Are we going to get rain?  This is the question that everyone is asking today.   Are we going to get any of the spin off rain from Tropical Storm Cindy?    This is a great question for me to ask weather grandson!

I really didn't make any big plans today, because I figured we would have rain all day.....   NONE, right now!!

So....guess what today is?   IRONING DAY!

That's right.....I still Iron!!   I actually iron quite a bit.  I do take a few things to the cleaners, but for the most part, I iron our clothes.

I really don't mind though.   Actually, it's kind of relaxing!!!  

Wow....what a bargain!!  $14.90 for both.    

Funny how the smallest of things can take you back to your childhood days.   I remember as a child,  my mother taking some of our clothes to be ironed.   There was a lady in town who ironed for a living.   I would often ride with mother to take the clothes there, or to go pick them up.   

I sure wish I could think of this lady's name.   I do remember the cost.....for a while, she charged 10 cents a piece for each item to be ironed.   Later, it went up to 15 cents!!    This is CHEAP!!

My mom would laundry the clothes and then take them to be ironed.   

I love this memory that I had today....

A big Happy Father's Day to all you guys out there!!

Is it still Summer?   We have been so Busy around here that I've barely had the time to look at a calendar.   I'm posting a few pictures of what our past few weeks have been like.   You all will have to excuse my laziness.  I didn't even put these pictures in any kind of particular order.    

Making Hot Sauce and Salsa......My recipe calls for lemons and limes.  The girls and I, canned for two days and I think the kids have already eaten 4 jars of hot sauce!!!!  YIKES!  looks like I need to do a lot more canning...

We made some with black beans and corn and the rest is just the normal hot sauce!!  Do you like sweet hot sauce or vinegar tasting hot sauce??   Our family likes the sweet stuff...

I love looking at all of the jars filled with good tasting greatness!

I think we filled 52 jars!!  Not near enough!!

These pictures are from the end of May.....   Sam and I attended a Scholarship luncheon with Tucker!  So, So, Proud of him!

This particular scholarship was awarded to him from the Kiwanis Club of Athens....   He also received The "Red Bird" scholarship from TVCC.   Way to go Tuck!!  

Pulled this picture from off of my phone.    Tucker and Trista, as the seniors walked the halls of the schools...   He is a distinguished Grad....The other side of his sign read something like, "Childhood Cancer Survivor."

Shipping cookies to Tyler and his classmates!   I sent them each a box filled with cookies, Pizza gift card and several other goodies....

Back to Tucker's graduation!!  I made him a "Wisdom Jar."  Each little one of these diploma looking rolls, was rolled with money inside.....and of course....A word of Wisdom for his future!! 
He had a great time reading all of the bits of Wisdom that his grandmother (Shug) gave him..

Cookies for Tucker's graduation Party.....

Decorations for his party.....The Theme...."Oh the Places you will go"

More decorations!!
