Foodie Friday and What I have Been Doing!

It's Friday and more!!!!!

Foodie Friday!

Welcome to Foodie Friday hosted
by the very talented Gollum at Designs by Gollum.

Please visit everyone, they each have made something wonderful to share!

Teriyaki Chicken!
I made something simple this week as I am tired from trying to catch up with everything still!

And I had The Husband cut up a cantaloupe.
Simple dinner tonight.
Othe things that I have been up to is planting my garden that I had to put off a bit because of the garage sale.

I planted this one recently. I just hope it will last through this coming winter. Your have to remember that we reached -26 degrees this past winter. I lost 3 rose bushes to that!

I have planted lettuce, bell peppers, eggplant, pumpkins, green beans, acorn squash, zucchini, onions, cucumbers and a perennial garden.

We have also been BBQing!

We also went to our daughters fun fair at the elementary school. We bought $10 worth of tickets and got 12 tickets.
We won a garden package....


I will visit with everyone over the weekend!

I am back for Foodie Friday!

Who doesn't love Friday!!!!

Fried Eggplant!!!
Look weird but it tastes wonderful!

This is one of my favorites that I have been making for the past 20 years!
I never make it the same way twice either!

Front Porch

Believe it or not, this is my front porch!
Sorry for the blurry pictures!

The yellow chair is one of my favorite places to sit and watch the world go by on a Sunday.

I had been thinking all winter what this room was missing and I decided it was curtains.

I wanted the feel of another room and not just a porch.

I haven't had a chance to sit here yet but I will!


Still trying to catch up!

If your wondering where I have been, it has been in my basement trying to fold laundry (as of yesterday 12 loads, with eight more still need doing!). I am so far behind in everything I could cry! I have NEVER been this far behind, nor have I been this guilt ridden over it! The president of our booster added my hours up and I worked over 60+ hours in 9 days.

I am still trying to get my veggie and perennial garden in, planning my girls birthday party and getting ready for the grandparent invasion at the end of June.

Last Friday we went to our son's Fine Art Festival and had a great time!

There he is playing his trumpet!!!!
He's wonderful!

One of his drawings!!!

This was supposed to be my chicken head, but someone wants to buy it from him!
His first piece is going to be sold!!1

This was not my son's, but I thought it was beautiful!

This one is MINE! He gave it to me!!!

As we were leaving I had to take a picture of the moon!

I will see everyone for Foody Friday!!!!


I am done!

The garage sale is over and done with and I am very tired!

We had a great sale and made more money then last year!

I will not be heading this thing next year! I am behind on cleaning, laundry, gardening and family time. This coming week I will be catching up with everyone and everything that I have ignored for the last couple of weeks.

Here are some photos of the sale.

We sold this couch to a very nice older couple.

And last is Cheryl (president of Booster), Jan (a wonderful friend) and ME (how tired do I look?)!

One very happy puppy!
