The Harvest

It's that time of year....the harvest! The garden did very well this year. We've had a ton of raspberries, blackberries, blueberries, bumper crop of summer squash and zucchini, cucumbers, tomatoes, peppers, cantelope, spaghetti squash, butternut squash, pumpkins (picture at a later time!), corn, popcorn, and acorn squash. the deer got the beans. All in all, it was a pretty good year, considering that it didn't rain much this summer.

Here is our latest batch of salsa. When you come, you will get to try our yummy salsa and chips!

Check out this raspberry pie! It is a new recipe I tried...can you tell that we like it :o) Wish you were all here to enjoy it with us.

We also got 300 pounds of honey! Wowzer!! That is a LOT of little honey bears running around here! Gordon always has the biggest grin as he is putting the honey in the containers. He just grins and says 'I earned this honey with all of the stings I got!' They were busy little bees...that includes my busy little bee, Gordon! Let the word out that Gordon is selling his local Maryland honey....and let me just is beyond yummy!!!

I have been a busy bee myself :o) I have been working on a couple of quilts. Here is my first t-shirt quilt. I will be making another t-shirt quilt soon. They will serve as my samples as I try to promote my quilting business...both machine quilting and making memory t-shirt quilts for people. Sooooooo....If you know anyone looking for someone to quilt their quilts or have a bunch of t-shirts they don't wear but want to keep, let them know I will make them a scrapbook quilt full of their memories! (for a price of course ;o)

Sad Dr. Seuss Tail

This is the sad tale of a tail. Periscope had big hairballs and they wouldn't brush out, so Gordon had to take the clippers to her. So now we call her our Dr. Seuss cat! Check out the tail!....

Another ball popper video!

The fun continues!

Fisk famiy visit to Maryland :o)

Bryan and Melissa left a little while ago to go home and I am missing them already. So I decided to post some pictures we took while they were here.

Robyn and popping ball game....

Maddy got one of these for her birthday and I heard how much fun she had, so we got one for Robyn so we could see for ourselves the fun to be had! What a cute game. I think Gordon had almost as much fun as Robyn!

This is my first try at posting a video...'oh boy' as Gordon would say!

Visit to Syracuse and to the Palmayra Pageant

We had a great time when we went to visit Bryan and Melissa and the girls. We went to the pageant also and had a great picnic. I don't do very well writing and posting pictures so I will just try to mostly post pictures!

The Year I Belong in......

You Belong in 1954

You're fun loving, romantic, and more than a little innocent. See you at the drive in!

What Year Do You Belong In?

This was fun! I saw it on Jennifer and Molly's blog so I thought I would give it a try! Am I getting HIP or what?!!
