It's been a while since I've blogged so here is a bit of what has been going on in my life:
1. We took a few days off and went to Palm Desert, CA. Yes, we are a bit crazy to do this near July, but the rates were too good to pass up. Check out the view from our hotel room. Left just before it got to 117 degrees. Good timing :)
2. We've harvested some lettuce.
Doesn't it look like we purchased these beautiful greens? Yup, we grew them in our backyard. I have to admit, I took a great deal of time of washing each and every leaf. I am a city girl and proud of it. Seeing a bug or two on my food does NOT appeal to me. A few slugs were washed away (and garbage disposaled, for good measure).
3. I am nearing the age of 50. That just does not seem possible. I don't think I look or feel 50, but I may be biased. I'm not there yet, but very close.
4. Saw my best friend today. I am lucky to see her once a year. She lives out of state but she has family near by. We are only 5 days apart in age. My youngest child will be a senior in high school; her youngest will be a second grader.
5. Speaking of my best friend. Her son is very creative. It's been hot so check out his way of cooling off.
In case you can't tell - he put a liner in the back of a pick up truck and filled it with water. He's lounging in an inner tube. He also didn't like the school lunches so one day he cooked hot dogs on a Hibachi in the back of said truck. I love that guy!
6. One more best friend moment - we picked cherries. They are sweet and yummy. I plan to pit them and freeze most to put in smoothies.
7. My "baby" heads off to college in just over a month. I can't believe he's old enough to leave, yet I am so excited for him and all that growing up has to offer.
8. Painting the house takes a really, really long time. My dear hubby is meticulously working on the first level. Slow as it may be, it looks so great. After 20+ color swatches we painted on the back of the house we settled on one of the first ones we liked and we are very happy with the results so far.
9. My toenail is broken too close to the bottom. I stubbed it and now hope it can grow out before it comes off. I keep polishing it hoping that will keep it on a bit longer. Sorry, probably too much info, but hey, you never know what you'll get here.
10. I am in a rut in regards to dinners. Does anyone have any recipe ideas?
There you have it. Anything interesting, or not, happening in your life?
