Good Morning

Just a bit of a catch up post...
Knitting: nothing new happening. Just working on some of the same projects from this post. I've been very good at not adding to my stagnant stash.
Quilting / sewing: I made a baby blanket for a friend to give as a gift. Otherwise not too much.
Summer fun: We're headed to a big mountain bike race this coming weekend, Kyle is competing and I'm cheering. Hopefully it won't be too hot & humid. **I just looked at the forecast and it's supposed to be REALLY nice! Yee Haw.

Casey: As you can see, he's having a great summer!

A New Pushie

Yesterday Kyle surprised me with a new bike! I LOVE it. It's a pretty green color and it has a super cool Fox shock and Juicy brakes - which apparently in the bike world is a good thing.
My New Gary Fisher
Earlier in the day I was going crazy over a 6 month old Weimaraner puppy that one of my patients brought in for me to see so I think he was trying to distract me from wanting a puppy :)

CSA is Fun

This past Saturday the CSA farm I support had an open house for all the CSA shareholders. I trekked out there with Splatgirl and boy, the people we split our share with. The farm had zucchini bowling and kohlrabi bocce ball set up, we took a tour of the fields on a trailer behind the old tractor, helped weed the peppers and eggplants and ate a potluck lunch. I made deviled eggs but managed to forget them on my way out the door so I've been eating an egg nearly every time I open the fridge. If you would like to see more photos of the farm visit you can go to my Flickr set.
Weeding Peppers
This is a photo of the group weeding the peppers. It went very fast with all the manpower that was there. I'm definitely glad I went and learned more about the farm I get all my delicious vegetables from!

Rotten Tomatoes

I'm pretty sure I know why this happened to these homegrown tomatoes but I want to ask all of you, has this ever happened to your tomatoes?

Tonight we went to Thursday Night Lights at the local Velodrome. Tonight was especially fun because there was a MN Thunder soccer game in the stadium you can see behind the velodrome and we could hear the crowd cheer every time the Thunder scored. I can't wait to watch these types of events during the Olympics!

Trio of Toes

Pedicure #2 - 2008 *No Way Jose - China Glaze* (My toes are on the bottom of the photo)
I took my nieces & my mom for their 1st pedicures, we all had a great time. The little girls opted for flowers, I went for the plain toes. I'm way behind in blogging...this photo was taken almost 2 weeks ago and my toes are about ready for another pedi.

I hope everyone is having a fabulous Independence Day weekend!
