I loved having a cool rainy day this past Sunday! It's been hot and dry here, so a day of rain was just wonderful! (The resulting humidity, not so much, but I won't mention that...)
Do you make Caprese Salad? I discovered it recently, and we've really been enjoying it. A friend told me her very simple recipe - cherry tomatoes, chunks of mozzarella cheese, fresh basil, drizzle with olive oil and balsamic vinegar, salt and pepper to taste.
I've enjoyed sewing on a few last Red, White, and Blue projects this week.
Friendship Stars for Kat's July/August Covered in Love block drive
Flags for Sue - Alycia at Quilty Girl is sponsoring this block drive to celebrate the life of her friend, Sue, who was very involved in Quilts of Valor.
I like participating in these kinds of quilty projects! I'm a slow finisher of larger quilts, so being able to contribute in a smaller way is a really good feeling! For more info about either block drive, click the links under each picture.
And my last like for this week - did you see the thin crescent moon with Venus earlier this week? A fun sight that I just discovered in the western sky right before heading to bed. I didn't get a picture of it, but there's one HERE, at Space.com.
I loved the headline on the article - "Look up! Venus Snuggles up to the Moon Tonight!"
Hope you're having a great week! Be sure and visit all the other I Like Thursday bloggers at LeeAnna's place!
