I'm not sure what happened at the end of last week, but I guess I must have been busy doing something. :) It doesn't look like anything happened in here, but I did some organizing of kids' clothes. A lot of the other organization was in Aaron's and Jason's room. Most of the stuff from their room is in mine right now. I don't know how they acquire so much junk, but they can't part with any of it.
Here are the newest pictures of the garden. Some of the peas grew to about seven feet, fell, and are now climbing the trellis I made again. The corn is not tall at all; only one stalk is over my head, but we can already see where the ears are growing. There are a few peppers out there, and I've still been eating beans and peas. I guess the staggered planting helped with that. They've been good. I pulled the lettuce plants because they were wilting and dried up but left one out there to have with our sandwiches later this week. I had started some peas about a month after the corn to grow around the stalks but don't think they'll get a chance to grow. We've had some cool weather; a couple mornings ago it was 34 here. Today is was 40 and is supposed to get up to 80--strange when you need both the furnace and the air conditioner the same day. :) (Just for the note, I shut the furnace off when it tried to start, and we never did put the air conditioners in this year.)
Over the weekend I finished writing letters to grandparents I had started a couple weeks ago :( and got them out. I'm assuming most of them will arrive tomorrow. At least they made it out late instead of never.
Yesterday we mowed the lawn at the church building. Mike, Aaron, and I each had a mower and were playing tag-team at the very end. Other than that, we just each took our own path around the lawn. There are quite a few branches that need to come down and/or be picked up, but we have no way of cutting or hauling them. I keep asking if we should call someone but never get a straight answer.
Other than that, I don't think much is new. Have a good day!
