My oldest competed in his first ever cross-country meet. Hundreds of kids. There were about 300 in his race alone! Such a blast to watch and cheer him on!
We are having some fabulous weather here in the Bay Area. Loved the late afternoon rays and the ducks at Central Park in Santa Clara where the meet was held.
I spent many days as a young girl feeding the ducks with my grandfather at this same place. Good vibes here.
And in other news I got out to a fun school benefit lunch last week at the lovely Testarossa Vineyard in Los Gatos put on by the Doves Club. Another wonderful September day. I have to pinch myself to be so lucky to live in such a gorgeous area of the world.

The great part about this fundraiser is you can direct exactly what school you would like your money to go to. Nice.
Yesterday my dad brought me this… Behold the bounty of my father’s garden. And this is after I shared with neighbors… Yes, we are blessed to have an amazing dad who can grow anything. Those tomatoes are delicious people. We are talking sweet! I am ruined for any boughten tomatoes and peppers.
Can you believe he grew all these in containers? Only thing is…Dad, I guess we’ll be eating tomatoes for a week or so at least. This is my third batch from his backyard or shall we say gentleman’s farm? (I keep hearing realtors use that term about orchard on a property- kinda funny. Trying to make old bunch of fruit trees sound high brow -you know?)
When life gives me tomatoes I make something like this… I just chop them, add course salt, olive oil, basil, and anything else that’s around. This was my version of an Italian bread salad..
This weekend we are headed to a friend’s house for family movie night. Sometimes it’s so nice to go to another’s home for an evening. And then my peeps ( i.e. my child labor force), don’t know it, but I’ve got a painting project planned that they are going to help with. He he…
Hope you have some fun plans and grab those Fall sunbeams..
