Birthdays, Anniversaries, and Other August Fun: Still Enjoying My Blogging Break

Hello again! It’s been fun and busy around here! Thanks for sticking with me while I take my short internet break.

We co-celebrated Lydia’s second birthday and her cousins’ first birthday (which is a week earlier) with a pool party: pool party

┬áIt turns out it was also our eighth anniversary last week. Neither of us remembered until 9pm that night when my mother-in-law called to wish us a happy anniversary. I had been vaguely aware, I guess, that our anniversary was mid-August some time, and that we were approaching mid-August; but I had completely lost track of the date. I’d always vowed we would at least do something for our anniversary every year. So a few days later, we dropped Lydia off to be with my parents who were at a party and grabbed some soft-serve cones from an ice-cream place down the street. I didn’t even shower in preparation. The entire date lasted about 45 minutes.

Anyway, I also went swimming twice: once at the lake, and once in a pool. I can let go of summer a little more satisfied now.

I also did a bit of preserving — mostly freezing. Green peppers freeze great without blanching!

So that was my week, in a nutshell. How’s August treating you?
