Saturday 07.29.17 and Sunday 07.30.17

This weekend was wonderful!  John and I had such a great weekend!  Saturday started out going to a new diner for breakfast, then on to the Farmer's Market!  We found so many good veggies and fruit.  We bought green beans, potatoes, corn on the cob, Dragon Fruit, peaches, sourdough bread, yellow squash, lettuce, blackberries, heirloom tomatoes, 2 succulent plants and flowers, of course flowers!  Here a few photos of the things we bought:

The biggest blackberries I have ever seen!

Dragon Fruit by itself again

So when Jenny and the boys arrived for a visit on Saturday afternoon, Jenny brought figs, blueberries and kiwi.  We made my first every smoothie with Dragon Fruit, figs, blueberries, banana and kiwi.  It was so good!  We put it in a bowl instead of a glass.  It was so good as you can see!

Jenny and the boys stayed for dinner.  I made pork chops with apples and onions, corn on the cob and green beans with the new potatoes.  Everything was so good.  After Dinner Jack and I talked about seeing if the potatoes we planted in the Spring were ready yet.  We had alot of ran for about 5 days a while ago and I was so afraid they had rotted.  He and I dug them up and to our surprise there was a bowl full.  Here are some photos of our potato adventure:

We had such  a good time!

Today was a lazy one for John and I.  I slept until 9:00, that is very unusual for me!  Then we had breakfast on trays in our room and watched HGTV and DIY for a bit.  Next thing you know I am waking up and it is 1:00!!!  John had fallen asleep after he finished his breakfast too!!  I guess we needed the sleep after our rather busy day yesterday!  The rest of the day I read my current book, Kiss Carlo by Adriana Trigiani.  Love this book so far!!  I had another smoothie!  Had leftover Chinese for dinner and just chilled out.  That is my kind of day!  The weather here has been beautiful-no humidity and a nice breeze all day!

I hope you all had a good one!

Fun Summer

This summer has been really fun!  It has been a hot one, but bearable.  During the 4th of July weekend we went up to NJ to visit my Mom.  We got to see everyone, family and friends!  Then the next Friday we left to go to Wrightsville Beach with Jenny and the boys.  Owen's 6th birthday was that next Tuesday and we promised him a weekend at the Beach!  We went to the beach, the aquarium, the pool and out to dinner.  The boys really enjoyed themselves making sandcastles and playing in the water.  Here is a picture of what I think sums up the whole trip!

These boys have stolen our hearts since the day they were born! 

My flower gardens are pretty much done.  All the daylilies are done and the roses are just starting to pick up again.  Once it gets so hot, the flowers slow way down.

I hope everyone is having an awesome summer!!
