I know, I know

It's been a couple of weeks. I've been slacking, even though I keep thinking about blogging. Nothing exciting has happened over the last couple of weeks. It's nice that everything is flowing along.

I finished my Lady Grey. I love this sweater!! I like all of the sweaters I have made, even if they fit me funny. This one though I really love, which is why I am making another one.

Monday we took a trip to the cardiologist for John's yearly checkup. All the tests show that his heart is doing good. Possibly even better than last year. If you remember, last year we had a minor freakage because his murmur had become audible. The doctor said J could go for 3-4 years in between check ups. Woohoo! Friday we see Kim's GI doc again and since she isn't feeling better we are going to push for some other tests.

Tonight we are off to the state fair to see Garrison Keillor and his Rhubard Tour.

My beer as of today. It is bubbling along nicely. :)

Today's Scoop from the market

Fresh and local strawberries and blueberries.

Squash for grilling with onions, mushrooms, and sausage. YUM!

Maryhill Peaches

Maryhill Nectarines
The peaches taste have a hint of coconut.

Yummy dessert.

A Day in Pictures

With a few captions.

A batch of beer made just this morning. It will sit in this fermenter for about 3-4 weeks. This beer will be for my birthday. It is a dark porter and will need a good name. :)

I got a great book in the mail today and we made pretzels from it.

Last, but not least, cinnamon rolls for tomorrow morning or tonight's dessert.
