Friday, Can't make myself do that....

I love this picture taken at their engagement, I just hope they are always this happy.



Hub's was having a really hard time walking on the slopes and he had forgotten to taken his afternoon pills.  He had been on his feet all day which is hard for him and then in dress shoes which are always iffy. I thought Braunwyn was going to have to carry him down the aisle. As they came down I could tell he was really struggling.  I don't think anyone else noticed.

     I really, need to sew today.  I have been so wrapped up in getting things put away and I am tired.  I have just not pushed myself in the shop at all and it is going to bite me hard if I don't get busy.  The fact that I did little or no sewing for clients last week has transferred to this week.  I have no excuses other than I am trying to clean up the wedding.

     We have a ward camp out tonight so we will be leaving here about 3:30 to get to the venue. Hub's has to load the chairs, cots, tent and things and I am in charge of me and the cooler with a salad and our drinks.  We will leave after breakfast tomorrow and drive to Pullman to the lentil festival where B is working.  We will also pick up many bags of free lentils, chickpeas, green peas and things that are given away.  So our Saturday is planned.

     I have to give the lesson on Sunday, so I need to prepare that and Hub's and I would like to sneak out and go huckleberry picking sometime soon.

     The freezers are both full, full and I need to get all the fruit and berries out sometime in the next month and make jams, we are almost out and the freezer needs to be freed up.  I have raspberries,huckleberries, and blueberries to make into jam.  So I see a major pantry and freezer redo in my future.  This will tell me what to use up and what to NOT buy.

     I am going into my shop right now and not coming out until 3:00.  The pile is going down or maybe even getting eradicated.  Wouldn't that be great!

     Have you any plans for the weekend?

Have a great and productive day staying positive while you are in the negative.

Kim

  1. Such a beautiful picture. I'm sorry your hubs was having a hard time. Hopefully you'll get all those jams and jellies made. I'm going over to my BILs house tomorrow to help him can peppers. Hope you have a great, productive weekend, Kim.

    1. We had a good time. It was good to set the tent and cots up and remember how to do it. You forget. We slept well and the food was great. We could have taken some home but did not need anything and no room in the freezers.

  3. I've never heard of a lentil festival! Sounds interesting.

    Our weekend will be: soccer practice, a soccer tournament, two scrimmages, an obstacle course/mud run. And, maybe sitting by the pool. Oh, and a sleepover. School starts next week. And, can you tell that soccer has started again? ;-)

    1. I remember those days of run run run with the kids all art and dance lessons. We did not do sports but we were just as busy.

    1. I did not make the dress, just altered it. But I did do the bouquet and all the flowers.

  5. I understand your Hubs' predicament, as someone who has trouble walking on uneven ground, and standing for long periods. The bride is beautiful, as is her dress and bouquet. Your Hubs is nothing to sneeze at, either!

  7. Your daughter is beautiful! I'm glad your hubs was able to get through it! I'm sure it was a beautiful wedding. :o)

    you always amaze me how productive you are. But, you deserve a break after all the work you have been doing getting ready for the wedding. One of the happiest days of my life was the day after my daughter got married. It was like a weight had been lifted off my shoulders. Same thing when my son got married too.
