Miscellany Tuesday (because I forgot yesterday)

Yesterday was a typical Monday with lots of thoughts rolling around in my head to get down on my blog;  however, it was a atypical Monday in that Brian was home from work all day – so that threw things off-balance a bit and I didn’t get much blogging (or anything) done.  So, I’m posting my Miscellany a day late ---

{1} We had a nice weekend.  On Saturday, we had a picnic/cook-out at my aunt & uncle’s house.  Their yard is more like a park – there is so much to see as you walk through it.  Ashley took a ton of random pictures. 

summer 068 {2} Last Tuesday, after violin lessons, Gracie and I ran to Michael’s to get the supplies to make these t-shirts (I think they turned out pretty cute).  And they were super simple to make too.  We couldn’t resist and even bought the matching hats.  Anyone with black hair knows it’s best to keep that dark hair  covered in the sun!

{3} It’s a stinkin’ hot 98 degree day here in PA!  What’s up with that?!  Last week was relatively cool – so much so, in fact, that we didn’t run our a.c.’s all week.  This week is another story. 

{4} I have gotten no further with my lesson plans than I was last week.  Shame, shame, shame on me!  I did make arrangements to pick up Ashley’s greek materials in a few weeks, though – once I have that, I’ll make a post about our 11th grade school choices for this coming year and I’ll also start on Ashley’s lesson plans. 

{5} Ian is screaming and saying that he wants to watch Blue’s Clues.  Hmmm . . . I do believe it’s time for a nap. 

{6} I bought a 1/2 bushel of peaches last week and we’ve been eating lots of peach foods.  Last night we tried this cake and hated it.  I guess I don’t like the taste of nutmeg very much.  Brian liked it though – so I guess he’ll be gaining some weight this week (since he’ll have to eat it all single-handedly). I threw the recipe away – that’s how much we didn’t like it. 

{7} I was going to attempt making scones today, but I don’t have all the ingredients I need and did I mention that it’s really hot outside?  I don’t want to have to go back out there!

{8} I got a new coffee pot and I set the timer on it last night so that my  coffee would be made when I got downstairs – all I needed to do was grab my coffee and my Bible and head out to the front porch to read my 12 pages.  This could very well be a new habit!

{9} Sometimes I get disgusted with Facebook.  But, today I reconnected with a long lost cousin and have been enjoying catching up with her  today.  Sometimes I truly believe that God uses things like FB to bring about good things.

{10} Did I say it was 98 degrees?  Make that 99!  Oh I seriously need to find something to make for supper that doesn’t require adding much heat to this house!  Ugh!

{11} This morning I called  the doctor’s office to schedule a physical for Ashley – she needs it  before she can get her permit.  How did I get a 16 year old?! 

5f2bc89629255fd4407167812a820f01.image.150x104 {12} For weeks, I’ve been trying to select a braided rug for my living room.  They sell them at a local craft shop and I had my heart set on one called “random” simply because I thought that, over the years, it would match with anything.  When I went to finally order it, though, it wasn’t available in the large size that I wanted/need.  So, I looked at about a million styles and couldn’t decide.  I finally bought a small one to bring home and look at for a few weeks.  Today I called and ordered this rug in the 8’3”x11’3” size. 

{13} Guinea pigs LOVE watermelon. 

{14} I think the heat is getting to my brain.  I need to stop this miscellany before it gets out of hand!

Hi Heidi
I enjoyed reading your miscellany. My daughter used to love Blue's Clues! Hope it cools down a bit for you soon. For me 99 degress would not be fun. Good luck with the scones. I could eat one right now. Thanks for your comment. I hope you can visit England one day.

It's hot here in Maine too. We've been running our AC and fans pretty much non-stop for the last few days. LOVE those t-shirts! Even though it's past the 4th, we may still make some. Very cool. Enjoyed your randomness. ;-)
