A Sunny , Fun Monday

Today was Jillian's first day of summer day camp, so Ethan and I got to have another long day together. One of our most fun things was to water the pots and then check the veggie garden. While there I peered into the weedy strawberry patch and was surprised to find TONS of lovely red ripe strawberries hiding in there!
So we did some weeding and some picking and then some yummy snacking!!
We'll do some more each day this week, so that will be fun. The sunny weather is really helping my lettuce and tomatoes and it looks like a banner year for zucchini, but then, when isn't it??
Anyone paying any attention to the Letterman/Palin "drama"? I wish that she would just go away. Go home, take care of your family, your constituents Sarah. He made a bad joke, he apologized and she is running with it, because it keeps the camera on her. Her poor kids.
I admit to being a Bachelorette follower. It feels like she is a neighbor since she lives just across the border from me, and I am only 4 miles from the Canadian border. Right now I'm rooting for Ed, Kiptyn (what kind of name is that?) and Reid, the guy who looks like Chandler Bing. And Ed looks like Denny Ducaine!!! I never thought I would be a reality TV fan, but I am! Lynn and I watch Survivor together. I LOVE So You Think You Can Dance, Amazing Race and right now Next Food Network Star. Again, happy happy happy with my DVR. I would give up many other conveniences around here before I would give that up!

I love the strawberry picker's face...adorable. And I confess, I watch the Bachelorette, too..and my votes are the same AND I'm from Alaska and all of my family in Juneau is anti-Palin because of the horrendous policy making or lack there of, in our capitol city. She 'visits' us...capitol city, a couple of times a year ontop of other offenses. A major ladies' group named her as a woman of the year nominee...she didn't show up nor write them back. Forgive me, you got me going!!!! Politics...grrrr.

Ethan looks as though he is really enjoying the strawberries. Great picture. I'm not a Palin fan and like you, I wish she would let it go. I don't what I would do without my DVR. Before we got ours we missed out on so many programs because of our work schedules. We're up at 4am which doesn't lend itself to staying up and watching TV at night. Finally, I don't know who I'm rooting for on The Next Top Chef yet but I can't wait for next week's episode.
