My in laws redid some of their flowers beds a few months ago and gave us some of the rocks they were no longer using. At first I was not sure what we would use them for, but after thinking about it I decided a fire pit by our pond might be a good use for them.
I also decided that it would be a good summer project for my son. With some help from his sister, he finally finished it last week. It turned out great and we can’t wait for some cooler weather so we can start using it.
And while we were looking at the finished fire pit the other day I saw a catfish and had to take a picture of it. Our pond is well stocked with fish so we often see them, but I have never been able to get a picture of one. Fishing is not my thing, but I think I might have to spend some time at the pond during the evening to see if I can get some more pictures of them.
This is what might end up in your cart at Sam’s Club if you take your kids with you. Please tell me my kids are not the only ones that talk me into random unplanned purchases like this?
We have not tried them yet, but I am thinking they might be good in my oven tacos. At least I hope they are good because we now have a giant Sam’s Club size box of them.
I spent some time this week planning out the next few months of my Cooking Through My Collection series. This series has really been fun because I am discovering cookbooks I forgot about or have not used in a long time. Look for some great new recipes coming soon in that series.
I mentioned a couple months ago that I was trying to finish up the book Quiet and was planning on starting the Bonhoeffer book. Well as you can see both are still sitting in my pile of books. The problem is I have a book problem. I guess that is a good problem to have, but it is still a problem. I find so many books to read and then I start one and read it half way and then I find another one to read and start working on it and then I find another one. You get the idea.
And it is not that I don’t like the books that I have started, it is just that I keep finding more and more books that I want to read and can’t wait to start.
I think I currently have 8 books that I have started and not finished…………
The Bonhoeffer book is one I really want to start, but I am making myself finish some of my other books first. It is a long book and I know that it will take me forever to get through it if I add it to the 8 I already have started. So far it is working and I have finished a few books and have yet to start it.
I updated my Books Read in 2014 list if you are interested in the ones I recently finished.
Now to keep working on finishing a few more without starting any new ones…. Please tell me I am not the only one with this problem? Does anyone else have too many books going on at the same time?
