prep day...



In the states tomorrow it's Fathers Day.. so today I am prepping for dinner. Pork steaks have been on the grill since 9am, i will shuck the corn and a cherry pie just came out of the oven...
The kids and grandkids will all be here...to surprise the hubby, although i am pretty sure he knows what is going on..cause i don't usually bbq at 9am and i don't usually bake in the summer. But he is a good guy and won't say anything and he will act surprised when they all show up tomorrow...

Although...2 of the grandkids are showing up tonight. The SON asked if he could pick them up and take them to the movies and then they could spend the night. Then I made sure that since HE asked for THEM...he gets to make sure they get showers, sheets are put on the guest beds and they get breakfast bright and early tomorrow morning.. should be fun...and quite interesting....and possibly a form of birth control!! HA

Today i must also clean out the sewing room... Our guild program Monday is to take up to 5 UFO's... we will show them and sign a contract to have them finished by December. For each one we finish we will get an entry into a drawing for some supposed to be good prizes... At the budget meeting we talked about getting quilt shop gift certificates and i proposed that we just use cold hard cash... then you can spend it where you wish...and it might be more of an incentive...
So as soon as the pork steaks are 1/2 cooked (i will reheat them in sauce on the grill tomorrow, there are 12 of them!) I will head up to the sewing room to find my 5 projects...

Have a great weekend!!
