…is slow but sure!
Two creative salads made this weekend. Creative, meaning I went beyond the classic potato or macaroni salad for both potlucks thinking there would be plenty of those available. Ended up everyone got creative…I don’t think I saw any potato salad at either potluck and maybe one classic macaroni salad!!
Both with Feta…b/c it’s betta’ with Feta!! And we can buy our Feta right in our little town! Locally made!
My first attempt at a hairband for Phebe! All supplies from Hobby Lobby.
Gardening! Definitely a creative outlet for me. A greenhouse is within walking distance, so we WALK! My sweet little helper LOVES to be outdoors. I think her first birthday cake is going to be Dirt Dessert…so I can give her some decent “dirt” to eat. GoodNESS, but she loves getting into the dirt and EATING it!!!
One fine morning’s garden picking,
Some creative photography one evening as I sat out on the deck reading. Love the expansion of our living area this time of year.
I have another succulent display for outdoors now. Farm & Fleet had a delightful assortment, so I couldn’t resist!
A beautiful rainbow one morning helped set the tone for the rest of the day,
A couple of graduation cards made with their school colors. Love my Silhouette for quick and easy!
And another PL week done,
So that brings me to 34/100 including this blog post…b/c writing is so creative and therapeutic for me!
And some etc. “around here” goings on…
we have a new used F150. I LOVE trucks and this one is no exception!! The kids love it too…DD2 and Phebe have been out playing in it almost everyday. Phebe loves it! And DD2 loves having a happy baby sister to play with!!! Don’t worry, they aren’t going anywhere, thus no carseat! Just pure play!
Soon to follow tonight is a used pop-up camper that this truck was purchased to haul! We are getting it from a co-worker of DH’s. So thrilled to find one from someone we know AND whose wife is a clean freak! Yea! No worries of bed bugs and other possible grossness.
And some wonderful family time! We often find ourselves decompressing at the end of a summer day. It’s quite lovely!! Yes, there is still plenty to do, but part of summer is enjoying being together. And we make a point of that often! The weeds will still be there, yadda, yadda, yadda!
And frequent bonfires allow for more decompressing…and maybe a few S’mores…though this one didn’t b/c I didn’t have the ingredients for it and I had already made bars…and we don’t need a double whammy of sugar in one evening.
And these two enjoyed each other’s company more while DD1 was away this last weekend.
And I got some exercise this weekend!
A 9 mile bike ride with DH…he was hauling Phebe! My first ride since before pregnancy. Hello jello legs!
And a wonderful hot run Sunday afternoon! Felt great to get back and crash on the front lawn with the rest of the family!
This was my sky view,
And that’s all for now. Phebe is teething and is quite clingy so I’m not getting much done these days, so this feels HUGE! She fell asleep just as we got back from town errands. She is not a huge daytime sleeper, so this is a luxury.
