Saturday Pictorial

We have not spent a weekend at home, in our house, in over a month. When we have not been out of town, we have played in baseball tournaments that have kept us away from our home from early until bedtime. So, this weekend, we invited my mother up and declared this weekend a home weekend.

So, here is my Saturday in pictures.
At 6:00 a.m. I got new tires put on my car. By 6:30 I was having breakfast with The Husband, My Father-in-Law, and my Mother.  After that I got stuck in the rain storm while shopping.

My next stop was the City Market with my Mother, kids, and my junior high best friend. If you are ever in Kansas City on a Saturday, I highly recommend you stop by the City Market area. The sites, the smells, and the taste are unbelievably fresh!

We picked up fresh onions, limes, jalapenos, cilantro, asparagus, beets, squash, peppers, cabbage, carrots, cherries, and even some fresh tea leaves. I can hardly wait until my next weekend at home, so I can go back!

While we were shopping at the market, The Husband was home smokin'. I concluded tonight that I do not like beef ribs. I prefer pork.  Our freezer is stocked. We should not need to smoke for a long time. Funny smokin' story. I was naming off everything The Husband was cooking today and The Short Chic spoke up and corrected me, "Mom, Dad is cooking meat!" Huh, she told me!

The last thing I accomplished today was finishing some of my holiday crafts! You still have time to work on some for your holiday celebration.

  • First, I up-cycled a cardboard drink carrier into a cool condiment holder.  
  • Next, I made a door wreath using crepe paper. Super easy and way fun!
  • Third, I made a Fourth of July pennant banner. The blue pennants got treated to stars and the red pennants got treated to strips. It looks amazing on my deck!
  • Finally, I made some Independence Pinwheels.  I have yet to decide how to use them but they have been fun to make. And they look so stinking cute!!
Friends, that is all for this Saturday. I am exhausted and ready for bed! After a shower, I seem to smell like smoke.
