Last week, I cut off and froze 110 ears of corn. That's a lot of corn. A whole lot.
One year ago today, I was only a mere day overdue, and I knew this baby would come anytime. He waited another 11 days to come! But, here we are, almost celebrating his first birthday. He's a cutie for sure.
If you spill half a bottle of vegetable oil on the kitchen floor, you'll discover a new appreciation for your mop. This is my new mop with a removable microfiber head. I've had it 3 weeks now, and I still love it. It works great, and there is no messy wringing out of mop water. Pretty cool.
I love a good bargain. This week, it was 60 packages of cheese for $42. We have enough cheese for a long time. My step-dad stockpiles MREs and water filtration devices. I stockpile cheese.
If you asked me if I was competitive, I'd tell you "no." But, throw out the prospect of ribbons at the fair, and a different side of me comes out. I'm working on finishing this cross stitch by September for our local fair. Embarrassingly, it was begun in 1987. Yes, that's twenty-two years ago, folks. It's getting done if it kills me.
If your local 4th of July parade involves a man sticking his head in a toilet on a trailer, you might be.... well, you might be us.
And, if that isn't enough, this particular parade includes no less than 3 septic tank trucks. Folks around here are proud of their clean septic tanks, I tell ya. Proud.
We will do many things for free food. Including dress up like cows at Chick-fil-A. I've been waiting for my children to get big enough for Cow Appreciation Day! It was all that.
My husband loved fire engines as a little boy, and somehow, it's in the blood of our firstborn. He isn't really interested in the firemen, though, just the trucks and all their gear.
