Well, my goals of updating daily and having some fun things posted has failed miserably this summer, as has my morning exercise routine. Hopefully once the routine of school has set in, things will be 'good' again. haha

So an update on the parents, they are doing well. Mom didn't have surgery, but at this point, we're taking it as a blessing. Dad still needs some work on his back, and we're taking that as it comes.

My garden has produced wonderful cucumbers and it looks like the crop will be great for Watermelons, pumpkins, squash and tomatoes! Sadly, my strawberries aren't producing and I'm going to dig them up and put them in my basement for the winter and see if anything comes of them. I'm also not so sure about my celery and my onions. I hope they do well. OH! I forgot about my peppers! My green Jalepenos are doing wonderful and the belle peppers (red and yellow) are coming slow but sure. I'm hoping that I have lots of peppers to spice up my fall and winter! Apple tree is doing well, too. I will have some great apples for pies and i'm hoping to try my go-round at pie making and applesauce making. I have a sauce recipe that I hope will be great.

I have the blessing as of late to be a gracious host to some friends that need a place to crash. Its a great thing to be 'in need' and to do wonderful things for people. My friends that have needed a place to crash have been very thankful for the bed and I've been very grateful to God for being able to host people. Praise the Lord!

Ranching has been keeping me busy as well. I have been out haying and hopefully we will have enough hay stored up for winter for the cows.

My aunt's inlaws are having a family reunion at Fort Sisseton State Park, about 8 miles from my house. My dad is going to go out there this evening and tell Ghost stories about the Fort. (there are many!) and I'm going to play 'backup' and have some sound affects hidden around the corners! hehe... I'm so evil!

Well, off to wash dishes and enjoy this wonderful Saturday! Praise God for such great days such as this. These are the days I long for all winter.

School starts in a week, so its time to hunker down and get ready. I'm working on writing lesson plans and planning exactly what is going to go on for the first week. Once the first week is over, its smooth sailing!

Speaking of school, I got an "A" and a "B" respectively in my graduate classes this summer. Praise the Lord! I was really worried about my graduate research class.

If you get a moment, check out my friend Jen's blog, She's way better at updating and has some awesome pictures.

Well, off to enjoy a perfect day made in the Lord!
