Welcome June!

IMG_4242.JPG.jpeg
Hello! Happy first day of June! I hope you all are doing well. In the last month and a half we have finished up with Boy Scouts, Faith Keepers, Spanish and Creative Writing classes. We are having temperatures in the high 90's, so summer is definitely here!

We had friends and family over for Memorial day. In the morning I went to the grocery store for a few things and found these beautiful peonies. They were completely closed, but within a few hours had bloomed.

Phillip got a new grill for his birthday/early Father's Day, so he grilled burgers, hot dogs, and chicken. I made potato salad, macaroni salad, and we also had artichoke dip, chips and humus, and watermelon.

For dessert, we had strawberry and blueberry shortcake and I also made these fun jello cups for the kids.

Thank you for stopping by for a visit, I've missed visiting with you!

Welcome back, Kelli!! Glad you had a blessed holiday! And I know how good it feels to finish up some things! We are schooling through the summer, though, since my appendectomy and Drs. appts. have skewed our schedule! No biggy...we almost prefer it!

Have a glorious week!!

Hi Kelli
It's so good to have you back! I have missed you and pictures of your yummy food and beautiful home.
I hope your blogging batteries are recharged and I look forward to some nice summer stories while we are 'chilling' down under in Australia (1st of June was the start of our winter).

Wow, your maceroni salad looks really good. Forget the kids...the little jello cups look good enough for the adults to eat! I just happened to come across your blog and thought I leave a comment.

Hi, you're back !!!!
I love the flowers. I've got a bush in my front garden, but the buds are still closed. There are buds in that bush for the first time since I planted it. I can hardly wait for it to bloom.
The food looks fantastic. Happy birthday to your husband !!!
