Wow, I can't believe it has been almost a month since I did an entry.
I have just been keeping busy by playing in the vegetable garden and with my flowers. 4 of my tomato plants didn't make it this year. We seem to have more problems every year with the tomato plants. 2 tomato plants came up next to our bell pepper plants. I guess it is from some of the tomato that fell off last year and started from the seeds. I am not sure if they are going to make it since they are so crowded in between the cucumbers and peppers. We will see.
My daughter starts school in 15 days. The summer flew by fast. We go to pick up her schedule and books tomorrow. She is volunteering at a bible school summer camp all this week. I am not sure if I mentioned this before but she has to put in 40 hours of volunteer work in order to graduate. She is going to have about 20 hours already put in so I told her to just do the bible school next year and you will be all done with your hours. She is going to be a sophomore. I am hoping she will get some kind of job by next summer.
I was on a roll today with the cooking. I am trying to clean out all of the food in the deep freezer so I can defrost it. I also am trying not to buy so much food. I want to get in the habit of just buying food for the meals I am going to make that week. It is going to be hard but with money being so tight lately I have to do something. My daughter is dying because she keeps saying there is no food in the house. LOL
I just finished making hamburgers with onions and green peppers and when my hubby walked through the door I had stuffed green peppers made. I just pulled 7 big ones from the garden and decided to make them.
I also made tuna salad and cabbage/veg. soup for me. I also want to make some orange roughy tonight since I took the bag out yesterday morning. I am trying to eat right again. It has been a struggle. I am slowly losing the few lbs I put back on. I am hoping to be back to all the weight I lost by the end of August. I just need to get back to exercising also. Keep your fingers crossed. I don't think I need to cook for about a week.
Here are some of my cucumbers. I am getting pretty tired of them. I think I need to give some to the neighbors before they spoil.
Here is a picture of one of the frogs in our pond. I have seen about 4 total. My hubby just told me today that there are about 4 baby fish in the pond. I haven't even noticed.
Well, I guess I will go make that fish and maybe pull some more weeds.
