I crack myself up sometimes!
As I look back on June and wonder where it went, most of it was busy with happy projects and events. Our younger son began a new job and our older one has been learning the joys of home remodeling. Lesson one being that however long you think the job will take, double that amount of time.
Hubby has been teaching him, working by his side which meant I've had the Prince of Sweetness more than usual this month. Gosh darn, that was a hard job.
A few days of this month were spent painting for a friend. For a look at a castle wall VBS project that I painted, click here. Another day was spent visiting a quilt shop and a yarn store with a different friend. It wasn't going to be an all-day event, but a haz-mat situation closed a freeway and we spent 2 hours traveling what should have taken 15 minutes. That was the day before making the Teal Ombre cake (see previous post). It really has been an interesting month.
An annual fireworks display in my city was scheduled last night. Rain postponed that event, but not early enough to cancel the cleaning frenzy that occurred late yesterday afternoon. The fireworks can be seen from our yard and we normally have 30+ friends and relatives here to ooh and ahh. Even though this is very casual and we ask people to bring their favorite beverage and a folding lawn chair if they have one, I still have a Company's Coming! mindset and try to straighten up the house. If we're very careful between now and the rescheduled event, I won't have as much to do.
If we keep the lids on these two containers (and our hands out of them!), I will still have snacks for the fireworks. These are "no-brainers" which are perfect for a hectic week.
