The Countdown!

I am starting the countdown of days left until I go back to school (as a pre-K teacher). This means I also start frantically trying to get as many things on my "list" done as possible until then. I am hosting our Bunco group at my house this Friday. I decided to go with a German theme for the meal. I will be serving Roggenbrot (Rye Bread), Kartoffelsalat (Warm German Potato Salad), Gurkensalat (cucumber salad), Heidelberg Meatloaf, and Schwarzwalder Kirschtorte (Black Forest Cherry Cake). I baked the cake this evening and will add the cherry filling and whipped cream tomorrow. The big thing on my "Summer Project" list was to clean out and paint our garage. I started on Tuesday. It is slow because of all the "stuff" and cobwebs! UGGGHH! It is also really hot this time of year in South Texas!
I am hoping to make a Gingham apron for the Apron Challenge at "Tie one on". I make aprons fairly often, but I have never sent a photo in to the challenge. Because of the painting project, I haven't been taking any new photos (painting a garage is not exactly exciting!) Instead, I decided to post a few photos from earlier this summer! Please scroll down to see them.


  1. Oh...can I come play Bunko at your house tonight. That food sounds wonderful! Hot German Potato Salad. YUM!

    Oops! Texas is a little far to go from SC for a meal. But....


  2. Where has the summer gone? It is flying by. But I'm happy as I don't like summer at all. I hate the crowds everywhere, the heat, staying light out until late...

    We have been blessed though that most of the summer so far has been mild as far as heat goes. Now that I said that I'm sure it's going to h=get hot again.

    I've always to join in a Bunko group. I tried a few times to start one up but couldn't get enough people to commit.

    Loved looking at your pictures. I think it's so cool that you have so many bats at your house. I love them. Wish you would show a picture of what the house looks like they live in.



Howdy, Thanks for dropping in. I love to hear from you!
