For some crazy reason, penguins always make me happy.
It's been a strange week. I don't know what's been going on, but I've zipped through this past 6 days or so and haven't the foggiest idea what I've done with it. Not so much, one suspects. lol
I did get all the information for my food preservation workshop completed. For the take home booklet that's being prepared. It's ridiculous-I should have had it finished weeks ago. But, it's finished now and sent off to the woman who will publish it. We're going to can green beans, but I will give presentations (and samples) of drying and freezing and fermenting as well.
Sunday will be extremely busy, it's our District Picnic and then work and then at 8 PM a birthday meeting where I'm giving out a coin for 3 years. I'll be a mess in a dress by the time I get home.
Yesterday I took a 3 hour drive south to see my baby brother who has just had his 3rd back surgery. I loaded up Miss Roxie and we sailed off....she's a good traveling companion and did pretty well with my brothers cockapoo. Had a nice lunch with a Taco Soup she made that was delish, and then sat around and talked . My niece got home around 3 from school and we played with her Wii and chatted about school. They insisted that I stay for supper and so my plans of being back home by 8 got shot out of the water. Skyler wanted me to stay all night, lol, but I said I had to go. As usual, my SIL cooked a magnificent supper. She rocks.
While I was there, I got a really sad phone call from my baby sister, telling me her daughter had lost her baby. She was almost 4 months pregnant. Today she went into the hospital for a D&C, and I'll go by and see her tomorrow...
I have a splitting headache that came out of nowhere tonight. It's only 11 o'clock and I'm ready to go to bed....
On a lighter note, I got the birth announcement for my great nephew yesterday, in the form of a beautiful photo that says "HI. I'M ROWAN above his gorgeous little face. Hopefully I get to see him next week.
We harvested edamame today from the garden. There is a lot that dried on the vines, so I am going to try to keep that for seed for next year. It was a real bust this year, compared to last year's harvest...
All for now..I need to lie in a dark room with my eyes closed. I took some Aleve but nothing seems to be helping. (And no, it's not a migraine).
Have a hunky dory weekend, all ya'll. I have to bake a coconut cream for my friends birthday on Sunday, as well as something for the potluck picnic.
I'm thinking of joining a book club that my friend goes to. Have I lost my mind????????
