happy weekend


My preferred summer meal is always watermelon. With a side of knitting. We have very few plans for the weekend, besides watering the yard, finishing up a bunch of stuffed animals, and eating lots of fruits. Hope you have a sunny one!

easy oatmeal waffles for two

We love making waffles on the weekend. Jon almost always puts butter and syrup on his, but this time we made a ton of fruit to go on top.

I like making extra waffles, but since there are just two of us, I usually make smaller batches. Here is a quick recipe for some yummy oatmeal waffles.

Mix together:

  • 1 cup Bisquick
  • 1/2 cup oatmeal
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup milk
  • 3 Tbs melted butter
  • Bit of cinnamon

Pour into waffle maker and cook until ready! We made 4 waffles on our waffle maker. Enjoy!

over the weekend

Guess what? It only rained one tiny time this weekend! We did our best to spend the sunny days outside, despite the best efforts of the mosquitoes. I’m really hoping they start moving on to greener pastures once it dries out a bit. We started the weekend with some breakfast tacos and donuts, and our garden rewarded our yardwork with a good harvest.

goals for the weekend

Our goals are pretty simple: 1. Make this yum looking strawberry ice cream. Doesn’t it look the creamiest? Where can I get some pretty strawberries? 2. Pick up a couple more flowers at the garden store. The key here is that we need some blooming flowers. We have a lot of flowers in the growing stages, but we want some blooms to attract some more bees! Have a good one!

happy weekend

Here are two tattoos I will never get, but might if I was the tattoo-getting kind.

What are you doing this weekend? We are thinking about going to the Garden Festival at the park, partly because they have garden talks and partly because it says there will be ice cream and kettle corn. Have a good one!

tea with honey

In the chilly mornings before the sun warms up the house, I try to drink some green tea. Lately, I’ve been adding honey to my mug too. So it turns into mostly hot honey water. Gotta love those bees!

Hope you have a wonderful weekend, full of good activities! I’m hoping to sew another skirt, have lunch with friends, and if the weather is nice, get some tomatoes to plant!
