menu plan monday ~ august 24, 2009

Yesterday, company came over to visit for a few days. A dear friend I haven’t seen in probably 25 years. It is so good to see her again, to reminisce about college days, compare time lines of our lives since then, etc. We’re having a wonderful time. She’ll be here until tomorrow morning. So I’m late posting today. I’m too busy talking. 😀 But she’s on her laptop and I’m on mine right now. A little quiet time before we head out for an early supper with DD, then we’re off to riding lessons for the evening.

DH and I did a lot of yard work Saturday afternoon / evening, which was satisfying. Autumn is creeping into the picture, so I am eager to get outdoors to take some shots of the changes the garden is going through right now. I took a few on Saturday and will leave you with those for right now. And the week’s menu. 🙂 We’ll get back to more garden pictures in a few days.
