Ohh the Excitement!

Well we had quite the excitement today when a local bank was robbed and an armed and dangerous man was running around. As a matter of fact he is still at this time on the lose although they do have some idea where he is and they now know who he is, thanks to his accomplice ratting him out and all. A police officer was shot in the leg, but is expected to make a full recovery. I am thankful that we have a dedicated and well trained police force to protect us! We are still on lock down and this is just a reminder that we need to replace our doors soon so that we can lock our doors while not making it a completely inconvenient thing to do. Our keys somehow do not work on our doors so we cannot lock them without someone being in the house to let us in again.

In other less exciting news little 'un has had a nasty cold most of the week and my house cleaning has fallen on the wayside to take care of him. I am glad he likes baths because I have been giving him one everyday and locking us in the bathroom with the humidifier to clear out his awful congestion. Poor thing his chest hurts so much from coughing that he cries every time he needs to cough, totally ruins his day. Lots of cuddles and extra story time on mommy's lap for comforting. I am hoping that he will be well enough tomorrow so that we can keep our weekly play date, he looks forward to it all week and so do I! The heat has been so bad lately that we have become quite reclusive.

On another note a friend of the family is giving us some of her canning supplies so that the produce that had taken over our garden will not go to waste. She also teaches a canning class up at the Cooperative Extension and I am planning on going asap so I can learn how to properly use the stuff she is giving me. We'll be putting our root cellar to good use!
