This week we have:
Blueberry Goat Cheese Salad
Blueberry Buttermilk Breakfast Cake
Blueberry Pie Bars
Outside my window... Sunny, warming up, quiet, clear blue sky... it will probably rain this afternoon, this has been the pattern for weeks. I'm not complaining, I love the rain! I just wish we could have an all-day rainy day once in a while. Instead of getting to 90 degrees before it rains. I'm ready for Fall! So is Tumblr it seems, you people are not helping!! :)

Apparently they just don't grow well here. No fair. Well, if I can't find them in the farmer's markets, or pick my own... might as well just use what I have! So I picked the four recipes I was most dying to try, and put them all in the same week! It's a blueberry bonanza!
A peek into my day... Today we're taking it easy. Calm and a bit lazy. Yesterday was packed! We had guests coming over for dinner, so I spent three hours getting dinner ready while The Geologist pitched in and tidied up... Dinner was a success, but the evening came to a screeching halt when Joe split his mouth on his headboard and I took him to the ER. Let me tell you, that is not how you want to send new friends home! He's fine, didn't even need stitches, but he's still sore today and we're all tired, so we're taking a breather. I swear, that boy's head (and face) is a magnet for hard objects!
Around the house... Our girl's furniture is almost finished! Only details left! When we find out her favorite colors (which will hopefully coordinate with the quilt my Mom made) we'll paint the top surfaces...
I am thankful... So thankful for our vacation! We had a wonderful time at the cabin, and The Geologist was on Mom duty so the boys and I could get out of each other's hair for a while. And it worked! I am refreshed and rejuvenated. Excited to cook and bake and blog and adventure again. I love my boys so dearly, and I love my "job", but I need to remember to take breaks now and then, or I get drained and overwhelmed, and it all stops being fun. Seeing my Mom and Dad was lovely, as always, and seeing my brother and his wife before they head off to the other side of the country. Who knows when I'll see them again!! I'll post all about it on our family blog later this week. Ah, it's nice to be back :)
I am thinking... We're going to make these last two weeks before school starts as full of classic summer fun as I can possibly manage! Time to tick a few more off the bucket list, try some crafts at home, build some forts, back to the splash park and the pool a few times...pack it full and finish off with a bang! Stephen's ready to go back, and Joe is excited and getting a little nervous, so I'll do my best to distract him. Two more weeks!
What is something you can't (or couldn't) wait to share with your kids? A favorite movie, or book, or musical artist... Favorite game, sport, vacation spot? Has to be from childhood! (Teens count :)
Oh!! And by the way!! I added Pinterest buttons to make life easier! Just run your cursor over any picture you want to pin, a Pinterest icon will appear in the top left corner, and pin it! If you want to just look at the picture larger, click in the middle of the picture. Took me forever to figure out how to do that! :)
Something fun, just because...
