It's Thursday


It's Thursday!  Yes it is... Thursday...all day some may say.

Summer has been keeping us busy and I haven't been blogging much.  Today will be a two post day with RECIPES!

Outside my window...Overcast, maybe a storm coming through tonight?

I am thinking...I am thinking about what to fix for dinner!

I am thankful for...People who are serious about prayer.

From the learning rooms...The letters U and V and number 14

From the kitchen...Trying to find inspiration...even turning on the burners of the stove heats the house up another 2 degrees!  I grilled a whole chicken outside last night and made mashed potatoes inside.  It was so good!  The house took a while to cool down though.

I am wearing...Gray capri's with a black tee

I am creating... I tried to hem some pants for my manly man over the weekend with a cuff.  Didn't look so hot on him and he was saying the cuffs are flipping over.  Okay, time to rip it out...he will have a regular hem, no cuffs.  I also bought some pink beads to make a pink watch.

I am going...nowhere today.  I am blessed to stay home, I do that most days anyway, I just like it here!

I am reading...A tea shop mystery...

Chamomile Mourning

I am hoping...Winter doesn't come...

I am hearing...Kitty Shadow crying for #1 son who just left to run an errand for me.  A load of laundry in the washer.  And a planning #2 son on which colors to color his paper.

Around the house...Around the house, my dishes are done, bathrooms are clean, dust bunnies are picked up.  My bed is NOT made!

One of my favorite things...A gentle hug from my manly man!

(Auto shop classes start young around our house!)

A few plans for the rest of the week:  I think there is some serious car repair and fix up going on over here the next couple days.  We are going to put power steering in the Toyota to make future 4X4 adventures more pleasant!

Here is picture thought I am sharing...This is betheelou's garden!  For the first time in 20 years I have been able to grow tomatoes successfully!  I am thrilled!  I have been harvest a couple tomaotoes every other day and picking them a bit green otherwise the squirrels eat them first.  I've also grown cucumbers this year at the request of #1 son.  I suppose if we had more than one plant, we'd be able to can pickles.  One cucumber every other day is ripening.  That is enough for an addition to a salad.  I have a zucchini plant that keeps blooming but I haven't seen any fruit yet.  In the back yard I have a spaghetti squash coming in volunteer!  I'd love to see it it produce.  I love spaghetti squash!
