Having a great August :-)

Sunday, August 26, 2012

Hi all, I hope that you are all having a great August :-)

My sister's family from Virginia came out for two weeks and we managed to get trip up to our family cabin in El Dorado County; got to take them up to Silver Lake to swim in the potholes -they loved dead man's hole LOL!! Then there was boating and swimming at Silver Lake as well. I love hot august days and swimming or just getting wet in our cold sierra lakes.

My two favorite cousins from Arizona came up to Sacramento for the 1st time to visit. We thoroughly enjoyed a great walk in Old Sacramento followed by dinner on the river.

My vegie garden is finally starting to produce (I had to plant things late this year). So have happily been weeding and chatting with my fellow community gardeners, ahhhhhh, there's nothing like a home grown tomato.

Anyway, I was wondering what you all have been doing this month.

Ciao for now,

Mim

    So good to see you again. Indeed August is a great month. I have not been doing much sparkin'... But have been doing some fun things.

Today I made Gazpacho from some wonderful California tomatoes I found at the produce shop and love the freshness for an afternoon snack.

Happy gardening my friend.

    Took my grandson & his friend camping up in the Gold Lakes country (I should blog about that, huh?) Other than that, just trying to keep up with everything. Job hunting, trying to sell stuff on line, keep the yard & garden from dying in the heat, etc. It's been a great August -- except for the heat.

    Glad to see you're having such a good August! I've been busy at work and running just for the sake of running.

Hope your garden produces a bounty for you!
