Kitchen teaser

Here's Lydia on the kitchen counter, which gives you a little preview of the orange.  It's still not done, but I did get a chance to paint a little today.  I also taught the boys how to sew today.  They did really well.  They were making presents for their cousins, so I will keep their project a surprise for now.
Tomatoes are starting to roll in from the garden.  Right now I have more than Lydia and I can eat but not enough for a whole batch for canning.  It won't be much longer, though, and tomatoes should be popping out all over!  I hope to make it to the farm soon to pick a bunch of fruit (for jam, freezing, sauces, etc). 
Oh, and it turns out that some of the peppers I planted have a bit of a kick to them.  It's not tons, more like a poblano or some other milder chile, but I thought they were bells, so it was a surprise.  It made the fajitas last night have a bit more heat than expected (which was not a bad thing).


  1. LooooOOOOooove the orange! Lydia looks so sweet! :)

  2. Thanks! Lydia was actually yelling "nurse" at me, and this was snapped just before she started screaming!

  3. Love it! Can't wait to see it in person. ;) The boys and I WILL make it there sometime. Promise! Love ya!

  4. What a cute you have me thinking I want to paint our kitchen!! We need a little more color around here;) I can just picture her, "Nurse!!" She is too cute and I am missing all of you!!

  5. We miss you, too. Can't wait to see you at the Lake!
