The last day of June. This morning’s post will be a quick one. Yesterday was kind of stressful with travel, and I have a semi migraine this morning. So I’m just doing the minimum. Not sure I’ll be making it to church today. But at least we had fun celebrating my niece’s 1st birthday.
We don’t have any major plans this week. We’ll be doing the usual 4th of July stuff – parade and craft fair.
We did manage to do some strawberry picking last week, so I have to deal with those. And I have some potential baking projects – golden grahams, goldfish, amaranth bars, rice bars and squash scones. We’ll see how the week goes.

Thanks so much for coming to the party yesterday!! It was nice to see you all. We’ll keep you in our prayers, as we always do. 🙂
Nice job on the strawberry picking! That is a possibility for us today, too… Just depends on how we feel and how quickly we get things in order and the garden weeded.
I haven’t given any thought to our meals yet this week. We’ll eat leftovers from the party a few nights and leftovers from the 4th of July a night or two, as well… So it’ll be an easy week dinner-wise, I think. I’m hoping to check quite a few things off my to-do list (both in and out of the kitchen) that have been out off with the party prep… Canning cherry salsa, weeding the veggie garden, weeding and mulching the raspberries and blackberries, putting stones around the firepit, cleaning out Bristol’s closet, and if I’m really lucky, maybe I’ll convince Kevin to finally finish our kitchen floor so I can paint the trim! 🙂
Put off, not out off. 🙂
That sounds like an ambitious list! Are you working all week except the 4th? Hope you have a good week!
You’ll have to tell me about the new baby-sitter too.
Kevin and I are both off on Thursday and I am off Friday. I got half the veggie garden weeded today, plus got the house and yard back in order. Kevin vacuumed the pool and got a few other random things done outside, but he has been pretty hungover, so hasn’t been too ambitious today. :). And I put most of Bristol’s new toys together. She and Carson had a blast in her water table! I’m hoping to get back outside after dinner for another hour to finish up the weeding in the veggie garden… But we will see how long baths and prepping for tomorrow take first. 🙂
