Holy cats, I can't believe it's July already!  Happy Canada Day to all of my Canadian friends.

I started the month off with a fairly busy day.  I baked Carey a pecan pie this morning.  He was out of town on Fathers Day, so I had promised him one and finally got it done.

I drove my friend, Pam, to the airport this afternoon.  We stopped on the way for salad at The Cheesecake Factory (yes, just salad).  Then made a quick trip to the Container Store where I managed to exchange some shelf liner.  I over estimated how much I would use in the kitchen, and the unused rolls have been sitting in a bag on the floor for months taunting me to take them back to the store.  I got a nice exchange credit on a card which I was able to put toward today's purchase of some containers (imagine finding those at a store by that name!) and a mop.

July is a big birthday month in our family, so need to get some things done on that front.

I'll be attending a quilt retreat later this month, so need to pull some things together for that too.

I actually have a multi-month to-do list started.  I just found out we are having some company in September, and there are quite a few things that I want to get done before then, and a heck of a lot of things I MUST get done before then.  A few of which may be blog worthy.  :)


  1. Busy, busy, busy...mmmm...pecan pie. That's one of Scott's favorites too. Guess I should make him one. :-)

    1. It’s not my favorite, so it takes some real selfless mojo to make it. I’ll take that coconut one from a couple of weeks ago over pecan any day...unless it's the Chocolate Bourbon Pecan Pie...mmmm.

  2. Sounds like a busy July for you! I've been pretty busy so far too - you can tell by the fact that it's the 6th and I'm just getting around to doing some blog visiting and commenting.

  3. I believe it is against my religion to go to The Cheesecake Factory and not buy cheesecake. FYI I've never been!

  4. LOL, FT, it wasn't easy! They have a huge variety displayed in a big glass case right as you walk in.
