After the wedding, Christy and I headed off to Holden Beach with my Mom and sisters Cindy and Kim. It was the smallest group we've ever had at the beach - just 7 of us - but it was so nice to just relax on the beach. And since it was the week after Labor Day, it was not crowded at all.
Since then, things have gotten quite hectic. We have been dealing with mice in Christy's apartment for about 6 months now, and the problem is getting worse instead of better, so we have spent a lot of time the past week dealing with the apartment management. Hopefully they are finally taking things seriously, and the plans they have implemented will solve the problem. If not, we may be looking for a new apartment for her - she won't even live at her apartment right now, and I don't blame her. Mice are just totally gross and icky!!! So we will see how all of that goes.

So, after having such great success with the salsa, today or tomorrow these babies below are destined to become pepper jelly!!! Cute jars, pectin, and a recipe from a neieghbor are awaiting them. And in case these aren't enough, there are more waiting in the garden to join them.
Now, I just need some ideas on what to do with these little lovelies!!! My cherry tomato plants are just as prolific as the bigger ones. We simply cannot eat enough salads to make a dent in them. And these in the basket are only half of what I have waiting to be used - there is about the same amount already in the refrigerator. Anyone have any great ideas for cherry tomatoes? My neighbors don't seem to be big fans!!!
Sorry to interrupt the travel posts, but the garden just wouldn't wait!!!!! If only my squash and zucchini plants had done as well as the tomatoes and peppers!
Be back soon!

The first one is along the Ilmenau river right by our hotel. The second is a couple of the old buildings downtown, and the last is at the end of Christy's little street. We wandered around for a little while, and then had dinner at the last brewery left in Luneberg. We sat outside eating schnitzel and drinking beer. And then wandered around some more. We spent Sunday morning seeing the rest of the town, going to the top of the water tower, and checking out the three largest churches. Then we headed off to Wolfsburg.

We're busy getting Christy ready for her trip to Germany where she will be studying in Luneburg for 5 weeks. Then Carl, Sean, and I are going over to meet her and traveling around for 13 days. I can't wait! It's like the trip of a lifetime to be able to do this with my kids before they get out of college and are out on their own.
