Summer Fun

What a great weekend I had. I watched my girls Friday ,Saturday and Josh and Jackie came home on Sunday. I know the girls will agree we had fun. We did some shopping, went to Heritage Park, played in the yard, played in the house and did more shopping.

Lael was a great help, with Lauren and cooking and cleaning up. Alyssa helped clean up and had fun , Lauren just had fun. She slept good, my biggest concern, and smiled and laughed. She is a real cutie!!!!!!!!

Sunday we enjoyed a bbq by Josh before I Had to leave. That was very , very good. I wish we lived closer so we could enjoy more time like this.

Here are some photos.

My friend Kathy got me to go strawberry picking with her. I loved it!! You do not realise how many you have picked I got over 20 lbs. Then for the first time I made strawberry Jam with Kathy's help. It is very good, I have 18 jars of jam, 12 quart bags stuffed in my freezer. In July we are picking blue berries. I can't wait for that. Blueberry is John's favorite pie.

Yesterday, was very nice. My dad and I went to Pine Knolls church and to my surprise Isaiah6 was there. He was very good, my dad even enjoyed it. Later we relaxed with a boat ride on JP's boat and then a trip to the racino. He just loves to go there.I have lost my d
esire to loss my money, so I walk around with him. He usually wins but this time he lost.

It is not raining yet so I am headed outside to do some rock work and later go to work. Everyone have a great day.

Winter is just around the corner

That is how I am thinking. I am already stocking up on food, dry goods and cans. John and JP got our chest freezer into the house this past weekend. I am very excited about that. I went to Price Rite and Price Chopper and stocked up on meat that was on sale. I figure on doing that whenever there is a good sale. We are also looking to get a half or whole cow depending on size and split it with Jackie and Josh. Also maybe 2 pigs in the fall. I am not an alarmist but this winter is going to be hard. I want to be prepared. For heat we have alot of log length hard wood , about ten cords, we have to split and put into the wood shed. This is the first time I ever prepared like this.

Other then that everything is going good. John is in Buffalo, NY. He will be there for 6-8 weeks doing a Stride-Rite store. I hope to get out there some time in the next few weeks.

We have no big plans this summer. We would like to get our side deck down. It will be 30'x12', nice size. I can't wait. Then in Sept. we are planning to go camping with Jackie and Josh and girls of course. It is still in the planning stage. We have to see where John will be. We all hope it works out. In a couple of weeks I will be up in Canton watching the girls for the weekend. Jackie and Josh are taking a well needed vacation alone. I can"t wait. I love the idea of having them all to myself. Hello stores!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

well it is starting to cool off I want clean the kitchen and relax. Hope you are too.
