David cuteness!

FINALLY, found an air card that works in our home! ( happy-dance). It is not as fast as Road Runner, but hey, it works for me! ( and mucho faster than dial-up).
Missing my grad-kids right now so I needed to post a David photo.
Daughter had to go back to work today and she was missing her baby!!

p.s. cousin Pat, I've lost your phone # and e-mail

Slowly she grows

Getting ther slowly, but surely...
Thanks Gemma didn't know there was anyone around anymore.
Please know that soon I will have more knitting content, just been really busy .
I am having computer withdrawal big-time. Right now I have to travel 7 miles to the library to get WiFi connection...I do make the trip at least twice a week.
Not that I am retired I had my toe looked at by a podiatrist It had been bothering me for many years. Oldest daughter should be getting married next year ( Hi, Mandrs!) and I would really like to wear something other than Crocs to the wedding!! Well, I need a total joint replacment, but I suppose now is the time to do it, it will be great to wear normal shoes again! Maybe later this fall I'll have it done.
Youngest daughter has just recently had a puncture to her uterus! Man, what a jerk of a Dr. she has!!! She was in tears as she had to wean her baby well before she was ready as they had to put her on 2 weeks of strong antibiotics to ward off infection and possible hysterectomy...I am livid over this!
Other than all that all is well.
I have lost most e-mail addresses of personal friends/family....please contact me so I can get them into my new laptop!
p.s. I am not enjoying Vista.

No photos today

I did finish reading Edgar Sawtelle last night. I think it was the best read in a loooong time!
Without giving the end away for anyone, I can say that I cried for the entire last chapter and for about 30 minutes afterwards ( I know I am a sentimental person).

I did find a great knitting group that meets on Tuesday nights! Had great fun, AND they were serving wine! Wow, GREAT knitting group :)))) Maybe I can take some photos next meeting!

House is coming along quickly ( please hurry, I need my own space ). The outside siding was completed today, painter is coming mon-wed next week to put final paint on outside. Sat/Sun they are begining the sheet rock, they septic is done and awaiting inspection. Pictures to follow ( I know, most people are not interested ). The house is exceeding my expectations!

one down, one to go

With all the hum-bug of selling home/business my reading this year has really been poor. No time, less energy. I still try to get in at least 45 minutes every night when I hit bed, but lately husband has been coming in and waking me up to tell me to put book away 'you're sleep-reading again!'
I did finally just finished The Shack. I was hoping it was the ultimate 'Man-meets-God" read. It kept my interest right until the end...then, disappointing ending...It was actually a 'power-of-the-human-mind'. I suppose I was still looking for answers to my never ending questions on the hereafter and ultimately I am right back to square one... I have never been one for formal religion, I do talk to God almost every day but there is always that lingering question in mind....'are you really there?' My philosophy has always been that your 'spirit/soul' or what lives on after your demise is the power of all the good you did and all the love you have left behind while here on earth. But now I am getting deep and that is dangerous and I could go on and on so I will end it here.. But all in all, I DID enjoy the book & I suppose I should not have been unexpecting of the ending.
The Story Of Edgar Sawtelle I just began last night. I bought this book a while ago on a friend's recommendation and had to search around a bit for it. Now I see it everywhere, I guess it is the next 'big-read' on the market.

Bye Bye Baby Goodbye.

... she's leaving on Sunday. I'll miss our cruising around, but it is just not right to take her onto the pot-holed dirt road that we will be living on. l will miss her ( and all that torque).

countdown move

11 more days!!!!
It seems as though all I have been doing is boxing and dumping, it is getting old quick. Today I have a moving company coming to give me an estimate, any price at all seems good to me. As you can see house and barn are not ready but as we have to be out it will have to do. Good thing it is summertime! I have to stay behind for 5 days to help the new owners and will spend those nights with daughter #2 and her family. It will be good to do some bonding with our 2 grandsons 'cuz they will no longer be 20 minutes away.
I am really excited to move on & a little sad that I cannot be up at the new place to help with the process,but as you can see husband brings me home photos every weekend.
The *fun* part of our move is the animals that will have to travel with us to their new home...I'm talkin' parrot, 30+ pigeons, 6 rabbits, and 5 dogs!! Should be interesting.
