We have been staying busy here holding down the fort. Theres chores to be done and keeping up in the garden. Ive put up 56 qts of dill pickles. I see lots of fried dill pickles with ranch dressing in my future. Now im sharing the cucumbers. Ive been gathering squash, okra, bell peppers, jalapeño peppers, and some zucchini. Ive got to replant some zucchini plants though, the squash bugs killed them. Im starting to get a few tomatoes. If everything comes in in stages i should be fine with keeping up. If the corn does not overwhelm me i want have to ask for help but my mom and dad said to still call them and they would come help. I dont like bothering people. The boys have really helped me in the garden. I had to take my tiller to have it worked on and there is no other way to remove weeds except by hoe and hand. So that’s how we rolled through the corn.
Then football practice and mowing yards for Dakota. In a few weeks before school starts they will have a few scrimmage games. This mom is ready to see some football. He is doing a really good job taking care of Uncle Calvin’s yard, Nanny’s yard and ours. Ours being the biggest.I am proud of the young man hes becoming. We’re still working on this independence thing. Yes hes getting paid cause hes got to have gas money. Lol
I celebrated my 43rd bday on the 12th. Although i didn’t do anything special….my sweetheart sent me these. He is the most thoughtful person i know. I went to a lawn and garden show and got some really good ideas for our flower beds.
Tonight im going to take the boys out for a nice dinner for their hard work all week and then were going to a rodeo if we dont get rained out.
