The Fruits of Our Labor!

Greg, Emma & I finally got some of the weeds under control in the garden and this is what Emma found. She loved picking the onions and smelled just like one by the time there were done in the garden. I hope tomorrow that the corn and sunflowers are still standing after the horrible rain and wind we had tonight.
Sounds like all my blogging buddies have been busy enjoying summer. I for one am looking forward to fall. My hours at work are...well they are a lot. I have to put sticky notes everywhere so I know if I am a hostess or working in the Sutler store or doing the 10 pm to 6 am shift or simply doing my job. Don't get me wrong, I love my job but when the help starts to leave it is up to us, the remaining people, to keep things going. Sometimes that means we meet ourselves coming and going. It has been a good year at Fort Rob but I love the Fall and all that it brings.
I got to see Emma this weekend and Brandi brought the boys up today to visit. I tried calling the Kennedy's to see if Austin and Adrianne could come visit but they were gone, probably to the Fair. And Taylor Michael - I am sure he is busy with the fair, however I haven't seen him for forever. I miss seeing my kids and am thankful for the time that they make to come see me.
Jeff is working out of town and I feel like a big LONER most of the time. Tonight I spooked myself out when watching one of my murder and mayhem shows so I locked all the doors when I left to go to the Fort. I didn't want to walk into the house in the middle of the night with having everything open. So, I took out the keys (which we NEVER use) and made sure they fit in the door, locked things up and went to get into the truck - no keys in the truck so I went back to the house and guess what? My keys wouldn't open the door. Luckily my car keys where in the car even though I hadn't been driving it since the license expired 8-1. I made it to work but when it was time to come home I figured I would be sleeping in the car. I worked and worked trying to get in and finally broke through the back door. When I tried the keys in the lock from inside, those darn keys worked........time for a NEW door. I asked Jeremy to help me last week and remove it but he must have forgotten so on my next day off.........I will take it down myself!! So now I am so worked up I know that I won't be able to sleep and have to be up in two hours to go back to work so here I sit blogging!
I think I will paint the back stairs......

Emma has changed a ton since I saw her last! How sad that I haven't seen her in a long time...
