Nashville really was a fun town. I would like to go back there, but will bring my cowgirl boots next time. I wish I had painted this mural located in my hotels' stairwell to the parking garage.

Here on my own I made this empty nest crumble. The apricots and strawberries were great. Not so sure about the pine nuts. They should have been good, but...

School has begun and the kids are back in full force, requesting to use the bathroom and asking about the sock monkeys. Somehow I have forgotten the sock monkeys' names over the summer. What's a gal to do?
The college daughter seems to be doing well and made it into Kappa Delta after much drama. She even likes two of her classes. That is definitely one for the Roll Tide cheer.
Off to make my green smoothie. Got hooked on those in Nashville. Have a great weekend.

Alabama is half way to somewhere

Ah summer is winding down. Italy is over. My basil is losing it's green oomph... Deer have nothing much left to munch on. I went to my classroom. Disaster there. Looks like it was involved in an emergency weather experience. Old artroom/office still a mess.
But I leave it all to take Chloe to college tomorrow. The car is packed to the brim and the only thing left is to make the brie sandwiches. I can't believe this little gem will be on her own.

All I can say is Roll tide!

Enjoy the last of summer. I guess some of you still have lots of it left. Maybe you can send me just a tiny bit more.
