Seeing Red

I woke up this morning to the smell of burning pop-tarts.

Which is crazy to begin with because I never buy pop-tarts, but it's
a) the end of summer and
b) I had a carload of boys with me when I ran in to get milk and came out with $80 worth of things our dentist is going to love us for later on.


But back to the burning's not a smell you want to wake up to. Not that the person who was making them noticed...he was too busy watching the Suite Life of Weirdo Boys. Or whatever it is called.

But I noticed and it really wasn't his fault. Our cute little red toaster seems to be wanting to retire from our house. How sad is that?

Today was a rather quiet day at home for all of us, which was much needed. Actually only most of us were quiet, as there is one among us who is grounded and tried (successfully at times) to make us all miserable on our rather peaceful day.

But, in the end, it was all ok.


Supper tonight was one of my favorite summer meals...grilled teriyaki chicken sandwiches topped with grilled pineapple, corn on the cob and even more panzanella. My garden is on it's last legs...I am going to pull all the remaining plants this week and do my autumn planting, though I'm not quite sure what that will be yet.

Definitely more tomatoes!



  1. Oh sure, side with the youngest child!

  2. Its the Suite Life of Zack and Cody and its not weird!

  3. OK, Rachel...don't you think they are just a 'little bit' weird??? And whiney??
