My 7 year old has had a lot of questions lately about angels. She likes to collect angels, which I love. She wonders what angels look like, if we can ever see angels etc. I adore our conversations. She is so curious and innocent. Last night before bed we read "The Gift of an Angel" by Marianne Richmond. It is such a sweet story about how God gives each newborn baby a guardian angel. It has beautiful illustrations and just one of my favorite children's story. We received it from a good friend when Marianna was baptized. It makes a perfect gift for a new baby.
Well, I just can't believe that for us summer is almost over. Our schools start here mid August. We have had a really nice summer filled with fun activities. We are going to get in a family vacation starting Friday. I promise to post a few times, but it will be light. I am REALLY looking forward to seeing our family and friends. The girls are so excited they asked if we could leave tonight.
Oh and yes, my sewing class was a success!!! I loved it. I actually learned how to thread the machine the proper way and sew a few different stitches. I know it sounds silly, but I had no clue what I was doing. It was a two hour "basics" course. It was so much fun and now I have the sewing bug. I cannot wait to start a project when we return from vacation. I have so many ideas in my head...looking forward to trying them out =)
Our tasty Tuesday recipe is one I threw together last night and I have to say it was pretty yummy! It is angel hair pasta with grilled asparagus and cherry tomatoes. Here is a picture. Of course a glass of vino too :-)
I chopped the asparagus, tossed it in a bowl with olive oil, salt, pepper and parmesan cheese. Then cooked it in the oven at 425 for approximately 9- 10 minutes. I cut the cherry tomatoes in half. Then tossed the asparagus and tomatoes together. Cook the angel hair pasta according to the package, approximately 4 minutes. Then toss it all together in a big bowl and top with some more olive oil and Parmesan cheese. Pour yourself a glass of wine, big or small your choice :-) Mangia!!! Happy Tuesday ya'll.
