I knew today was going to be a busy day. We have had rain for a couple of days, so my garden needed picking very badly. I had several tomato plants that had blew over with the storm. So first thing this morning, I put my overalls and rubber boots on and headed to the garden. I had to stake the tomato plants back up and then I started picking vegetables. It was so muddy in places, that I actually had to take my hands and pull my boots up out of the mud. But that didn't stop me. I got everything picked except my peas. Some of my gourds are ready too. I will be working on that tomorrow morning. Then I came in the house and got cleaned up. Then I started a pot of My Mom's potato soup for my "Sweet sister in law"! They are going to the lake this weekend and this was our way of saying thank you for us getting to stay at their lake house last weekend. I picked up some cornbread muffins from the Cracker Barrel to go with the soup. I had a pecan pie in the freezer for their dessert. I also fixed her a basket of garden vegetables for her to take with them. She loves to cook so I knew she would enjoy this. Then, I went and had lunch with my "Sweet grandaughter, Alyssa" at her school. She is so sweet. When I drove up to the school, I saw my 5 yr. old "Sweet grandson, Brett" standing on the playground, but he was against the chain link fence. I walked over to see him and found out he was in trouble! His teacher said he has a problem interupting her. I could tell he wanted to go with me, but he was a big boy! I told him to be good. He was so cute. After delivering the food to my sister in law, I came home and started on my vegetables. I made some vegetable soup for our supper and then I froze all the other veges I had picked. My "Sweet Honey" had been over in the mountains today, so he brought home some apples and fried apple pies. They were so good! It was a very full day, but I am so thankful!
