Week in Review!

First and foremost, I'm sure you're wondering what is up with all the missing pictures on the blog. Unfortunately I've been using Photobucket but with all the people linking to my pictures and clicking on them etc, the bandwith is exceeded and won't kick in again until the 22nd of this month.

In the meantime I'm going to start using another site for pictures online, I'm so sick of Photobucket doing this, it's very frustrating.

Anyway, here's my week in review, feel free to join in if you wish, but if you do, let me know so I can come and see yours :)


I've been waiting for this game for so long. I'm a huge Sims fan, I like the fact that it's not a violent game and I can just sit at the computer and play house, create a family, decorate etc. It's so much fun. The new Sims 3 just released on Tuesday and I was at the store first thing LOL

A few nights ago, I let the dogs out for the last time that night, it was around 11:30pm, and I couldn't help but notice how beautiful the sky was. The moon was peeking from behind the clouds, so I took the camera, snapped a picture and then sat there for a few minutes, with nothing but the sound of crickets and the moonlight. It was pure bliss.

The way I keep my bread. I haven't used a bread bag in many many years, but lately we've been enjoying home baked bread instead of store bought and there's nothing better than a hot rustic loaf of bread, inside a vintage Bread Bag.


The whole Legend of the Seeker and Merlin Series, back to back.


Summer dresses for Jasmine, I'm actually also taking this pattern above and adapting the dresses as tops for her. I think they'll look really cute worn with shorts or capris.

The Sword of Truth Series by Terry Goodkind. Ok well I didn't really find them on my own, I heard about them because of the Legend of the Seeker series that are made from the books.
I tracked them down at Paperbackswap and am slowly building my collection.

What activities we're doing this summer, signing up kids for swimming lessons and the library reading program, plus a few other day trips.

Also decided to go with the flow this summer and not worry about making plans or schedules.

Beautiful moon shot! I can never get those night shot pictures to work. I love that pattern - you're right about it making cute tops too!

Awesome moon shot! The dress pattern is very cute. I agree that it will great shirts. Have a great weekend!

Michele said...

I'm happy to see you are on Paperbackswap. I love that site and now very seldom pay full price for a book. I also know my books are going to someone who really wants them, instead of gathering dust on a shelf in my bedroom.

Awesome moon photo!

I enjoy Paperbackswap too. I read a lot and it's hard to pay full price for a book anymore. Beutiful moon shot. Have to love the night skies when they look like something out of a Sleepy Hollow. Have a good weekend.

That bread looks so darn delicious! I love that kids made a summer list. With little check boxes. So cute!

Kar said...

Sounds like you have your hands into about the same as me. Too much! :) Baking, sewing, reading, lists, etc. Glenn loves reading Terry Goodkind. He's got quite a few of his books also. Love your list. It looks like ours.

Have a great weekend!

Your the second person talking about bandwith but I have no idea what that is.

I love the moon shot, and you know, I have just been outside (it is 11pm) and there is something so special about sitting out in the dark, watching the stars. I love the warmer weather. However, it was perishingly cold out there tonight!
Bread bags sound like a great idea. I may have to make myself one. And seeing the pattern for Jasmine's dresses reminds me that I have been meaning to look for a pattern to make little dresses for Missy. I feel a shopping trip coming on!

It is so great to catch up, Sandra. I have been away for ages, and I have missed you all so much. I am slowly doing the rounds and finding out what everyone has been up to this evening, and it feels like coming home.

We have enjoyed the full moon also. We had a fire in the pit Friday night and just loved it. I think I may do this also-time permitting....
