Summer Highlights

 Hi folks! I know it has been a while since I have posted on here, have just been working away on the house, garden and you know being lazy when I can.  It was a busy spring I had central A/C installed due to some new venting needing to be installed in my house, so figured might as well get everything done at once. Wow, am I loving central A/C this summer!! I feel very blessed to try and be able to save for one major house project per year. 
This spring was a weird one for planting the garden and flowers, it was cold and rainy for an extended period of time, and I had to replant a number of items more than once.  The vegetables are finally taking off now with the heat and I am eating a few cherry tomatoes and zucchini pickles as I write this post.  I came across Kaleb @ (@wyseguide on Instagram and the Wyse Guide page on Facebook) I have used a number of his recipes over this harvest season, he is also zoned similarly to me which is great for all his garden advice.
Speaking of the garden and flowers, below is a picture of one of my favorite hands-off annual flower combinations every year, Proven Winners flower pillows they start out as 4"X6" tiny little plants in early May and this is what they look like today.  You can purchase different color recipes and they usually go on sale mid-Winter for the following spring.  I find these mixes so stunning and easy to grow every year, plus it takes the guesswork out of planting my front planters.

What are you all struggling with this summer, gas prices? I know they are coming down (woohoo!) but it sure made traveling to see my folks earlier this spring/summer expensive.  In Cheyenne, WY where I live most of the Exxon stations have switched to Sinclair stations, did you know you can save 10 to 20 cents per gallon using their DinoPay app?  Here is some more information on the app, hope you can save some money with it.  Also, if you have a Walmart+ membership you can save using your membership, here is additional information on that, and an affiliate link to sign up for Walmart+ if you would like, no pressure ever peeps just if you are interested.

Here are some items I have been loving this summer while I have been trying to cook more at home and organize my little house along the way.  I am LOVING these measuring spoons that fit in spice jars of almost any size.  They have saved me dumping spices all over my counter a number of times, they also make a great wedding shower gift, or stocking stuffer (yes I said it, just planning ahead).

I am also loving this pencil case, which would be great for back to school for any students you have in your life.  It fits so many items, not just pencils, calculators, or glue sticks; it has a lot of storage and holds all my pens, pencils, sharpies, you name it.  It also comes in a few different colors for guys and gals.

I just want to close by saying thank you to everyone who follows my blog here and my other social media accounts.  You all have been such great supporters even when I just post a story, reel or picture on Instagram and Facebook.  Thank you for taking the time to read through some of my summer highlights and have a great rest of your summer folks!  

I will close with a pic of my sweet peas, they are FINALLY blooming, I grew them from seed for the first time, and I am pretty happy that they are blooming.
