Every day for the last couple of weeks the weather has been perfect! Sunny, not humid and so pretty! What a weekend! It certainly was a busy one! Saturday we had dinner and spent the evening with my son and his wife and enjoyed every minute. Sunday was another busy day helping them with their yard at their new house. Can't imagine it has only been a short time since they moved in. It is a wonderful home already! Yesterday started off great with the beautiful weather again and cleaning up their yard. I was trimming shrubs and Blake was cleaning up the mess I made. We all decided to go inside to cook a late lunch and drink some water. I was the last and putting down the electric trimmers caught me by surprise when my finger caught the trigger catching my index finger on my left hand with the blades throwing blood all over the sidewalk. Those trimmers are meant for branches not fingers! I told Fred of my plight when I got into the house and he began to clean off the blood and wash it up. I was sitting but after Blake got me some juice and water I soon woke up and noticed they were all not where I last remembered. I had put my head between my knees but apparently it didn't matter because heat, lack of water, blood or whatever it was made me realize I am not so tuff. Fred was holding me and Blake was calling the ambulance. I convinced them I didn't need and ambulance but they convinced me to go by car. A couple hours later as we walked out of the ER I found my pride was severely damaged. They monitored my heart, EKG, tetanus shot, bandaged and ran blood work thinking since I was out 3 minutes it might be something else. Gladly it wasn't. What happened? I am the one who takes care of everyone. Feeling so bad I ruined a day of work on such a beautiful day and no one had been fed yet, I looked around to see my wonderful family who took care of me, cooked my dinner afterward and were happy to help me when I needed it. Thank you Fred, Blake, Mindy and even Daisy who gave me some kisses. I am so lucky!!! This is Roberta who is on EBay. Ebay link: Roberta is Adopted
Summer is flying by and the kids are going back to school. I have to say I have hardly had a spare minute to just enjoy the summer. I have been working on a new bear and hope to have her finished in a day or so. Seems like weeks ago I started on her and try to sew when I have time. Blake and Mindy sold their house and moved in with us with Daisy until they were able to get into their new house. Last week we helped them move into their house. It was hectic and they are back to work this week after a back breaking week ending with a baby shower for Mindy. I miss having them here. It is always great to have family around and I try to spoil them when I can. Bailey and Miss Daisy are finally getting along and that was good to have them together. Fred and I have continued to work on this house. We have one more large project and a few small projects before winter. When I stand back and look at what we have accomplished in 8 months it is amazing. Our latest project was an enclosure for Bailey to keep him safe from the many foxes and other animals who frequent the lake behind our house. He seems to be getting use to it and when he catches a glimpse of Miss Kitty sunning herself he scares her silly with his loud barking. There is never a dull moment and I am never bored. If I happen to walk past the window as I did Sunday morning and see the twin baby deer 30 feet from the house it makes me stop and appreciate all the beautiful moments we have had here. God gives us many blessings and it is up to us to enjoy life! Hope you have a beautiful day!
The weather has been a bit strange this summer and today it is raining again. Yesterday I finished painting one end of the fence enclosure and I hope it had time to dry before the rain started. Fred and I worked on the last fence in the back yard this week and finished it. It will look so nice when it is painted. I hope everyone is enjoying summer and you have had time to take a vacation or at least breathe in the summer air. We were driving along last weekend to visit our son and his wife and I enjoyed every bit of the scenery. Beautiful with everything green and all the beautiful flowers are amazing! God is good to us and supplies us with everything we need. I finished Eleanora the pink mohair elephant and she is on EBay. I hope you have a wonderful day today and enjoy every minute of it!
