How I spent my labor day weekend...

Labor day weekend has come and gone. My parents were down to visit for most of the weekend, and as the name dictated, I put them to work - cleaning gutters, hanging shelves, scouring my kitchen, and most importantly giving my lawn a good mow with a *real* lawn mower. Thanks Mom & Dad! I get my OCD-ness from somewhere. And I'm definitely the most lax of my family.

My CSA bag was brimming again this week - more figs (delicious!), grapes, peppers (sweet and hot), corn, eggs, apples, greens, and wild mushrooms. My parents helped a little with the eggs, we had roasted red peppers in black bean dip and on pizza, and my mother ground up the wild mushrooms for me to use as substitute meat in spaghetti sauce (on tap for tonight) per Cindy at my CSA.

Dad and I bought edging for my big backyard garden plot and I also bought a gallon of paint to finally get some color in the living room. Pink Odyssey. I mean, really, when in my life will I ever be able to have a pink living room again? Unless I remain a spinster with cats and then I guess I can have it forever. But I digress...

Total non-sequitor but have you started watching Glee? I can't recommend it highly enough. Maybe you can get the pilot and first episoide on Hulu.

Love the pink living room! Perhaps you and I can join forces in my quest to convince Captain Husband to embrace some more color in his life. :)

Pink! In the living room! My disdain for pink notwithstanding, I think it's an excellent idea!

Love that you are listening to Harry Potter! Do you like it? I have been re-reading the entire series over the last few months. On book 7 and going to cry when I finish! I just love those books.

Love Glee - have seen the pilot and then started watching last week. Definitely on my list!

T - I am loving Harry Potter! A little dangerous while driving - I seem to get caught up too much in the story :)
