BreAnne had a 28-week OB appointment today and I got to play with the kiddos! Josiah woke up after she had left, and he jumped right into the fray. 

Poor, Gideon is under the weather. He's a trooper. 

These 3 and I attempted to put a floor puzzle together. I'm sure we would have done it if Bre hadn't come home when she did. 

I ran home and touched base. Stacia and Allie were both busy with their respective course work. I made Dad lunch, Michael mowed the lawn, Dad went down for a nap and I headed back to town to get my hair cut. 

The next time I came home Stacia was playing with meringues. She wondered if she could air brush some....they didn't melt. 

Next, she torched some of them (I'm sure there is a fancier name for that). 

A nice fall plate for youth group. 

I headed out to the garden to pick a salad...and got side tracked by flowers. 

I brought some inside. 

I did get lettuce, carrots, kale, onions, cucumbers, beets and green beans from the garden. 

The girls had wrapped up their school and projects when I got back inside. They joined me in scrubbing veggies, setting the table and such. 

I planted two kinds of beets this year: Chioggia (Bassano) candy cane striped, and Ruby Queen. Michael and Dad like beets. The candy cane beets grew much bigger...but how would they taste? I didn't notice a big difference. 

Michael however is the beet connoisseur.

He likes the Chioggia (Bassano) better. He thinks they are sweeter. They certainly bleed less red than the Ruby Queen.  I had a pork loin I made for the family. I avoid pork.  I have a freezer of wild salmon...and it cooks up in 7 - 10 minutes in the air fryer. 
Dijon, honey and spices...

Michael decided the salmon looked better than the pork and joined me. There was also an entire salad, green beans, beets and a cucumber tomato salad from our garden. I felt good about a meal we'd caught or grown. 

After a bit of clean up time the girls and I left for church. The women are still not meeting so I used the time to run a couple of errands. 

Y'ALL! ONE of dad's meds cost $237 and the full cost was over $1000!!!!  Just let that sink in.  I also dropped books off at the library and then went back to the parking lot to read. 

After youth we dropped Allie off to have coffee and catch up with a friend.
