A little update for the week

As I mentioned in my last post, I bought some stuff for my flowerbeds that were really, really overgrown! So this week I have focused in on getting my flowerbeds back under control. The problem is the heat doesn't allow me to get outside for very long everyday. So I have been getting up every morning around 6:30 and heading outside to work until around 10:00 which is my heat limit. As of today, Wednesday, August 6, 2008, the flowerbeds are done. I had a real problem before with drainage so I'm hoping that weed stop fabric and mulch will help with that problem. I also planted 72 "monkey grass" plants which Michael says will help. It took me 3 days but I think it's worth it! I'll post a picture when I'm through watering it.

So here's a report on the menus from last week. I started off great the first two days but then I got sick and the rest is history. I am continuing the unmade recipes this week. I made Famous Pork Chops Tuesday night and we had them for leftovers tonight. This is one of Bobby's favorite meals that I make. I haven't tried the Fake 'n Bake or the 7-Up chicken yet but there is still time this week, right?

I just realized I didn't take a picture of the 3rd item - Michael's baby cradle. Oops!

As I close tonight I want to leave you with this - One of my dear friends from my time in Nacogdoches (love ya Gayla!) writes a wonderful blog everyday that I enjoy reading. She had a bible verse that spoke to me today and I thought I would share it with you:

I Corinthians 16:14 (The Message)

“ Keep your eyes open, …, give it all you've got, be resolute, and love without stopping.”
