Hello! Remember Me?

Hello there family, friends and fellow bloggers. I just thought I would drop in and say hello. It sure has been hot and busy around here. I miss blogging but unfortunately I let is slide on the priority list again.

I have been very busy at our local farmer's market this summer. We have market on Wednesdays and Fridays. You can imagine that keeps me busy baking and canning. I haven't tried to expand the business any further really. Although I have picked up a few regular customers in the community, so I guess I am getting the word out!

The kids have enjoyed the summer. School starts in a bit over two weeks and they are ready to go back. We swam, visited family and hung out with our wonderful friends. Lots of great conversations and bottles of wine! (for the adults of course!)

Tablescaping has be neglected also. I have so little space for all of my dishes, they live in storage tubs on shelves in the garage.It has just been too hot to dig around down there. I have been lurking though. some of my favorites the summer have been Alycia from Tablescapes at Table 21 and Yvonne at Stone Gable.

I have been shopping sales and being frugal as possible. You know the expense of getting kids back to school. I have been enjoying my savings with my Target RedCard and have updated my savings to date. We havent paid off any debt since my last posts. But we haven't racked up anymore so that's good. I bit the bullet and joined Dave Ramsey online. it costs extra but it keeps me accountable and runs my debt snowball for me. There will be two pay offs in August due to this so, money well spent!!!!

I'm glad I stopped in to say hi, I have missed keeping up with everyone. Hope your are enjoying your summer and keeping cool!!!!
                                                               Much Love,

Hey, sweet Debby! Awwww....BlogLand has missed you, too! I always enjoy visiting with you, and I completely understand how things have to hop into their place in the priority line . While we miss seeing your fun tablescapes and catching up with your snowflake debt progress, I think we all feel ya! With school for the kids just a stone's throw away, you'll be SO glad you remained faithful to your goals! I'm guessing my husband is familiar with the program with Dave Ramsey that you referred to. He listens to him on the radio all the time! We'll cut you some slack until the kids are back to school and the weather cools down....then we're going to form a dish mob to get you back to tablescaping again!!! :-) So glad you checked in! Hang in there, sister, and thanks for continuing to stop by to visit. You know I ALWAYS enjoy it! Take care!
