Why the Happy Dance? Because I finally, finally, finally finished this book. My sister, Judy, and I have been doing a long-distance book discussion with this book since February (with quite a few breaks for sanity). I read the last word last night, finished 718 pages, and I never want to read it again!
Both the tomato and the basil are from my garden. Letha, at Dr. McDougall's Discussion Board, has started a Summer Salad Photo Challenge. Here is one of my entries. Isn't it pretty? My poor garden has suffered terribly with the summer heat so I am especially proud of this. Check out the other beautiful photos on the challenge thread!
The white dish will be on the dinner table frequently, filled with a colorful assortment of raw fruits and/or veggies. The bright fabric under the dish is a fish-patterned shower curtain. It will be used in John's bathroom for home-sale-staging. Not in the immediate future, but I am planning ahead to the day we get the h*ll out of this place!
