So in an effort to tame the basil plants that are threatening to consume my house, I decided to pick a bunch of leaves and give them to people whether they want it or not. As I started pulling I look over and notice something AMAZING:
Against all odds, this one brave zucchini fought for survival against tube boring bugs and general neglect.
After I found out about the borers, I gave up on the squash. It’s an Autumn MIRACLE!
That is my 20 oz water bottle next to it. I have lots of plans for this guy!
In a sad bit of news, my omelet pan has officially met its demise.
I guess 2-3x a day use (and overuse of cooking spray) finally did it in.
Last night I babysat Giada and Elise so Ivy and her husband Bryan could go see the Red Sox. Before heading there I stopped at the BFF’s for a quick cup o’Joe and some chit chat.
Cute family pic. Minus Parker, he and Peyton were busy arguing over some toy. Needless to say, there wasn’t much chit-chatting to be had as we spent most of our time reffing the older kids. Oh well.
The kids had a blast at Ivy’s.
She set up a tent for the ‘slumber party’ and the girls spent a large portion of the evening trying to enforce the ‘No Boys Allowed’ rule. Poor Reese. He did manage to get in there, but it wasn’t pretty:
Nice shiner huh?
No! I’m kidding! He ran into the dishwasher door just as I was opening it. He took it like a champ, but wouldn’t let me ice it.
Alright, I’m off to do a 5k on the treadmill. Now that I know the motor is kinda slow, I’m gonna crank up the speed a bit and see where I get after 28 minutes. Fingers crossed!
I also have some plans for the peanut flour today. If all goes well I’ll post it later!! 🙂
