Delaware State Fair 09

July 28, 2009

This week is state fair week. I always look forward to this time of the year. I guess I’m just a kid at heart. I love walking around and looking at all of the competitions and exhibits. This year I took my 12 yr. old granddaughter. It’s fun looking at things through their eyes! I was really surprised that she didn’t care for going through the barns where the cows, pigs, sheep were. She said they stinked! But when we walked past the chickens she wanted to go in there! Boy there were some BIG roosters in there! I think some of them were as big as my Jack Russell terrier! And the one eye beatty look one gave us over it shoulder was deadly! I promised her one ride maybe 2, with me with her on one, well I got her on the Himalaya, she had never been on that one; after that mom-mom was finished for the day. She went on to ride the air glide, and the tilt-a-whirl. She looked like she was done after all of that!

The temp. was 90 degrees and hot in the shade. As we walked back down to the front gate to look for a hat for hubby, we saw Mc Donald”s McCoffee, they were giving away free samples, so she had the mocha and I had the vanilla, I don’t care for it , but she loved hers. Then I remembered the caffeine. Uh-Uh, hyper here we come! LOL~! Wasn’t to bad, she just talked, and talked, and talked!  Loved it! By the time we left we were all tired and happy. Another year of fun 🙂

UPDATES FINALLY

July 13, 2009

SURE HAS BEEN AWHILE SINCE POSTING, I’VE BEEN VERY BUSY THIS MONTH. JULY AND AUGUST IS ALWAYS THE BUSIES TIMES FOR OUR HOUSEHOLD. THAT IS THE TIME THAT EVERYTHING WE WANT TO DO OR SEE OR GO HAPPENS! LOL!  THE JOB I INTERVIEWED FOR I TURNED DOWN, SORT OF A LETDOWN BUT I REALLY DIDN’T WANT TO HAVE TO TRAVEL TO BALITMORE FOR COURT, OR TO TESTIFY. THE TRAFFIC AND THE HASSLES JUST WASN’T WORTH IT. SO MAYBE SOMETHING ELSE WILL FALL IN MY LAP, I AM REALLY TIRED OF BEING BEHIND THE CHAIR AND ALL THE DRAMA AROUND ME AT WORK.  I GUESS I’M GETTING OLDER??!!

WE HAVE BEEN DOING ALLOT OF CAMPING AND LOVE IT. FOURTH OF JULY WEEKEND WE SPENT CAMPING AND WENT TO A BEACH PARTY, COMPLETE WITH THE LIMBO DANCE AND ALOT OF LINE DANCING ON THE BEACH. WHAT A BLAST.  THE FIREWORKS WERE SET OFF OF THE PIER , JUST BEAUTIFUL TO LOOK AT ON THE WATER. WE LIKE THE CAMPGROUND WE GO TO AND WE HAVE BOOKED SEVERAL WEEKENDS THIS MONTH COMING UP. WE CAN EVEN TAKE JACK WITH US; HE IS LEARNING TO SWIM!

100_0758ONE DAY A CHESAPEAKE RETRIEVER WAS TRAINING ON THE BEACH; RETRIEVING A DUMMY BUOY, JACK WATCHED AND WATCHED THAT, THEN DECIDED THAT HE COULD DO IT TOO. HE REALLY DIDN’T KNOW HE COULDN’T SWIM THAT FAR OUT!  I WOULD’NT LET HIM EITHER!

I TOOK A VACATION WEEK AFTER THE FOURTH TO RECHARGE AND TO GET THINGS DONE AROUND HOME THAT I HAVEN’T HAD TIME TO GET TO. IT’S BEEN A BUSY ONE, I PICKED BLACKBERRIES AND MADE JAM AND JELLY, AND THEN PICKED SOME MORE FOR A FRIEND OF OURS TO MAKE OUR WINE OUT OF100_0757. THAT SHOULD BE GOOD!  ONE OTHER DAY I PULLED MY BEETS FROM THE GARDEN AND PICKLED THEM; BOY I HAD BEET JUICE EVERYWHERE!!  I’M GLAD THAT’S OVER WITH!  I WANT TO MAKE SOME MORE BLACKBERRY JAM IF I HAVE THE TIME. THE PEPPER RELISH WON’T BE READY TO MAKE UNTIL LAST OF JULY OR FIRST OF AUGUST. I’M GLAD. HUBBY AND I WENT FOR ALOT OF DAY TRIPS TOO, WE WENT TO THE TUCAHO STEAM ENGINE SHOW IN EASTON, I ALWAYS LIKE THAT IT’S AWSOME TO SEE SOME OF THOSE BIG STEAM ENGINES WORKING.

ONE DAY HUBBY SAID “LET’S TAKE A RIDE OUT FOR LUNCH”. OK, LET’S GO. SOMEHOW GOING OUT TO LUNCH TURNED INTO BUYING A NEW TRUCK! SMOOTH MOVE, I SHOULD HAVE KNOWN, HE’S BEEN TALKING ABOUT A NEW COLOR TRUCK THAT FORD HAS OUT!  IT WAS A GREAT DEAL SO WE CAME HOME WITH A NEW FORD. SO FUNNY!

TODAY HAS BEEN CLEANING DAY, MY GOODNESS DID THIS HOUSE NEED IT!! IT HAS BEEN LEFT ALONE FOR 2 WEEKS AND IT WAS BAD.  SO NOW I HAVE FINISHED THE CLEANING AND EVERYTHING IS SPARKLING CLEAN AND SHINING. I QUIT!!   HUBBY JUST SAID” WANT TO GO OUT TO LUNCH?”ABSOLUTLY I’M GONE!!!  SEE YA 🙂

Happy Fourth of July
