It’s that time of year here where we retreat indoors into the air conditioning and under the ceiling fans. I hope to finish several projects this summer indoors. This past week, I spent a good amount of time organizing and cleaning my bedroom. My hope is to have the house super clean and organized by the end of the month.
In the garden, I planted seeds for zinnias, sunflowers, and basil.
I harvested apricots, blackberries, and parsley from my garden.
I cooked a turkey in the oven from the Thanksgiving sales that we ate for cooked a large batch of black beans in my solar oven, made cilantro lime dressing using some cilantro my mom gave me and made ranch dressing.
I altered two pillowcases for my mom from king size to standard size for set of sheets that she bought at a garage sale. I also replaced the elastic in her workout shorts with some I had bought on sale in bulk from Wawak.
I mended a bra.
We had a picnic at a local park with turkey sandwiches using the turkey I cooked. The park has water play features that the children can play in as well as a playground. Many of the local parks have water features for children. We are considering making this a regular habit for the summer.
We went to the library to check out books.
I signed up for a free PDF for photography that allowed me to request access to two photography Facebook groups. The groups should be a great source of learning for me.
I watched a free webinar.
My husband and I enjoyed some free comedy one night on YouTube.
