....to be back home again! That old John Denver song always goes through my mind when we've been away. Just a quick post here to let you all know we arrived home safely yesterday afternoon. I feel bad for Idahoan's statewide. There are so many fires up and down the state. Driving west on Highway 12 was like driving through thick fog only it was smoke and the air quality was probably off the charts.
Thanks to those of you who have inquired as to Mr. Squash's well being! He's doing much better thanks to antibiotics! He's looking forward to eating this Red Bartlett that I just picked off our espaliered pear tree!
Another tomato bounty awaited our arrival home! I think this batch will be spaghetti sauce. Also, one of the wives of the Peace Corps group - who is a quilter as well - gave me a great tip. Place tomatoes whole and unpeeled in a freezer bag. When they thaw, the skins come right off! Of course too many would take up a lot of room, but I really like the suggestion and will try it! Thanks, Pam!
I wanted to show you this wonderful, Art Deco glass bowl we picked up in Helper, Utah at an antique shop! Won't it look great with Christmas ornaments inside - or a yummy, but salad?
I'll be busy the next few days getting everything around the house back to normal. I should be caught up with posts by then, too! I really appreciate those of you who kept up with us on our trip!
