The Real Show-Off

My husband often calls me a show-off if I do something like I did just now - go out to pick tomatoes and then end up weeding the asparagus, yanking up the last pepper plant, and pulling down all the bean teepees while I'm at it. I'm not showing off, I'm just relishing a rare moment of extreme energy! Well he should talk. He worked all day, made the 45 minute commute home, headed to the hardware store to buy concrete pavers and laid them in the back of the house to get ready for the generator to be delivered tomorrow. He finished that and helped me pick tomatoes and now he's out roto-tilling the new planting area that we're making out front. Now that's a show-off! I would never say that to him though - I'm too grateful for his energy and willingness to work so hard! Not to mention the fact that we are never done praising God for the recovery He gave DH from his heart attack last year - amazing grace for sure.

But as we were picking tomatoes, I came across the real show-off - this cherry tomato plant, still producing it's little brains out. I guess no one told it that today is September 30th!


Well, this is all then.
