Today has, can I say been wonderful? My kids are outside right this very minute at 1:14pm playing, and it's not too hot! They have the hose and a skateboard and some kids from across the street and they are loving life! So am I to be honest.

Yesterday and today the weather has been bearable and actually pleasant. Yes, I am saying pleasant. Last night there was even a nice cooler (I mean cooler because it didn't feel like a hot blow dryer on high!)) breeze that was blowing and the pinks and purples, that was amazing. I wanted to stay outside all night!

The girls had their friends over yesterday (Jane and Jill are back....yea, yea and triple yea!) and they played all day outside, and not in the pool. Good ol' fashioned play, where you have to make up games and giggle and do all kinds of who knows what. That's my kind of fun for my girls. Fresh air, sunshine and friends to play with! I even tracked down a recipe for kettle corn and made two batches. It was a hit. Yum!

Here's the kids from yesterday making cards with a bunch of stickers I found in one of my Mom's boxes of stuff I had brought home. They sure had a lot of fun!

Today, so far I have not gotten much done. I have my list but I haven't actually looked at it this morning. And for lunch? Well this is what I made. Isn't that what every kids wants for lunch?

I got the recipe for these yummy cookies here: Just recipes
I guess I should go make the girls and I something a little more substantial for lunch. I'm glad that these last two days have been MUCH better than Monday!
