A new pasta recipe.

This not only smelled delicious, it tasted just as good.  Pasta and peas tossed with a mixture of creme friache, garlic, chives, and parmesean.  Yummy!

The neighborhood at dusk.

This is what you get with a new camera on a tripod set with a 13 second shutter speed and one daughter on roller skates, the other on a bicycle.  Kinda fun . . .

Shucking corn is a great time.

As long as Maddie is the one doing all of the shucking.

Tag, you're it!

Maddie and Jordan's friend, Kern, have had this game of tag going since Jordan's birthday party.  She wrote him a note, he wrote one back, she texted him, he tagged her in the car when she wasn't looking, she posted this sign in his yard while he was napping . . . Kern, you're it!

Strawberry thief.

Not only do the squirrels get into our garden and steal the strawberries, but they also climb onto the ledge of the kitchen window so we can watch them eat the berries.

My first non-halloween garment

in many years.  Jordan is re-working Hamlet and setting the play during the 30's.  When she presents to her drama class she will wear this dress - a pattern matched to the 1930's style, made from reproduction feed sack cloth.  Very similar to the dresses made and worn by women and girls during that time.

Helping with a CAS goal.

Aditi set a CAS (Community and Service) goal to make a skirt.  I showed her how to make a simple elastic waistband skirt.  She did a great job and did it very quickly.

Trees at the mall.

I'm sure these are dogwoods - they are so beautiful.  I love how the petals are laying so flat on this flower.  Maddie insisted we go to the mall (to Build-a-Bear) while Aili and Jordan were at driver's ed.
