Lately, you can find me in my little patio garden, monitoring the progress of my baby cucumbers (only 1 so far, but tons of blooms!) and the tomatoes; picking jalapenos and blueberries; or admiring the local wildlife and my flowers.
Or you can find me in my studio, playing with new supplies, exploring new lessons in art making and getting my hands dirty.
I'm not sure which one I have the most fun with, the garden or the art. Both are top of my list right now.
Of course, all of this is dependent on the weather. I'm outside early and late but spend the middle inside with the blinds closed to keep the worst of the heat out. My air conditioning is not working and hasn't for almost two weeks. It isn't so bad right now, but I'm hoping it will be fixed before the major heat waves come in.
Another place you can find me is my neighbor's kitchen. I've been helping her with cooking for company she's had for three weeks and a bridge game she has today. I've cooked my grandmommy's pig pickin cake, homemade spaghetti sauce (2 batches), 3 batches of caramel layer squares, grilled chicken, something my neighbor calls "trash" but is like a chex mix type of thing, and honestly, I can't remember what else. I have one more day to cook (Sunday) for my mum's birthday, but it is basically hamburgers/hot dogs on the grill with sides.
One thing you won't find me doing, is worrying about that pesky issue I talked about in my last post. I decided not to approach my dad about taking a test, but my brother has said he would do it, so if I can ever get it done and sent in, it will be interesting to see what the results show.
I have contacted several of the "2nd cousins" ancestry says I match to in an effort to find out how we are connected. One of them replied very quickly and gave me a name, but it isn't one I've ever heard of before. I'm waiting to hear back from another.
I'm going to go back to my arting and my gardening...
What have you been up to lately? Any cooking/baking? Arting? Writing? Seen any good movies? :-)
Thanks for stopping by for a read...
love & blessings
PS...I'm having a lot of trouble with Bloggers comments, not getting email notifications and can't figure out how to respond to each one. But I'm reading them and really appreciate you taking the time to comment. I'm trying to figure a work around. So please don't think I'm ignoring you. :-) xoxo
