Exciting news! There are currently TWO tomatoes growing on one of five vines in our small, pathetic garden.
(Yes, I know, you can see only one of the tomatoes in this picture.) We planted the vines two months ago, I'm guessing, in June, and ever since, I've been anticipating the first tomato sandwich. Nothing tastes better. I do hope there are enough tomatoes to make salsa, though. I found an awesome recipe a few years ago.
Let's see...what else is going on? Oh! Our friend Mike is finally moving in. We extended the invitation to him shortly after we bought the house, and although he wanted to move out of his grandparents' place, drama prevented him from doing so for awhile. In a lot of ways, it'll be nice to have someone else in the house, but I think I will miss being alone sometimes.
Kyle and I went to a picnic hosted by Big Brothers, Big Sisters last week. They provided Arby's regular roast beef sandwiches, chips, drinks, and ice cream for all the Bigs and Littles, and there were several games, such as disc golf, football, and three-legged races. There was also a water fight with sponges and squirt guns, and of course everyone got soaked! It was really fun, and I'm grateful Big Brothers, Big Sisters offers these opportunities.
The end of the term is coming up. I've passed two out of the four classes I wanted to complete, but I am nearly done with a third. I only have one task left, but I doubt I will finish it by the end of this month. I've been struggling with the assignment, but I'm going to ask my brother, James, if he'll help me out. Even if I don't pass this class by the end of the term, I'm still in good standing. I'm a bit disappointed in myself, though, and I'm jealous of all those who've recently successfully graduated from college.
By the way, Sean started his own blog a few weeks ago, and he'd really like more followers. Now that I've pimped my husband's blog, I'm going to bed. Good night!
