Today is the first day of school in Macomb. My 3 children are grown now, but I have fond memories from this time of year. We always took a first day of school photo. Even as teenagers, my children cooperated (sometimes reluctantly) with my request for this. I really loved seeing everyone's excitement as they reconnected with friends they had not seen over the summer when I dropped them off at school. We tried to eat our evening meal together as a family just to catch up on the day. That got a little crazy when they were in high school working around evening practices, ball games etc., but we usually were successful. I miss that now. Happy "First Day of School" to those who have children or grandchildren still in school. To those of us who have have finished that chapter, hopefully you can take a moment to reflect back on those days fondly!

Tomato Season! Finally!! How many ways can you eat a fresh, summer home grown tomato? I'm working on my own personal research project and it's been one of the best ideas I've had. There are the usual BLTs, but I prefer just tomato, lettuce and a little mayo on toasted whole wheat along with a perfectly seasoned, fresh from the stalk, corn on the cobb! Then there's the tomato and mozzarella with fresh basil and balsamic vinegar salad or caprese if your prefer.... Tomato tarts, roasted tomatoes on pizza, homemade tomato sauce/pizza sauce. Tonight I'm going to roast them with zucchini and corn that I've cut off the cob, and poblano pepper with jack cheese for a great summer veggie wrap. Yum!! Oh, the taste of summer. Colorful, fresh and bursting with flavor and wholesome goodness. Don't delay! Hit up your Farmers Markets and fresh produce isle at your grocery. Enjoy it while it lasts!

Pay backs are.....WONDERFUL! As I was sitting in the sun room at the Cedar Falls branch working away, Miss Julianna stopped by and gave me a quick shoulder massage! Boy, did that feel nice! I love sitting in that spot as residents often cut through the courtyard on their way to a meal or activity, so it is a great opportunity to stop and visit, check in with them, or see how their day is. Not to mention an occasional rub down! Of course, I had to offer to pay her back, which she gladly accepted. As the old saying goes....you scratch my back, I'll scratch yours!

Whew it's hot!! And of course my garden is producing like crazy. I picked lots of cucumbers late last night and there will be plenty more tomorrow. My green beans are also about ready to explode into production. Of all the garden vegetables, green beans are my favorite. Picking is a bit of a pain, but I love to snap them. Brings back lots of fond childhood memories. Snapping beans with grandma at the kitchen table. She was so much faster than I was. Of course, that may have been due to my method - snap one, eat one! Eventually the pan was full and then it was waiting until dinner. Fresh greens beans could just be my dinner entree - they are the best! Hopefully you are also enjoying some fresh summer produce and spending time with those you love. Thanks Grandma for the great memories!

So, I have a new hobby. Wait for it...... I like to count how many people are on their cell phones. Have you noticed when you're out to dinner, waiting at the doctor's office, in line at the grocery (just to name a few) the number of people that are completely absorbed in their little electronic world? Don't get me wrong. I understand the value of being "connected". It definitely has it's perks! Keeping up with kids schedules, calling home from the store to see if you need to pick up more coffee while you're out. All legitimate reasons to be lovin' that little device! The tricky part is balancing being in the moment with being on the phone. The gift of someone's attention is priceless. That person sitting across the table from you or even in line at the grocery store provides us with opportunities to be in the moment and sharing a level on connection that doesn't happen on your cellular device. Take a moment on this gorgeous, summer day and look up! check out the clouds in the sky, enjoy some eye contact with a friend, notice the beautiful flowers that are in full bloom after our much needed rain. Our time on this earth with family and friends is fleeting. Be present and make some memories!

What's your favorite part about summertime? I remember as a kid going to grandmas house, picking strawberries or sweet corn from the garden and making home made ice cream on the back porch. The old fashioned way, with a crank! All the work and time it took. Everyone sharing in the work and the stories of days gone by! Truly the BEST ice cream I've ever had. I've been thinking about buying a hand crank ice cream maker so I can share some of these memories with my kids and grandson. Surprisingly I have met with some resistance! Apparently it's "too much" WORK! Sadly, I put my plans on hold and resigned myself to the fact that in this age of immediate gratification there is no patience for process. No appreciation for shared goals. No value on nostalgia. Sigh. But then I changed my mind. Patience, appreciation and value are learned only through the experiences of life. So yes, I will buy the ice cream maker and we will make the BEST ice cream memories ever!

We are having so much fun today at Bickford! Christmas Carols on the piano, Decorating our Christmas Tree...Lots of laughter and lots of advice from our residents on just the right spot for that ornament on the tree! There's nothing like Christmas to bring a song to your heart and a smile to your lips! Enjoy this crazy, happy, wonderful time of year!!
