The school allowed students to enter a design for the new traitor wrap for the band semi. The family decided that entering one would be fun and we worked on a design together. Jada did the design work with everyone giving her ideas and feedback. We went back and forth a bit with the band director and they choose our design!! I hope Jada is proud to be selected for the design and the rest of us are happy for the parts we played. It is a great honor and awesome achievement!!
For Kim’s 38th Birthday I took the day off to spend the day with her. We worked in the garden for most of the morning and then went to a lunch of her choosing. She chose Chipolte and we went and had leisurely burrito bowl with some good conversation. From there we went in search of king sized sheet for the garden beds at Garland road Thrift. Didn’t find and garden sheets but did get me some winter bibs for the garden at half price.
After getting the Kids from school she chose a place for dinner. Bistro B in Garland! A cool Vietnamese place with lots of choices on their menu. It’s a great place and Kim loves it! Got a boboa tea on the way out and headed home.
It was a wonderful day for us and I hope that Kim had a great time.
Honey I love you and hope that you enjoyed your day. Hope we get the opportunity to spend many many more days together like this as we grow older. I am blessed to have you and could not imagine my life without you.
The first marching band halftime show of the 2016 season, with both Alexa and Jada in the show, and they looked great! So proud of the Kids for trying so hard, working together as a team, and supporting each other. These are life skills that they will use for the rest of their lives. I hope their experience is as wonderful for them as I imagine it to be.
We are having another good gardening year. It is hot now but the garden has produced well.
Starting Fall seeds in the Formal Dining room
Carolina Reapers – wow they are hot
Nice haul of bell peppers!
Jalafuego Jalapeños – Wonderful Jalapeno and hot
Peaches and Cream corn
After 17 years I am realizing each day that I am with the woman of my dreams. We see the important things in the same light and work together to shape our future for the better. I love you and hope that we are blessed with many more years together.
We went out to the Four Winds steakhouse and had a wonderful meal together. I hope you had as much fun as I did and look forward to doing it again next year.
It is 2016 and Jada is now a Senior at North Forney High School! My how time flies when you are having fun raising kids. I didn’t get to go for the pictures but thought I would post these here in case they are wanted in the future as memories fade.
Last year our corn was blown down multiple times and did not provide a single ear of corn. When at first you don’t succeed try and try again.
This year we planted Peaches and Cream corn and it is about time for harvest. Today we pulled an ear to check for ripeness and it looks great! Below are some pictures and a few words.
Here is a picture of the 4×8 bed that we planted. 4 rows of 8 plants for 32 total plants. Should net us 40 to 50 ears
When the silks have all been pollinated and turned crispy brown the ears should be ready to cut from the stalks. Let’s pull one and see where we stand shall we.
Here is our test cob. Looks good! Most kernels are fully grown and they show good germination rates. A few did not germinate but that is to be expected. Perfect corn is germinated with a spray and ours is good ol Mother Nature.
Update: we harvested about 1/3 of our corn! Looks great but as of now I have not tasted it.
