Coolest book cover ever and my first tomato!

I am reading this GREAT book called The Seamstress. It's is set in Brazil in the early 1920's about these two sisters. One gets captured by the cangaciero's and one marries a man she doesn't love to get out of the countryside and move to the city. It's so good I have a hard time putting it down, I read until 11:30 last nite and had to make myself go to sleep. It has the prettiest book cover , I would frame it if it didn't have words all across it.

I have been doing alot of knitting lately, I'm inspired by Fall coming. It doesn't feel like fall where I live as it was 115 outside this weekend! The fall catalogs start rolling in though and it makes me want to feel cozy. I'm so bad about capturing what I'm working on in photos, I really do need to make time to take pics, so busy is the life of a mother of two!

I FINALLY have tomato's!!!! I picked my first one Sunday, it is the size of a golf ball, it's small but I am proud all the same of my little tomato! I'm going to cut it into liittle wedges with some salt and eat it tonite! I can't wait until I can pick tomatos everyday...I love them :)

It has been threatening to rain all day , I wish it would I love the rain. It probably will not though

my husband says it has to do with the mountains around us and the humidity off the lake blah blah blah blah and so it always goes around us :( or storms at nite when I cannot enjoy it. Maybe I'll do a rain dance around my tomatoes tonite.hehe!
