Summer Business


This summer has been jam packed with outings, things to do, things to see, and more. It has been so fun to be a little more mobile than last summer, and to have Butterfly enjoy some more things.

We've been to the splash park, the museums, the pool, the park, scrap booking with JeuJeu and his family, the farmer's market, the post office, the park, the store, the art supply store, the park, the mall, Juice's work, the park. We go to the park a lot.

Although with this hot and steamy weather we've been getting, the park is not an option. This week, the temps rose to over 100 degrees, with at least 90% humidity. They set a new record at Regan National Airport for the hottest day ever. 103! With the heat index (is that the humidity or what?) it felt like around 115 degrees. Needless to say, we've been watching a lot of Finding Nemo in the house.

I'm hoping that the weather will break a little for our county fair that is going on next week. I plan on going to children's day because all kids under 12 get in free. Juice works across the street from the fair grounds and will join us there for dinner and rides. Maybe a better way would be rides then dinner.

My kid concerts are over, which I'm sad for. I don't know what to do with myself on Mondays now! I was going to go to the park with Vinny and his mom but she is pregnant and sick and well, I don't deal with that right now. Not with the whole miscarriage, infertility, you-don't-know-how-lucky-you-are-and-I-don't-want-to-hear-about-it-at-all-so-I-can-focus-on-yet-another-cycle feelings I'm having. I cry just thinking about it. (That could also be the hormones, man I hate these things!) Oh, I have started another blog to go through the infertility stuff but it is invite only. Please email me at safirecat at gmail dot com if you want an invite.

I am gearing up to also do a marathon cook with the lady I used to babysit for. We are going to make about 9 frozen meals that will hopefully be eatable. This is our first time doing this (for both of us!) so I'm not sure how it's supposed to go. But hopefully I will have 9 or eve 18 meals all frozen and put away for busy days.

I am also trying to add a little to our camping gear. I bought a dutch oven about a week ago and have been dying to use it! But Juice doesn't want me to use it on our front porch (we have no yard) so I have to find a table of some kind to set it on. Anyone have any ideas?

Cookbooks are my reading of choice right now. I have a frozen meal one, a dutch oven one, and a food storage one that I'm all trying to learn at once. Never mind that I don't even have one whit of food storage or idea on how this frozen meal thing is supposed to work or really, how to use a dutch oven. All I know is that these are things I want to know how to do eventually and I better do it sooner rather than later.

I feel like I have more to say, but can't figure out what. Oh well. Until next time!

  3. Can I have the link and password to your other blog? I can't remember if I already asked for it. :S
