Oh my, its been a long time since I've posted. Some of you inquired how I'm doing, and I thank you for your concern. I'm fine.
We did arrive home mid April, just before Easter. We blew in with a snow fall of ten inches. Perhaps that's what put me in a funk, perhaps I hit the wall and couldn't think of anything to write about. Or maybe I just needed a break from blogging for a bit.
So much has happened in the last two months, let me catch you up. When I got home, I house cleaned and reorganized my cupboards and closets. Boring, but needed to be done.
We endured a couple more snow falls, and eventually it all melted.
We purchased a new vehicle, I now drive a Buick Enclave. We traded the truck, for something that would get a little better gas mileage. I think it will serve our needs perfectly, plenty of room to get our stuff to Arizona, and a comfortable ride. We also kept the 'chevy' for just running around.
The grands are growing and are anticipating their week's stay for 'Granny Daze'. I have decided that having all five at one time is too much. So they are taking turns.
Grand #2 (our only grandson) can come for a week and bring a friend.
Grand#1 will drive over after the fair, where she shows her horse.
Can you believe it -- she drives. She is also bringing a friend.
Grand #4 will spend her week with her cousin Grand #3, as will Grand #5.
So if you do the math, Grand# 3 gets two weeks.
We haven't been fishing much, it is a slow start to getting in some good fishing. Our pontoon is in the water though, so that's a step in the right direction!!
The yard work is at a standstill, we were going to do some reseeding of lawn and establish a few flowerbeds around the house, and take down a few scrub trees. Our septic is acting up (more about that in a later post) so we have to get those issues taken care of first.
Our ATV club has started up for the season, and I'm involved with that!! The treasurer has resigned; so I'm doing that job in addition to the secretary job.
We've gone on a few rides already. Saturday's ride was a bit muddy.
I decided not to be a girly girl, and get muddy!!!
I've been doing some sewing for the granddaughters. I inherited some material that was designed to sell as pillow cases by the yard. I am in the process of turning the material into summer dresses, with just one more to go.
One of my goals was to paint our four-season's room furniture a cranberry red, to match the fireplace. That was completed!! The color in the photo is deceiving.
The next goal is to paint the trim on the garage, not as much fun!!!
So, it has been a busy spring. And it looks like summer will be the same. Thank you for your patience.
And that's the way it is..............................
