Had a kid from church come over to help DH mow the lawn and do some weeding. It started to rain, so they came inside and I had him help me make some Blueberry Muffins. He and hubby were right at it looking at astronomy stuff on the Internet. I invited him over sometime to use our telescope ($20 at a garage sale) to look at the night sky.

Did up a schedule for the week on iCal and about fainted. It's wicked busy! I insisted on building in half hour rest breaks twice a day. Otherwise it's full out. My doctor would not like this schedule if she saw it.

Lots of church events this week. Things are slowly coming to a close for summer. I am looking forward to it. I really want to get serious about my rug hooking, spinning, and dyeing.

My students I tutor are being demanding. I am going to have to reign them in.

The grocery budget is doing okay these days. Not great, but okay. As long as I am careful we should be able to make it till the end of the month. Right now we're at $378 spent of my $500 budget.

I am not doing so well on my No Spend days, but a lot of that can be attributed to our vacation. I think I spent money every day on it!

Our garden fared okay while we were gone. It's been raining off and on ever since we came back and I have not been able to weed or check the containers to see what is and isn't growing. I do not think it will be as successful a year this year as last. Just my gut feeling. The weather has been crappy and unpredictable for one thing.
