That bridge group sounds wonderful. I haven't played for years. I'm sure they will enjoy your lunch.
I took Gidget to the groomer. Now she has pink and burgundy bows in her ears and pink toenails. After we were through there I decided to go over to a produce stand near Packwood. Packwood is about 25 miles south of our house and the produce stand is a few miles further. I had no one to help me today and the man that works there noticed my distress and asked why I was alone. He told me from now on to pull my car right up to the produce tent.
I got four zucchini, 3 green and 1 yellow, 3 red bell peppers, 2 yellow bell peppers. another sweet pepper, I can't remember its name, but it looks similar to a jalapeņo. I also got four beautiful tomatoes, (the last time I got some there they were extremely flavorful) and some apples, a cabbage, 2 ears of corn, and a cantaloupe. Now when I go grocery shopping I will know what I already have in the kitchen I already know I need spinach, sweet potatoes, mushrooms and celery. I like it when I know what I need. This is much better than when I was trying to keep track of what my caregiver was using.
My peaches in the dehydrator are drying nicely and those in the oven are a bit behind. Someone turned off the oven. I caught it soon enough that I won't loose those peaches. I want to get some pears to dry too. I should get a case of apples too, Carol likes my apple butter.
After reading the article that said to preserve all the food we can I am really getting with it. I know the prices will be going up. Today I heard on Public Radio that the Chinese get most of their corn and soy from the US. That could pose a further problem for those of us who like to eat. I just wish I'd been in the space to get started earlier on preserving everything that passes by me.
I'll talk with you all later,

It was foggy this morning but that burned off to sunshine and blue skies. It's almost 70.
DH and I went to Home Depot in preparation for some errands around the house. DS#1 is going to help and will probably do a lot of the ladder work. We had to buy a new 6' ladder because DH liked to leave the old one in the carport where the wind blows it over and it got crunched. I hear the new one will be stored in the shed
Some of my TOPS group are going to bring sack lunches to bring to the park after the meeting. We waited until school started because the school children's summer lunch program takes place at the park. I'm going to make some iced tea to bring along.
Patty, that snowman scarf is sure cute!
Sarah, It seems like the heat finally leaves and then for some places the really cold and snow comes fast on it's heels. Hard to imagine right now with the sun shining. When I used to take the light rail home from work (about 45 minute commute) on the horrible, hot days I would imagine everything cold I could think of - ice cubes, snow, snow-capped mountains- polar bears.
Ann, When my sister was having cancer treatment she assumed the labs would cover a lot of things but turned out her thyroid was way out of whack and that was something the GP needed to take care of. Sounds like you'll have a great time with your bridge group tomorrow.
Good Afternoon, We don't seem to have a breeze today so that will make it seem hotter. I've been getting things ready for tomorrows luncheon. I hope it cools down. I got the chicken cooked for the salad, got the angel food cake baked for 1/3 of that dessert recipe. I've went to the health food/produce store to get some green onions, grape tomatoes, and a few other things. I'll cut up the green onions later. I have cut up one red bell pepper and celery.
Yesterday was a lazy day but we did eat out and now I don't have a clue what easy thing to fix for supper. My freezer ready meals are all soups. As sure as I fix a tuna salad I'll find out DH made tuna sandwiches for he and DS when he went to the shop this morning.
My GP office called for me to make an app't to see her. I had lab work done two weeks ago and this is the first I've heard from them. I didn't think she was going to see me for a while since I'm seeing the cancer doctor. Of course after they call to make me an app't they have to squeeze me in. That means sit and wait.
How was your weekend? I hope it was a good one. I got some shopping done, so that was good. Nothing exciting other than eating hamburger is like eating steak anymore. Over $5 a pound here! Then I read an article online about how the price of groceries is going to skyrocket! Unreal. I thought they had already skyrocketed!!
I also saw on the news about the heat in the midwest. At least I think that is what they were saying, I as reading and the tv was on mute. I just happened to look up and I saw the midwest was all red.
Heather I hope your family is feeling much better.
Patty I love the new pieces on your site.
Water----yes Food Plan--yes Moving--some
Not much going on here. I'm going to work on my kitchen floor.
