Weekend pleasures...

We love the produce at

Paytner's Market.

Picked from their own farm, they are just up the road for us.

These are simply the best days of summer.



It's Friday....

Here are a few photos of my week!

The weather is just perfect, sunny, warm and just a hint of Fall

with the Virgina Creeper turning a

stunning red.

Purple plums, fresh mint as well the last of the petunias.

Hard to believe it becomes Fall next week.

Out for a little retail therapy.
(None came home with me)
Up to Carmelis Farm for some goat cheese.
It was another wonderful week!



Texting with Claire..

For those of you who know me,

you know I love technology.

I give iPad lessons to my knitting buddies in Arizona.

If I have a problem, I FaceTime Christa, then we both go on our Mac' s,

have our IPad's, IPods, or IPhones at hand to solve it and help each other out.

If I am really stuck I call in my big gun,

my son, Jeremy.

He set up his school's Digital Immersion Program.

Yesterday, Claire said to me, "Good bye Oma,

I will text you right away."

This is what she sent..not bad for a little girl who is 3 years 9 months old.




I send her cards in the mail as well.

My little one has learned to embrace

all this wonderful technology and I am glad I know how to keep up.

We use a program call Emoji, which makes these little characters.

(Emoji (絵文字 or えもじ; Japanese pronunciation: [emodʑi]) are the ideograms or smileys used in Japanese electronic messages and webpages, the use of which is spreading outside Japan. Originally meaning pictograph, the word emoji literally means "picture" (e) + "character" (moji).)


Fall must be around the corner....

The pumpkins, squash, apples, pears and all the goodness of fall

is on full display at the farmers market.

It is a thing of beauty!
