I've Finally Done It!

I've finally gotten my act together and created a blog. I figure this will be a great way to keep in touch with family and friends. So I hope this all works!

I returned from Girls Camp on Saturday. I'm still recovering. I guess it's all those late nights and early mornings that are getting to me--before, during, and after camp. With summer here, no one wants to go to bed early. They can sleep in except when they have to get up to pick squash. Girls Camp was incredible. There was a strong spirit there. Guess that's why I love to go so much. I have to talk in church Sunday now, however. The good news is that Jadon is singing, too, so I know he will steal the show! ;o) I also will be subbing in singing time for the whole summer while the Musgraves are up north. So I have a busy Sunday ahead of me.

I have graduated with Honors from my Family, Time, Money & Freedom Course through Leslie Householder. I can tell you that it has been life changing and the best thing I have ever done! I will be attending a Mentoring Class of hers the end of July which will allow me to become a mentor, coach or teach classes on what I have learned. I am pretty excited about that. What a great way to help others improve their lives!

I have also finished my cookbook. I am just going through the proof now. The completed book will be here by the middle of July. I will be setting up a webpage for it as soon as I am through typing this blog. ;o) I am really excited about the cookbook! I'll post the link as soon as I get that all figured out.

I am also going to try and figure out how to set up a webpage for the Hold On song. Gina and I had to order more. We have sold 3,000 copies. This box of 1, 000 brings us to the 4,000 mark. Pretty good for no advertising and mostly word of mouth through Gina's young women groups.

Paul has me trying to build a couple of business, too, so I am keeping really busy trying to figure out how to do business via the internet. I'm also making salsa for the fruitstand. If I'm lucky, I might be able to by myself some clothes this year-- maybe even some new tennis shoes. I need some good ones for walking and running. Need to get myself into shape-- none of this "Grandma stuff," huh?

Keeping with Webster Weekly tradition, I thought I'd leave you all with a "funny" or two.

A week or so ago, there was some conversation going on in the kitchen. (It's been too long for me to remember the details since I didn't write it down). Anyway, a question was asked and Britton said, "that's a rhetorical question!" Yes, you are right, Paul and all those gathered had to get a definition of the word rhetorical from Britton so they could understand his comment. (In case you are wondering, too, Britton's definition was, "it is a question that was basically repeated." If you want the real definition, you can check it out here...)

Today while taking Kameron to basketball camp, he was telling me some of the kids on his baseball team. There was a player that he couldn't remember and he said to me, "I know this, but his name 'escapes' me!" How do you not laugh when they sound so grown up?

Have a great week! Love to all!

PS. My friend, Erin Mylroie, has a great blog. She is a great cook and has been on food network and won a lot of cooking competitions. She posts a recipe a day on her blog. I have tried a few and they are great! Loved the rootbeer ones! Since being gone, I have to get on and try the new stuff!
