PS I saw this cute quote today and loved it:
"Never apologize for being sensitive or emotional, It's a sign that you have a big heart, and that you are not afraid to let others see it. Showing your emotions is a sign of strength."

    Rain, rain, rain in our corner ... after having a frost this past Saturday night! I think most of our garden survived ... no courage to go in and check yet since it's been raining these last three days! Good thing I haven't planted my sweet potatoes yet!

Baby it's HOT Outside

Dealing with 90 degree temps and it's been hard to stay on top of things. We are hoping to install our window ACs today to help cool off our brick house. :)

Other things on the horizon: getting ready for the 4h fair in July. We are very active in 4h, and this is always a fun time. Also, the kids are getting ready for different camps over the summer: band camp, fc camp, and a code camp for the older ones. Add in soccer for my youngest for the next month, county 4h fair, and state fair in August, (and then football starting), we are BUSY in the summer. Also, 3 gardens to take care of!! :0)

That makes me tired just typing it all out! :0) Also, I've been doing several cleaning jobs and one gardening job, and I'm taking a class every week. Love keeping busy in the summer!!!

We're going to try to keep things simple in the kitchen, as it's HOT, and we're busy.

Meals this week:

Pork loin, spinach salad
Hoagie Sandwiches, raw veggies (carrots), fruit
salmon patties, salad, veggies
stuffed peppers in the crock pot? OR baked potato bar
walking tacos
Grill (hawaiian patties, hot dogs, hamburgers)
crock pot pork chops with rice, peas

What's new with you? I hope you are keeping busy.

Tonight my daughter and I attended a dog obedience class. It was AWESOME! We got lots of 1 on 1 with a wonderful trainer! So thrilled! Going back again next Thursday!


Love to all,

Dawn

    My youngest daughter did obedience classes with her dog in her teens, then she trained her as a therapy dog and passed the tests, so we used to visit nursing homes, Shriner's hospital, other places like that with Sasha. She was very smart and very loveable. Our dog Max reminds me a bit of her ... but he is just husband trained, but very obedient. He will heel with me without a leash very well. Have fun with it!

Rain Rain

We've had quite a bit of blah weather for planting and rain, but it's finally cleared. I'm waiting for the gardens to dry out so I can get some more things in the ground. :0)

I've been doing a couple of odd jobs cleaning/gardening, so that's been good for me.

Also we have been busy getting the school year finished up and trying to get some 4h projects started. :0)

Haven't done a great job planning this week but here's the rest of the week menu:

Thurs. - crock pot pork chops, carrots, ?
Fri. - chicken (salmon for hubby), baked potatoes, peas
Sat. - grill?
Sun. - pork loin

I hope everyone is doing ok!
