For today, August 20 ... I'm back!! I had every intention of blogging all summer, but between adoption stuff, entertaining the boys (aka living at the pool), vacations, and life in general, my brain was just on constant overload. I sat down in front of the computer a few times and stared blankly at the screen for a while before realizing that I had nuthin. :) Luckily I kept taking pictures of food, so I have fun stuff saved up for you!
Outside my window... We had a few cooler days in the 70's and it felt heavenly! One day even had a hint of that Fall chill in the breeze, but today we're back up to 80's and sunny. I may be imagining things, but the sunshine is starting to feel different, less scorching and more mellow. One more month of summer!!

We have an appointment today to talk to a doctor who is looking over her medical file for us, and are waiting until then to make an official decision, BUT things are looking extremely positive! Just a few days from now I might have a HUGE announcement for you!

In the kitchen... I have to admit, not much has been happening in my kitchen lately. There is something about summer, maybe it's those 90 degree days, that kinda kills my cooking and baking desires. We've eaten lots of pancakes and fried egg sandwiches this summer. :)
I am looking forward to... Uh, Scotland, obviously, Fall, knowing for sure who our little girl is, going to the cabin next weekend just for fun, 6 months of free school days, travel to China, naptime... many things. :)
Around the house... We've had some major house projects this summer!! First of all, I gave my front flower bed a complete makeover, but that will get its own post. Second, we moved our boys downstairs into the big study-type-room that had a wall open to the TV room. They needed more space! Their old room will be transformed into their little sister's room. In the process of planning the best way to close up that wall, The Geologist decided to expand the project, close up the weird triangle-shelf-hole thing behind the TV, AND open up the stair wall. All of the construction is done, now we just need to paint. Currently it's just sitting there waiting for us to summon up some motivation, ha!
