Preschool starts this week. It is only three mornings a week, but this is hard for me. I am sure I will adjust quickly – but my world is CHANGING!
We did a little clothes shopping. My son is no longer in toddlers. He also has his own ideas about what he wants to wear.
Mom and I have continued to make jams and jellies. We get together once a week and make a few batches. So far we have made lots of Blackberry Jelly and Salsa Jam. We tried plum jam, which was a little blah, and Grandma’s recipe for plum compote – which we over reduced. It is pretty tasty.
The garden is finally producing tomatoes, though some of plants are having problems. Next I will start making tomato sauce.
We went to Powells (an incredible bookstore – if ever in Portland, it needs to be a stop) Rich was looking for books for his fall class. I looked for books on canning and jellies. I also bought a lot of books for Carl. We also went to see Ratatouille. It was fun. We did have a little trouble with Carl kicking the seat in front of him, but that was easily fixed (he sat on my lap or curled up in his chair.) I loved the food and the sites of Paris (even if they were animation…)
Well off to fix dinner.
