IS ANYONE STILL THERE?
SUMMER RAMBLINGS 2015...
It's been awhile since my last post....aaah Life gets in the way at times but I'm back. I may be blogging to the computer but then I remind myself of my original reason for blogging in the first place....to chronicle the life and times of my Family and retain much of the oral rich history that sets my family apart. Telling stories has always been a huge part of any Hillis family event. Therefore, Along with "telling" more stories, I will still incorporate my quilting and other Blog projects which may include something from the garden, Mr. Tractor's shed, my sewing room, or the Grandpeeps' adventures.
A UFO in the HOOP
for a little
Scott (7) and I went to the Park "like old times" he said referring to the timed when he stayed with me before he got old enough to attend pre-school. Geez, I miss that little side-kick! He and I were buddies from age 6m-4 yrs. old. This slide presented a HUGE barrier for Scott who is deathly afraid of heights. He wanted me to see how BRAVE he was now!! I watched with a secret tear in my eye...all you Grandmama's know what I mean!
Now that summer has arrived...IT'S TIME...TOMATO SANDWICH TIME
I CAN LIVE ON TOMATO SANDWICHES
(lOCAL FAVORITE IS FLOWERS WHITE BREAD)
(CRACKED BLACK PEPPER FOR VARIETY)
AND THIS LITTLE/BIG GRANDPEEP
CLAY 11 1/2
Has become quite the Stand-Up Comedian!
Being the quietest of the 7 Grandpeeps, Clay's growing interest in Drama and Stand Up Comedy is quite the pleasant surprise!
Currently, KNOCK-KNOCK jokes and Puns are Fan Favorites
So, that's all for today. Just a Plethora of News from the Farm.
Tomatoes are beginning to ripen so Canning those beauties will be HIGH on my T0-Do List in the coming few weeks. I can NEVER put up enough to make it all the way through winter. I'm always looking for new Super Salsa recipes and any other Tomato based canning recipes that are tried and true winners with your family...send my way!
