I can hardly believe the calender says we are
headed into the second week of August!
Summer always seems to fly by.
This past month we have been dealing with
a serious health problem for my dad.
He has melanoma.
Recently the Dr.s visits have been in the city.
None of us enjoys driving to Chicago,
so we have had several train rides back and forth.
Last week he was hospitalized in the city for a few days.
At least we had a great view from his room!
Things are looking good for my dad at this point!
But it will be a few more trips back into the city for follow up visits.
While we were staying in Chicago,
my chicken coop got delivered.
I have the best hubby for making all of this possible
while I was gone!
This week will be spent catching up with all of the garden stuff!
I canned 8 pints of green beans yesterday.
This is just the beginning of the green peppers!
The tomatoes are coming on slow.
But the vines are loaded.
My zinnias have out done themselves this year!
I cut two big buckets full yesterday morning.
They make me smile while I sit on the porch and enjoy them.
We still have a few more projects left to complete
And yes I am still hoping we can sit back to relax
