One of my favorite things I’ve ever done was the last trip I took across country with the kids from #texastocaliandback ... the #desert was magical. #Shiprock was enchanting. I can’t wait to go back with Kevin and do it all again ... next time maybe throwing some NW coast in to the mix. 💜

Trimmed 1/3 of the back yard trees and Kev took 1/2 of the cuttings in his pick up truck to dump in the country. Still have a pile to go. Country trees are less work than city trees.
.
I sure like a well trimmed yard, though. My cacti will be happy to have more sun on the patio.

Baked salmon patties with creamy mustard Cholula sauce. Lasted five minutes out of the oven.
.
The boys were watching Sponge Bob, so I told them to come eat their “Crabby Patties”, and we dialogued about how they were Mr. Crab’s cheapest salmon fish customers that he let me turn into home-made fish-sticks (Fishy Patties) after I stole his secret recipe.

I heart mushrooms. This one is by my 7yo. Kid art is the best.

Hello Thursday. I see the weekend peeking around the corner. This week has been draining. I’m looking forward to a long break. Here’s to hoping we get one!

Shining on...

(And I won’t scare you with the amount of things I must accomplish before bedtime tonight. Running on five hours of sleep .... pray for this little lump of coal. She’s tired and hasn’t even eaten breakfast.)

Cheaty chips and cheaty cheese. I’ve been slipping from 90% to 75-80% lately. Gotta get back up to a manageable level of cheats. Chris Wark of Chris Beat Cancer says 100% is much easier than 90%. I have found that isn’t the case for me. 90% is a good compromise for certain food limitations. However, I’m almost 100% on sugar, pork, and processed wheat. I also am 100% to get in my veggies usually. Corn is a hard thing to limit for me, though. I reallllly love Mexican food and sometimes we just can’t spring for almond flour tortilla chips or tortillas. What would you do if faced with the choice for queso? I have to admit... the Texan in me indulged.

VBS cookies. Gluten free, refined sugar free. I know the Bible says I have to share, but.. y’all. Much easier said than done.

Happy Father’s Day to my crazy, handsome, funny, creative, inspiring, wild, imaginative, unique, interesting dad. I’m pretty sure you passed a lot of those qualities to your girls. Love you.

Happy Fathers Day to the man who fixed my air conditioning and made this house able to sustain carbon-based life again. I’m always amazed by your tenacity and ability to try new things. You make life a lot “funner”. Love you.
.
And now I know what I would put on a tattoo if I ever got one: Keep Refrigerated 😜😂

That trouble-maker on the right? He drove all the way from Houston when he heard our A/C was out with a part to help fix it. Unfortunately, although he stayed and worked in 95 degree heat with my husband most of the day, the A/C won - it’s still nearly 90. He and his sweet bride bought us dinner and plan to come back again tomorrow to help again. From three hours away. Really.
.
He has come to our aid more times than I can count (and sadly, even remember). He doesn’t have to be asked - he just shows up.
.
I’m so very thankful for you, Pop. Happy Father’s Day, turkey. We sure love you! Give nana another hug from us, too.
