Been busy today...but in a nice way. The girls & I spent the morning pitting all these cherries that Jon had picked last night over at Mason's. I kept thinking to myself as we sat there & worked & chatted & giggled.....that there was something really special/peaceful about sitting around the kitchen table with your girls & working together. Something I wish every mom could experience with her daughters!!Finished up with the cherries just in time to fix lunch, then Ashley & I ran out to the library & by Food Lion to pick up some pie shells......for the cherry pie, of course. Decided NOT to bake pies today since I had to bake my Amish bread & it is just so stinkin' HOT with no AC downstairs!! Will do a pie & maybe a cobbler over the weekend. Got my Amish bread in the oven & mopped the floors then went & sat outside to cool off a bit & worked on my crochet squares. It was SO hot this evening that we decided to get Vitos for supper.....that & a salad........AND some of the YUMMIEST shrimp pasta salad I've ever tasted. Clay was over at Mason's right before supper & Gayle sent him home with a little bag of this pasta salad she had made & it was SO good. Gotta get that recipe from her!!!! After supper we took a walk........(see, Dana....it's catching!)....Ashley & I walked while Jon & Alli rode their bikes. We walked all the way over to Mari's & then home again. The boys worked in the garden for a while & Clay & Michael got the boat all ready for their fishing trip tomorrow. They're fishing early & hope to finish up around noon.....since it's supposed to be so hot. Jon will be going with Mason to the cabin to weed-eat & I'll be getting my groceries.......ALONE!! Off to get a piece of cinnamon bread & watch AFV with Ashley.
