Wow it really has been since March since I've been on.
I've been crazy busy.
First I'd like to say my eldest graduated from High School. My parents came out to visit for it and were here for a few weeks which it was nice to see them but it was so hot and humid they could hardly stand it.
We did have a good time though and I drove my mom to Paducah, KY for a big quilt fabric store they have there. We wanted to go to the quilt museum too but we just didn't have enough time. We had an adventure though getting there and then getting lost on the way home.
We gained a new member of the Sims's family.
On the left is about a week after we adopted him.
He's about 7 months old now and about 55 lbs! He's my big baby.
We had several Marksmanship events with Katherine this summer. Unfortunately because of marching band she wasn't able to compete in the state competition thi
She did excellent though. It's normally two steps forward and one step back with her growth and practice and being 14 now she's a full blown moody teenager who would rather text on her phone since she just got her first actual phone instead of a pre-paid for a weekend.
Katherine started High School this year and also joined ROTC so not only is she busy 3 days a week after school with Band practice but she shows up 2 days a week early to school for ROTC and she has events during the weekend so she is definitely a busy person!
Her sister attends college here in town for the time being and so the family dynamic really hasn't shifted too much.
This is a wreath I just made.
I'm also doing embroidery and beading. We had a craft show event myself and another lady attended this summer and we started an Etsy store though unfortunately I'm really bad with Etsy so I have to reset it up because things got messed up.
It is on my to do list though that list has gotten pretty long. Today I'm just focusing on finally putting up this post, making a meal plan and shopping list which I haven't done for weeks and enjoying the fact that after the tropical storm remnants came through this past weekend our temperature has dropped and it finally feels like fall.
I also canned a lot of corn this is only about half of what I did. They had corn 10 for $1 so I was able to can up enough corn for us to eat it once a week for the next year for $10. I didn't think that was too bad of a deal.
I also made a bunch of strawberry jam this spring.
- Malibu Chicken & salad
- Steak, Corn, Mashed Potatoes
- Teriyaki Chicken, Veggies & Rice
- Pork Tenderloin Roast, Peas, Roasted or Baked Potatoes (haven't decided)
- Chicken nuggets & French fries.
Well I better get back to it that's about as much time as I can spare at the moment. It's been good to touch base again.
