Well, I've been pretty absent on here the last year because I was working 40 plus hrs off farm and ta boot it was 2nd shift, I am a MORNING person! So besides sleeping til 11am and dragging myself(because I sometimes had pies to bake when I got home at midnight to go out for orders the next morning, the dogs always had to go out in the night and we had to really watch our older heeler, she was on meds for seizures and just wasn't doing well. She ended up abruptly loosing her sight in one eye and the other could barely see anything, we had to have her put to sleep as tumor was growing to an unbearable measure. I did a few cakes, donated a porch swing for the community celebration of my husbands hometown. We just opened our last jar of ketchup, still have about 8 qrts of juice left, spaghetti sauce has been gone, still have applesauce, all the jam is gone, ugh!!! Time to plant garden and start all the food canning all over again. We've had many calves born, sold a lot, lost twin calves, bought a handful of cows out of a bad situation and they r doing pretty good 8 months later. I've gotten my sitting room almost completely redone....I had to patch some of the plaster and lathe with drywall and I've stripped the paint of the ornate door hinges and we found the wooden replacement parts the go on the doors behind the door knobs. I got a new screen door and put it on the tenants trailer. My hubby has been soooo busy too. So, I decided, since I hadn't really seen my hubby in almost a year, that I would push my cake business, push the porch swings and I'm making the soaps, shampoos, conditioners, and lotions now too. I still work at the hotel front desk but only a couple days a week dayshift. I get to see my hubby! I get to go to bed by 10:30 most nights! I get to get up in the morning! Yea, me! I think my publisher is tired of waiting for me to finish my book though so hopefully I can get that buttoned up in the next couple months. And I think because I have a newer iphone now it's not letting me post pics so they will have to wait till I get on the computer. I am anxious to get start surfing all the blogs I've missed these many months.
