Corn is tassled


We will have sweet corn to eat in 2 1/2 to 3 weeks. Yay! The weather has really cooled off from what it was a few weeks ago.

Last weekend was quite a whirlwind with the wedding in Abilene and all. Amanda went to the Panhandle Professional Writer's conference in Amarillo on Friday. The kids and I spent that afternoon going to the zoo and playing at parks. We also got to see the Crum grandparents and had ice cream. They got so spoiled that day. Saturday morning Amanda went back to the conference for the morning programs while we went and ran around town again. (Mostly getting a flat fixed on the car and strolling around Lowes looking at stuff) Amanda had entered a novel she has been working on in the conference contest and got 2nd place in her category! You send them the first 10 pages and a synopsis months beforehand and have to wait to hear how you do. Since there were more than 10 entries in her category she will get a cash prize to boot.
