But my reading (and my writing) kind of fell off last month. I don’t have a good reason. I’ve been watching a lot of TV which I hope to quite now that it’s summer.
I’ll be weeding, reading and writing.
At least that’s the plan.
Part of my plan is to join the Daughters of Isabella. I had never even heard of them until I read Sunday’s bulletin.
It’s the women’s auxillary to the Knights of Columbus. It’s just what I’ve been looking for.
I bet most of the women I see at daily Mass are a part of it. I’m especially excited because I never made it to the ‘youth group,’ and it never excited me that much anyway.
I just miss my old parish’s youth minister and activities.
I also have so exciting it’s nerdy plans about my garden.
I was washing the food processer and I realized I’ll be growing everything I need to make pico de gaillo.
You know, the diced tomato, pepper and onion mix. Like a salsa only not liquidy.
Which reminded me that I can make salsa, too!
And I already thought about pickels. Maybe some steamed tomatoes.
Pestos with fresh herbs!
I also plan to share the extra food I grow with everyone at work. Everyone loves tomatoes and cucumbers, right?
Also, I am not taking part in Jen’s quick takes this week because I don’t have anything nice to say… well, not something nice and important enough to warrant a blog post.
I’ll be back in it next week… I still haven’t shared my experience at a new church in San Diego!
