2. New daughter-in-law and I made a run to a fun store in the neighboring city on Wednesday. It's a real, old-fashioned "five and dime," and they stock lots of creative things as well as some school supplies. It's the kind of store you can't visit too often, because it's overwhelming with all the stuff packed into limited space, but once in awhile it's a fun trip.
3. Last Monday I used the "Mississippi Roast" recipe (common on the internet) with some venison stew meat in the crockpot, to make lunches for Mike for work. Instead of using pepperoncini peppers, I used some hot ones from the local farmers' market. Then I cooked his favorite basmati rice to go under the stew meat. Oh, and also made some crowder peas, cooked HOT with more of those peppers. On both Tuesday and Wednesday, I got texts from him, "Great lunch!!!"
4. Thankful for a lazy day today, in which we can kick back in this hot weather, and still get things done but not be under any pressure to do so.
5. And finally, I saw this in the paper this morning, and thought it was very appropriate, especially for a lot of the kids (and some adults) I see today!! :-)
