I Apologize

I would like to pop in a minute before I get ready for church and say I apologize to my readers if you have left comments and I have not responded. I post alot using my phone and the dashboard is different from a phone than it is a computer. I just now found all my comments and I’m trying to answer all them. Thank you all for being patient with me.

Have a good day in the Lord.

Wrapping Things Up

 photo IMG_20170720_102909773_zpsynpa1zs8.jpg
I have been processing and canning more pasta sauce this week. I’m up to 93 jars now and have another roaster pan simmering. I will can them Monday.
Dallas offered to cook one night and by all means I let him. I was so exhausted and he did not disappoint. photo IMG_20170719_204511396_zpsui5x77pq.jpg
Atleigh came and spent the day with us. I love singing to her like I use to sing to our boys.  photo IMG_20170721_101734419_zpsnrpjh1pz.jpg
Of course she loves lying on Poppie too. photo IMG_20170721_094621360_zpsa3ghrnmv.jpg
You can’t tell me that God doesn’t exist.

These boys will wrestle anywhere.
This is what hard work looks like. Maybe I will have a good dear season and add to it.

Up To Our Ears

We have been up to our ears lately with produce from the garden. Literally. It has been a tiring two weeks but our freezer and pantries are getting full.

Since I posted last, I have canned 49 jars of spaghetti sauce.  photo IMG_20170712_105002012_zpsaoaaynma.jpg
I still have some in the freezer for the next batch and will pick again tomorrow and get another roaster on to cook.
Monday we cowboyed up and hit the garden and picked all the corn and got it shucked and in the house to soak. If you don’t get your corn put up quickly you had better soak it in water or it will start dehydrating quick. The coons we’re getting into my corn real bad. I saved more than they ate I think. Yesterday I spent all day washing and silking. Then sorting, and vacuum sealing. We had over 75 bags with 6-8 cobs in each. Very good harvest. Although it should have been picked two weeks ago, but I was heavily involved in green beans. We have worked together and got things done around here. God brought my honey home just in time. I don’t think I could have done this by myself this yr with my health problem.
All we have left now in garden is periodic tomatoes. I will continue to harvest and can those until they quit producing.
Now I can focus on some other things like my flower beds which look awful by the way.
Dear hubby has some projects now he can do that he wants to.
Next week Dallas and I are going to have some fun before school starts. I can’t believe our summer is almost over. He is excited about starting high school but a little on the nervous side. We have to change his schedule because he has decided to take his Freshman yr off of football because he has so many classes he wants to take and so many he has to take for his military career path. I will not know how to act not having a game to go to and cheer him on.

We are still having fun with his grandbaby. Now I know why they call them Grand.  photo PhotoGrid_1500212937343_zpscnt42srs.jpg Poppie bought her a toy and Uncle Dallas put it together.  photo PhotoGrid_1500212901441_zpsaiofwk6n.jpg

Dakota is really good with her but every once in a while he gets nervous when he can’t figure her out. The other day he called and said, “I need your help, I don’t know what to do and I can’t take the crying anymore.” Awww, bless him. He tried so hard and as long as he could. We told him to come on over. I took her and got her quiet and settled. Dakota settled down and could catch his thoughts. I know he felt like he failed but he didn’t. Babies do not come with instruction manuals. You have to just figure things out. Dakota had colic when he was a baby. We know it can play havoc on you. He loves her so much and it shows. Sometimes it takes a village.
Well, we are just going to chill today and probably do nothing. I am sore and exhausted.
Hope y’all have a good day.
If you find me on Facebook and send a friend request please let me know you found me through my blog. I get alot of requests and I’m kind of liery or leary…however you spell it. Just want to know people are legit.

Busy, Busy, Busy

We have been so busy this week. We have been up to our knees in green beans. Two pickings and we canned 99 qts. Plus some for fresh Asian green beans which I think I got around 10 pint size bags. photo PhotoGrid_1499257764846_zpszpbk6ycq.jpg Green beans did not know it was a holiday nor did they care. When they are ready, you had better be ready or you could loose them. I am so pleased with this years harvest. The rest of the beans we will let dry on the vine and save for seed.
We have also had two good pickings of tomatoes. I cut them up and freeze them until I have enough saved up to make a roasting pan of sauce. I will be doing this next week. If you want to know how I can my green beans or my tomato sauce, check out our Canning and Preserving Page on our blog. I have step by step tutorials and my recipe for my sauce.
It want be long until we will be harvesting our corn. I’m so excited that our garden has done so well this year. We have not had to water not one time. God has brought the rain when we needed it.
Dear hubby got to work on some projects that he has been looking forward to doing for 3 long months. He got his new tractor (new to us) out and got to play. He bush hogged our pasture where we use to have goats and I so love seeing it like that again. Then he started on our fields where our food plots are for hunting. He was in Heaven  photo IMG_20170706_135615561_HDR_zpszrtah6bg.jpg
He also worked on something he has been wanting to do for years.  photo PhotoGrid_1499257716254_zpsdzpuivqj.jpg He made himself one all by himself. It is lit up at night. We will let Ole Glory fly at our house also with the Marine Colors.
We did get to take a pause from green beans and celebrate the 4th with family.  photo PhotoGrid_1499257561069_zpsef1aatil.jpg  photo PhotoGrid_1499257496732_zps6m50q7qx.jpg  photo PhotoGrid_1499257304565_zpsfwaohiv2.jpg  photo PhotoGrid_1499257236878_zps3dwxs2am.jpg  photo PhotoGrid_1499216875213_zpsl33esrhd.jpg  photo PhotoGrid_1499256994196_zpspyerecn2.jpg  photo PhotoGrid_1499256901325_zpszkcdir36.jpg
Atleigh is Nannys first great great grandchild.  photo IMG_20170704_173448999_zpsoyks25ce.jpg
We are having a ball with our granddaughter. She loves her Poppie too.  photo PhotoGrid_1499603096772_zpscxr9xegr.jpg

She is too stinking cute. I got a little smile out of her. The onsie was made by a friend from church and I made the diaper cover.
I will get to keep her next week because Jossie has made a sacrifice to go to work to help support her family. Dakota does not go back out of town until Aug with the apprenticeship program, so like everyone else, there are bills to pay. I know it’s early for her to go to work and I worry about her, but I admire her sacrifice for her family. Dakota has to finish his classes in the program to complete this year, so he will be gone three days next week. Poppie has to go to PA for some certification classes just for a week. It will be me and Dallas holding down the fort with Atleigh. She can help me with my tomatoes next week after all she’s G-maws buddy. Lol.
I am so proud of Dakota and Jossie and how they take such good care of Atleigh. They have truly grown alot the past two years.
Yesterday Dallas had different kind of classes. They were training street combative techniques.  photo PhotoGrid_1499603316918_zpsnrlvltwj.jpg
The garden should all be in before school starts back except for a few tomatoes that will continue on til frost. I can handle that. I can get back to some sewing projects then.
Dallas is so excited about going to high school this year. He is not nervous at all.
Well, I got the results back from my heart test. Heart is pumping good, and no blockages. However, they did see a problem. I have high blood pressure in my lungs which is called Pulmonary Hypertension. I also have two valves that leak air a bit which causes me having trouble breathing sometimes. So I guess my Dr and I will discuss it this week. Thanks for your prayers.
Enjoy your Sunday today and Remember to count your blessings.  photo FB_IMG_1499602315576_zpsy3v3urmn.jpg
