ALLCASTLE PRINCETON + ramblings

A little of this and a little of that....

A busy weekend, a touch of the flu and a rainy day has left me a bit unfocused today, but here are a few things going on.

It has been rainy for the better part of the last four days here. Normally that might be a cause of complaint, but I just can't argue with how green it has made everything. The trees are now fully open. I know it doesn't show up well in the photo, but my little bean seedlings that were barely popping through before the rains are now several inches tall. Though I might prefer sunny days, we sure do need a few rainy ones.

Today we are making a few things to take to a picnic tomorrow. I made guacamole with some avocados I got for $0.10 each last week! The were very green, but a week in a paper bag and they were ready to use. We are also making chocolate chip cookies. You just can't go wrong with chocolate chip cookies can you?

Crystal has a freebie list over at her site today that is of particular interest to those who homeschool.

I have a lot to do this week to get ready for some out of town guests who are coming on Monday. So I'm trying to focus today, and not doing a great job of it. I did manage to plan a few meals and make a grocery list, but that was about it. Really I don't need drug rehab. I normally am a very focused, efficient person. What I need is to not be sick. It always hits at the worst times doesn't it?

better, blog, chocolate, cook, great, make it, paper, and more:
