zucchini relish

On Thursday, my friend gave me 3 zucchinis from her garden. I have zucchini, but hated to see this go to waste. So, I made zucchini relish last night. I used Mrs. Wages pickle relish mix that I got at Menards, I know, Menards??? But used apple cider vinegar instead of white vinegar. It tastes very good. I got 5 pint jars and hope to give away 3. As to pictures, I  tried to find the best lighting! Don'y look at the dirty stove top, LOL!!! Blessings!

party for Twin grandaughters

Thursday our twin granddaughters turned 11 and today was the party to celebrate that event! It is always fun to see everyone which means the in- laws and the outlaws(just kidding). Kate's family is so warm and friendly, they are such a joy to visit with! They girls made a haul and we eat like it was our last meal!! Kurt grilled hotdogs and brats, everyone brought a dish to pass! I made cupcakes, so easy for everyone to eat! Have a great week, blessings!

fun week

We had a great fun week with our granddaughters. I think they went home tired, though. We played games, went to the Potter's Shed, went shopping, had smoothies, read books, played on my Kindle, played dolls, had a tea party, met their great Aunt Sandy and Uncle Bob, had pizza twice, and just hung out! It rained when we wanted to go swimming or fishing, bummer!!! Blessings! These pictures are from the afternoon at the Potter's Shed. Kora painting and the twins did mosaics, a bear and an elephant.

3 granddaughters

Yesterday, I worked very early, then came home to eat a quick sandwich, then off to get our granddaughters for a week of fun! We are still planning the days when I get home early from work on what to do next. Probably an afternoon at the Potter's Shed, bookstore, lake for swimming and fishing, farmer's market and a lunch with my sister and her husband.
We went to church today where our daughter and son-in-law attend, then to lunch with them. Erika will try to get over here for an afternoon with the girls. So, now we are playing a game called Tri-ominoes. So, I will close for now. Blessings!!
