I've gotten off to a great start.
(1) I've finished my first book of the summer:
Now I'm on to reading Dan Brown's Inferno. I know his books aren't without controversy, but I find them to be page-turners. Here's hoping this one's a worthwhile read.
(2) I'm actually preparing dinner at home tonight. This doesn't happen often enough in my household. Long days plus the second worst traffic in the nation equate to way too many nights of take-out. This summer, though, I am getting my Martha on. Tonight? Salmon, wild rice, and asparagus. Note the lack of "Mc" before any of those items. Victory!
(3) I've finished my first layout of the summer, and it features one of my favorite summertime subjects:
Mmm...shave ice. The layout will go live on the October Afternoon blog tomorrow. One layout down, a whole summer to go. Victory!
Today I'm also happy to announce the winner of the Garden Girl blog hop giveaway:
Jan, I know that you'll enjoy Jen's workshop!
The next Garden Girl blog hop is scheduled for June 22. The next gallery update, however, is just a few days away. June's theme is one of my favorite themes ever. Jamie posted a few sneaks on the Two Peas blog, asking for guesses, and there's one guess that's really, really close. Here's a peek at my layout:
Thanks for visiting today!
