First Week of 2013 SMT

Well, once again I've waited until the last minute to do my SMT for Sassy Cheryls Show Me Thursday blog. Perhaps it's because I'm thinking I might do something you really want to see. At any rate, it's worth participating since the winner of the random draw gets a free image from Sassy Cheryls Digi Store.

I'm trying to remember what I've done this past week, but I do have a few activities to share.

My DH has a hunting buddy that lives on the Mississippi Gulf Coast. Every year when he comes up to hunt he usually brings me a sack of lemons he's picked from his own tree. This year he brought up a bag on his first visit that I shared with my BFF. Between us we put up 15 cups of lemon juice in 1/2 c. amounts and froze. She'll use hers to make lemon icebox pies to take to friends. Well last Friday, my BIL came up from the coast with more lemons courtesy of the hunting buddy. So here's what I had to juice.

There were over 120 lemons and I put up 30 cups in 1/2 c. amounts to freeze. Lots of lemon icebox pies for sure.

On Saturday, my DH's oldest sister was honored with a 90th Birthday Party at our church. This is picture of her with 11 of her 12 living siblings. Quite an amazing accomplishment to me that of the 14 children 13 are still going strong. The one missing sibling is dealing with health issues with his wife, or I assure you he would have been here for the event.

So that's what I've been doing, come share some of your life with us.
