Summer party planning….

For my household summer is finally here.

Organizing wise I am washing and packing away the rest of the winter coats.  I had packed away the boots and snow pants a few weeks ago.  My kids are older and the amount of “after school’s out” paper deluge is becoming less and less.  In fact I only have one packet of papers from one child and a small pile from the other. Such a relief.

We are having a few friends over to celebrate the end of school and are planning a super simple menu.  Chips and salsa, fruit, drinks and some yummy baked goods.  (Including the awesome little sugar cookies in the above picture!)

In the garden I have lots of seedlings coming up and have planted plenty of tomato plants.  I know, “but you can’t eat tomatoes”! But I feel a vegetable garden is not a garden without tomatoes. So this year I have 5 different types, and a few pepper plants too.  My favorite part of gardening is letting things bloom and go to seed.

In part of my garden I currently have a blanket of fennel, dill, cilantro, mustard, and borage seedlings.  It smells heavenly when you walk through them.  I’ll pull most of it up in a few weeks when I plant another round of seeds.

The Nourished Festival is in Chicago this weekend.  If you are new to Celiac/Food Allergies it is a great place to get know companies that truly care about allergy friendly foods.  If you have been living with Celiac/Food Allergies for awhile it is always good to scope out the new finds and sample some of the new products that will be in stores soon.  I shared the event on the Cygnet Organizing facebook page and if you buy tickets ahead of time there is a discount.

Part of being an AllerCoach™ is Auto injector education.  Always have at least two auto injectors with you.

Can you spot the auto injector?

I’m not sure I would be brave enough to not have my auto injector secured inside of something, but this made my day to see this woman biking.  I usually use a running belt to hold my Auvi-q’s and phone while biking, but may need to get a real bike shirt.

I hope summer arrives for your home soon.  -Susan
