Indian summer lazy Sunday dinner.

Strawberries from the front slope!

Nail Lacquer from butter LONDON in "Lovely Jubbly".  Nordstrom's $14.  In case you were wondering.



(My 1st )Vegetarian Lasagna with Zucchini.  Very cheap and easy.

Pickled sweet peppers stuffed with Chevre and drizzled with a balsamic glaze.  I stole the idea from Romano's Macaroni Grill.

A fluffy cat in 90 degree heat.  Sprawled out is the way to be.

Zach has been wearing his new hat everywhere!
Nothing is very new on our end, just enjoying (enduring) the hotter weather we've been getting.  Only one or two nights so far have even been warm, but daytime temperatures in the high 80's and 90's far exceed anything Portlanders are used to.  I'm still very interested in the growing seasons here.  June-bearing strawberries are just now coming into their own.  Our neighbors have some what I'd call "Easter" Lillies blooming in her front yard.  My tomatoes are still very green, except one or two very tiny ones.

Playing games on the porch with friends to beat the heat is very fashionable.  It's true, we really do live in the 1890's here.
