A personal blog for fun...to share recipes, diy projects, sometimes gardening, camping and/or a rescued dog or two.
I BLOG FOR FUN...
Feel free to pin photo's from this blog...I'm not one of those blogger's that will flip out and go on a rant about you "stealing" my photo's because you liked it enough to share it, lol. I am not a "professional decorator, cook, gardener" or "professional" anything else....I BLOG FOR FUN. Nope....not one of the perfect blogger's here. My house is not perfect, and you will never be led to believe it is. I simply cannot offer you "how-to's", nor will I leave comment's on your blog offering decorating advice...sorry. If you are one of the "professional blogger's" as I refer to so many of them these days, I simply am not interested in your invite to your linky parties...with YOUR strict instructions to follow YOUR rules, lol, in order to increase YOUR traffic. If your not here for enjoyment, then this simply isn't the blog for you.
Random farm happenings
It has been so busy here at the farm, as it always is this time of year....
That is green beans in the bags. I am not canning anything that I don't have to this year!!! Snapping, washing, blanching and bagging was much easier and faster. I did numerous bags of corn too, I guess I didn't get pics of it. Actually, this is just the beginning of the canning/freezing.
These are the sweet pickles that hubby thinks that he can't live without.
Can you see that I raided Memaw's hydrangea bush?? She said that I could. I need some prettiness in the kitchen as much time as I spend in here.
My sweet Sophie and I did a 5K in Oxford on the morning of July 4th for the Oxford/Lafayette animal shelter. Those people are the best!! From here on, we will be participating in all that we can to help them out. This was Sophie before the race.......
This was Sophie after the race. You would think she actually had to walk, but all that she did was ride. I knew something wasn't right because normally she would have been talking to everyone that looked at her, but she didn't. Come to find out, she was sick, and stayed sick for the next two days....poor thing, and I had her out socializing her.
Now....look at this doll baby. This is Tootsie. She is a six month old mini golden doodle. Oh so sweet!! She was the life of the place. She knows that she is a doll, and she didn't meet a stranger anywhere. She was also very well behaved. She knew her commands, and did as her mom told her, with the sweetest smile on her face each and every time. Yes......I tried to bring her home with me, but her mom just wasn't cooperative!
She didn't even know this lady in this picture, but she gave her sugars and was so happy to do so.
Just a doll!!!
Yes, I just had to throw this pic in here, as I am huge Rebel fan. Isn't it pretty?? To me, the whole town of Oxford is so pretty. It is full of character, and charming houses with beautiful yards/landscaping. The town is not too big, and not too small. I drooled the whole run/walk at the houses that we went past, but didn't get any pics of them.
