Have been busy creating class samples for all the August classes I've got coming up at Old Town University. A couple of One-Stroke painting classes - Cards and Welcome Plaque. A few paper crafting/ scrapbooking classes - Travel Mini Album, Cards, Transfer Technique Tags. A few kids classes - Painted Frame, Garden Stone, Painted Apron. Working on all these samples has me ready to get creating for myself too. I can't wait to use the sunflowers on an old shovel, it'll be super cute. I also have some fun ideas for the kids to do when they get bored around the house.
Hot out again and getting hotter. Not fond of the humid and hot days of summer. Prefer it when it is a bit breezy and not super hot. The kids are enjoying it though. Bike rides, swimming, running through the sprinkler, playing at the park. DS has fun playing with cars, bikes, really anything with wheels. He is such a cute "car guy". DD loves the water and is endlessly bugging me to go swimming. We've only got a wading pool and sprinkler but a few of the neighbors have pools. I have to keep telling her that we are not going to bug the neighbors to go swimming. Maybe next year we can get a pool but this year the kids will just have to enjoy wading in the tiny pool and running through the sprinkler.
I'm going to be baking some zucchini bread today. Thankfully I've got a breadmaker so I don't have to turn on the oven. I can probably get another three loaves of bread using the zucchini a neighbor gave us. Everyone loves the new recipe I got for this bread. Rather than the usual quick bread for zucchini this is a yeast bread that makes a fluffy, white, moist, delicious loaf with just a hint of zucchini. Yum! I think I'm going to grill some chicken tonight for dinner too. Should be yummy.
