It was a lovely day.

I am one lucky woman. From the cake at the end of the workday yesterday to breakfast in Port Townsend this morning, a walk in Chief Chetzemoka Park, the Mariners winning in the bottom of the 14th, all the calls and facebook comments from friends and family, a walk on the beach with the dog at sunset....and the presents! My life is far from perfect, but today it came pretty darn close. Thank you.

Something to blog about.

It's is my birthday! I'm one happy girl. Look what arrived from Portland. My friend Pam over at One Gal's Trash spoils me. She blogged about finding this pie plate at a thrift store a couple of weeks ago and I commented how much I loved it. Now it's mine and I'm already making plans for fall baking. Thank you Pam!!!

It's a tradition.

Chocolate chip pancakes on the first day of school....

They were yummy!

Ahh, September.

My favorite time of year. September is when kids go back to school, fall begins, baseball penant races are in full swing, and it's my birthday month! I love the small changes in the weather almost everyday...the crisp mornings and the trees changing into beautiful reds, oranges and yellows. Not that I don't like the summer, it's just that I really dislike the lack of any routine, kids (and husband) sleeping in much too late and me having to be quiet in our little house, and the heat...alas, that is what gives us these amazing tomatoes that I am devouring like candy these days.
