Back to reality

I think I gained a few pounds on my week off. That was not in the plan, but between eating our way through Austin and Carrot Cake for Hope's birthday it happened. I felt supremely lazy sitting on my couch watching the US gymnastics team last night. I kept making myself jump up during commercials to solder or sew a seam. I don't think I accomplished as much as I had hoped this past week, but I did do a lot. I'm not ready to go back to work.

Thankful that I froze those 5 lbs of Parker County Peaches! They are just as sweet and tender frozen as they were fresh.  Yum!

The colors in the backyard are hot just like the weather.
I don't know what variety of Zinnia this is, but it's the only one that has thrived for me this summer.  They are about 10-12 inches tall with tiny blooms.  I like anything miniature so I think these are really sweet.

I'm liking the color scheme that I'm using on my patio chairs. Backyard garden
