September, Already?

It is hard to believe that it is already September.  Time is moving too fast.  When I was 10, 10 years seemed like an eternity.  Now, 10 years ago seems like yesterday.

Me (about 11) and Mark (about 6)

This morning I received an e-mail from an on-line service provider (for my business) that was down Thursday-Saturday.  Today’s e-mail stated they are working again.  Great… they get it working on Sunday.  (It was bad enough that it was down all that time, now they get it working on a Sunday morning the day before a national holiday.)

Sisters Butters and Killen were our dinner guests tonight.  I made cashew chicken, but instead of celery I used dellicata squash.  It actually worked quite well.  But, dessert was the best.

I made a cake with peaches and a whipped cream frosting.  It was one of those desserts that you didn’t feel guilty about having seconds.  It tasted rich but felt light.

Elizabethe teased saying we will never see this cake again.  (Implying that I won’t ever make it again.)  So, I indulged her by taking about how next time I’ll try using apples, or maybe pears.  (That’s exactly what she was implying… I’d change it up so much that it will be entirely different next time.)  That said, I’m sure I’ll make this again.  We’ve got LOTS of canned peaches that need to be used.

Tomorrow’s Labor Day.  One thing I miss about working for someone else is having holidays.  One thing I don’t miss is working for someone else.

It’s Starting to Look Like Spring

It is starting to look like spring.  Spring is a bit late this year.  Last year, by this time, I was mowing the lawn.  This year, things are just starting to perk up.

Sisters Aielo and Butters were our dinner guests tonight.  They worked at the Smith Farm, so we had a late dinner.  I prepared some meatball Florentine for them, with some peach-pineapple upside-down cake for dessert.

Tomorrow’s going to be a busy day.  I plan to finish cleaning the front of the studio.  Uhg.  I hate doing that, but things get cluttered, dust collects, and it needs to get done.
