The First Day of Our Blog...

Hi all!!

Not even sure what made us want to blog, but a blogging we will go! Today was quite full for us. Noel took Kelsey to work first thing this morning and he then headed to the farm to get some work done.

Everyone knows the farm and it's official farming business "Valley Greenery" is up and running this year, right? We are growing organic produce and this year we have tomatoes, cucumbers, zucchini, radishes, sweet corn, watermelons, pumpkins, gourds and ornamental corn. We are already planning for next year!

Anyway, while Noel was at the farm throughout the day, I got some laundry done, did some shopping and tried my hand at making some jam. See, between the zucchini that we are growing and the zucchini that our nephew Austin is growing, we literally have zucchini everywhere! So...believe it or not, I made zucchini jam. Not a great attempt, the jam didn't set, but I know Alex will eat it up because it's made with jello and tastes like kool-aid.

Speaking of Alex, she spent the night at her friend Chesney's house. It was Chesney's birthday and she wanted a buddy to help her get ready for the party, so Alex volunteered of course!
Up above is a pic of Alex and Chesney on our vacation to the Outer Banks this year....

After Noel got home from the farm, he and Austin went to brother Joel's to help him out with some home repairs.

Later Noel and I went out for dinner. Our anniversary was on Tuesday, but who wants to go out to eat on a Tuesday night for heavens sake! So, we enjoyed our dinner tonight. We are now just waiting for our girls to return from their nights out so we can head off to bed. Exciting, huh?

Gag me with a spoon! I can't believe that I took time away from job hunting to read about your drama. Luv Bob!
