My Crazy Life
September 3, 2020
Football season is here! I forgot how tiring it is to chase the kid around to games! We have had one varsity game and one JV game so far this season, and I already have more than 1,500 football photos. I’m having issues getting them off the “cloud” to share them. Technology is fantastic when it cooperates. I’m sure its mostly operator error. I’ve been using this computer and operating system for almost a year now and am still unsure of myself. I am happy to say that most of my photos are better than last year. I’m hoping that’s because I’m figuring out my camera and not just dumb luck. I suppose we will have to wait and see.
Friday, the game was against High Plains, and I was headed to the wrong town for the game. Luckily I keep tabs on my son’s location via his cell phone and was not late for the game. However, that did not keep me from whining and crying (I can’t say what I was actually doing) the entire way there. By the time I get this sports mom-photographer thing figured out, the kid will have kids. Oh well, at least the pictures of the grandkids will be amazing!
I’m excited to say my garden actually produced something other than weeds this year! Although I didn’t get everything put up in time, I am happy with what I did get. The garden took off while we were in N.Y. By the time I got home, it was too late to save some of it. I set the sprinkler up to water every day; it also rained almost every day we were gone. I had some rot. Some of the plants had gotten so big they didn’t produce much. The broccoli and cauliflower went to seed before I was able to harvest them. I had more cucumbers than I knew what to do with. Let’s just say we shouldn’t need any relish for a while. All in all, I am happy with what I was able to can; it is not nearly enough to get through until next year, but it is something. Maybe by the time I get the photography thing figured out, I’ll get the gardening thing figured out as well. X’s & O’s.
