Hello to everyone! It was a busy weekend here...lots more time spent in the kitchen for me. Salsa, zuchinni relish and zuchinni bread were some of the things made other than the mess. Wow..you really do make a mess when you can..at least I do. When I get finished with the actual canning..then you get to the not so fun part of cleaning everything up :( Yesterday and today I have just tried to take it easy. We officially start school tomorrow..so I felt like I needed to rest a little.
I got the nicest card last week from Marcy...she sent me a card to let me know she was thinking of me. After Mark didn't get a good call saying he would be starting after the much anticipated interview..I had been pretty bummed to say the least. Even though..they did say not to get upset that they would be hiring some more after school started..I am trying to keep my chin up and concentrate on that...Marcy's card stated that when life gives you lemons..make lemonade. I am trying to do just that...It was full of wonderful Bible verses and recipes. I would love to make a lemon meringue pie..I've never made one!! What a sweetheart Marcy is! She is very thoughtful and helpful to everyone she meets. I'm so very sure that Heaven is smiling down on her :) Thank You Marcy!!
I posted previously that we had been busy painting...so I thought I would share a couple of pics...
And this is the Canna that I'd been anxiously waiting to open....isn't it pretty? I gave Mrs. Cow something to really smile about :)
I just realized I didn't take a picture of the shutters...duh!! Well, they're grey now too..They look a lot better now than they did. I'm very happy with the results. Now my next big project is hopefully going to be to finish things in the kitchen. I just love the kitchen shown here...actually I love a lot of the rooms on here...but be sure to scroll down and check the kitchen out..it's beautiful!! (Eileen..this made me think of you!)
For all of you village pen-pal r's....I would love to hear from all of you that participated. It would just be nice to know that everyone sent and received :) I'll be mailing mine out tomorrow (So, Lori...keep your eye out for a card :) And if any of you haven't met Lori...please check out her blog and get to know her as she's participating in the pen-pal exchange :) and will eventually be your partner!
It's been scorchingly humid and hot here...It's stormed here off and on the last couple of days. I am hoping that it will cool off a little tomorrow. The horrible humidity has been giving me the worst headache. It always does...and the rain makes my joints ache horridly..I've been that way since I was a child. I guess it's just something you sort of get used to..sort of..
Tomorrow will be kind of busy...but I'll try to prepare a little something tonight for tomorrow..
I hope your week so far has been a good one...and that tomorrow will be even better :)
There is no distance too great between friends..for love gives wings to the heart.
Friends are angels...following you through life.
With Love, Jerelene
