Back again

Well, we are back home again. We were gone for the past week, camping again. We went to the same area but saw lots of different things this time. The older monsters got their own tent for this trip and it worked out well. The littlest monster was in our tent with us. The weather was gorgeous. But unfortunately, the night before we left I ended up at urgent care. I have a sinus infection. The doc gave me a ton of antibiotics, claritin D, and flonase. It has been 5 days of meds and it still isn't gone. So I have been eating soft foods as it hurts to chew. It is doing wonders for my figure... LOL!

This week coming up I need to pull the potatoes and get them canned. Then I need to go to the old man with the farm and see if his roma's are ready to pick. If so I think I am going to get 2 bushels to start with. My tomatoes are producing but just not enough. I don't know what I am doing wrong with the garden. Or if it is just the weather that is causing chaos. Or it could be that I am jumping the gun, which might be the case. But I should be careful what I wish for. It is so hot here I really shouldn't be in the kitchen anyways.

My room is done we got that finished last weekend. I have to sew two buttons on the duvet cover. Once that is done I will take pictures. I still have some other things to do. Like paint the dresser and hang a few more shelves. But at least I have more space since I went through most of the clothes. We had gone to price a new bed frame. It would have cost us $89, but we went to Ikea and bought a new bed for $99. It sits of the floor way higher then our old bed. So now I have storage under the bed that I didn't have before.

It is steamy today, so I think that I will just be hanging out in the basement, not doing much of anything. But as usual the best laid plans of mice and men. I will probably end up doing something that will make for a sticky day.

Gotta Run,

Oh! Sinus infections are not fun at all! At least you were able to go camping as a family. Our garden has been off in it's cycle also. The heat has been so oppresive it's been awful and so stresful on the plants. Yes we do depend on our garden but it sure gives pause for though to those who's lives in years past depended on the gardens production!
