A Slice of My Life – Week 33

August 20, 2012

We had some hot weather this week.  Good think I have a friend who has a membership to the sweetest beach club.  We planned to go for a couple of hours and stayed all afternoon.

We went to our neighborhood farmers’ market for the last time.  In addition to saying goodbye to the quesadilla guy who has been selling us quesadillas since Graham could barely gum through one piece (now he mows through all four), I bought this exquisite head of lettuce.

The market is right in one of our favorite parks.  So we said goodbye to that too.

Hot air out, cool air in.

Straight hair!  I love it when my hair moves.

So many hidden treasures in our house.

We haven’t bought Crocs for years.  It was time.

I made a chilled peach soup for a dinner party on Saturday.  It was a little too sweet for me but really lovely and an amazing texture.  These bowls are from my grandmother’s china and the spoon is my mom’s silver.  I love those spoons.

Although it is still a week away, we celebrated my brother Michael’s birthday at our favorite Mexican restaurant.  The birthday boy gets a cup of ice cream and also gets to wear the sombrero.


  1. LOVE that painting by Graham, it is so beautiful! xo
