Summer

Standard

Has it been a month since I’ve blogged? Summer flies! Been busy around here, but not had many completed projects to share. Here’s some of what my family has been up to.

cherry-ice-creamMade homemade cherry ice cream for a rainy but fun 4th of July. (Add 1 cup chopped fresh or frozen cherries plus 1/2 tsp almond extract to your favorite vanilla ice cream recipe.)

texas 2013 (4)Drove almost 1000 miles to Fort Worth, Texas, with my mom and two kids to visit my aunt. Had a great time relaxing and listening to my son call my aunt “Nana’s sister” while she equipped them to ride horses, rope each other, and stay away from cacti. Then had to drive almost 1000 miles back–eek.

green-bedBought two unfinished bed frames, two unfinished dresses, two metal nightstands, and two tiny tables at IKEA to outfit the room that will be shared by Worth and the new baby. Put them all together, stained and sealed the dressers and beds (green!), and am still working on pulling it all together in a cute shared room.

push-popDrove out to the Kentucky Renaissance Fair, where we ate not-so-historically-accurate snacks and discovered that Renaissance=fairies, for some bewildering volume of the participants. (But it was fun anyway.)

embroidered-bibTurned some plain IKEA bibs into personalized baby gifts for some friends with my embroidery machine.

Hope your summer is fun-filled too!
