“I dwinking hot chocwate.”
It seemed like a good idea to console my children with sugary beverages after our quest for gluten-free cupcakes came to naught. In hindsight, hot cocoa in mid-July Florida heat wasn’t the best idea I’ve ever had.
On the Homestead:
This is my favorite time of year for eating out of the garden. Daniel’s tomatoes are amazing this year (the sungold’s are the best) and he’s pretty brilliant at finding ways to use all the eggplant, okra, green beans, and peppers in meals that the kids like, too.
Ask Me Anything:
Cutting this post a little short because there are so many big projects looming over me right now. I’m finishing up my talk for the Edel Gathering in a couple of weeks, working on some longer writing projects, and then there’s some big time things not related to writing at all that I can’t share yet (but it’s killing me because I want to tell you all about it). It’s all exciting, but I have to admit that my stress level is through the roof. Anyhow, there probably won’t be a whole lot of time until after I get back from Austin to write for the blog so….I thought it would be fun to post a new vlog soon answering some of your questions (see how I’m coercing you into coming up with content for me?)! So….it’s time for the Ask Me Anything vlog! Catholic questions, blogging questions, my favorite Wes Anderson movie, what it feels like to consume an entire jar of Trader Joe’s Cookie Butter in 24 hours. You name it. Leave your question in the comments and I’d love to answer it for you in a little video….unless I don’t want to answer it….in which case I won’t. But I probably will 😉
Oh! And after last time’s disappointing Stitch Fix, I got a new one this week with one item that’s a super win! I’ll share some pictures soon!
And the winner of the Sewing School 101 giveaway was Genevieve! If you didn’t win the giveaway, but still want an introduction to sewing or brush up on your sewing skills, head on over to learn more about my friend Nicole’s new ebook. (Affiliate link, thank you kindly.)
