In It Together, Tess, Peachy

1. They are only children after all, and prone to the antics of baby animals, all rough and tumble and messy.
1a. Jesting with co-workers and finding the humor in it all makes it easier to come back and do it all over again tomorrow : )
2. Tess and I are watching the BBC series, Tess of the D'Ubervilles. I'm glad the heroine is all I remember her to be. I wouldn't want our daughter to think we named her after someone awful.
3. The latest batch of peaches from Saunders Brothers have the best of all peach qualities. The variety is called 'Blake'. They are large, slow to ripen, sweet and juicy, and the fruit separates easily from the pit. Steve gave me a bite of his that he cut up into vanilla ice cream.


  1. I read that book Tess of the D'Urbervilles in college and had to write a big paper on it. That's neat that you named your Tess after her.

  2. You named your daughter after Tess? Wow, that's great. I always wanted to name a son after Andre Bolkonsky from War and Peace. :-)

  3. Just an unfortunate murderess who ended up dying! j/k. I love bbc dramas and I love the name Tess!
