Very Busy Weekend...with no photos.

I had a super busy weekend.

It started on Friday with a wedding.

I decorated the cake Friday morning....

The bride requested 'shamrocks'....and that the cake be a carrot cake.

And square.

I can do that.

I've never actually decorated a square cake before! all worked out.

And I got it delivered without destroying it.

When I was suppose to be getting ready to go to the wedding on Friday afternoon, I ended up making Q-tip skeletons with the girls.  They really wanted to make them.  So we did.  But Lydia was in such a bad mood it was ridiculous.  And every time I cut a Q-tip it went flying across the room.

I have no photos....but click here if you want to make one.

Anyways, I fed them supper and then got ready for the wedding.

Terry and I had a great time.  It was lovely and we hadn't been out in ages. 

But I have no photos of us.

Saturday morning came early.  Really early....Grady had to milk at 4 a.m.....Terry drove him and I picked him up at 6:30 a.m.

Then we had a cattle run down the Gallagher Road.....because it's fall....and we move cattle.

But I have no photos.

On Saturday afternoon, I took the girls to the Giant Pumpkin Drop in Eganville.  They dropped a 1300+ lb. pumpkin from 40 feet in the air.  Then they had draws for all kinds of's a fundraiser for the Eganville Food Bank.

We didn't win anything.  And I have no photos.

But here is the link to a video from last year.  It was pretty much the same thing this year.

Then we picked up Johanna at a friends' house.  She had went to the high school Halloween dance the night before....while we were at the wedding.  I wanted to see a photo of her in her costume.

But there were no photos.  Only one....and it's more of a selfie.

We headed to my nephews birthday party at the hunt camp.  Lots of fun.

No photos.

Sunday morning we went to Mass and then had our family brunch.....that we always have on Sunday morning.

In the afternoon, I took the 3 oldest kids....and two the 4-H Archery Club Achievement Day.  It was a skills competition.  I was going to be staying until they were done I joined a team...even though I've never shot a long bow in my life.

There were 4 different stations. 

Trivia....which was pretty funny.  I was all multiple choice questions about archery....which I know nothing about.  But I knew that FPS did not stand for 'farts per second'!

Judging....we had to judge 4 bows and give our reasons of the placing.

Stringing and unstringing a bow....this is harder than it sounds.  You actually have to use your whole body....and your muscles.

Shooting with a long bow at the target.  We had 6 shots.  At first I had the bow backwards....and then upside down....and then when I let go of the arrow it didn't even just fell to the ground.  But once I got all straightened around.....I hit the target TWICE!  Which was amazing!  And I heard the comment "Good luck Grady....if you want to beat your mom!"

Anyways....when it was all over.....and the points were all added up....MY TEAM WON!!

AND...I have a photo...but it doesn't include me.

Then we headed to my Mom and Dad's house for Thanksgiving supper.'s a couple of weeks late....but Dad was away moose hunting on the Thanksgiving weekend and my Mom was away visiting her sister.

The turkey was delicious.

And I have no photos.

And that was my weekend.

The end.



  1. No photos, but lots of good memories! I read somewhere in this day and age, you need to remember to take a photo with you mind!

    I'll have to find the link for you!

    1. I do a lot of that....remembering in my mind. As long as I have written down what happened, I can usually re-picture it in my mind....just like 'photos'. It seems that everyone takes photos of everything now with their phones. I don't have one of those phones....and I don't feel like I need one yet. But I miss out on 'photo moments' all the time.

  2. There are a lot of photo moments, and I get teased for taking so many with a regular digital camera! But there are so many more that I don't catch! Right now, it's a lot of Joseph singing. He seems to stop when I pull out the camera.

    I found the article today! She gets to the "Just take a picture with your mind, mom.” part around 2/3rds through the article.

    1. Great read Susy! I would be off to the cabin to churn butter with her! It drives me crazy when I go out and everyone is on their phones! I'll just keep taking pictures with my mind too!


I would love to hear from you! Let me know if you enjoyed this post and please share it with a friend.
