Now we just have to finish Abi's room downstairs, ie: finish scraping off the old texture, repair the walls, put in an egress window, trim and paint. That's all. Then I bought a dresser at DI for $15 yesterday that I'm going to refinish and double as a changing table. Plus I have a perennial garden to get ready in back of the house, prepare and plant my little vegetable garden boxes and clean out my flowerbed in the front. Not to mention rake the lawn and apply the humates. Whew!!! I'll try to update my blog a little more frequently but I can't promise anything.
Tal was sure that our "West Coast Prowler" was his car.
Our ward held a Pinewood Derby and Soup Supper Social. Being short on time, Kris and the kids bought a kit car and put it together. It was a pretty smoking "West Coast Prowler." As we didn't have a scale, all of the cars raced in the open division. Our car was eating up the competition until it got knocked off the stage and broke a wheel. After that it just careened down the track smashing into other cars. But everyone won a prize and Abi and Tal were happy with our screwdriver and gummy bears. For my part I made my Mexican Cheese Soup. It's always a big hit, even with the kids.
Mexican Cheese Soup
1 lb hamburger
1 onion, diced
1-2 Tbsp Taco Seasoning
1 quart diced tomatoes - I can my own, so probably 2 cans from the store
1 pint corn - canned or frozen
1/2 brick Velveeta cheese, diced into cubes
Milk to thin as desired
Saute' hamburger in skillet with onion and taco seasoning. Once browned, dump all ingredients into a crockpot and simmer for 3-4 hours. May thin with milk as desired. Enjoy!!!
