It's been awhile

since I posted something, I've been a little busy but today I haven't done much, I didn't sleep well last night so I have been dragging today.

I did finish a book the other day, I read DragonSpell by Donita K. Paul, I've started the second in the series (there are 5) DragonQuest. They are good fantasy type books, I think they are good reads for the summer anyway.
Hopefully I will sleep better tonight and feel better tomorrow and get something done!

A Surprise! A Cookbook!

I was so surprised when I got a letter saying I would be getting a recipe published in an upcoming Gooseberry Patch cookbook! My recipe for Mom's Spaghetti & Meatballs will be in the upcoming Rush-Hour Recipes, I will get a free copy in January 2012! Think I will submit a couple more recipes to them now.

I encourage anyone reading this to submit recipes to Gooseberry Patch, if they publish your recipe in one of their cookbooks they will send you a free copy of the cookbook. Can't beat that. I love Gooseberry Patch!

I got a couple more 12x12 layouts finished yesterday to make a total of 10 so far this month!

Today Lori, Gabriel & Kique are coming to spend the night, can't wait to see that baby boy!

Scraping Update

Yesterday was the 4th of July, we had some yummy grilled burgers and I made vanilla ice cream, it was SO good!
The past couple of days I have gotten my scrappin mojo back and completed 4 layouts and 2 pocket pages and I have another LO in the works - had to stop to work on those burgers/ice cream! Hopefully today I'll get to complete that.

5. Love is in the voices of my grandchildren.

6. I've never been to submarine races.

7. And as for the weekend, tonight I'm looking forward to a yummy hamburger, tomorrow my plans include grocery shopping and Sunday, I want to attend church, relax and read a book in the afternoon!
