Things that have been Happening -7/4/2012

Some things that have been happening since my last post....
Lets see where to start and it won't be in chronological  order by any means cause to much has happened.
So, the new garden is in and growing beautifully, Thank the Lord.
We have finished another year in our home school adventure. Amazing that we are both still breathing, and wanting to give it another try for another year. I do say that with some hesitation, but have purchased new curriculum for the coming year.
We had to say go bye to a real love in our family. Tasha was 13 1/2 years old. She went deaf last summer and she was slowing down to the point where she didn't want to get up due to pain in her joints. She was sick but the quality of life was gone and summer was her hardest time since she was so full of thick hair. We didn't want her to suffer the last days of her life so we laid her to rest in March.
In April we brought home a new family member and she is a real treat as well as beautiful.
She is going to be a real asset to this ranch.
She is a Rhodesian Ridgeback. And OH MY GOODNESS, I love her.
I have been working on the same quilt since early January and am having a real struggle keeping it going.
I have gone back to work on Saturdays just to add more to the daily things to have to do, but I Thank God for that too. It has helped in these times of struggle with the cost of Everything continuing to go up.
I did get to go to Quilt in a Day in May.
I purchased enough fabric to build a quilt to cover a king sized bed and more. I just need to get busy with doing it though.
Like I told Angie over at A Quilting Reader's Garden, I keep having to do things like can tomatoes.
I have been learning a lot more about nutrition these last few months and I would like to fire my doctor.
But that is not up for discussion.
I have been making wallets to sell on HopeNMotion on Etsy lately. Another blessing.
So with all that said on this Cool July 4th, 2012, I guess that is all for now.

Zucchini needs something done with it, more bread maybe.
