We celebrated Luke's 32nd birthday a little over a week ago and went out to eat at the "Elephant Bar", which is one of our favorite restaurants. We had a great time. September is loaded with birthdays in our family, and to those of my very precious family members who we were/are not able to celebrate with yet… Happy Birthday… we're looking forward to catching up soon!
Luke and I have been doing some cooking in the kitchen together, and having a great time. I asked him if I could post some of his cooking and recipes; and I was delighted to get to make some homemade ketchup with him this week, as well as a delicious French Apple Custard cake, all of which I will post about soon.
We are feeling that Colorado weather at work, with all of its extremes; we had 35 degrees one day last week, and in the 90's this week, all of which has kept us between sweaters and warm socks, to flip flops and shorts within a very short period of time. As I mentioned earlier, we have had that crazy virus that has caused us to cough for more than 2 weeks. Perhaps the extreme changes in weather contribute. So I have pulled out all of our favorite remedies (and a few more that we have added to our list) and we are taking every last thing in triplicate. I am thinking to be healthy and strong and have my immune system well defended by the time I go traveling.
Now for those of you who have read this far, and have been wondering what in the world is the picture I have on my header? I will tell you at last. It is a Pinocchio Eggplant. Well at least that is what Luke and Steve and I have called it. It grew this way. Isn't it strange? Luke bought it at one of the Farm stores this week. It is indeed a marvel. I would like to make up some sort of headline for it, because it seems to deserve it… but I am too foggy headed today...so it will have to do as is…until another time.
Hope you all are staying well, and enjoying some lovely Fall days.
Have a great week everyone.
