GARDENING. I decided this summer I was going to do my gardening with my grandpa. He has taught me just about everything he knows. We canned beans, tomatoes, pickles and even went to the orchard and picked apples (which became apple butter.) I'm pretty sure that I could survive like the Amish...well besides the no electricity or indoor plumbing thing. Everyone has their limits. Gardening is hard work, and like my grandpa tell me all the time,"You're allergic to work!" Hard, but fun!

So, today was an adventure, to say the least. My husband's uncle has a "farm" of exotic and not so exotic animals. He has an old gutted yellow school bus that we load full of his animal managerie, and go to festivals. It's really quite fun. The kids just love it. We took 6 goats, a llama, 3 birds, a bunnie, a hedgehog, hissing cockroaches, a snake, a trantula, a scorpian, a rooster, and all types of animal artifacts. The fun part is loading up the animals....leashing the goats and llama and walking them right up the front steps, it's hilarious. My mom thinks that I should add "Llama loader" to my resume. I just might!
