Quick post....that turned long

Well things are going alright around here. We are having hard time to get our tomatoes to live out at Grandmas house. We have lost several of plants that looks like they got a blight. We figured from all of the rain and humidity we have been having. The tomatoes at our house are doing good. they are pretty and have tomatoes on them.  We have little cucumber coming on and squash. Our half runner beans are so pretty I really hope they do well I am planning on selling them if they do.

We have 2 rows of strike beans at grandmas house we should have plenty of beans if the hot weather don't hurt them and if we keep getting some rain along.

I am trying one egg plant I have never grown one. I hope it does well

We have 2 rows of half runner beans they are blooming but no beans yet
The farmer got our first harvest of cucumbers and yellow squash today. 

I checked the persimmon trees they are loaded with little green persimmons. I hope that I have another bumper crop this year. 

We have wild blackberries growing on the fence. The Farmer and I picked a small basket today. 

These are growing up into the cedar tree.

Here are the blackberries we picked today.

I got a ladies night out with Joytime and the church lady friends. We had a great time. We went and ate at the steak house in Randleman. I had a filet with sautéed veggies and a baked sweet potato. It was so yummy. The Joytime event was at Adaumont Farm in Trinity. 

Here is a picture of the place I borrowed from their page on FB. 
Big Daddy Weave was there I love his music

Here we are outside the barn in the picture. 
It was beautiful. Well I guess I better close here this quick post is getting long. Thanks for stopping by.

Well I was planning on writing a blog about how the garden was coming along even with all the rain we have been having lately. I finally got out today without rain and forgot to take pictures of the garden. Sometimes I really worry about my mind and being so forgetful. But don't they say when you think something is wrong with your memory there probably isn't. I hope that this is true. I feel to young to be having problems but I guess it can affect you at any age. Oh well this is getting off track of gardening.

I have taken some pictures of the flowers in the yard.

My Yarrow blooming

My hollyhock  are almost ready to bloom

Finally made it back to the the farm house (aka grandmas old house)  to get pictures of the garden out there.

Mother's Day

I hope everyone had a wonderful Mother's Day. I enjoyed mine. I had my picture taken with my boys. They are growing so much. I guess I can not really call them boys any more they are grown men!! We had a great Mother's Day weekend We did a lot of shopping and I was proud that the guys made it through all of it. We really had a good time other than I hate to shop but I did find some new outfits. All the while wishing my mom was here to still make my clothes she was the best seamstress ever. She made all of mine and my sisters shorts, skirts and jumpers. We had the best clothes ever and all of the latest fashions

I miss my mom. Here are a few pictures of me and my mom. 

Me and my mom right after I was born.

Not long after having my first son and less than a year before passing away. 
I also go a new beachbody nutrition plan 2B Mindset. I am on my second week and I have already lost 5 pounds I feel like it is mostly water weight but it is a beginning right! Wish me luck
Well thanks for stopping by.

It is May

May is a great month but it is also kinda of a sad month since Mothers Day is this month. I miss my mom so much.

Well it is finally getting warm around here and I have wore shorts a couple of times. The Farmer planted the garden I am so ready to get fresh vegetables. Our potato patch is coming up pretty good and our onions. We are trying to grow red onions. The Farmer set out half-runner green beans, strike green beans, pickling cucumbers, spaghetti squash, zucchinis, yellow squash, and better boy tomatoes. We planted beets and they are starting to come up. I want to plant some peppers and egg plants.


Red onions
Flowers are coming out everywhere. I am so excited about that to. I bought these holly hocks last year on the clearance rack for 50 cent a piece I kept them alive all winter I hope they bloom I wonder what color they will be???

Catch up!!!

Wow I did not realize that it has been so long since a made a post. I have been out of wack with my self. But I am back on track. I fell off the wagon hard. I finished 80 day obsession. I am proud of myself for not missing a day and finishing all 80 days. I was discouraged with myself because I could see no change in my before pictures and after and my inches did not change very much!! I just keep saying I need to get my nutrition on track and I have not been  doing it. I started 2 new books and they are helping me.
If you are a woman that tells yourself lies this is a good book!!

A great devotional 
I started 80 day obsession back today and I am determined to get my nutrition on track. Almost half  the years is gone and I have not lost not one pound. Well that is about to change. 

I have been lazy about taking pictures. We got Netflix and I am addicted to watching all the seasons of Grey's Anatomy!! Every free chance I get I am watching tv. So sad but I love it!! Here are a few pictures I have taken.

Pardon this picture of me My husband thinks I a beautiful all the time. Love him!!

Snowball bush is covered in blooms can not wait until it totally opens

I have had a haircut and a birthday since I posted. I did not have much cut off just a inch or 2 and layers cut in.
before hair cut

I had a good birthday. I got a birthday cake and it was yummy! That did not help my nutrition but is was good. I took a picture after I had already eaten some of it. 

I got the cutest rooster for my birthday also. I got a lot of new work out clothes A new water bottle a new bible journal. I am still trying to decide if I am going to get me a Cricut craft cutting machine. I want one really bad but they cost a good amount of money.
