In the Garden

I have two volunteer sunflowers in the garden this summer -- kindly placed there by birds using our birdfeeder. This sunflower has about 5 different heads on it and is adorable. We finally ate dinner out on our back patio on Monday evening. With the sunflowers in the background, I pretended we were in Italy on vacation. :)

Christina and JK are back in their own home. We had a great time with them -- something one doesn't often get to experience with relatives who live in the same town.

This week strawberries and blueberries are on sale for the lowest price of the season. I've just bought 35 pounds and must freeze them all before leaving for church camp on Saturday. This happened to me last year -- the fruit went on sale just before our Florida vacation.

Have many of you watched the Murder on the Orient Express available on Masterpiece Theatre this week? I found out today that not only did Michael and I watch it last night but my mom did too, and Christina and JK did as well! Great minds think alike!

I can't help but be a little envious of all that lovely summer bounty!
Is Murder on the Orient Express the old one with Albert Finney, or is there a new one out? Oooh I hope there's a new one! Are you an Agatha Christie fan, Heather? Like me?
Have a lovely weekend. We're going away to the seaside too for a couple of nights.

I caught the last half of it. The acting was excellent!

Since I pick up PBS on the TV hooked up to an antennae, I get PBS 1, 2, and 3 (two is all Spanish so I don't watch it).

They often rerun the Masterpiece Classic and Mystery on #3 a few weeks later so I'm hoping to see all of it then.

I love WWII movies and shows and they just rerun (reran?) the last Masterpiece Mystery of the Foyle's War programs on #3.

Heather, where did you find your berries so cheap?
