Hi! Well, wouldn’t you know, today I’m in the mood to write, but can’t think of anything to write about.
How are your garden’s doing? My husband’s is looking GREAT. We have eaten asparagus, snap peas, broccoli, cauliflower, onions, potatoes and cabbage & strawberries thus far. I say my HUSBAND’s garden, but really, I am working in it more this year than in the past. I’ve always said, he plants and takes care of it and then I can and freeze when it comes in the house…
Do you preserve stuff from your garden for the winter? I do. My sister does, but I don’t know many other people who do. I have frozen Peas and Broccoli so far this year (in vacuum bags). In a month or so I will be very busy canning tomatoes and green beans. I will also be making Sauerkraut in a week or so. I’ll can it if I have enough.
I have even planted and revamped my flower gardens this year. 2 years ago I had tennis elbow in the spring and just couldn’t do anything and last year it got HOT really quickly so they were looking pretty awful. Well, since I had no GOOD excuse this year, I HAD to do something! I am very pleased with the way they are looking.
Do you remember me talking about the Water Balloon fight we had last year on Father’s Day? You can see some pics here. We’ve decided to do it again this year, we are calling it the “2nd Water Balloon Extravaganza”! My birthday is June 19th and Father’s Day is always the Sunday before. We have invited our kids and grandkids. We all had a lot of fun last year!
We used to have a big July 4th party, but it’s been so stinkin hot the last few years, we decided last year we would do something in June instead. It ended up being about 105 degrees. Oh well, it wast JUST RIGHT for a water balloon fight! One of my grandsons said, “It was the best party EVER”! I think that was because he got to throw water balloons at mom, dad, cousins and sister, aunt, uncles and grandma & grandpa.
Caleb and I are going to try out a new water park. It is called Andy’s Alligator. We have plans to buy season passes to White Water Bay, but now we’re not sure. Have you all been? The one in Norman, OK just opened this month.
Hope you are all safe from the storms last night in Oklahoma. We barely got a thing, but the metro had very LARGE hail and VERY HIGH winds. Lots of power outages. We need rain, but not the damage!
Are you all bored to tears now?? DID you get to the end? WHEW! Thanks for sticking with me.
Have a great WEEK!!
