Where has this month gone?
It is just flying by!
I saw this meme on facebook this morning and it made me giggle so I thought I would pass it on.
While I am far from being bored it does remind me to take time for my own personal scrapbooking. This morning I woke up early to work on meal plans for the week and decided that since I was already awake I would get some scrapbooking done. I am working on a couple of layouts but they will not be on the blog until later this year. I am trying to match artwork with the paper packs that we will be using in the Workshops each month.
Some of you know that I went on a road trip with my mother in law last week. The original plan was to go up to Branson, Mo because there is an Amish Store (Amish Country Store) that we love shopping at. They have a french onion soup mix that Kaela adores.
Since we each has about a week to play we decided to turn our shopping trip into a "Amish Country Store Tour". We found a list of stores in the area and some by word of mouth from the other shop keepers and off we went.
The Garmin in the Suburban thought we went nuts but that was ok. My pantry is now full of all kinds of soup starters and baking mixes just in time for the holiday season. I loved stopping into all of the different family run stores and seeing what they had to offer, I also bought something in almost all of the stores we stopped in.
When Mike and I made a quick overnight trip to Tulsa week before last we also found a small Amish Store just on the other side of the TX / OK border, I think it is across Hwy 75 from the casino. This one is only about 1 12/ hours from my house so I think it will be a good little store to stock up on the jar items. They do not have the baking and soup starters but they do have fabulous cheeses and FUDGE!!!! Do not even get me started on all of the yummy stuff in jars...
I will have to make another trip to the OK store just before Christmas because I had a couple of ideas for gifts while I was there.
As you can guess Barbara's suburban was filled to the brim when we crossed the state line again with not only the grocery items that we intended on buying but also quilts and furniture. We made time for a little antiquing too. I found a little cookware and Barbara found artwork.
As soon as I work with the few photos we took (they are still on the laptop) I will post a couple.
Do not forget that this Saturday is CROP NIGHT!
I can not wait to see you there!
