Wednesday

Just a quick Wednesday note. Today I am working at the family flooring store so I don't have a lot of time to post. I am still working on my "good news" that I received in the mail on Friday. I hope to have some time to write a longer post tomorrow and share it all. I've been trying to make sure that I have something planned for dinner on Tuesdays & Wednesdays that is easy. Yesterday we had homemade vegetable soup & cornbread. When I first got married, over 17 years ago, the first thing my mother-in-law taught me to make was homemade vegetable soup. That may sound like something anybody could make, but not me. I can remember standing in her kitchen as she taught me how to peel tomatoes for the soup. I didn't even realize you could peel tomatoes. I was a very "green" 17 year old! As I made that vegetable soup yesterday I thought of my wonderful in-laws. Someday I will dedicate an entire post to them. They taught me a lot about life. One of the first things my father-in-law said to me was "Sis, Can you be a country girl?"

memories....

I hope you all have a wonderful day!

How precious those memories are. I think you make a cute country girl. I can't wait to hear what your good news is. I hope you post it before Friday. We are going to the lake and I will be without internet. I will be back on Sunday though. Love ya! Val
P.S. Randy says thank you for the birthday song. He said he could hear you singing.
