A "Day" of Sunshine....

It actually cleared up for the most part yesterday. Partly cloudy with an hour here and there of REAL sunshine, but clear and warm enough that I got to hang a few items of laundry out to dry, and I got to do a bit of garden-work. Namely, I pulled turnips. I won't go into detail because I want to share the gardening pics I've got, when I do go into detail. I didn't get to my compost bin, though. *sigh*

Anyway. Mainly I just wanted to let y'all know that I'm still around. *grin* We've been so busy that it's hard to find the time to post, though.

Oh, and on Saturday I made some pretzels (big puffy yummy ones!) from an Auntie Anne's pretzel kit Mom gave me for Christmas a couple of years ago. I kept forgetting about it in the back of my cabinets. Finally, after having several Auntie Anne's pretzels while in Spokane, I was determined to use it. DANG are they yummy!!! I've been rationing out one a day, though I could easily eat 2 or 3 at a time. I want them to last.

Ok. I've gotta get heading to work. It's going to be a long day today as I only got about 7 hours of sleep last night, after staying up till 2 working on my garden-fresh produce. And I know that I've got the end-of-the-day Pick-up duties at work tonight. I'll probably be dead on my feet by the time I get home. *wry smile*

Oh. Tay's got the first game in her soccer tournament tonight at 8:20. Prayers for safety, if you wouldn't mind. We've got rain again which is going to make for slick grass, and some of the play gets rather rough. (Esp. with one or two teams that have girls twice the size of OUR team's girls.) I don't really care whether they win or lose the game, just prayers that it stays safe and fun.

Have a Blessed Day!

I've never had a pretzel before.

Hope Tey's game went well and there weren't any accidents.

I have never had a pretzel, what are they like?

And I hope all went well at the game!

I hope Tay's game went well and that there is more sunshine in your near future.

I'll trade your weather for ours. It is sunny pretty much every day but maybe 100- 110 degrees! Sometimes higher since we are in this heat spell. I'd like a couple of nice cloudy, cool days and some rain.

Glad to hear that your getting sunshine although we are just the opposite.
Lot of sunshine no rain.

Busy? You don't Know busy. Working on the barn I started on my flat farm three years ago! I am determined to finish it and move on to unfinished project #2.

Going to post on my blog about what I have been up to.

Just stopping by to say hi. Hope Tay won her game and you've had more sunshine!

I hope Tay is ok and that she doesn't do any permanent damage.

The plants look great! I had no idea that Swiss Chard could be so coloful.

I hope you hear about the interview soon.

Boy you really have been busy!
