|The First Zucchini
Today, I harvested my first zucchini! It practically doubled its size in a couple of days!
This morning, getting ready to go to work, I found it a bit of a challenge to find an outfit to wear. Things I tried on either didn't fit or didn't coordinate with other items! A black skirt with a blue floral design fitted, but I didn't have a black blouse to go with it and the blue blouse didn't really match. The brown pants were too big and so were the old black pair (haven't hemmed the new pair, yet). Eventually, I settled on my black skirt (the same skirt I wore to lunch with my friend on Saturday) with a salmon pink blouse, and topped it with a black cardigan:
Which, as can be seen from the picture, was a slightly different shade of black from the skirt, as it is an old cardigan and faded after much washing:

The pile has 3 skirts (which fit, but don't have a blouse to match), 2 pairs of pants (too big), 2 or 3 blouses (too big) and a jacket (too big). I will be putting aside everything except for the skirts.
These are the possible combinations I've picked to wear to the doctor's and then, the office, tomorrow: the skirt is, again, something I sewed with fabric in my mother's stash.
|Combo 1: skirt with blue twin set
|Combo 2: skirt with cream knit top
|Combo 3: Combo 2 worn with the cardigan from the twin set
|Combo 4: Combo 2 worn with a navy cardigan
After I came home from work, I harvested my zucchini, returned phone calls from aunts who had called, and spoke with my half-sister who called. I called to see if I need to report for jury duty on Wednesday, and was told no. Which means I can go to my doctor's appointment on Wednesday morning, after all. Still later, I video chatted with daughter.
Today, I am grateful for:
- Didn't have to report for jury duty today
- Don't have to report for jury duty tomorrow, either
- I can go to my doctor's appointment, tomorrow a.m.
- The first zucchini harvested from the garden!
- Phone calls from family
How was your Tuesday? Have you harvested anything from your garden, yet? What are your favorite zucchini recipes?
