Man...oh man...oh man!!!  What have I done!!!???  I'm drowning in squash and zucchini!  What with all the trouble we've had, in the past, trying to get a garden to grown, I never thought I would have such success this year!  Well, I don't know if you would call it a success since I have yet to get a single tomato or pepper but I have squash, zucchini, and beets, coming out of my ears!

That's a wonderful thing, you know!  I am freezing some, cooking a bit, here and there, and I am trying my hand at fermenting.  I'll let you know about the fermenting...I'm still not sure if I like it. I'm thinking about getting a dehydrator but I'm not sure what you do after you get the veggies dried.  Have you used dehydrated veggies?  Do you have a favorite recipe or tip for using them?

I have also been making the woven wall hangings, again.  It is relaxing to do this and I can whip a small one out in a day.  Still thinking about making some to sell.  

This one I made in just a few hours.  Super easy.  The picture shows it to be blue but it is actually turquoise and brown.  I haven't decided what to use for the hanger but I'm leaning towards a painted dowel rod or maybe one with some wood burning on it.  

This one was a special request from my sweet granddaughter.  She tends to be a hippie/gypsy, too, and she loves all of the things I come up with.  I can't wait until she learns to do some of these crafts.  I am looking forward to what her imagination comes up with!  Mentioning my granddaughter...

She loves this crazy, trouble-making, dog!  She found one of her little stuffies and gave it to him.  They sat there for quite awhile talking and playing.  

This little man makes my heart happy.  He looks so much like my Daddy!  I know Daddy would have loved this boy and there is no doubt, both the grands would have loved their Great Big Pappaw!  

Well that is about all I got.  I'll just leave you with a couple of pictures.  

Mine and the granddaughter's kayak.  We had a wonderful time paddling around this past weekend.

I wish you could have seen this sunset in person.  It was gorgeous!  God loves to show up and show out, doesn't He!

Grace & Peace,


  1. Good grief! Look at the squash and zucchini! What is it about this summer? We haven't been able to grow squash in years until this summer. Usually squash bugs ruin them. The beets are pretty! I've never grown beets. Your grandchildren are cute as can be.

  2. Thanks, Henny! Those blue-eyed sweeties are the thing that makes our heart beat! We usually lose our squash to bugs, too, but this year, I planted in a different location and I think that has helped. Thanks for stopping by.

    Grace & Peace,
