Even though I am not heading off to school anymore, I still remember the thrill of my new pencil box, shoes, first-day outfit and the overwhelming feeling that this year was going to be my best one ever.
More then New Year's Eve, I feel the start of the school year is a time when changes can and will happen; promises to oneself can be made and expectations can rise. So happy new school year to every one big or small starting off on a new adventure in what ever grade from kindergarten to post graduate work!
Last night we revisited The Twisted Vine restaurant in Derby and to my delight, the food was as delicious this time as the first time we went. They really have it going on in that place: wonderful value, superb food, friendly staff and great ambiance.
I met the owner, Joyce, who's adorable and also happens to love Maine Coon cats too! Last time I mentioned this restaurant I thought someone else owned it. I apologize Joyce for not giving you credit!!
My tomatoes are coming in over a pound a piece...they look like red pumpkins and I have more than I can eat - wish I could hand you one through the computer screen as they are so sweet and juicy and the best we've ever grown.
Husband made the garlic dills yesterday so in about 8 weeks we'll have some really sour, garlicky pickles to munch on...yum can't wait.
