Sorry I am so late in posting my week! Did you ever have a weekend it was wall to wall events and meetings? That was my weekend. Tonight was the first time that I could sit down for any length of time.
First off, It was Jim’s birthday. I am very lucky that he’s my husband and I want to do something special. We spent most of yesterday doing whatever he wanted to do. Biking and then a movie. Then I made his favorite meal, Smoked Tofu & Bean Burritos.smoked tofu and bean burritos
I hope all of you had a great week. I know for many people you were trying to get the kids ready for school. Or you might have getting yourself ready to go back yourself. I decided to do some rearranging of Marcey’s Table. It’s been almost 4 months since I joined you. I have learned a lot. I’ve grown as a blogger. I feel that the blog needs to start changing.
I am working on my about page. When I started, I didn’t know what to write. I have a better idea. I want you all to get a better idea of who I am, what some of my interests are. The page will be something I work on over time. As the sign sign says, “work in progress.”

This week has been one of the hottest that I can remember. I live on Galveston Island and normally, we are in the upper 80s. This past week, it’s been in the mid 90s. And this without our normal Gulf Breeze. Well all we can do is keep hydrated.
Thank the Lord for air conditioning.
It could be worse. It’s been getting up over 100 in Houston Here is an article on how to beat the heat! Hope it helps!
My Week In The Blogosphere!
I am going into my fourth month of blogging. This has been a wonderful experience for me. I am still learning what it takes to blog. Learning all about taking better photos. Learning how to write. Did you know that writing for public consumption is the 3rd biggest fear people have? It has always been a scary process for me. The funny part about this? I am married to a writer. LOL. Writing has been getting easier for me everyday.
What has helped is being part of the blog world. I don’t know any other group who goes so out of the way to get information on what makes a good blogger. How things like Google+ works. All kinds of tips. And the people who are out here blogging.
This has been a very difficult week for Jim and me. We lost our kitty of 11 years to cancer this week. As Jim said, there is no better kitty than Pyewacket. She showed up at our door one day. I tried to sweep her off the porch. She wouldn’t go. It was like she chose us. No one else would work for her. And Jim fell in love with her almost immediately.
A few weeks after she joined the family, we had to leave due to Hurricane Rita. We couldn’t find her and Jim would leave without her. We found her in the car! Well! She got her first trip up to Austin. She loved travel. LOL!
I am glad she didn’t take no for an answer. She was the smartest kitty I ever met. She had a ton of personality. She loved people. Most cats hide when they see new people. Not the Pye. She would be out there snuggling up to them. And she loved her agility training.
She was great with our son. He had been sick for a long time. She slept with him. When you saw my son, you would see the Pye. She was very protective of Carlitos. Very loving. She was our penny from Heaven, and we will miss you Pye!

Sorry that I am getting this out late. Yesterday was crazy. I was out all day. Some friends and I were out in a small town in Brazoria County, Texas. We were driving by the community airport there. All of a sudden, people started dropping out the air. Don’t worry. They had parachutes on!
We ended up spending part of our afternoon watching them. The airplane would fly by and then the parachutists would be coming out of the plane. One at a time. At times, you would see 7 to 8 parachutes in the air. Bright colors of red, blue, yellow, purple, etc. Some would be spinning around. One person flipped upside down. We held our breath on that one. The eventually righted themselves and made a perfect landing. It was a wonderful experience.
Have you ever parachuted?

This was a week for food. I really got into Bastille Day(France’s July 4th), which was on Tuesday. You know the French. Meals are very big in their culture. And their meals revolve around the family. That and the fact that I have eggplants out the wazoo and a LOT of Basil, I did a lot of cooking. So you are going to see a larger recipe roundup than normal. I hope you enjoy them.
Over the next week, I will be posting some eggplant recipes. The eggplant is a highly underrated vegetable. I am posting a simple casserole for when you need something simple. Also, eggplant Parmesan. I want to give you ideas on how to use some of that pesto that I made last week. I think you will like what you see! Keep On Reading!
This week, I am going to start off on a serious note. I live on Galveston Island. We a beautiful place to live. I have great neighbors! We are a University town and well as a big tourist Mecca on the Gulf coast. I wouldn’t want to live anywhere else.
I spent my time this afternoon, with a group called Coalition Galveston. We spent the afternoon brainstorming on the problem of anti-sex trafficking.
Happy Birthday America!
I hope you all have enjoyed this July 4th weekend. That you got to a parade. If it’s still early, that you see some good fireworks tonight! We are lucky enough to have celebrated with friends. I often think about people who are not so lucky and try to share a holiday with them. It certainly makes our day better. I want to thank all the people who have fought and served to make this country great. And American is indeed great. I have been many places through out the world, and am always happy to come home.

There has been lots going on in the world this past week. It’s been pretty quiet in my part of the world though. My week has been one of working around the house. Harvesting veggies from my garden. And of course, spending time in the Blogosphere, looking for cool and neat ideas. I found a few. Keep Reading!
