Thursday we spent the day traveling around by bus. We started by checking out a kitchen showroom in a nearby town, where we looked at different styles of cabinets, particularly various mechanisms for accessing corner shelves. After a stroll through the town, we headed to the mall and looked at a couple of stores.
Friday morning I got my parents caught up on last season's Doctor Who, and then megory accompanied me to the library downtown. I've been seriously ODing on books about baking recently. I just can't help getting them, even though I only rarely bake sweets. (I somehow keep thinking that if I find the perfect recipe--like the chayote bread--it will make all the trouble of cleanup worth it and I will start baking it all the time.)
My tomatoes are continuing to ripen, and I'm getting a relatively steady stream of cherry tomatoes now. The larger sizes are tantalizingly blushed with color. I'm hoping to put together a report on all of the varieties' performance at the end of the season. I'm also excited that my squash are beginning to show signs of producing. I have a number of promising baby kabocha visible, and the other squash are not far behind.
