This weekend we :
  • Made a lemon-zucchini-goat cheese-pizza using this recipe and ate it all up. (I didn't even take a picture!) I think Friday nights should be pizza nights from now on.
  • Saw Toy Story 3 which made me think back to all of my favorite toys from childhood - a stuffed cat I called Mama Cat and her three baby kittens: Lisa, Tommy and Sara; a ballerina doll with long hair made of yarn. I learned to braid by practicing on her; my etch-a-sketch, lite brite, troll dolls and magna doodle.
  • Got up at 8 a.m. Saturday to run errands, then worked on the deck all day long. We had some great help!

Nicole and Patrick (who was looking at me with a wary eye)

Patrick wanted to help!

  • Had half of the rails up by the end of Saturday. Then Chris and I went to a goodbye party for our friends Eric and Luisa who are heading to New York.

  • Picked 14 pounds of blackberries, 2 pounds blueberries and a peck of peaches.


  • Canned 8 jars of blackberry jam.

  • Nailed many, many boards until ... the deck was 95 percent complete!

What a handsome general contractor!

Overall, it was a busy, happy weekend. Most members of this household are tuckered out!
