Lovin' Life!

Today has been a WONDERFUL day and it's only 1:30! =) Here's why my day is so great....

1. The summer school kiddos were wonderful. We had a fun day and one little boy said to me, "I hope you're my teacher next year in 3rd grade!".. I didn't have the heart to tell him it wasn't happening.

2. The garden is REALLY growing! Check it out...

The garden from afar....
Heirloom tomatoes that have just shot up in the past few days. The guy at the farmer's market said these are really picky and difficult to grow. I think we've done well so far!
Check out this happy pair! These are the regular tomatoes. You can't tell in the picture, but they are HUGE! Can't wait for them to change color.
And there's one of the cukes. Again, the picture doesn't do it justice. It's about 5 inches long.
And there's the squash! We're going to have a lot of squash. They just keep flowering and growing!

3. I just made a loaf of semi-homemade bread... I thawed the dough, let it rise, and baked away! It smells just like Grandma's house. In fact, when I came in from taking the pictures of the garden... I smiled to myself because it smelled just like her house does when she makes homemade bread AND I had sunless tanner on, so it smelled like sun tan lotion... so it REALLY smelled like Grandma's Florida house when she would bake bread. YUMMY!
Hope your day is just as great! =)
