Tomato Fever

This year has been a great year for my tomato's.
I usually don't get good tomato's, but this year I tried
something new with them..... don't water them as much.
(It makes them ripen faster)
About everyday I pick this many! So what to do with
all these tomato's? I bottle tomato's juice and sauce. I also
do salsa.
I love to see all my hard work in the garden is paying off!

It's been a year

A year ago from today I got bucked off my horse.
I was with my sister and her daughter Madison.
I wasn't on my horse 5 seconds and I was out of control.
I went up over her head and landed on the road. It hit
my head, broke ribs that put a hole in my lung and collapsed it.
Also hurt my hip. I was in the hospital for five days.
I loved my horse, I always wanted a buckskin. But she was
not a very good horse, I had had Soda for a little over a year when
this happened. Nobody liked her and I was the only person that
would ride her. About two weeks after my accident Soda was sold.
Tate told her good riddens.
I didn't know if I would ever get a horse again. But this spring I got
Rugar. And we have had a great summer! He is a good horse.
If you fall off, you got it get back on.
This is Soda right after I bought her

Once again it was fair time!
I love to be at the fair. I showed when
I was little, so it's fun to see my kids there
getting into it as much as I did. This is the
second year that Tate has shown in the Jr.
sheep show. This year the sheep's name was
Tinker Bell. He did great! got a blue ribbon with
some money! And of course he always has to have
his John Deere on with his lucky hat!

At the end of July my little girl turned 3.
I can't believe that three years have went by already.
She is so amazing, she has brought such a light into our
home. She is funny, outgoing, energetic and such a girl.
She loves anything pink or frilly. She is our candy monster,
we can't have candy around the house because you will find
her at 2:00 am eating candy! She loves to play with the
neighbors and her cousins. We are so blessed to have her
in our family. I love you so much, little Libby.
