I'll start with a beautiful peony from the Community Garden in town.
And it matches my current crochet project too...
This is all you can see until it's done.
I'm not one for doing anything with squares, but I'm enjoying this one a lot.
I'm in love with it!
Fletch was not amused or affected one bit by my shenanigans last night.
He was too sleepy.
Can I tell you about the unbelievably cool weather here?
Okay, I just did. Lots of 60-degree days in June!
So weird after living in Texas, but so great.
Just a sneak-peek at what the concrete looks like stamped and stained.
The patio by the garage is done the same way.
Starting the roofing tomorrow!
I made a big Spaghetti Salad this morning for later.
It's in the fridge getting cold and marinated.
1 Cucumber, peeled and chopped
1 Green Pepper, chopped
1 Red Bell Pepper, chopped
1 Red Onion, chopped
3 Roma Tomatoes, dc-seeded and chopped
1 Zucchini, chopped
2 (2.25 oz) Cans Sliced Black Olives, drained
1 lb box of Thin or Angel Hair Spaghetti
1 tsp Paprika
1 tsp Garlic Powder
8 oz Shredded Sharp Cheddar Cheese
1/4 cup Parmesan Cheese, grated (the pizza kind)
1 (16-oz) Bottle of Italian Dressing
Cook spaghetti according to package directions, drain and immediately rinse under cold water to cool and stop cooking process. Mix in a little olive oil to keep it from sticking together. Place your cooled noodles in a large bowl.
Add all ingredients and mix well. Refrigerate at least 4 hours or overnight stirring every so often to coat salad in the dressing. Serve cold.
I can't think of anything else to tell you about. We've mostly just been stuck here while they work on our porches. The dogs can't go out back because the fence has been down so all the equipment can get in. Ken made a little run out front with some hog wire where we take them outside to do their business. It's a real pain, but I'm sure it'll be totally worth it when all is said and done.
We're going to some friends' house at 4:00 for a little get-together with about 4 other couples. I need to get in the shower and start getting ready. It takes me FOREVER these days to get myself ready. I'm so slow.
Janie with the dirty nose says hello.
