Well I don’t even know where to begin…this place has been a mad house plain and simple. When I use the term mad house I truly mean it in so many ways! Since my last check in a lot has happened. Joe has the shop/2nd garage underway, S is reminding us she is three daily going on sixteen, K is trying to give us a heart attack climbing on EVERYTHING, and oh yeah we have become puppy sitters as much as friends and family are willing to share their furry friends with us! Baking and cooking with our amazing garden fruits and vegetables and lastly, I sadly lost a cousin who was far to young to leave this beautiful world. So, as said Mad House!
As far as construction goes…it’s well underway! In three weeks Joe did the footings, block and framed. This has meant very long days for both of us. With Joe handling the work himself having sometimes one person here helping his body is exhausted. With this being said we have decided we are going to complete the shop 100% and begin the home addition in spring!
S started pre-k last week at our local Montessori school and she absolutely loves it! The once little sweet, kind, well-mannered, smart girl of ours is growing up and along with all her wonderful attributes comes one we are struggling to get a grip on…Her Mouth! Holy Toledo have the past three weeks been rough. From telling us she is sending us to Georgia to live, to saying she’s going to spank our butts, throw us in the garbage, or utilizing damn it when totally appropriate but it is so NOT appropriate! I/We are excited to see a little different structure in our little princesses life.
The he kids and I have taken on a new love for our garden. As our vegetables came in full force over these past few weeks. We also had friends drop off about two pounds of blueberries to us. We have been canning our grape tomatoes adding some fresh basil, oregano and thyme. These little tastes of heaven have been great on just about everything or just to pop as a snack! With our zucchini we made chips! With the blueberries bread and cupcakes! S and K love helping in the kitchen which always makes me happy! They get just as passionate as I about what we are creating!
Well I look forward to checking back sooner than later.
One last note as I mentioned my cousin passed. He was twenty-nine years old. He passed of a blood clot in his lungs. I would just ask that those of you following please stay ahead of your health. Unfortunately, my cousin didn’t as well as being challenged with obesity. Please take care of yourselves and those you are surrounded by.
