The weather just keeps getting better and better. I had a few minutes to snap some photos before my mom came over for dinner.
We did a little cleaning today and Dan mowed the lawn. I swear nothing is better than fresh cut grass.......LOVE that smell. I probably shouldn't because I'm allergic to grass and cats for that matter.
The cat.......he or she----would be meow meow. The neighborhood watch cat. This cat isn't fast enough for much, so I don't worry about the birds we feed. Meow Meow probably couldn't catch them. This cat has no pulse. It's good for Jake, since I'm allergic and no future for cats in our house. Plus, we're kinda dog people :) Meow Meow is nice though.
I wanted the house to smell really nice, so I tried an old trick. I filled a pot of water and threw in an orange, two cinnamon sticks and a splash of vanilla extract. Bring to a boil and simmer for as long as you wish. I even got compliments from Jake on the smell. I told him.....I'm just cook'in water and oranges....he looked at me kinda funny :)
My mom's dinner request, Cheesy Potato Soup. She loves that stuff---I also whipped up some Rhodes Cinnamon Rolls, hard work but someone had to do it. I think I'm getting a little lazy these days. I also made cute candy corn fruit cups, just perfect for Fall. Layer pineapple chunks, mandarin oranges and top with Cool Whip---adding a little candy corn for garnish. Cute as can be!
Hope you're enjoying the weather in your neck of the woods :)
