I've been told this comes with age. Put me on the back row in the corner. I'll be there.... I'll support you.... but man, SING? It's been a long time. And to let's get real, I don't sound like I used to. My voice control is lazy. Just throwing that question out there.
It's that time of year again. Where to vacation??? Let me share a well kept secret. The vacation of choice last year. A KOOKY little town.

One day has arrived...
They grow up, get jobs, their own apartments, and have seperate lives. You know you're in trouble when your youngest son has 2 different dates on a Saturday.
You know you're really in trouble when the reading glasses come one, and the wrinkles no longer disappear with the latest anti-wrinkle face cream. (I'm the only one mean enough to man handle the aligator)
Have a great day.

I've still checked in with many bloggers, infact tonight we had Baked Macaroni and Cheese from Kimmi's blog, Pink Cookies With Sprinkles. And it was DELICIOUS!
I've seen pictures from your children's weddings....cried at the deaths of loved ones...and happy when you all got to take a little time out, and just enjoy.
In the end...I'm venturing back into this wonderful world of blogging. Posting periodically, and leaving messages rather than just stalk you. I needed the break....I made changes where I needed to, and took risks I never dreamed i would.
Thank you for this past year as you made me smile and sometimes cry. For feeding my family, and letting me quietly live in the background of your lives.

July has been filled with the hectic demands of those not even in my family, and the last week was a struggle as our little ward (church congregation) was smashed with dual tragadies.
We find out we are stronger than we realize when we have to walk blindly into someones life, and attempt to offer them solace....peace....and hope.
But through it all....we smile!! Years ago as I was pulling myself out of my own personal sorrow, my motto was: "Cry when you have to, smile when you can. Just make sure you're smiling more than crying." It got me through, and it will now.
SO...with that, I am ebracing August. I'm going to smile..... Smile..... smile.... Smile..... and it will be a good month.
July brought raspberries galore!! I have literally spent hours in my raspberry patch. And everyday I climbed into that raspberry patch, I was grateful that I would have a little bit of summer in the middle of January. I can't leave you without sharing the EASIEST and I mean EASIEST freezer jam in the world!! This recipe can be used with any fruit......
Pretty, aren't they??? Like I said,
Summer in January.
5 cups mashed fruit
2 cups sugar
3 tblsp. Clear Gel (find at Kitchen Kneads or specialty food store)
1/2 cup Karo syrup
Mash raspberries (fruit), add Karo Syrup
Mix 2 cups sugar and 3 heaping Tblsp. Clear Gel. Slowly add sugar mixture to fruit. MIX THOROUGHLY, put into containers, and freeze!!!
Enjoy your garden.....Enjoy your week!!
