Summer Blooms are Fading

I haven't planned very well this year in my garden, usually my annuals Marigolds, Cosmos, Bachelor Buttons are starting to bloom the end of July, beginning of August.  Other project came up and I ran out of time to throw out some seeds.

Going back to work and meal planning

Summer is coming to end and that means I go back to work.:/  It's kind of like I love my summers off, but I don't get a pay check during the time off, so I need to go back to work.:)

My summer has been kick back and our meals have been last minute planning or eating leftovers and alot of  hitting the grocery store every other day. I know crazy expensive right?  Long story short, we've not been on a real routine.

So I've been looking through my stacks of cookbooks and recipe tearouts to find some quick and easy meals.  It's time to get back into meal planning again.

I've been meal planning for quite awhile using an 2010 microsoft office excel program.  I made a monthly template that is made up with breakfast, am snack, lunch, pm snack, and supper Sunday through Saturday.

I also made a list meals my family likes and organized the meal lists by main dish.
Have a Great Day!

You Just got to love Summer time

I’m one of the fortunate that has summers off (however I don’t get a pay check during the summer either Sad smile).
August Balloon Festival

Working in my yard and reaping the beautiful flowers, working in my flower beds is very relaxing for me.

Grand children playing in sprinkler, monkeying around, and climbing trees.
This why I love summer.

August celebrations

Things to celebrate in my necks of the woods is 4th annual Balloon Festival.  I’ve been sleeping in to about 7:30, boy was it hard to get up and be at the take off file by 6:30



The first day the air was very still and the balloon didn’t get very high off the ground.  Their time frame was about 3 hours



It was a great weekend!

Do you have some  fun activities planned for August?

GrandMa Mode

With the grand kids here it is very hard to have time for being creative but I thought I let you know what I have been doing.

Last year my garden boxes were taken over by bind weed 

so I decided to dig the dirt out of the boxes and line the boxes with old carpet, I'd had been storing for a project like this.  Next I put new dirt mixed with two bales of peat-moss
So we will see how the garden does this year.
Have a Wonderful Day
