Still Summer

Except for Monday morning, which was deliciously chilly, it is still hot and steamy here.  I never thought I would say this after last winter, but I am ready for some cold weather.  I am tomatoed and peached out.  Pete had a bumper crop of both this year.  We've canned and frozen a lot for the winter, and we have been eating tomatoes for breakfast, lunch and dinner -- no lie.  I'm looking forward to butternut squash.

I am working away on new fall and winter designs, some of which will premier next weekend -- September 26 & 27, 2015 -- at the Southern Adirondack Fiber Festival.  The festival is held at the Washington County Fairgrounds in Greenwich, NY, just east of Saratoga Springs.  As always, we hope to see you there!

I'm also battling an end-of-summer cold -- not too bad, but bad enough.  I wore myself out at my nephew's wedding last Saturday.  Too much partying for this aging hooker!  Clara caught the bride's bouquet -- and her long time boyfriend didn't seem to mind at all.  Maybe she will be next . . .

We had an abundance of tomatoes also and I've dehydrated and roasted tomatoes and we also had a bumper crop of cucumbers and I pickled like a fool..

I'm not a fan of heat or cold. I like a comfortable temperature and I'm looking forward to the beginning of fall. Not looking forward to winter either.

Sorry you got down with a cold. I hope it will not linger too long.
Good luck with your next sale.
