Busy Week…

Thinking about what to blog about and I realized what a busy and good week it’s been!

First up is gardening – things are really taking off out back!  It’s amazing to see what our rainy days have brought to the plants.  They are all getting so full and green and I really can’t complain.  I had a good haul early last week and expect another one soon!

Looked what I picked today!!

I made more jars of pickles!  I have so many cucumbers I just don’t know what else to do with all of them.  I cooked down my tomatoes and made my own sauce for the eggplant parmesan I cooked with my eggplants.  It was sooo delicious!

Second up is this weeks winnings!  I won (another!) book from Goodreads.com.  I received a book in the mail that I won a few weeks ago.  I’m super excited about the latest win – it’s a cookbook! Hopefully there are some yummy recipes in my future.

I also won $100 gift card.  I’m this months winner for a survey panel I belong to.  What a handy thing this will be, but for now I’m waiting to see what I want to spend it on.

The hubbs and I had a delicious dinner out with a family member that we have not seen in about 15 years.  She’s in town and it was really nice to catch up!

Lastly, yes I’ve been reading but no, not nearly as much as I should be!  That’s my definite goal this coming week.  We’re due for more rainy days so I should be able to sneak some afternoons in on the sofa.

And this is how the resident Sassy Cats have been spending their rainy days:
