July 16, 2009

Hi Everyone,
Hope your all having a good day. Well, I am trying to get ready for fall. It's hard to think about fall, when it is still summer. I have found out that you have to be ahead of the seasons to be ready. I am planning a big summer clearance sale on August 1st. We are having our next car show in town that same day. I thought that would be a good time to have the sale. I will also have a lot of my fall items out for that day. I am very excited about the fall, it is my favorite time of the year. I love all the warm colors, and I just love the mums, pumpkins, corn stalks and hay.
Well we will talk about all of that later. Talk soon, Tammy

Let's Talk,
It's been a great week so far. I had a very busy day yesterday at the shop. There where lots of people out. It was the best Wednesday I have had in awhile. Last time I talked, I was heading home to can green beans. I canned 14 quarts. I still have more to do. Last year I canned 75 quarts.
I don't think I'll need so many this year. My husbands grandmother and mom have always been the ones to do all the canning. Last year was the first year I did it on my own. I was so proud of my accomplishment. I also did my own tomatoes and squash. After I was done canning I went to water my flowers, I thought I would take a few pictures and share them with you all. I love to garden. I got that from my grandmother. She always had the prettiest flowers I had ever seen. Her geraniums where huge, her secret was miracle grow every other day. I miss her a lot, she passed away three years ago. When I see my flowers looking so pretty, I think of her. I am so glad she taught me how to garden. Hope you enjoy my pictures.

Hi Everyone,
I am so excited, I have followers for my blog spot. It is nice to meet all of you. I hope everyone had a great 4th of July. It was a beautiful weekend for picnics and cookouts and best of all fireworks. Of course my 4th was spent in the shop working. We had a huge car show in town. We had a great time meeting lots of new people and seeing all the great old cars. Most of my family spent the evening in the shop helping me out. We all love spending time together as a family even when we work. I had a lot of people coming in and out all day. It was a great day!
I closed at 9:00. We all went out to eat and watched fireworks. The rest of the weekend was spent relaxing and catching up on some needed rest. This week I will be canning green beans. I started yesterday, stringing and breaking. When I get off this afternoon It will be time to start canning. I hope you all have a very blessed day
Talk Later, Tammy
