Fishing You A Happy Birthday!

I know it has been WAY TOO LONG since I last posted something I created! Let me give you a little rundown on what I have been doing the last few weeks. I attended a Cincinnati Reds baseball game (they won!) against the Cardinals and then we watched fireworks afterwards....so fun! My hubby's sister had her pinning ceremony for graduating from her LPN program. Then we took her two boys (ages 3 and 4) and they stayed with us for a few days. My mom took us all to the Newport Aquarium and everyone had a grand time...we were all completely wiped out afterwards! LOL! Then my hubby's grandma had a party that weekend for a cousin that just graduated college, found a job down in Mississippi and moved away this week. Went swimming a few times with my mom...it is so hot out so the water feels great! Have been plucking tons of stuff from my garden and preserving it along with getting some fresh peaches and corn from other places. Managed to get 172 peaches for 10 bucks and 14 ears of corn for 3 bucks!!! Great bargains!! Tomorrow I will be attending a family reunion for my hubby's side of the family. Yep, all of this and more just in two weeks! Don't forget the normal house stuff (cooking, cleaning, laundry, etc.)...plus working on our house which takes a crazy amount of time!! Hopefully that explains why I haven't been on here much! WHEW! Are you exhausted just reading about my crazy schedule?

Now for the reason you are here.....my card!
