I am so sad. I wrote a whole blog post and it somehow disappeared into the ether. UGH. That rarely happens to me so I shouldn’t complain but I’ve been busy and time at the computer has come at a premium so losing a post isn’t any fun…so I’m giving up my cross stitch time and rewriting it.
Have you been following me on Instagram? Last week I told you that was trying harder at regularly posting stories and I’ve been having a great time doing it. You can follow me at Jo_joscountryjunction.
Here are a couple of things that I shared there…I voted!!
I also cracked half of my tooth off last week. I met my daughter Kelli and kids in the late afternoon in a neighboring town. She had to take her boys to urgent care to get a check-up. They were both not feeling well. I took her daughter Georgia and did my errands while she took the boys to urgent care.
On the way home, it was getting late so I stopped at Culver’s and grabbed some supper with plans to eat it as I drove home. Well, I was almost home and realized the check side of one of my molars was GONE. My tooth had cracked off. UGH.
I already had an appointment scheduled for Monday but ended up calling in to see if they had an earlier appointment. They worked me in and told me I need a crown. UGH. So I went to get that today. There went $1100 down the drain. I drowned my sorry on a $1 frozen yogurt cone on the way home both times.
I hate…the dentist but at least I got fro-yo.
Did you see I got a new foster dog Rusty. So far everything has been going well. I’ll write an update on him in another post. I did write a post about him so if you missed that, you can find it HERE…and yes there is something wrong with his eyes. We’re hoping the vet can fix that on Friday.
I had grandkids around over the weekend. We had a church fundraiser and I was asked to make desserts. I ended up offering to make pies so I could use up the fruit I had in the freezer. We ended up making 2 apple, 2 raspberry rhubarb, and 2 pecan cheesecake pies.
I had “help” from Gannon, Carver, and Jasper.
Here is the raspberry rhubarb pie. It’s a family favorite to mix any berry with rhubarb.
After pie making, we got a call from my daughter Kalissa’s husband Craig. He called to tell us all that he was done combining corn and that leg of harvest is done. YAHOO!! It is supposed to snow tomorrow so that was good timing.
Jasper, my daughter Kayla’s little guy, had his first sleepover all by himself at my house. He did so well. Only once in the night, he said, “Mommy-Daddy”. I said we had to go back to sleep and they would come after we woke up, ate, and played for a little bit. He went right back to sleep.
Mommy did come back and then he got to play with Kalissa’s little guy, Anders.
He even got to hold him.
It was fun to have Jasper without mom and dad. Kids are so different when their parents aren’t here with them. I hope we can catch a few more sleepovers in the future. He did so well…and that made me really happy.
It was a fun week…I had a wonderful balance of company and me time.
