Weekend edition… =) This has been a LONG week, and I am glad I was able to capture a bit of the fun with the trusty camera. The Professor was cleaning the bathtub drain a few days ago and cut his thumb… we spent the better part of Friday at the VA ER where he got tetanus booster and 2 other shots. We did not make it home until almost 10 pm and he got to sleep in a bit on Saturday, after which he relaxed with the rare treat of video gaming. Here are several screen shots, my foxling was mesmerized, and I was in awe of how far we have come from Frogger and Space Invaders.

Our resident baby birds had quite the growth spurt, and upon hearing new, excited peeps coming from their bush, The Historian and I investigated, and found two had flown the coop and this little darling was sitting on a branch outside his nest, chirping up a storm. As you can see from the smattering of reddish-gold, he is proudly displaying the fact that he is indeed a robin.  A day after we snapped these photos, he flew away, and we have not seen any of them since. The weather is beginning to act like autumn is on its way, so we think they must be hard at work, scouring the neighboring trees for a suitable winter home.

Today, I made a special treat for my lovies, with the last of the summer squash and zucchini. Putting forth minimal effort, I mixed some organic corn and onion with the squashes and some whole wheat flour and a sprinkle of various herbs and spices. I cooked them like pancakes in a touch of coconut oil, and we feasted on the late summer bounty, along with salads and grapes. As the nights cool, I am beginning to add nourishing soups and hot dinners to our menu. I love the changing seasons, and feeding my family with foods we can get locally and in season is one way of embracing what is coming next. =) Here’s to new beginnings, and time with those you love.
