I got this link from my BFF. So funny for you moms who have nursed your wee ones. I laughed out loud several times.

I've been a neglectful blogger over the summer. These past couple weeks we've packed a lot in--book club, visiting with old friends, cousins and aunts, chilling with baby friends, and hanging at home. This morning the Anderson clan went to the Ferry Building with Sooz, Matt, RoRo, Ruby, Mom, and my awesome Aunt Ruthanne and cousin Laura. We had a great time drinking Blue Bottle---mmmm my favorite coffee--- and walking around with the napping kiddos. So here's a photo montage....
We hosted book club at our place and made some corn cakes with shredded pork, and a kicking side of beans. This pic is of the day-after leftovers...MMM, yumminess. The food and the conversation with friends definitely overshadowed the book.
Whatever-is-in-the-fridge pizza: Pancetta, cherry tomatoes, marjoram, brushed with garlic olive oil---
With Polly! Sarah's (Aaron's gal!) sister's baby. We couldn't wait for these girls to meet--they are only a week or so apart. We had a great brunch at my mom's place with the ladies of Sarah's family-- they are so sweet!
I harvested 18 ripe tomatoes from my driveway garden this week. Bliss!
Yeah!!! My BBF Trish came to visit with her baby! We went on a lovely walk. She lives all the way in North Carolina, so I savor her visits out west! She came with some awesome homemade gifts, hair clips and a pillowcase dress with bloomers for Sadie...check out Trish's new Etsy shop here where you can buy super cute girly hair clips for your wee one. Trish's little girl taught Sadie to wave...she's been doing it all day today. She also said "bye-bye" at least 5x!
Good times at the Ferry Building---with grandma here.

I plopped Sadie in the laundry bin for some fun the other day. I love how Sadie knows she's being super silly--her face says it all! She's even standing on some dirty laundry...
so she sank a little-
I love my silly baby. We've been having some good laughs this summer.

I know I keep talking about it, BUT....
Is the whole world reading this freaking wonderful book series? Now, it seems a little bandwagonish, but I have some good company---
Aunt Fern Emma
Mark's whole family (Claire, Andy [Andy's whole Family too], Scott, Lida, Vince, Sally)
Girl at Wheel Works yesterday
Susannah?? I don't think she started it though...
Besides, it's that good.
What are you reading this summer?

This week my first tomatoes ripened. Mmmmm, and they were delicious. Picking and eating food from your own garden brings a certain joy to your day. It is a joy filled with wonder and accomplishment. I think some summer squash will be ready soon too.
We are getting our house painted next week, and I worry that the painters might do some damage to my tomato plants. I'll keep my fingers crossed that they are gentle to my garden friends.watch over her as she sleeps... as a guardian tomato plant.
