Crazy languages!

Okay...if you checked out my blog in the last couple days, you might have been confused by the Spanish settings. lol. Goodness knows I was! I didn't even realize it was in Spanish until a friend informed me. (Thanks!) My almost-3 year-old daughter has been playing on the computer a lot...she says she's a "big girl" so she needs to work on the "puter" now. Somehow, she managed to change the part I saw to Hindi. In trying to change it back, somehow I managed to change the part you see to Spanish. lol I'm hoping it never happens again, but at least now I can find the button to change it, no matter what language it's in....I think. Aren't little ones fun? :)

Sorry for any confusion. I hope you are ready for a wonderful week!

Homemade pizza

My son and I made homemade dough, homemade sausage and homemade sauce for one of the most delicious pizzas I have ever had yesterday. It was really fun to make it as much from scratch as we could. He said that next time he wants to grow all the herbs and make the cheese too. lol. It was such a neat thing to see him think all the way back to planting the tomato seeds, watering the plants and watching the tomatoes go through the whole process to ending up on our pizza. It was fun for me too, actually. :)

I just had to hop on here to say the homemade tomato soup we made was AWESOME!!!! I can't believe we made it from scratch. It was the best thing I've ever made from homegrown tomatoes and soooo good! The recipe is from a friend of mine. Here it is, if you'd like to try. :)

Life at Home

Home. I love it. There's really no place I'd rather be. And today I'm not leaving it allll day! I'm excited.

We pulled a couple gallon bags of tomatoes from our garden yesterday (I still can't believe that!) and today we're going to put them to use. I'm thinking about making salsa, tomato soup and sun-drying the rest. It looks like we'll have another large batch ready by next weekend. I'm thinking sauce for that bunch. Yum!

I purchased some beeswax sheets through a co-op and think the kids and I might make some candles with them today. My son is itching to get to them.

I think the rest of the day will be spent baking bread and playing with the kids.

How lucky am I?
