Where does friendship end...

Did i peak your interest?? Friendship end? Your thought might be what did Suezi say to have a friendship end? Nope I did nothing but...BAKE!Not sure if you can tell what that lovely picture is. It is two starters of Amish Friendship Bread(that's right 2), the recipe that you send with your starters to your friends, and a finished Amish Friendship Bread. It makes me laugh almost out loud that it has the word Friendship in it's description. I am on my 3rd batch of this stuff which means I have given out 9 starters to my friends. Now you may think not so hard. Well, i am here to tell you it is HARD! I for one don't have that many friends that want to take on the 10 day process, let alone bake. Plus it takes on a pretty fermenting smell which grosses some light weights out! I am almost ready to start a stand in front of the grocery store!
My friends see me and start to run. Family members turn their backs!
I have two starters going right now which means in a few more days I will have 8 more friends that I need to find to give these starters to! Needless to say I am RUNNING out of friends people!
I am not going to keep any starters for myself. I am done and don't want to see another Amish FRIENDSHIP Bread for a couple of years. Which brings to mind this little thought...the Amish. Aren't they a small community? Don't they run out of friends? Seriously, how do they keep this going? Don't they get tired of eating this stuff? Let alone the calories that are in one loaf of bread!
I am now resorting to my blog friends. Any of you interested? Live in southern Orange County? Heck I would drive anywhere in Orange County to get rid of the stuff. Let me know. Please don't turn your backs when you see me comin!
Off to cut a slice of friendship bread and remember when I did have friends! LOL!

Monday Monday

I do believe I have a hate/love relationship with Mondays! I hate Mondays after a very long and busy weekend...like today! I am dragging. But on the other hand Mondays are a fresh start, a new beginning, new week. A time to regroup and start all over. Love that just not this Monday.

What about you out there?? How do you feel about Mondays?

I have so much to do this Monday and I am just not feeling it. Gotta get my project finished for Scrapfest. I love it! I will post a sneak peel when it is done. Love the paper, and the project in general. Good stuff!
Also, need to get a couple of layouts done. Luckily I got some great pics to get those done.
I will say this though... I really want a good camera! I am tired of just okay pictures. I am going to start saving for one. I get picture envy every time I go to Maggie Holmes or Karen Russell's blogs. Don't even get me started on Tara Whitney. If only!!!!
Here are a couple of pictures from our weekend.

We had a family baseball bbq yesterday! We obviously don't get our fill of baseball!! This is my niece Chloe getting to hit off the tee for the first time! A softball player in the making! Love It! It was a great day! But I will say this I am getting way too old to be chasing baseballs!

This is Jaxon eating his oh I don't know 10th smore??!!! Or maybe it was his grilled cheeses sandwich he grilled over the fire pit! Jaxon's team had a bbq pool party this weekend. It was a great time and the boys were in and out of the pool for 8 hours! Not sure how they do that?? We parents all get along famously and the boys do too. Very lucky this year to be spending so much time with friends you want to be around other than on the baseball diamond. Good times!

On another note, I want to post a challenge on my blog so keep posted. As soon as I figure out what I want to do I will post it here. Sounds like fun... don't ya think?

Gotta jet for now...
