School Days

School begins on Monday, I headed back this week trying to help get things in order in the library.
I went and purchased a couple new capri pants and a shirt or two. I got some index card dividers and some new sharpies.

I'm ready. 

Gone are the days of new back packs, shiney new pencils, Lisa Frank, Hello Kitty, and Looney Tunes. 

I miss those days sometimes.

How Inconvenient!

We've  got more than 30 people coming to our house this weekend. Seven of them are staying the weekend.

I was planning on making enchiladas, burritos, and all the fixings. 

How things change. All because of a quick turn of the cart and my finger getting stuck. 



Now a taco bar, with help from the guests. I can't use my right hand. 

My RIGHT hand!

It's amazing how hard it is having just a little broken finger. 

And painful, wow! 

Oh well, time to take it easy for awhile.


The End of July

It's gone, the month of July. 
I finished several projects that I've wanted to accomplish this summer and feel great about it!
We've had lots of extended family time 
And am so glad we finally live close to family.

We had a hailstorm.

My garden is producing tons (28 so far) of cucumbers!

We went to the zoo.

I put trim around the huge mirror.

Took lots of walks. I love Iowa!

Put up LOTS of corn.


Played with Frank!

Found a tiny frog in my garden.

More cucumbers, and squash.

Cleaned and organized the garage.

Went to the racetrack.

Went shopping with my cousin!

Goodbye July, what a great month you were!
