Picture Project

I stayed very busy this last week. So busy I let taking pictures every day slip my mind. I did take a few and I'm happy to share them. I'm in a hurry to schedule this post so I can get to bed, therefore, I didn't take time to edit. Please forgive me.

This picture was actually from a week or more ago. I forgot to post it back then, but it just looks so cool and yummy, I couldn't pass it up. Too bad you weren't here...I would have cut you a piece of angel food, spooned on some fresh berries, and plopped on the whipped cream.

Last Sunday EZ DAZE had a cookout. I think it was a pre-memorial day even. Hamburgers, hot dogs, some pot luck, mingling, and entertainment--a nice break from the mundane.



One day I cooked turkey stakes on the grill. Marinated in a garlic and her marinade, grilled over a hot flame, oh they were moist and yummy.

Every morning this week when I stepped outside, there were diamonds on the grass. Sparkling in the sun, dew drops fascinate me.

Oh yeah, I almost forgot. I did a lot of laundry this week. Or at least it seemed like I did. I had to get into the "penny jar" to find enough change to do all my loads.
Counting and rolling pennies. My life is always such an adventure!

I spent almost an entire day constructing a super simple dress that, according to the instruction sheet, was supposed to take an hour to put together. I knew I would wear it a lot, sitting around the camper in this humid Mississippi heat. And now...I'm on my way to northern Wyoming. (I know you can't see me, but I'm rolling my eyes, big time.)
I think my next sewing project might need to be a jacket.

The other day I sat and rolled $32 worth of pennies. Every now and then a person just has to do that, I guess.

Ida,
I guess so...I try to do it more often than you though. If I had that many pennies, I'd just take them to the bank and let them dump them in their little counting machine. lol I'm lazy that way!

I recently took all my coins to the store and dumped them into the coin counter. I think I left with about $75.

Praying WY turns out to be a big blessing for you. Have safe travels my friend.

I am sure that at some time you will be in a place to wear the dress. It looks really nice. Praying as you drive across America.

Oh yeah, The strawberry shortcake looks very good. Makes me want to go and get some and make one myself.
