Catch up....

Man I am horrible at this blogging. I do enjoy it so I keep it going. Things are going pretty good around here. I have been dong better with my diet and exercise. I am in two challenge groups and hoping to seriously lose 10 pounds this month of October. I am in a Crock pot challenge where we share crockpot recipes. I love using my crockpot but I don't have a lot of meals that I cook in it so I am hoping to get some good ideas. I had to take a before picture so I thought I would share with y'all.

I have lost 50 pounds now!

I love this time of the year. The persimmons are falling and I have been gathering them and straining out the sweet pulp. I love persimmon pudding I made one with Splenda sweetener and it was good. We have so many that I am trying to sell the pulp and make myself a little spending money. 

I have picked up 3 or more of these dish pan full

Here are a few bags ready to sell.
We have been blessed to be able to buy the Farmer's grandma's house. It has 5 persimmons trees on it, a huge grape vine, black walnut trees, pecan trees a peach tree and a fig tree. Oh that reminds me my little fig tree has 3 figs on it. I thought I had a picture of the figs but I don't sorry.

Oh yeah I wanted to share a picture of Tom the cat. He was one of grandma's cats and he now lives at Pops house. He likes pops the best. We also have a black cat that still lives at grandmas house. Her name is Blackie and she has 2 kittens. I will try to get a picture of her but her kittens are not tame. I am trying to talk seth into getting a cat.

He is a sweet cat but he will not let you pick him up. 
Well I guess this is enough about nothing. Stop for stoping by.


  1. Are you sure that is a "before" picture? You look great! Will you be moving into your grandma's house? How much do you sell the persimmon pulp for? You are so smart! Love you Vicki!
