Smiling at the giggling kids as the piggies take a swim....
I love to hear "Please spray me!"
Looking forward to the towering sunflowers! Happy summer! I sure miss the kids in the throwback photos, my how time flies. :) Happy Monday. ♥♥♥
Song for today is appropriate- "My! My! Time Flies" by Enya.♫

While waiting for the rain to stop, we created caterpillars! I cut out some construction paper circles ahead of time, but asked each child what color they would like their caterpillar to be.
They glued the circles on, drew on some legs, glued on some eyes, and gave them some polk-a-dots. To take up a few more minutes, I encouraged them to color in some grass, even though the paper was already green. They were happy to do that.
Love this pink caterpillar- I just knew she would choose that color!
Here Chippy is, serenading us through the door. ♫ I sure wish we could snuggle him. Happy Thursday!♥♥♥ Day 2 of sun for us before we drop back down into the 60s and have rain for five days.
Here's something funky for you this morning- I think they call themselves Sweet Sweet Moon, and the song is called "I see things that you don't see and that is blue blue black and Dylan." Well, ok then! It's a bit odd at the high notes, but truly entertaining to me. :)

Oriental Trading. Instead of using the kind with pre-decorated paper designs, we created our own.

My dad took our boys fishing on one of the many lakes that dot our area. I was thrilled because I still don't have my fishing license for this year and I am always craving trout. I had to share this simple recipe.
Make a pesto:
Add lemon balm, 1/2 cup of olive oil or vegetable oil, and 3 garlic cloves into a food processor. Blend until mixed and chopped well.
Stuff fish with onion slices, a blob of butter, and a little salt and pepper if you like it. Spread the pesto on top of the fish, I shoved some inside, too. Bake at 350 degrees in a casserole dish (I lined it with tinfoil) for about 35 minutes. Yum yum yum yum yum yum yum! I LOVE trout. Happy Tuesday!♥♥♥
This song fits my mood about the weather this morning. Dear Lord, I need some sunshine. Or some grace to deal with our lack of heat. Amen. Oh- it's "In The Hall Of The Mountain King" by Epica.♫
