There will be some serious zucchini grating going on in this house over the next couple of days. Grate and freeze now……zucchini bread later. I also made a few of the small ones into pickles in one of my canning frenzies.
I never mentioned the jelly taste we had at P.T.’s two Sundays ago. It was fun and I learned what would be better titled as a topping and what everybody thought. Constructive criticism on future holiday presents is always a good thing. I was partial to the strawberry basil jam, I would have never put those flavors together so thank you Pinterest! I also learned that limoncello jelly made from super strong Everclear still has a burn. I’m not sure why, the alcohol usually burns off? It was nice to get some feed back and I think everybody else was having fun too.
The color is called up all night..perfect for the toes. She said “it reminded me of you, it’s one of those mystical cool colors.” It was so sweet! I will remind all of you again in case I haven’t said it enough…I have the best friends…I am so lucky! 🙂
My daughter and I had to take movies back to the video store and when we were in there the owner was telling me about her sister during the heat wave. (quick back story…last summer when it was really hot for a while…and I have no air at home…and the miracle van didn’t have air…I went in..made sure no other people were present and I laid on the floor) They were in the car and her sister said”I can’t take this heat when we get to the store I’m gonna pull a Zia!” HA! That was funny and she couldn’t wait to tell me.
Then we had to run to the mall real quick and leave it to my daughter…….she said “you know mom since Princess Diana was buried the day I was born and you almost gave me that middle name..that’s what you should call me in your blog….Diana Princess of THE Whales.” After I laughed and little tears were rolling out of the corners of my eyes I said “Princess of Wales…not the whales” Only my kid and this only came up because of the new little prince. I was teasing her in Macy’s and I called her a brat and her response was “apple…tree… mom” I know my little clone, I know.
Work is so stressful that I want to hide in any random closet that is available, so I will take comic relief anywhere I can get it. It has to get better right?….Zia
