5 things...

Well, I thought I would be here more once the boys went back to school. That's not happening, but the house is sure getting a good dousing of all the crud that accumulated over the summer. Today is supposed to be beautiful, so I'm going to pop on some music and get to work outside.

1. I'm planning on cutting back the garden today and picking what's left of the tomatoes so they can ripen before the frost arrives. It was 44 degrees when I got up today!

2. Matt ran for vice-president of his class. He lost, but he had a taste of the political process. He was recruited to be on a "ticket" which probably didn't have the best choices available. He didn't really want to win, just take votes away from the popular choice. It failed, she won.

3. The above picture is not the one I wanted to upload, but I'm too lazy to redo. We had a beautiful sunset on Friday and this is my attempt to record it, with my iphone, as I was driving. Yeah, not a good idea.

4. We went to my mom's on Sunday to celebrate her 70th birthday. The whole family bought her an ipad. I'm in love with it...and so is she. I think she sat for hours after we left personalizing it and adding apps. It was the perfect gift!

5. We started watching "Boardwalk Empire" the other night on HBO. Not sure about it yet? Anyone else watch it and have opinions?
Have a great week everyone!

Great photos and I'm sort of enjoying Boardwalk Empire.

I have not heard of that show.
Tried to watch Hawaii 5 O last night. Boring.
Gave up half way through.

Today is a bonus day off and I am going to stay close to home and get rid of stuff and continue to reorganize.

Why is it that the promise of back to school freedom turns into the scariness of back to school volunteering that I forget each and every year...?! Inundated, I tell you.

Oh what a wonderful 70th gift, I should think she is over the moon.

Sunset picture is incredible and I know just what you mean about it taking a while to get the house back into order, mine is slowly getting under control again.

i love your new header, jane!
it's amazing once they are back in school, you think you'll have all this spare time but i've managed to fill my days with a lot of work around the house.

I love your header! We are having nights in the 30's now but I can't yet bear to admit defeat on the garden. Until it freezes I shall have hope!

Stunning black and white image of the waterfowl!
