When you mix our kind of work with a little time for your friends and family time you are bound for a little adventure.
These past two weeks have been absolutely packed full and busy. So I am going to just give you the highlights of the Memorial day weekend and week. 🙂
Saturday we got up early, it’s the time of the year we have to start the process of cutting, splitting, hauling, and stacking, wood.
We headed out to the family camp to do exactly that.
With my daughter in one arm I threw wood in the bed if the truck while my husband split it.
It wasn’t to much longer when my father inlaw and our great uncle showed up. They took over for me.
So Casidy and I went on our own adventure.
When it was all said and done, we headed in.
That night we had our friends over for a little cook out. It was a good time as always up until they decided to get funny.
My sister in law and I was in the kitchen talking to the other ladies when her husband calls us.
“Sara, shanna, come look at this! ” he calls.
Well, assuming one of our husbands wad probably doing something hilariously stupid we walked towards my back screen door.
The guys had a Pine snake 🐍 caught in a tub.
I grabbed my daughter and ran back through the house with my sister inlaw behind me. Both of us screaming.
She yells, ” Get in the car! Get in my car! ” no questions asked I got into the passengers side of the car.
With our driveway being so muddy from the rain Sara slides on her ass falling.
She gets in, turns the car on.
Here those pains in our butts come with the snake, Sara puts the car in reverse and there we were ready to go.
I yell out the window “kill it! ”
One yells back “No, we can’t. ”
I yell back “I don’t give a shit kill the damn thing”
Getting the hint the guys finally got into my friends car and took the snake off down the road.
I’m still pissed they didn’t kill it, watch it come right back.
See, when you grow up down south with poisonous snakes like this copperhead that bit my friends son over the weekend-who is thank God alright🐍, you do not make friends. I hate them.
Sunday came along, we ended up fixing a belt on our car and that evening I finally got my garden in.
Monday I spent my time with my family. My parents, nephews, grandfather,and friends came for another cook out.
It was nice, we ate good food like my friends yummy chickpea salad recipe, which I will ask her if I can share with y’all.
Tuesday, I did mor gardening. and something pretty awesome happened
This women right here, ran.
It was freaking hot in the house, so I decided after my workout and a little gardening I was going to put casidy in the stroller and walk to my mother in laws for dinnner.
The walk turned into me running 1/4 of a mile.
Guys, this is huge for me! Why? I havent ran without having an “episode” from my superventricular tachiacaria in years. This is a condition that caused my heart will beat to fast. I usually A. Lose vision or B . Faint while feeling dizzy like and overwhelmingly hot.
It’s been 4 years and today I really think I can get back to 5 miles a day. I have to thank beachbody for teaching me how to eat properly/drink water consistently and all the motivation I have to exercise everyday from my team and being a coach. Not only has it helped that condition, but my RA so much.
Wednesday I went over to my mother-in -laws so she could show me how to cook with a preserve ruhbarb.
I got 3 freezerbags and a cake out of it along with an education of how to work with this northern plant.
It is perfect 👌 for summer eatin alone, but that cake, boy was it ever a comfort food fit for winter. And as you can see, it is to tasty to wait for a picture.
Get the recipe here.
Well, that is all I have for you today folks.
I hope you have a wonderful weekend, be sure yo check out other sections of our website and follow us on social media.
