Hello everyone!  I hope you are all having a good week so far.  Last week was pretty busy for us.  Seems like VBS is always a busy time.  Our theme this year was “Hip Hopping for Jesus”.  The kids all seemed to have a great time.

Julie dressed for the part.  All the workers dressed in 50’s style.  I somehow didn’t get a picture of Grace.

We enjoyed our moon last week and finally (after years of trying) managed to get a good moon picture.  Our place was so bright at night, we had a cat bird that sang all night. I guess he didn’t know if it was night or day.

We have also been enjoying some of our fresh produce from the garden.  So far we have had salad greens, green onions, beets, radishes, carrots, yellow squash and a few cucumbers.  We love it!!

I hope you all have a good evening and God bless.

Blueberries and Squash

The girls and I picked a gallon of these beautiful blueberries yesterday.  It was a nice day for picking.  It rained on us before we got to the blueberry place but stopped before we got there.  The bushes were wet but the temperature was not bad and the bugs even left us alone.

Today we made this zucchini pineapple recipe.  We used yellow squash instead of zucchini.  It actually tastes like pineapple.  You would never know it had squash in it.  I got the recipe from here.  http://www.thefamilyhomestead.com/zucchinipineapple.htm  A blogger friend of mine had made it the other day.  She posted about it here.  http://holcombhappenings.wordpress.com/2012/07/11/a-day-of-canning/  I think it will be really good.

Now, question time.  I found out from the internet this squash is called a patty pan squash. Do any of you ladies have a recipe for it?  Our pastor gave them to us and I really would like to try them.  Online it says it pairs good with tomatoes but I thought I would ask you all.

Our weather change here has been amazing.  We had rain yesterday which we so much needed.  We laughed and said the plants in our garden were doing a happy dance for God.  The temperatures have cooled off so much.  We are right now at 73 degrees!!!  Thank you Lord.

Well, that’s about all.  I hope you have a great evening and God bless.
