August is Almost Over!

Can you believe that August is just about finished and September is looming right around the corner. Now September is my darling daughter and my sweetie-pie granddaugther's birthday, within two days of each other so it's always a very happy month. I'm just completely amazed as to where August went and how fast it got there!

Our garden has produced such delicious tomatoes and cucumbers. The green peppers didn't fare so well though for some odd reason. On the other hand the herbs grew beautifully.....peppermint, basil, thyme, parsley, and chives. I whipped up a cheese omelet for myself and my husband this morning and put some chives in and a side of sliced tomatoes which is my very all time favorite. I love having omelets with a ripe, summer time tomatoes.....I should have taken a picture because it looked mighty tasty (and it was, LOL).


Instead, I'll leave you with a picture of the banana chocolate chip muffins I made with milk and white chocolate chips. They were deliciouso, if I do say so myself. The trouble was trying not to eat too many which was quickly remedied when 3 of my sons came over at the same time and pretty well wiped them out. No worries about weight gain here!
Till next time, dear readers, knit on, be happy and take it one day at a time....the present is all we have so let's enjoy it.
P.S. Sorry for the lack of knitterly pictures or the current status of my shawl.....next time for sure.

Laura,
your photos are beautiful and those muffins look so delicious! It would be difficult to resist eating more than one. Good thing your sons helped out :).

Laura, Thanks for visiting my blog, and of course I would be honored if you identified my blog as a favorite! I have been lax of late - trying to get my sweater completed for the next post. LOL - probably not a good idea!

Thanks for your garden update. We have enjoyed a very bountiful garden this year too. I just mentioned to my DH tonight, that we would surely miss the fresh produce when the frosts come.

Your flower is lovely, and the muffins - look oh so good. Isn't it wonderful when sons come and gobble homebaked goodies all up!!!

Later - Kathy in iowa
