Wait for it…

Living a simple sweet life, and learning to wait on the Lord

A Saturday at Home July 7, 2007

Filed under: Uncategorized — Michelle @ 8:12 pm

We had a nice day at home today.  Jack and his daddy washed the car while I did some cleaning, then I got to go to the gym (we just signed up for a 24 Hour Fitness membership since we got a great deal through Ryan’s work), then while Jack napped (it is a rare occasion that he actually takes a good one, but today was one of those days!) I made Lemon Verbena Ice Cream using my very own fresh Lemon Verbena (haven’t tasted it yet…its chilling as we speak.)  Here are a few pictures of our day!

FYI, its really hard to wash the dishes after making custard-like ice cream (especially the sieve) when your water pressure looks like this.  We need to figure it out…just started today.  😦   Yep, its on full blast.

    Welcome to Bloggyville! I’m so glad you’ve joined our fun, crazy world. Now about that water pressure. Yikes is it the same in the shower? Oh and I’ll be over later for some ice cream!

    Come over anytime! I’ll save some for you. Thankfully, the problem with the pressure seems to be just in the kitchen. -M

    Hi Michelle: I have been reading about Lemon Verbena on the net, verry interesting, sounds better than lemons. I had not heard of it before I saw your recipe.

    Cool Chell – I’ve only written on one other blog. Jack’s glasses do look just like Daddy’s… hope he keeps them on outside (or inside if that works 😉
    The great cook that I am “not”, I have never heard of Lemon Verbena?!? Was it good?
    luv u, mom
