Weekend Recap

What a great weekend!  I got a ton accomplished, and had fun with friends and neighbors.  I got our garage cleaned out, which was no small feat.  I'd been asking Barb Wire Man to do it for awhile, but, you know what they say - "If you want something done right, do it yourself."  So I just got out there and did it.  Of course, I would choose a 100 degree day to do it, but still, it got done.

I had stored some of the kids too-small clothing out there for a day when I could take it to our local thrift store.  We only have one in town, and they only accept donations on Thursdays and Fridays.  I brought all the bags of clothes into the house, so come Thursday, I will surly take them to get them out of my way.

I think I need to have a garage sale, too.  I love to go to garage sales.  I hate to actually have one though.  It is so much work, and I have so many better things to do.  But, I may just buckle down and do it.

I also harvested some more tomatoes out of my garden!  SO EXCITED!  I cannot wait until I have more tomatoes than I know what to do with!  I planted some mint in a container this year too, and it is going crazy.  I think I am going to dry it, so I have plenty of mint for tea come winter!

Little Man and I had a blast on Friday when we went to feed the "ducklins"!  They are so used to people that the geese and ducks will walk right up to you.  They would literally pull the bread out of Little Man's hand, which he wasn't too thrilled with.  Once we ran out of bread, they started nipping at our pockets!  I got a little nervous about being surrounded by 30 ducks, and had to pick him up and run to our car!  We even had ducks and geese trying to get in our car!  I won't lie...it was somewhat traumatic!

I don't think I will be adding too many new items to 13 Plum Knitting this week.  Our town is holding a July celebration on the 7th, and I'm teaming up with a friend to have a booth.  They have a craft show, but we will be outside.  She and her husband will be making jerky and salsa, and I will be selling jelly and rolls (and hopefully some of my crafts as well).  For me, that means making a lot more apricot preserves, and a lot of rolls!  Thankfully, that is something I love to do!  If you are close by, you should come to Hereford that day! From the sound of things, there will be tons of food vendors, tons of arts and crafts vendors, and tons of activities for the family!  Let me know if you want more info, and I can surely get that to you!

Better go start that jelly.  Have a wonderful day, and be blessed!

I enjoy reading every single comment I get, and make every effort to respond to each one...as well as return the favor! I do allow anonymous comments. But, if you use anonymity to hide behind cowardly attacks on my faith or anything else, it will be deleted. Also, if your comment is lewd, vulgar, and full of potty mouth words, I will delete it. Thank you!
