Labor Day

Yes, I know this is late.

Katie, Lauren and I spent our Labor Day weekend at our own annual Tomato Fest.DSC03375DSC03376DSC03377DSC03378

This year we canned tomatoes and sauce.  The sauce takes forever!

Lauren had so much '”fun” she bought 8 more bushels of tomatoes and did her own canning.  If I am nice to her, she might let me have some.  Yum!

Two interesting things occurred last weekend.

The fun thing was my fortieth (Yes, that is 40th!) high school reunion.  I was a little apprehensive about going but I had a great time.  I thought we all looked pretty good after all these years.


Below is my very, very best friend Paula and her husband, Richard. I met her my very first day. I was new at school (as a junior) and that dreaded time came I had to choose a seat to eat my lunch.  I looked around the cafeteria-her table was laughing the loudest so I sat there.  It was one of my best decisions!


The second thing that happened was not so great.  A storm blew through on Saturday and our neighbor’s tree fell down on our pool fence.


(That is Buddy doing some investigating)

Luckily my husband and Dave were able to fix the fence so things are back to normal.

It’s Done!

And we are quite pleased with the results!

I never realized just how hard it was to gut a room an completely rebuild it (OK-the shower stayed).  I am not a good decision maker normally, so picking out everything was a little bit daunting.  But it is done.  Yay!!
