Chyann had a good time in MN at the horse show. She ended up coming home with Nan's folks on Saturday afternoon. It was 98* there with 100% humidity - minimal shade. They showed early in the morning and by noonish she was totally done in by the heat.
It was all a great experience for her though. There is another show over Labor Day weekend that she won't be able to attend because of school, and 2 parades she'll be marching in.
Have you noticed grocery prices rising in your area? Seems to me like everything has gone up! From milk to fruit to taco sauce. For example I like Taco bell's hot sauce. It comes in a 7.5oz bottle. Last year at this time it cost 1 dollar even (plus tax of course), yesterday I got the very same bottle and it cost 1.46! How's that for inflation!
Corn is ripening in the garden and it is so delicious! The green beans are about ready to be pickled. I'm having to trim back the suckers on my tomato's to get some air moving between the plants to dry them out. The few that have ripened have had wonderful flavor. I love a fresh tomato sandwich.
I'm on the hunt for a recipe for spicy pickled brussel sprouts for my Dad. If you've heard of a good one let me know :)
PS Chyann got 94* at PT this week! This kid is phenomenal! and wont her doctors be surprised when we see them later this month ~ or maybe they'll just say we told you it would come, patience was all you/she needed.
