It seems that we are hungry here. We are in desperate need of chips and salsa.

Brian has discovered the joys of tomatoes. Well, not really. He is not too fond of the red fruit and was very supportive of me when I planted 20 tomato plants this spring. He even figured out and put together a watering system for all those plants.

Now that we've had many tomatoes ripen and I've made spaghetti sauce, Brian has become a salsa maker. He's made a few batches and bottled some for later.

Now it's chips and salsa around here all the time.

Good thing we have something to put it in!

It's muggy inside

More mugs. Can you believe it? I don't know what has possessed me but I just want to make mugs. I think it's that I'm starting to feel more comfortable with handles. Handles are tricky for me. I know it's my lack of experience with them - so I am doing my best to remedy that.

Who knows. Maybe by Christmas I'll have so many mugs that I'll have to think of a cutesy saying and give them out as neighbor gifts. Or better yet, you could do that! I've packaged up a few with canisters of cocoa to sell at a boutique. We'll see how they go over. Right now though I need to run out to the studio and make some more.
