~Apparently we've had "below normal" temps for the last 8 months. This week is going to make up for it!! This is the weather prediction for the next week.
~Just as a reference for those who think in Fahrenheit: 33C = 91.4F
That is about 20 degrees to warm for me. I know - there are many people who have been waiting for this warm (hot, humid, sticky, headachy) weather, but I'm not one of them.
~I bought some new soap from Bovine Bubbles and Hogwash. It's Clean Cotton. This is a wonderful gentle scent. If you have trouble with strong scented soap - this is for you! I think even Brad would like this one. I had just finished the Earth Child soap I was using, will definitely get that one again. Cara's soap lasts forever!! That's a good thing when you're paying for it, but not a good thing when you have 20 bars of soap to try. LOL
I mentioned in a post a while back that I had bought Cara's Bug Lotion. We absolutely LOVE it!! Will not leave the house in the evening without it. By far the best Bug Lotion we've ever tried.
~Made this awesome Quiche on morning for breakfast!! The recipe can be found at Mennonite Girls Can Cook. I love this blog!! You can never have too many recipes. I realized that it wasn't Brad's favorite by the amount of ketchup he was putting on it. But I loved it and will make it again just for me! After all - I'm special too! LOL
~Did get some pickles made yesterday!! They are dill pickles. Wouldn't you know it - the weather gets hot and I have canning to do.
~One big project I have this summer is painting the shop. The 2 sides you can't see in the picture are done (except for the peak at the back). I started this end as you can tell. Apparently I will be painting the peaks from the bucket of the tractor. That should be fun - NOT! Brad parked the trailer beside the shop so I don't have to do as much from the step ladder.
~I came across this amazing shop on Etsy called TyeJ. I've admired Tye's paintings for awhile and contacted him this week about having his mini on the sidebar of my blog. He agreed and will also be having a give away on my other blog in October!! Can hardly wait to find out where his inspiration and ideas come from! He also has a BLOG that is brand new. This is my favorite painting in his shop:
