So, I'll just tell you about our weekend and show you what else we've been up to.
We harvested our beans from our little gnome garden/dining table centerpiece. Seven beans! Not too shabby.
Peonies are opening, more Telluridian friends passed through on other business but had time for a little visit. Always so, so great to see old friends. The familiarity and comfort of having shared history are really wonderful feelings.
Suckers are all the rage these days at our house. Jacob and Daddy just bought a small bag from the bulk section at Whole Foods. Tasty, even I'll admit it, even though chocolate is more my thing. And, as this picture demonstrates so well, someone is is need of a haircut.
We enjoyed a Memorial Day BBQ with some neighbours. Lots of fun and craziness. Fraser smoked a pork butt and salmon, people brought oh, so delicious salads and fruits. And I made some rhubarb tarts that looked nothing like the picture in the book but tasted delicious nonetheless. The oven also broke (before the tarts were cooked!). Thank goodness for good neighbours!
This is not our new cat but a friendly cat who comes around a lot these days. Jacob calls him Caramel.
