I said I was not going to use my stove yesterday, but I did. Hubby brought home some ginger root and club soda yesterday, so early in the morning I made a double batch. This is so refreshing on a muggy day too. This is one of the recipes I most likely will have ready for when my older two are home. They have been writing home about recipes they want me to make.

I boiled one dozen eggs, as the layers are gifting us generously (and I have yet to drive extras to town for Mom and brother). To be honest, it's been too hot to drive. That's my excuse in case Mom is reading this (ha ha!). I put two more dozen eggs in the back fridge to sit for a week or so. I found letting them sit longer helps the peeling process after boiling them. We are enjoying them as snacks, for egg salad, lettuce salads and other meals.
I am making these mini granny rounds. I glue them into recycled bottle caps for necklaces and keychains. They are fun for gifting, thank you's and wearing.
I made myself this one, to match a top that I plan to fit into after I lose another 10 pounds or so.
No rain yesterday. The heat index was up about 94°F or higher. Humidity is still hovering. I'm not sure I'll be weeding today even. The sky however, is looking more promising than yesterday, but then again it tricked us. Praying for rain today.
I walked 4.1 miles yesterday and am down 2.4 pounds since I started back up. I have 30.6 pounds to go. Hubby is down about 20 pounds now. I better get off here and get walking. When it does rain, if it ever will, it will be heavy with storms possible.
