July Goals and a big, fun To Do List!

Wednesday, July 03, 2013

Happy almost 4th of July! My weekend was really fun although it was so busy! I posted some pictures of what I did below. Last week I helped my Aunt with a bridal shower project. I decorated the wicker chair with tulle and flowers - it took me 3 hours because we couldn't glue anything. I had to use wire to tack everything on tightly!! I put a picture of my cousin in the chair from the shower! Friday night I got so play some games & see the cats I used to have. The one orange cat, Sphinx, lets you put anything on his back hahaha. He is a silly fluff! I also helped my parent's with their yard sale on Saturday. I made $45 selling my junk, and they made about 300! Then I had the baby shower - everyone kept commenting on how professional the decorated chair was. I never decorated one before, so I am glad it came out nice. Saturday night I went to the park after the shower & then went to a friend's house to watch a movie!! On Sunday, I went horse racing - it was a lot of fun although it was raining. I felt a little bad for the horses, but there is nothing I could do about it. I won a few races and came out in the end with just losing one dollar haha. Normally when I play at the casino, I lose all of my money. At least I only lost a dollar over 4 races! I tried betting on the underdog because you never know! During the last race, the horse least likely to win got first place - and I won!!

This week has been very slow at work. Three people have been on vacation, and there are only 4 of us here. The boss let us leave at 5 (instead of 5:30) on Monday and Tuesday because of how slow it is. Today we get to leave at 3! We are off tomorrow for the Holiday & they also are giving us Friday off at the holiday also! Instead of having just a 4 1/2 day weekend - I am taking all of next week off today! I get to leave at 3 today and I don't have to come back until 7/15! My birthday is 7/14. I will be 28 this year, and I feel like I am 21 instead!

My garden is doing pretty well. Unfortunately I won't be around next week to watch it grow even more. I cut off one hot pepper so far because it was starting to turn a little dark at the stem. I am planning on making turkey chili on Friday & I would like to use the pepper! The lady bell peppers are supposed to turn reddish?? So I need to wait for them also. My Mom said she is afraid she will cut them wrong, but it didn't seem that hard for me - so I know she can do it!
