Good morning sweet friends, I hope you've all had a wonderful weekend.
Our Father's day was wonderful, it started with church and both kids came with us, which was a huge blessing. Next we met up with my brother and sister in law, for a quick lunch at Denny's. It was so nice to go out to eat after all these months, to have some good laughs and enjoy yummy food.
The rest of the day we hung out at home, just relaxed and even got in some afternoon naps. We all know those Sunday naps are the best aren't they?
Before those naps though, Curt and I had been out in the garden putting cages around the tomato plants and some wooden stakes to hold up the Zucchini plants which are HUMONGOUS. And that my friends, is when I got the surprise of my life. I actually screamed and scared my husband LOL
We have Zucchini coming in, but we were able to harvest our first one. Check out the photos of that in my "From the Camera" section. Let me know what you think.
I ask that you still keep my husband in your prayers, we have not yet heard anything about his job.
Now, let's get on with business shall we?

♥♥From the camera♥♥
My first zucchini from the garden.
I actually screamed when I saw it. At first I had no clue what it was, I kept looking and thinking "why is there a dark pipe in my zucchini plant?" Hahahah
When I realized what it was, I let out the biggest scream ever. My poor husband got a fright.
This zucchini is 4.005 lbs. WHAT??? I am so proud of myself, since I grew these from seed.
♥♥Looking around the house♥♥
It is quite dark this morning as we have cloudy skies outside. The kids are still asleep. I have the sound of the fan whirring above me, and birds loudly chirping outside.
♥♥Chore I'm not looking forward to today, or this week♥♥
The carpets.....the carpets that I despise and that my husband is holding on to for dear life. Hahahah
♥♥To relax this week, I will♥♥
I finished Genesis last week and am starting Exodus today, can't wait. It's what I've been doing lately to relax.
♥♥On my prayer list♥♥
