The soup was a success!!! Nice and hot and full of veggies. Even had leftovers for lunch today... I know that I've succeeded in my own book if I'm willing to eat leftovers!

We planted Snapdragons (a childhood favorite of mine), Asylum, these cute little button like daisies, Oregano and a Mum after cleaning out the planters. I intended to take pictures during the process but realized after the fact that I was apparently too busy to do so! So here are pictures of the finished product instead.

Also made some delicious chocolate chip cookies from scratch... Yum! I used Ghirardelli Milk Chocolate chips and the classic Nestle Toll House cookie recipe - it's simply the best one out there that I've seen. So now there is a piled hile plate on the kitchen counter - wonder how long those will last? Not long I'm sure.

 I've been enjoying playing Scrabble on Facebook - it's entertaining to see just how badly I can lose most of the time. Makes winning a game quite the accomplishment! Anyone up to a game?!

 Other than that I have a billion projects that I want to do but never seem to have to inspiration to do when I have the time to work on them. Why does it always seem to go that way? I have managed to complete one project recently though -- A modpodged tray... I really like it! I just used some of my piles and piles of scrapbooking paper that coordinated well with my dining room/kitchen colors. It turned out great!

I did learn that I have to make sure I completely glue the underside of the paper down before putting a layer on top... that is where bubbles come from - good to know. I'm currently using just the basic Modpodge brand - I did notice that there is one specifically for paper projects... but I wasn't positive what all I'd be using so I didn't get it. Anyone know if it makes that much of a difference? Or if another brand is better?

Talk to you guys soon - I'm off to play/workout on the Kinect!
Till then... Rest in Him.
