Even though it is Hot outside and a few pics

I'm making a pot of beef vegetable soup. For lunch we had bacon, pepper jack cheese, and tomato (from the garden) sandwiches on ciabatta bread rolls. YUMMY!
Here is the tomatoes doing well.... the grape tomatoes are coming to good.......and my sunflower is dying off...don't know what happened. And last is a pic of a wild flower that  grows a plenty along the road here and I am wondering if anyone knows what it has the periwinkle color to it.

That's it for today! Oh and our local county fair begins tonight. I think we are going to go on Saturday for the truck pulls. Saturday is my daughters birthday also..I'm taking her to lunch at Red Lobster and shopping. She'll be 20 years old. My how time flies.

Have a great evening!

Hugs and smiles

This is my dollie and my ground

This is my new dollie that I have been working on. I really am a amateur with sewing and I guess I may get better as I practice more with others.

Made cabbage rolls yesterday for dinner. Haven't had those in a while. I think they taste better the next day anyway. Waiting for the tomatoes in the garden to ripen. Want to get started on the canning of those and to make a good ole mater sandwich.  My dad also planted kohlrabi, lettuce, parsley, banana peppers, green peppers, grape tomatoes and I added cabbage, zucchini.  The kohlrabi and lettuce are gone along with his green onions. They are the first things to grow.

Watched Deadliest Catch last night to say farewell to Captain Phil. So sad to watch. He was makes you put things in is short whether it be minutes to years.One thing that upsets me is how many people live for "things" and how much they can obtain. I always said "you can't take it with you" but some still think that is what life's all about...what you can get. The psalm... is one I read to understand no matter what you have on must prepare for heaven.....
Matthew 6:19-21

"Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust
destroy, and where thieves break in and steal. But store up for
yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys,
...and where thieves do not break in or steal; for where your treasure is,
there your heart will be also.
On that note I will say 'Have a great day"
Many blessings!

Enjoy family and friends...and last the beautiful fireworks.
