Weekend Wrap-Up: Neighborhood BBQ

 Grill "Princess"

It was a busy weekend before starting vacation on Tuesday afternoon.

Our neighborhood hosted a block party this past Saturday and I volunteered weeks ago to be the "grill master".

We had 48 adults and 7 kids and everyone had a great time hanging out in Kaye's backyard! Thanks to Kaye and the entire committee for a job well done. 

I spent 2 hours in front of the grill....cooking burgers, polish sausage, hot dogs and spicy links and loved every minute of it!

Everyone pitched in for a potluck of appetizers, salads and desserts.  There were lots of friendly faces and a good time was had by all!  It's a wonderful opportunity to meet your neighbors and I encourage everyone to be more active in their neighborhoods.

On Sunday, I planted my fall garden.  I've struggled the past few weeks with my yellow zucchini and decided to pull it out and start from scratch with a fall mix, including lettuce, spring onions and broccoli.

We also managed to haul another 20+ loads of bark dust around the front and back yards.  It's been a big job, but I think we are pretty much done...just in time for fall.
