Summer

I'm at the point in the summer where I can only keep up with the picking and watering, but not the weeding, and I've been so busy that I haven't blogged or uploaded pictures or anything! I planted too much summer squash (want some zucchini?) and every 2 or 3 days I'm picking a gallon of green beans. There are little melons growing and the corn is well on its way as well. We picked the first two big tomatoes this weekend to put on hamburgers. The herbs are also growing and I am going to try some pesto to use up some of this basil.

The three oldest kids have gone back to school for the year already (don't you love year-round school? :-)) so that gives me a little bit of peace during the day, but I realized this morning that this baby is due in just over 2 months! Holy Cow!

Frugalgirl 1 turned 8 last month and was baptized this weekend so last week I cleaned house and sewed a dress for her to wear after the baptism. There's nothing like some good old-fashioned procrastination, huh? :-)

On another topic, my dishwasher has decided to take a vacation so I've been hand-washing dishes. Except for the back-log that is currently on the counter, I think that I'll stay on top of the dishes better this way. When I get a second to breathe I'll try and troubleshoot the dishwasher. I think it's just the spray arm on the top rack--clogged or something.
