This summer has flown by and I have not posted once. First half of the summer was busy with softball practices and games. The last half has been consumed with canning the garden (salsa - lots of salsa, zucchini- even more than the salsa). We have had several prayer quilts the last half of the summer also. I was asked to quilt a t-shirt quilt a friend did for her daughter. The biggest thing this summer is I decided to start a little business. The name is "Quilted Memories & Embroidery". I am offering services to make t-shirt & memory quilts as well as custom embroidery.
I can't believe that DD #4 started 7th grade - OMG! Where has the time gone. I am freaking out that in 5 short years she will graduate high school and go off to college. I am very proud of her, she tried out for the 7th grade vollyball team and was selected for the Junior Varsity. I am not sure where the athletic gene came from. Must of been a recessed gene!
I have so enjoyed reading blogs, many many blogs. I love the crafting blogs, the cooking blogs and the blogs that speak about their faith. These blogs all challenge me. I am now taking the challenge, one challenge at a time. The first thing is planning menus for my families meals each week. The thing that has frustrated me the most is at 4:45pm everyday I didn't know what I was making for dinner. So last Saturday, August 22nd, I planned the meals for the week.
Monday - Grilled Lemon Chicken & Tabbouleh - Pampered Chef cookbook
Steamed Broccli and Yellow Squash (something else our garden produced in abundance)
Tuesday - Tacos, Spanish Rice, Applesauce
Wednesday - Bake Potatos, Carrots
Thursday - Chicken Fried Rice
Friday - Pork Chops, Mashed Potatos, Sauteed Asian Broccoli Slaw
Saturday - Leftovers
Sunday - Talapia (not sure how I am making it yet), rice, green beans, rolls.
So this catches almost everything up.
Blessing all, Leslie
PS It has taken me two days to post this. I am trying to post a slideshow of pics from Photobucket, but can't get it to work. I give up.
PSS Never give up! I got it. Yeah!
