What We've Been Up To

Been a while since I've updated...been keeping really busy at home! I don't have any pics...but I REALLY need to get better at that! Lately we have been spending ALOT of time outside! Which is alright by me! With the new house and large yard and garden, we have been doing alot of work trying to keep things up! We have all of our garden planted...I believe. We are planning on planting more of some stuff we already have planted, just to keep the harvest going longer. We still have a TON of room left in it, however, so I think I should plant more pumpkins to take up the rest of that space! We planted sweet corn, raspberries, blueberries, onions, potatoes, leeks, beans, peas, broccoli, cabbage, carrots, celery, brussel sprouts, pumpkins, cucumbers, pickles, gourds, flowers (to try and take up room!), popcorn, tomatoes, peppers, watermelons and some herbs (basil, rosemary, parsley, sage, thyme & cilantro). Wow!! Hopefully we have decent produce this year! With the late start and the cooler weather we've been having we better start/keep saying our prayers! We are also putting a wood burning furnace in our house (fuel is WAY TOO expensive) so we've been working on cutting, splitting, sawing and stacking wood to get ready for the winter! I find that I am kind of enjoying doing all that wood work with Barney! It's good bonding time! And the yard...mowing that takes a good evenings worth of time to mow that...but I love the huge yard so I am not complaining too much! We've also been busy with softball once a week and trying to get in a little socializing here and there too! I would like to go fishing a little more, but I've already gone more than last year with the 1 time we went out (we actually did do a lot of sucker fishing earlier)!! There is alot of summer left yet, I hope! With all we've got going on, I must say, the inside housework has been slacking a little, but I guess that is to be expected! Oh well! This coming weekend, we are taking both my little nephews, Gavyn and Gryffin! We have a few fun things planned for them and are really excited to see them and hang out with them! Hopefully one of these days I can take some pics of the different stuff we've been up to...just to find that camera now...
