My Life is Insane!

It's been awhile since I've been here ... my summer was absolutely crazy! And fall is looking mighty busy!

I've had a garden this summer. I don't always live in a place where I can have one so it's been awesome! I grew green beans, corn, cantaloupe, onions, zucchini, tomatoes, lettuce, spinach, peas, kale, peppers and potatoes -- some things in multiple varieties. I've had the best corn crop ever and everything has been growing like crazy! But it's also been a bit of a battle with the weeds .. and more than once, I've felt like the weeds won. But it's been worth it! Almost every afternoon, I walk out to the garden and pick something yummy and take it back to my kitchen to make it for dinner. Throw a couple chicken legs on the grill, and it's been all good!

Several of my Saturdays have been spent selling jewelry at the local farm market -- that's been a great experience! The other vendors have been so nice and I've had some nice sales. I've been busy with business during the week too ... I've had a few sales on Etsy and done several pieces of custom work. I have some ideas for new designs and have been working on developing them.

Our building crew changes from project to project and on this build, it's changed during the project! This summer, we've had 5 groups in for a week at a time to help with the building and our crew has been a pretty social bunch.

I hope to pop back in a little more often this fall ... have some ideas for topics I'd like to chat about. See ya soon!!
