lately...




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.  

Oh well...

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

I love finding new cousins on Ancestry. I came from a very small family and was not allowed any connection with my dad's family while growing up. It's been quite an experience finding them on Ancestry and even meeting some in person.

I am seriously intrigued by your reference to your "grandmommy's pig pickin cake" -- what on earth is that? And yes, Blogger is driving everyone nuts with their changes to how comments work. I read on one blog that Blogger is trying to fix the situation but who knows?

I'm hoping blogger figures thing out with the comments..it's so annoying.

There are some fascinating deadlines in this article but I don’t know if I see all of them middle to heart. There's some validity but I'll take hold opinion until I look into it further. Good article , thanks and we want more! Added to FeedBurner as effectively online casino slots
