First, I want to tell you how touched I was by all your comments last time. I felt a big cyber hub from all of you that I really needed. Meantime, your prayers must be working because he has had one interview and one call this past week. We shall see! I'm crossing my fingers that he has a job soon.
We've been busy keeping the occupied this summer with our list. It's gotten a little challenging since we're trying to be budget friendly. Last Saturday we rode our bikes on a local bike trail, had a picnic and played in the park. Price-?? FREE-- Love that! Yesterday, we took them swimming a local pool and it cost around seven dollars for the kids and me. We also went bowling for about an hour for around twenty dollars. I would love to know of any ideas that you might have that cost little or next to nothing that you do with your family. I've been reading Watermelons and Fireflies too. That book is chalk-full of great ideas!
We even had a guest on our picnic, who liked croutons and pistachios.
Here's what else has been happening at our house, we have veggies. Our garden was flooded out twice. Hence, the reason our 6 rows of beans and corns is so sporadic. I thought you might want a peak. We've been getting zucchini. Our tomatoes and cucumbers are doing nicely and I hope to be pickling and canning them soon!
Here's our little patch
Zucchini, cukes and tomatoes
This little baby was peaking out of the soil so I picked it. It's pretty small. This was one of the smaller plants anyway. Does anyone know when beets are ready or when to pick them?? I'm one of those few people who just love beets so I can't wait to get them made too.
Have a great day!
Thanks again for your heartfelt comments.
