The lemon plant is outside now and growing big lemons. It gets super hot to dry things out and then the rains come.
For dinner, DH made french toast and I made meatballs in sauce. I made 2 pumpkin pies as well.
DS2 finished his week long basketball camp and then had a hour of training with an ex-Nuggets player. He seemed happy after all of that and definitely more confident in his skills. He will practice when he's not training and hope to get on the high school team.
No spending today. i hope to pay a big bill tomorrow. less

I am hoping the eye and the back get better soon.
I worked a little surprise shift last night, from 9 to 3 am. Tired today, but got a little work done at home. The backyard is mowed. I have clothes washed I need to hang out. Everyone helped for a little bit. My middle dd made crepes for breakfast, I made potato salad and will make patio bread for dinner. I went and got groceries, again. Summer time and everyone is eating all the time! I am working one shift this weekend, to help out and catch up on bills. That will be 22 extra hours this week.
Spent some money on a camping reservation next week.
Have a great evening. We are off to feed my sister's kitties, three of them. less

Today is the last day of our vacation. We saved and went to the beach (no credit cards yay). Yesterday we decided to get back on track with things, especially since dh's dad isn't doing any better. I made breakfast this morning, including a bulk batch of french toast for the freezer for DH to take to work instead of hitting the drive thru so much.
Since my last post I have 2 new grandbabies, and DH no longer drives over the road. With his dad, it was time for him to come home. He now drives a concrete mixer, with better pay thankfully. Kids are growing, ds3 is driving and working a part time job, will be a senior, and the youngest will be a sophomore. I am still at the cafe.
The rest of the day will include getting ds4 back to his dad's, decluttering some stuff, and a little work in the garden. Going to grill a late lunch so we won't have to worry about dinner. less

Watermelon season is upon us! Or about to be, here, anyway. Also, Grapes are still fresh and it won't be long before the new crop of fresh peaches are in.
Prices for fruit are at their lowest when they're in season, so we can indulge, but what about the times when they're not in season? Did...
Even though I've been doing this for decades, every so often I see something that's surprising. This week we're featuring an article from our Bankrate feed that talks about how few millennials have credit cards. It seems that only a third of them use credit cards. I would have expected that number t...
