Grilled Peanut Butter Banana Sandwiches ~ Tidbits
I've grilled many types of sandwiches, but this was a new one for us. Delicious too.
I sliced my bananas, and put peanut butter on both pieces of bread (shown before I added the top bread), and grilled it in real butter.
That was my "something fun" for the day. Youngest Daughter loved it.
Speaking of Youngest, she is helping me bottle feed the boys, taking down my laundry and other jobs. She detests gardening/weeding, so I'll take help where I can get it.
I finally got my sunflower seeds planted. These are simply for the birds and for beauty. I had to dodge the rain showers, but I got it done.
My eyes are seriously irritating me this past three or four days. I've not had that issue with allergies for a while. I'm using eye drops for allergies, but also using my lavender eye pack (cooled in the freezer). Once the rain gave us a break around dinner time, I felt amazingly better. The rain makes it worse for me.
Our strawberries are doing badly this year. I just got an email from a farmstand that also had a bad harvest, so they are not doing "U pick" this year.
The goats are putting up with me. Thankfully, the girls will be back later today from their college orientation. I found out (and this could change) that our oldest daughter is attending the same college with her sister, and majoring in aeronautics (the other sibling, zoology).
I'm not sure how Jesse will do when his master leaves this fall. He has stuck to me like glue. He follows me to every room I go to, and won't leave my sight. Last night's storms put him into a panic, and we couldn't find his thunderjacket. This morning he is sleeping soundly with all his feet up in the air, ha ha!
I took a small window of time to rejuvenate on the porch yesterday. I spent most of it ripping out about ten rows of crochet work (hmpf, I think this recent project hates me). Hopefully today's porch time will actually be relaxing.
If you are wondering, Hubby is still planning on putting in the root cellar. So far, anyway.
