... green beans- 9 inches tall. (except the ones Rags trampled)
... 2 hostas given to me, planted, and growing healthy already.
... wave petunias, i trimmed them back 2 times. now i hope they grow like crazy.
...allysum, i planted it 4 weeks ago, it was so wild and wooly already that i snipped off 2 inches.
...did you know that *some* sweet potato vine that you plant, will actually grow a sweet potato?
it happened after 2 years of growing, i found a large one under the dirt.
...  zoe had 2 puppies. a boy and a girl. they are 3 weeks and 4 days old. adorable.
... i mowed the lawn thursday.
... it was 96 Fahrenheit the other day. (my a/c works, thank goodness)
...i baked 4 dozen cookies on friday.
... we are still here. the business has not sold. and we wonder what ever God has in mind for us. it has us scratching our heads...
... i built a fence around my garden. a row of little garden fencing. then a pile of branches. then another row of fence. so far Rags has only tried once to get through it. i think he caught on that branches and such are not to be tangled with.
... i go home in 6 days. for 11 days. i am beyond excited. well i am not excited about the fact that since this business is still ours james is not coming along. that is not cool.
... in 10 days my very very dear child hood friend Crystal is marrying her favorite guy.
... my etsy store is still closed. anybody have a motivational speech for me?
... i am tired.


  1. Motivational speech? All I can say is the busier I am the more things I say I'll do... Like in my immediate forecast (this month and next) I have a baby announcement order, 2 wedding dresses to sew and I signed up to teach a class of 17 in Bible School... also I'm room mother for Caleb's class so throw last day of school activities in there... and we're having our 15th (!!!) anniversary next month so we're taking off a few days to a cabin in NC... I work better under pressure so should be getting LOTS done in the next two months!!! After spending all week getting ready for the bridal shower I helped put on last night I'm ready to curl up and hibernate for a while! :)

  2. {don't ask me what my house is gonna look like for the next two months...}

    1. ya and all the laundry you'll have to do and food to prepare and boys to train and a husband to keep happy ;)...I know all about it!!

    2. please, please don't ask me what my house looks like now!!!

  3. Jenn, just keep plugging along! It's ok if your etsy shop is closed for now! Maybe sometime you'll get bored and wish for signs to make again!! xoxo

  4. Can't wait to see you and laugh with you :)

  5. You will bring more sunshine to sunny Alberta! Etsy? there is a season for everything. Motivation will come as needed.
    Get your rest. There won't be time for rest when you come 'home'.
