! He was so serious about nibbling every kernel.
