We have entered the month of June. Is it probable 2021 is pretty much halfway by?
I managed to get my gray costume go well with sewed previous 7 days, and I nonetheless have a shirt I want to sew for my partner, Joe.

I want to enable readers know I will be signing my cookbooks at 7 p.m. June 8 at a library, 101 E. Winslow St., Middlebury, Ind. I’m hoping some of my family members can attend with me.

We have not verified the working day and time nonetheless.
Previous night time, we finished planting the rest of our second yard. Joe brought in our 1st food of radishes Monday, and lettuce also is ready to use. The green onions need to be very good to pull by following 7 days. Our asparagus is slowing down, but there is a whole lot of rhubarb but.
Yesterday was sentimental for us. All 5 of us sisters had been jointly for the day at sister Verena’s dwelling. The absence of expensive sister Susan was quite real. It nevertheless does not look right to not see her there. Coming out from Indiana with sister Leah and Liz were Liz’s daughters, Suzanne, Elizabeth and her small children LaRose, Samuel and Elizabeth Ann Rosa and her little ones, Jeremiah and Kayden and Liz’s daughter-in-law, Arlene, and little ones Ella and Gloria. Coming from this neighborhood were sister Emma and son Steven Emma’s daughter, Emma, and her kids, Jessica and Menno Ray my daughters: Elizabeth and little ones Abigail, T.J. and Allison, Susan and children Jennifer and Ryan, Verena and Loretta son Kevin and me.
LaRose, 5, is the oldest of the small children there, so there had been 14 children age 5 and younger. There was not a boring minute with all the youngsters.
On the menu for lunch was tacky ranch potatoes, meatballs, Spanish rice, pasta salad, lettuce salad, deviled eggs, tomatoes, pickles, hot peppers, numerous desserts, bars and cookies. By the time everybody brought a dish or two, it included up to much more food stuff than was essential.
The working day was used browsing and sharing memories. Lifetime delivers so several adjustments, and letting God be in management is a good assist. We are so happy we never know what the foreseeable future holds. Let us choose just one working day at a time.
Ideally, when we get back again from Kentucky, we can get our hay mowed.
Our church also is planning a work night at daughter Susan’s upcoming week. It is so fantastic to have the assist of the church, mates and family. Daughter Susan would be so happy if she still could have her expensive husband, Mose, to assistance her with the outside the house do the job that can get frustrating. Once more, we want to consider lifetime just one working day at a time and rely on in a better hand. God’s blessings to all.
