Last... few... veggies....

Doesn't Pop's garden know it's nearly OCTOBER?

Look:  *I* was cold out there today picking tomatoes and carrots and jalapenos, oh my!   Those poor wee cherry tomatoes were shivering on the vines --  and yet?  still growing.  Plenty of green ones, and every few days when I go out to steal some bounty from the garden, there are tons of new ripe cherry tomatoes.  On a related note, would anyone like a bunch of cherry tomatoes?   My, but they're prolific.

And The Boy, when he was done practicing the piano at Grandma & Grandpa's, discovered a lone little cantaloupe hiding in the leaves.  We haven't cracked it open yet, but I warned him it's a bit late for melon and it likely isn't edible.  He's gonna give it the ol' college try, though.   Brave lad.

Heckofa game

Bob says he's sorry for not doing anything blog-worthy on the house for months.  Well, except procure a twisty log post  ... and plant oak trees around the property ...    The slacker.   *eye-roll*

D'you want the real scoop as to what he's been doing?  Besides, you know, working for a living?


That's right, baby:  we were at the Buffalo Bills home opener this weekend to watch them spank the KC Chiefs!   Wooo!

First Day of School

Today is the first day of school for most schools in the North Country, including the one our kids go to.  And today was the first day of Kindergarten for The Girl.

Princess Cranks-a-lot not wanting her picture taken on the first day of school.

When I got home from work today I asked her how her first day went....   which, apparently was great except for a huge fit of crying over a newly loose tooth, since "IT BLEEDED!!"  


I was just starting to handle my baby going to Kindergarten, and now she's going to lose a tooth too?   I'm not cut out for this parenthood stuff.  It's too rough.  Let me off the bus.

In other news, they tell me The Boy is now a 6th grader.  At least that's what it sounds like with my head buried in the sand.
