An entire year?

Wow, has it really been a year since I've posted?  That is just horrible!!

Let's see, farm life keeps me very busy.  This year's canning was very successful.  I canned over 120 quarts of items for my pantry.  I made jellies for the first time and they are yummy.  My new favorite thing to do I think!

Homeschooling is going well and the kids keep me busy with their activities.  The girls just finished riding lessons that ran from April through October and they are also involved in American Heritage Girls. The three youngest participated in a little rodeo at the farm and played four games.  It was a blast!  And the oldest are involved in our church teen group.  TL is working and helping me out whenever he can.  He's just ended scouts with a great trip to Philmont Ranch in NM.  He really loved it.  I'm sad he won't eagle but this troop hasn't exactly been motivational or had great leadership so I understand. 

I've been busy working on knitting items for Christmas and hopefully working on some quilts.  I'm trying to finish up a few things here this week and then hope to focus each weekend on sewing and quilting.  I'll post pictures when I complete the projects.  I haven't even worked on anything for the house; which is awful.  I have so many ideas and things to do.  Just not enough time. 

I hope to post more frequently now to keep accountable for my quilting projects.  Enjoy a wonderful fall weekend!

  1. So nice to have you back. My, how the kids have grown.
    One of my sons didn't make Eagle but he is using all his skills every day as a forest ranger. Some troops are great at inspiring the youth and some are not ... then there are those so fixated on the award that the parents should really be the ones getting it.
