Pancakes, Coloring,Chick-Fil-A and Gardening

While watching Talmage yesterday E'lyse wanted pancakes so she made some chocolate chip pancakes. As you can see Talmage really enjoyed them.

After a lot of play time with his Aunts, who just adore him I printed out pictures for the girls and him to color. For some reason he loves sitting on my dinning room table.
Last night we went to the Chick-Fil-A Family Night (No I do not make a profit of any kind for mentioning them so much. Maybe I should) he he
There was a couple there that started their own business together he makes balloon shapes and she does face painting. They were great. Her work looked like rub on tattoos she did a phenomenal job . This is balloon guy. He was making Ariel.
Gabby chose an ice-cream cone for her face art and for her balloon

Faith chose a rose for her face are (that is her middle name) and an elephant shooting out water

Our next door neighbors were there and sat across from us. They are moving this week. sniff sniff I hate to see them go.
This is Taylor one of Faith and Gabby's best friends . She got a penguin for her face art and balloon.
This is Taylor's brother Brandon.I asked him if he wanted to be on my blog. So here he is!
We had a good time. The girls keep talking about the next week when we go.
This morning I have gotten 3 loads of wash done, worked on the yard and cleaned up the house. As I was watering my garden I found these . This is a closer picture of them We have eggplant. I have never grown it before and thought we would give it a shot.
I also had planted some seed to grow loofah. You know the loofah sponges you use to exfoliate the skin. A wonderful lady Rhonda Jean at down-to-earth blog sent them to me a few years ago from Australia where she grows them. Her blog has wonderful information on living the simple life through self sufficiency. Where I was living at the time the heat didn't stick around long enough for them to grow so I never planted them. Here in the valley of the unending sun and heat they will have their 4-6 months of heat to grow. They can grow up to 15 ft. high , you have to have something they can climb on like a tree, trellis or a wall. I am excited about these too. They are to produce a orange or yellow flower and it turns into the large pod. I will take pictures as they progress. These will be great gifts along with bath oils, soap and beads for holidays.
So that is just a smidgen of what has been going on in my life. I still have a couple more load of laundry to do, some organizing , budgeting and I have to fill in a craft there somewhere. I am feeling craft deficient. Have a great day. Hugs, Bobbi Jo

Your eggplants are so cute...I had a cucumber plant last year and I would get so excited about baby cucumbers!

The eggplant plants are beautiful. Not quite sure how to fix eggplant. And I've even had it before. Let me know what you do to prepare it. I'm curious.

Have a great day.

Some how that table is universally appealing. Both my kids want to be on top of it but Im a big meanie and say NO WAY! Loved the facial art. I always want to do that but am afraid it will take too long to get off. Bye for now!

The balloons and face painting are unbelievable!

Good job on the gardening. I always have great intentions that never seem to come to fruition!
