So I have had a very busy week and weekend. Happy Fathers Day to all the dads, granddads and step dads. My hubby is a step dad to my kids and he is a great dad. We have a great blended family and lots of grandchildren to love.
If you read my other stories you know I have been helping my son get his store remodeled so we can get it opened, hopefully, by fall. Yesterday was the Appalachian Trail Festival in the town where his store is, Duncannon Pa. We decided we would put up a stand to sell some of the things we will be carrying in the store. My son went out and bought all the stuff to screen print our own shirts. He spent all last week making shirts for us to sell as well. They were a great seller yesterday and a good way to get the stores name out there. It was hot but well worth our efforts. I met so many nice people from the trail and also from different trail associations and just people from the community.
Today, hubby and I went to the flea market but I guess because it is so hot most of the stands were closing up for the day. I am trying to find old camping and hiking gear to use for decorations for the store. We are putting in a hikers lounge for the hikers to relax, have a cup of coffee, use the wifi and just relax for awhile. The thrift store next door gave us a large wooden coffee table to us. Well we couldn’t just use it as is so we are painting a chess/checker board on the top for everyone to us. It will be a great addition to the lounge.
I am drying some cinnamon apple chips in the dehydrator for snacks for the kids that I watch. This is the first time I have tried apples so I hope they turn out as good as they look in the book.
Just finished another round of breakfast burritos that hopefully will last 2 weeks. They are so easy in the morning to just pop in the microwave and they are ready to go. The hubby likes to put salsa on them but the kids just eat them plain. Thought since it is fathers day I would make a hubby all his favorites. Needless to say the kitchen is hot today. Strawberry shortcake is done and the biscuits are cooling. Salisbury steak and roasted potatoes are in the oven and cucumbers and onions are in the fridge. Hopefully I can turn the oven off soon or I may melt away. Just can’t keep the house cool with the oven on.
The garden is growing and I noticed that I have a potato plant coming up. Only thing is we didn’t plant potatoes this year? I’m sure it is one we somehow missed from last year but I still can’t believe it lasted all winter and regrew. Well we will enjoy them no matter how it got there. I’ll have to water tonight because we didn’t get the rain they promised us this week.
Have a great week and I hope you have a wonderful day.
