well whaddya know...

Future cantaloupes, I hope.
It's almost 10am and I am still in my pj's. Can you say lazy?

Our first week back to school was good. We all made it through in one piece. I had a good initiation at my new job as Health Clerk in an elementary school. As I walked up to the school to report for my first day, I am not even in the front office doorway yet, purse and tote bag still in hand, and here comes a little girl holding a garbage can she had just thrown up into. Welcome to your first day! It was laughable...definitely.

I have some things to do today...drop a few bags at the thrift shop, pop by the pet store, make a run for some fresh peaches and strawberries before they're no longer available and, as always, laundry.

I still need to figure out what to make for dinner. I may make a chicken recipe I saw on Pinterest and serve it with a side of, what else? Zucchini!

We have grown quite a bit of zucchini this summer. I'm enjoying it while I can because the plants are beginning to look powdery with mildew. It'll be time to pull them soon.

The green beans are dying back and lots of the pods are dried up. I wish I could remember what type of beans I grew because I'd like to save the seeds to plant next summer. I'm just not sure if they're heirloom or not...seriously need to get on that darn garden journal I keep threatening to put together. Or get serious about only planting heirlooms.

I gotta say though, we are not having good luck with our heirloom tomatoes. Anything we plant that is heirloom just doesn't produce much, if at all. Some of them haven't produced one single tomato. Literally. It's frustrating really. We really must find some productive heirlooms. Suggestions are welcome...:)

Anyway...we are sticking close to home today. Readjusting to our new schedule. Trying to stay out of the heat. It's a sad day when you are happy that it has cooled to 98 degrees.
