Homemade bagels from this wonderful baking book that I use a lot.
Homemade tomato sauce from this awesome blog that has inspired me (and countless others) beyond measure over the years. (More about that another time, perhaps?) And: yes the jars are empty because the tomato sauce is cooking. Ok? Use your powers of imagination to see the tomato sauce in the jars and you just saved me (and yourself) from yet another digital photo.
Homemade ball player who cracked her bat with a hit right after this shot was taken. Wow.
Oh, and guess what!? My kids are so very, very, very brilliant and artistic and funny and warm and generally delightful. Ohhhhh...I know it's a little immodest, or show-offy, or something, to mention such things. But, come on, don't all parents feel like that (most times) about their kids? I would hope so.
A 5-year-old (girl) who hit the ball so hard and spot on she cracked the bat? A little three-year-old outfielder yelling "I got it, I got it!" Brilliant. I tell you. Sheer Brilliance. I would love to say they got this sports "edge" from me, but not so. When I filled out my high school application and it asked what sports I participated in I wrote in the large space provided: "I hate all sports."
Another neato thing this weekend was: frozen watermelon spears which I didn't take a photo of cause I'm PMSish and therefore fully and totally flawed. (I'm actually somewhat flawed without the PMS but the flaws just don't bother me as much.)
My kids have no flaws and I have at least several on a very good day. That is how I see it. I am very honest here. You can always expect that from me. Isn't that nice to know?
As far as the "brevity" in this post goes. I guess I missed the mark. Trying to be more succinct in these August Break posts. Failing. See! A flaw.
