Nice pics, Beth! I love farmers markets, though most of ours only have corn and melons.

Well, this is odd. I felt something crawling up my leg, so I smacked it. It was a hornet, and I couldn't find the body post-smack. I just now just reached into my purse, and the damn thing was in there and stung the heck out of my palm. I flung it off my hand, let out a few expletives, and I still can't find it.

Ow! That sounds painful and miserable, Dawg. I was watching two hornets caught by the cooler air stagger around the patio outside the unit door. They sure looked slow. I didn't step on them, I don't want to alert the rest of them, wherever they are...

I'm cleaning out my purse now, hopefully no more surprises. Life in the country. We have a veritable plethora of stinging and biting insects here, I was hosing out the compost pail, and came inside to discover three big burning welts on the back of my leg. Never felt anything stinging me outside, but apparently something did, just a delayed reaction. The burning turned to itching today.

Give me a snake in the garage door and a pair of tongs any time.

Time sneaks up on me.

I realized how much I have to do before we leave on our New Mexico trip early Thursday morning! Ykies! I need a hair cut and just found out my hairdresser is off until Wed!

Friends and family have me regularly sleuthing for things at the thrift stores I frequent. I've been looking for a bread machine for a friend for quite some time and came across a brand new one at Goodwill about 6 weeks ago.

My friend, Joy, lives nearly an hour from me so we don't get to connect often. In this case it's a bonus because I've been putting the little machine through boot camp.

I know, or at least was nearly 100% confident, it was brand new. No dust, no goo, no scratches anywhere, had the original book, cord was factory wrapped. Pretty likely it had never been used. Less than $3, too!

It's a beautiful Sunbeam model and, so far, has performed like a champ. It's given us a pair of golden baguettes, a dozen potato rolls, 2 dozen brioche hamburger buns and, today, I'm about to put two loaves of white toasting bread in the oven. The only other recipe I'm going to throw at it is cornmeal pan rolls. I have no doubt it will get an A+.

Joy is not well-experienced in making bread, so I've been creating each recipe as a tutorial. Another reason for testing the machine. I can give her the step-by-step of what is necessary to do well.

I'll include a homemade pastry/bread cloth for shaping her dough, a quantity of yeast (I buy it in 2-pound packages.), and a spare bread-slicing guide I don't need. She can play in flour and yeast to her heart's content.

Looking all over for my travel craft bag. Can't remember where I last put it.

If I'd leave the house once in a while this wouldn't BE a problem!

Why is it when you don't need it, you see it all the time. But when it's needed it disappears?

Murphy's looking over your shoulder just waiting his opportunity...
