Just to catch up.

Hi everyone.
These pass two months have been busy ones for me, so I haven't posted as much as I should. The garden has keep me pretty busy as well as animals this year. Add into that two small trips and one big one and I seem to run out of time.

Here is just a small list of things going on. I won't bore you with everything ,but you will get the idea.

I made two wonderful trips to Heidi's ( need to go back, MISS HER and her babies.)

Drove 10 hours to tour a Bio-intensity farm (with Debbie and Rich )

Went to my sister-in-laws wedding in Idaho.( Will be going back in July.)

Made laundry soap, dish soap, and goats milk soap.

Learned how to made dehydrated meals.
Dehydrated onions, garlic, spices, Zucchini, and oranges so far.

Picked cherries ( 14 pounds) and made pie fillings for the freezer and cherry syrup.

Harvested some of my garden.
weeded both side and raise bed garden. Had to put up deer fencing around both.
Made a rug, quilt, and needle work for friends.
Remodeling and painting.
Then there is the every day stuff, cooking, cleaning, wash, and a course entertaining the husband .

How to give your mom a hear attack.

Rick and I had be out getting a new flag pole and doing other errands. Tiff called to say she was on her way to our house. I hadn't seem the girls for a week due to work. So I was real happy to see her car in the drive. I walk in to see her purse and phone on the table. No child ? I looked up stairs to see if she was laying down in the guest room. Nope no child . I yelled for her thru the house, no answer. Looked out front and in the garden no child. I then started to get a little worried. She always takes her shoes off in the house, but they won't there. Plus she would never go anywhere without her purse or phone.  I went back outside to look again. Just behind our huge oak tree I found this.
No wonder she didn't hear me yelling at her. She was sound a sleep .  A bomb wouldn't wake that child. I learned two things that day. One, no matter how old they get you still worry about them. Two when it comes to our kids ,we worry about them at a drop of a hat.  I just smiled  down at her and walked away  letting her sleep. Thankful she was safe.
