Life has been busy the past couple of weeks. I bottled, froze, and dehydrated some peaches. I also dehydrated some more zucchini. (I have had at least 20 zucchinis this year and almost as many cucumbers! ) I painted my bench for my garage, washed and sorted through about 10 dozen bottles, and started cleaning out my side of the garage. Plus I've been a single mom with my husband working 12+ hour days. Kudos to those that are single all of the time! I don't think I could do it. Needless to say, life is busy :) but so good.
Last Saturday, I was able to keep my hubby home and go on a much needed date with him. We went to "Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dream Coat". I must say that the production was top notch and so fun to watch.  I enjoyed the play, but must admit that it isn't my favorite one. Overall, I'm glad that we were able to go. It was so fun to be together and spend time with each other.
Yesterday I was so excited to stumble upon dairy free milk and gluten free cereal for my Extraordinary little boy. That gave me the motivation to jump into a dairy free and gluten free (GFCF) diet to see if it will help him. I purchased supplies today to make the transition smoothly (hopefully). I decided to try it for a few months and then go from there. I have found some helpful books to guide my way and am starting to collect some recipes. Hopefully they are tasty :)
Tonight I went in to check on child #2 and found him asleep on the floor with a bare bum. He is known to fall asleep almost anywhere (much like his dad), but he usually has his clothing on. :) It was so funny that I had to take a picture! Alas, I will not post it on here because this is a public blog. However, if you read my private blog, I will post it there :) I slipped on his underwear and put him to bed.

Random funny things

My oldest came up to me last weekend and said "Mom, I think I'm hungry." He paused and then said "Yep, I'm hungry."  He was so serious, but it was so funny, I had to laugh.
Bubba was sad that he couldn't go to school with Big Guy today. I told him he wasn't old enough. He looked and me and said "I want to get old". Then after school, when we picked up Big Guy, Bubba said, "Mom, I'm old now. That means I can go to school too!"
I was talking to my nephew and his girlfriend via facebook today. I hate to admit it, but I had to use an "Internet Slang" dictionary to look up what they were saying to me. It's like shorthand for the computer! Ugh! I decided I must be out of it because I had to look up so many words :)

Tomatoes coming out my ears

I have been preserving this week. It started off with corn (I froze it). Then I have moved on to tomatoes. I had almost 2 bushel to preserve. So I started with chili sauce, 2 different salsas, & crushed tomatoes. Then I finished off with half tomatoes. I was getting ready to finish up the half tomatoes and said "I feel like I have tomatoes coming out of my ears!" My little Bubba looked in my ear and replied "Yep, I can see one!" It made my day :)
