Sunday Night Chit Chat

Time once again for Sunday Night Chit-Chat...hosted by our friend Carla!
To play along simply start your post with a photo or quote... Copy and paste the starters and link up to Carla so she and others can visit you and see what you've been up to!

SO HERE GOES:

This is a photo from a "Bulls Head Roast" that my parents hosted this weekend. A "Bulls Head Roast" is a Mexican tradition that my parents thought would be fun to co-host with good friends of theirs who are from Mexico. They roasted the bull's head all night Friday night into Saturday afternoon and then had a fiesta Saturday night. This was taken from the hill behind their house. (I will have more pics and fun from the festivities later this week, including a pic of the actual bulls head!)

What are you.....

Reading?

I am still reading Every Day a Friday  by Joel Osteen. My problem is I have been staying up WAY too late watching the Olympics and not scheduling in reading time. Now that it is mostly track and field on I will probably have more time at night after the kids go to bed.


  Watching?

I have been watching the Olympics.  :)

Listening to?

Right now the kiddos are watching "Special Agent Oso" on TV. and the hum of the air conditioner. 

Cooking/Baking?

Sadly not much cooking or baking has been going on. We have been eating out WAY too much. That is going to stop now. I am hoping to make some zucchini bread this week. I am trying to find a recipe that does not have so much sugar in it.

Happy you accomplished this week?

I finished all school supply shopping for Rebecca, including uniforms.
I got to get some work hours in and felt like I actually accomplished something.
Looking forward to next week?

Cleaning house. My plan is to get each room deep cleaned before school starts in 2 weeks. May be a tall order but I need to get it done.  

Thankful for today?

That I have parents who do crazy things...like host a "Bull's Head Roast" (more to come about that later in the week!)
That we were able to get all of Rebecca's supplies and not spend a fortune. 

Bonus question:
What hobby have you always wanted to learn? Do you plan on trying to learn? Why or why not?

I would love to learn how to sew. I can sew on a button. I can fix a rip in a toy. But I saw this cute idea online about lengthening one shirt by using another shirt added to it and I would LOVE to be able to do that  (due to the fact that MOST of my shirts have shrunk and are too short for my liking)but it requires a sewing machine. I borrowed my mom's. I read the instructions. I followed an online tutorial about using it. It got jammed and I couldn't get it to work right. My mom came over and showed me how to use it. The moment she left it got jammed again and I just cannot get it to work. I give up. I will probably just continue to admire others' sewing talents and go buy myself new shirts! LOL :)
So there you have it. A little glimpse into my world on this Sunday night! Hope everyone has a wonderful week and remember to link up to our wonderful chat host Carla! :)
