Where Has the Summer Gone?

The kids are back in school already - and of course, we are scheduled to have some of the hottest days of the summer.  It was a fun summer.  I really enjoyed having all the grandkids for the summer.  We watched a lot of movies, ate some good lunches and had quite a few giggles.  The older three have all returned to school - Krissy in 8th grade, James in 5th grade, and Izzy in 1st grade. And next Wednesday, Jake starts preschool three mornings each week.  I know that I will still have all of them after school, but it saddens me that my days of keeping the kids while their moms work are coming to a close.  Rod says to appreciate the years they are all in school because it will just be a few more years until I have him all day.  I look forward to that time.

My new Etsy store, The Frozen Mouse is doing fairly well.  I'm having so much fun working with all the different Disney fabrics.  And coming up with new ideas is always a challenge.

This weekend, Rod is starting to put up a new shed.  The old one has seen better days.  Not surprising since it was built the summer of 1976.  I helped a lot with that one, even did shingles.  This one will be a different story since I don't have the mobility that I did then. Hopefully, some of the kids will be around to help when he needs them. I've been planning some food that I can make ahead so that it's ready to eat when the "carpenters" are.  I've decided to make some pinwheel appetizers with flavored cream cheese and lunch meats.  And also some sliders made like subs.  And I want to have plenty of cold drinks.  Hope you have a fun and safe holiday.
