OK, here goes.
I haven't been around for awhile
so there is a lot to tell.
See this adorable pic above?
below is what it took to get it.
Think we have a little live wire there?
when I got the "good" pic.
I had to crop it to remove the boob shot
that Dianna gave us all!
We had our Easter celebration on Friday.
Somewhere along the line,
I decided to make a favorite dessert
for each of my son-in-laws.
I made two peach pies,
two chocolate chess pies,
one peanut butter chocolate pie
apple walnut cake.
I used to bake, but rarely do anymore.
Jennifer didn't know me then.
She couldn't figure out where I bought the pie crust.
I guess that's a compliment?
Saturday morning, had me searching for an Amish to make a new awning for our porch.
First Amish Farm
"Well, uh, you go to the end of this road and turn right, go to the driveway before the woods
and turn right again"
Wave to the 14 kids under the age of seven.
(I really don't know how they do that)
Carefully turn around,
counting kids and making sure that none are behind my car.
Second Amish Farm
"Well uh, that would be Harvey,
go out this road and make the first right and watch for the
sign that says 'Canvas'
and turn right again."
14 kids, turn the car around.
wave, wave some more.
Third Amish Farm.
Find the right building out of the fourteen buildings on the property,
go to the door.
The sign reads.
I am not working,
I broke both my wrists.
It will be three months.
First Amish Farm
I travel on out the highway to where I know is another
sign, following the pic above for quite awhile.
I really think that they need rear view mirrors on the buggies.
it is ordered.
I had to do this.
Remove everything from the floor of
my paint room,
the family room.
JWS heated up leftovers while I moved stuff.
(That above will be an important statement to remember for later in the story)
the carpet cleaning guy shows up.
He walks around,
he looks at my nine year old,
never been cleaned carpet
"Do you have pets?"
Some people might take that as an insult.
I should have showed him the first pictures in this post, right?
I told him that I have six grandchildren,
six and under
(Almost sounding like the Amish now.)
Of course, the carpet cleaning man sells carpet also.
I tell him that I will be calling him when Garren graduates.
So, Tuesday the carpet gets cleaned,
Tuesday night, I start to put things back
and that is when I find the contract for
Create and Decorate
and realize that I have missed an important
(not only that but my taxes aren't filed yet,
but we'll leave that for another post)
My head was saying April 30th.
Theirs was April 1st.
OH MY GOSH!
This is getting long,
so I am going to give you the abbreviated version.
Start to pull everything together for a late submission.
The magazine, not the taxes.
Go to work,
JWS to fairgrounds to work
Yes, it is that time of year AGAIN!
I finish up at work at 6:30.
Make a bowl of popcorn.
Nutritious supper, right?
Eat it on the run,
while I finish putting things away in the family room.
Pour a bowl of frozen strawberries and open the microwave.
THERE ARE THE CHEESY POTATOES FROM MONDAY NIGHT!
I set them down on the stove,
warm up my strawberries and
finally sit down in my chair,
leaving the container of cheesy potatoes sitting on the stove.
In the middle of Modern Family,
JWS comes in from the fairgrounds,
goes to the kitchen
and I yell out,
"Don't eat those cheesy potatoes sitting on the stove!"
He ignores me.
He walks in to the living room
muffled and mouth full,
bits of cheesy potatoes
"What did you say?"
How could you not laugh?
Four days old in the fridge,
three days in the microwave...
That can't be good.
The rest is pics.
A newly painted canister set,
Our sewing event at the church is this weekend.
Some dresses already finished.
And the I Spy quilt is back out.
I swear it has been the
four year project.
I am finishing it this year.
Before the kids get too big for it!
I need to post daily.
If you made it this far.
Thanks for sticking with me!
