It was a hot weekend, so all outdoor fun was enjoyed early in the day.


Every time I went outside, it seemed, I had to beware of webs. There was much flailing in the early mornings.


Before it got too hot Sunday, I made Lemon Blueberry Squares. Mmmm. When I was cutting them up, my knife popped a few of the berries and they decorated my clothes quite purpily.

Saturday morning we went to Alpenrose Dairy to watch some of the Girls’ Softball World Series. I cheered for Burbank, CA (I lived there for several years).

Yesterday my son and I rode our bikes around the neighborhood – that was nice, since I don’t think I’ve been on Big Blue with the Fat Frank tires all year. First it was the rainpocalypse - I don’t like riding in the rain. Then I was either busy, traveling, or sick. So it felt nice to pedal and ring my little bell at slow cats.

I've been reading lots of great books - reviews to come!

And I was honored to find that the author of one of my very FAVORITE upcoming books - Stephanie Perkins - ANNA AND THE FRENCH KISS - devoted an entire blog post to me yesterday on her charming blog! You can find it here.

Okay, gotta run to work!

Those lemon blueberry squares look divine.

Thank you! They tasted pretty good ... I took most of them to work, and they were a hit. :-)

It was a cold weekend for us. Where is my summer?

Those Lemon Blueberry Squares look awesome! Mmm! (Worth the dye job on your clothes? ;) )

And yay to happy stuff!

We'll be back to chilly and gray any minute, too, I'm sure ...

The spiders are INSANE this summer. Saturday evening I almost walked through 2 webs just trying to get to my front door. My neighbor asked if I needed help--he probably thought I was having a seizure.

That blueberry bar looks like it could be a pic in a cookbook. Yum!

Off to read Stephanie Perkins' blog...

How's the self-imposed deadline coming?

So far so good on the deadline...starting the next-to-last chapter (I think) this week. If I get it done this week, too, then I'll be pretty well on track (and ready to hoist a glass by 9/7!) :)
