Our Harvest

Well, our garden was a bust this year. Our strawberry plans didn't produce a single strawberry, and the tomato plant has produced a total of two red tomatoes. It is currently absolutely LOADED with green tomatoes but with the lack of sunshine this summer, the rest refuse to ripen up. Sigh. The basil was the only think that did okay. So anyway here are some pictures of I decided to take pictures of my one garden success. A caprice salad.
The tenacious tomato that actually ripened on the vine!
Oh, and my cute apron. Hubby picked it out!
Isn't it pretty!
The result: A beautiful and tasty caprice "inspired" salad with tomato and basil from the garden, Dubliner cheese (which I love, but my Mom says tastes like licking a goat. My only question is "when did you last lick a goat?") topped with cottage cheese mixed with a bit of diced red bell pepper and onion and fresh ground pepper. It was Soooo good!

My new Do :)

Here are some pictures of my Fab. new haircut. I love it. I also have 2 new pairs of glasses, but I forgot to take pictures with my favorite ones, the brown and pink ones. I do have a pic of me in the black ones though.
Yep, it is much shorter :)
Here are the black glasses (not as cute as the pink and brown tho)

The backdrop is my Grandma's fabulous Hawaiian shower curtian which happens to go great in my extra bathroom!
And that ladies and gentlemen, is my new haircut.
Sorry the fist pictures are so blurry, I took these myself.
