Winding Down Summer

Monday, September 29th, 2014

This month was busy like every other month.  Started the month out by attending the Ross County Fair.  Isabel was even offered some free animals too, which we kindly declined.  We met up with Shana and the kids at the Fair as well so they all had a blast together.  We painted the living room which makes all the main floor and upstairs finished for painting.  Nice to have the flat paint off the walls.  Spent  a little time in Chillicothe since Isabel stayed there while we painted and then had some fun again with Shana and the kids.  I also got to spend a nice evening with some old friends for dinner.  It was nice to catch up and enjoy a lovely evening.  I did several batches of canning this month, still have more to do as the apples come next month.  We signed Isabel up for dance classes which will start next month.  Spend time getting all the things she would need for that together like shoes, outfits, and paper work turned in to the school.  Isabel was sick with a stomach virus for a few days, so I stayed home with her on a Friday and by Sunday she was feeling much better.  I took a pressure canning class to see how that all works since I only have been freezing or water bathing.  It was a good class and lots of information to help out when I start to add that to my preserving.  Next thing I want to get more knowledge on will be dehydrating and hope to get a class to get that information.  Mom, Dad, Tracy, and Isabel went to the Zoo while I was taking the pressure canning class.  Tracy got a schedule to travel the first week of September for work, so he got ready for that leave as well.

God Bless,
