Summer afternoon...


The laundry is being caught up...Thank you Lord!! It seems as if it multiplies overnight...anyone else have this problem or is it just me? I have been working on it diligently and feel it has been a rather productive day.

The chicken is slowly cooking on the stovetop for Quesedillas tonight. I used some leftover chicken thighs, cut them up and put them in a skillet, added some yummy salsa and just gently simmer until heated through. Then I take my flour tortillas and put them into another skillet and heat them on all sides then finally add the chicken mixture on top of one tortilla along with some shredded cheese, top it with the remaining tortilla and heat a little and serve with salsa and/or sour cream! I am making a salad, along with Cantaloupe wedges.....easy and doesn't heat up the whole house!!

Taking a break right now to blog a little and to let the soapy water sit on my counter tops, as I'm scrubbing them today. I do one area at a time, take everything off, and start to scrub, using hot water and good ole dish soap. I wash the decorations up as well, then put them back, but tonight I believe I will be doing a little puttering and rearranging of things....freshening the kitchen up a bit.

I had hoped for rain yesterday, but we never received any...another chance perhaps on Friday! Nothing better than a good summer rain, sitting out on the porch and hearing the rain on the roof...now that makes me smile!

Tomorrow I will be leaving to see my mother. She is having an MRI done and will be picking her up and taking her home after the procedure. This is just a follow up, as she has them done yearly. I look forward to spending some time with my mom......listening to her stories and making memories.

Well must get back to the kitchen tasks...have a wonderful Summer evening...blessings always!

You are such a genuinely sweet person. And your puttering sounds so restoring.

I'll pray that things will go well for you and your mom tomorrow. Glad it's not a true concern but just routine.

Enjoy the rest of the week. :)

I know JUST what you mean, laundry never does end does it?

We call that multiplying laundry, Mt. Washmore around here.

An MRI sounds serious...will be praying for you and your mom!
