Went for a walk with my hubby and the pups. I have managed to go 3 days in a row!

Now I am working on menus for our Youth Groups annual service conference. I can't believe this is the eighth year! I am back organizing the meals (lunch and dinner Monday to Friday) for about 30 - 40 per meal and it feels great. I have lots and lots of help!

I am resisting the temptation to make meatballs after promising my planning partner that I would buy them. We are doing them three ways for one meal - sweet and sour, stroganoff and marinara for subs!

Oh! I found a roasted pineapple and habanero salsa that is divine on meatballs over rice. Not too hot! I was amazed.

Is it a product or a recipe? If it is a product would we get it here?

It is a product, I found it at Costco... RobertRothschild.com the ingredient list is fairly simple and doesn't have anything nasty in it.

I'm just relaxing now out on the patio, with a glass of wine and a purry kitty in my lap. Had a busy day cleaning, still working on the den. Measured all the windows in the house today for new blinds, hoping to get them ordered this coming week.
Thanks Cheryl

Sounds like you have had a busy day!

What types of blinds are you going for?

This may be just the nudge I need to get myself out of the house for a walk this morning before it heats up.

Just waking up. Its been a busy weekend. Two late nights with the band. Up and at 'em early for house chores....I am groggy. In less than two hours I will be hurtling down a canyon on a zip line. That should wake me up....

I have my clothes laid out. As soon as the tem reaches 69 or above, I will go downstairs to the patio and sit with my needlework. Now if everyone leaves me alone....

It never fails. Everytime I sit there, someone comes along and wants to talk. All I want to do is sit and sew. QUIETLY! And I am not one to be rude and tell them to bug off. Why oh why, can't I be as nasty as other folks.

You need to get yourself an Ipod with the ear phones. It works for my teeneage daughter. She can sit there seeming totally oblivious to the world around her, looking totally unaproachable. She has conditioned me to leave her alone.....
