For the past several years my mom and I have made salsa together during the summer. This year Naomi decided to "help". The house was filled with a fantastic aroma of onions, peppers, tomatoes, and spices.

Opa came by to play with Naomi while we were working. Her favorite part of the day was a "horsey ride" with Opa. She didn't want to get off. Poor Opa, his arms and knees were starting to get sore, (but don't feel to sorry for him, I know he loved every minute with his special girl).

It was a long day filled with a lot of work, but I know it will be worth it when I can go the pantry on a cold winters day and crack open a spicy jar of salsa to enjoy with some corn chips.

"To laugh often and much, to win
the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children, to earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false
friends, to appreciate beauty, to find the best in others, to leave the world a bit better, whether by a healthy child, or a garden patch... to know that even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. This
is to have succeeded!" - Emerson
