Summer is in full swing.  We are getting a bit of a heat wave so trying to find things for the kids to do indoors at times has been high on the list.
The other day we invested in a telescope so they can observe the birds and creatures, and also we are looking forward to checking out the stars. We love space and it's  mysteries so we are excited!
We have been making a lot of fused bead pictures and watercolors. The kids have been dying to learn how to embroider.  I had my hesitations, with the needle and such, but I couldn't resist their earnestness to learn.
So the each drew a picture and I taught them how to stitch. They instantly loved it.  They love to sit on the couch and listen to a show while they stitch away.  It's a nice quiet time activity as well.
I have been reading a lot this summer.  The kids always take part in the library summer reading, so I've been on the reading kick as well.  I love a good book.
I am now reading "The Girl Who Played With Fire."  Really enjoying it.
One book that I recently finished was "The Help." I'm not kidding when I say, this book was just so excellent.  If you haven't read it, please do.  After I read the book, I watched the movie, and yes, equally as awesome!
Last week I was trying to come up with some new dishes to make for dinner.  My husband is on a no-carb diet, so usually I try to keep a meat main dish in mind.  He came up with the idea for Chicken Cordon Bleu.  I found this recipe.  Okay, its was just so delicious.  The wine cream sauce, well lets just say, you could swim in it!  Make it!
Thank you to the sweet gals who left sweet well wishes.  I really do appreciate it!

I was able to get some of my mini's out this week.  I was really thinking about grilling and cold drinks, and of course yummy summertime desserts.
See ya soon!
