another Week gone by

Wow another week has gone by, still not sewing much, just can't get motivated except for some birthday blocks in the Ohioquilters group and Ross County guild blocks for our 2008 raffle quilt.

I'll blame my lack of motivation on the weather, yep summer is here. Our garden is coming along nicely, already eating cucumbers. Nothing like picking fresh cucumbers, peeling it, put alittle bit of catalina dressing and eat away. Tomatoes should be ripe enough in another week or so. I can't wait for them to get ripe, I love getting fresh tomatoes, wiping the dirt off, put alittle bit of salt & have at it. So yummy especially when still warm from the vine. Nothing like a store bought one, that is for sure. We planted pole beans this year & have them on a 4' tall fence in which they've already surpassed & now are growing back down. This is the first time we've planted them I hope they are good coooked up. Our zucchini is coming along nice too, already have a couple tiny ones. Hope this year to can some, haven't done any canning for a long time but am thinking about it this year. My flowers are blooming & the hummingbirds are zooming around. I put a picture of one of the hummingbirds I caught with the camera. So relaxing listening & watching them buzz around. Also a picture of one of my flowers i planted, which I'm considering making this into a wallhaning using fusible applique & maybe embellishing too. I thought it would be very pretty.
We are still looking for some land to buy here somewhere in ross county or close to ross county. Just haven't found what we are looking for at the right price. I'm sure it will come when it is suppose to, if not I'll be content with staying here on our little 1 acre place.
We finished up vacation bible school last week. That was lots of fun, the kids had a great time, & finally my oldest son has taken an interest in going to church which is such a blessing. So we are going back to church more often which is nice, now if I can talk my husband into going. Which will happen in his time. My oldest is doing driving which is going along nice, so far no close calls, so I'm happy with that.
So leaving you with a recipe that is wonderful to snack on or take to a get together.
This is so yummy~~~
