Life is good...and so is zucchini.

It's been 2 months since I last posted anything here. I guess you could say that I just haven't felt that it's been necessary. The desire to write a new entry hasn't been what it used to be. That is not to say that I don't think of you often, just that I've been busy living and have found other things to take precedence. There are only so many hours in a day. Know what I mean? Plus the fact that I came across this quote last week and it pretty much sums it up for me:

"The reason we struggle with insecurity is because we compare our behind-the-scenes with everyone else's highlight reel."  Steven Furtik

Since the last time I shared, much has happened. Namely summer. School is out. Alison moved home from college. Swim team has started. We've celebrated 2 family birthdays - - a 16 and a 44 (neither of which are mine). Lawman has been gone for training, National Guard and just today is finishing up at the annual Country Stampede music festival. We've had family gatherings, a rodeo, a wedding in Nebraska, and the issue of a refrigerator that went ka-put after only 4 1/2 years.

I have found myself in a slump in the kitchen. It's just been too hot to cook therefore, I haven't. Wonder how long it will be before the family notices? (teehee) Today I was the recipient of a zucchini drop-off. In order to use it up this week (I received more than what's above), I decided I would make a chocolate zucchini cake. The family will probably appreciate it and maybe this small act of kindness on my part can give me a few more days of reprieve from cooking.

Until next time ~

Always so glad to see a post come up from you!!

Sometimes I wish I hadn't committed to a 365 when the weather is so nice and we have been as busy as we have.

Enjoy your summer, we are always here :-)
