Getting ready for the fair

Sunday, July 26, 2015      23 comments

Here is DD and GD clipping the last goat for the fair. It takes concentration from DD and cooperation from the goat. Read more

A new point of focus

Saturday, July 25, 2015      23 comments

The new week leads into the final days of preparation for the county fair. The exhibits from the garden will be slim pickings indeed. The beans show promise, cabbages should work and maybe broccoli. A far cry from other years but it is o... Read more

It's the "Pit"

Friday, July 24, 2015      20 comments

After 5 installments, it is officially the pit again. I told the kids I would take picture of my handiwork. As you can see, the chickens don't appreciate the new look as they are getting it dirty already. I am relieved, a bit tired but n... Read more

Goal in sight

Thursday, July 23, 2015      17 comments

After pushing hard for an hour tonight, I can honestly say I will be glad to be done in the barn before the start of the weekend. It was hot and humid but the wind was in my favor so I cleared a much larger area that even DH thought was ... Read more

At close of day

Wednesday, July 22, 2015      17 comments

Another day to move and keep moving. The usual paperwork flowed over the desk and I thought I was in pretty good shape leading into the lunch hour. Then the neighbor called that the tree trimmer was coming TODAY and would be here in 30 m... Read more

A delayed lunch break

Tuesday, July 21, 2015      19 comments

We have one customer who tends to dawdle when making decision, promises return phone calls but just doesn't follow through. When we advised him that he had no coverage on the home and buildings he had inherited from his parents, he cam... Read more

Make Over Monday

Monday, July 20, 2015      23 comments

Well, the plan was to have a Make Over "Me" Monday. More about that later. Busy Monday so nothing new on that score. I wrote a new renters policy for a nephew who is currently renting a townhouse while his new home is being built. I wo... Read more

Sweet and peaceful Sunday

Sunday, July 19, 2015      17 comments

There was no rushing around today. Church and coffee time although DD and her family were not in church. We visited with friends, came home to do the chores here and returned to the café for lunch. We had a gift card from our anniversa... Read more

Francine made another appearance

Saturday, July 18, 2015      19 comments

Today was laundry day and I thought since Francine showed up, I would ask for her assistance. She politely declined laundry duty as "They aren't my clothes". Yes, I understand but it would still be nice of you. She prefers the LEANJEAN6 ... Read more

Friday is here and the weekend is on the way

Friday, July 17, 2015      18 comments

Plans for the weekend are not final yet but I do want to mow the yard tonight. It is 93 right now with a heat index of 101 degrees. The mower will stay put until the weather cools off. We did most of the garden work last night so maybe ... Read more

I missed a blog

Thursday, July 16, 2015      27 comments

I was so certain I wrote something last night but the gremlins must have whisked it away. Long day and covered plenty of ground with walking over 6 miles, spending 75 minutes fixing fence and chasing 2 naughty goats in, doing chores and... Read more

The judge has ruled

Tuesday, July 14, 2015      31 comments

Only one witness testified today and she pretty much said what we expected to hear. She was all in favor of GF raising the child but we are not talking about today. We were addressing the day the child was born and her capacity at that t... Read more

Day One in Court and herding chickens

Monday, July 13, 2015      25 comments

This is an odd combination but it sums up the day. It was a long day in court but worth every minute. The first person to testify was the nurse who was in charge of the GF's doctor visits and the many phone calls throughout the pregnancy... Read more

Smaller crowd but still fun

Sunday, July 12, 2015      24 comments

Only 16 of us at the reunion today but we spent more time going over family history and the legacy of those who ventured to America so long ago. DH shared the history of the families before they came from Bessarabia and Romania and the h... Read more

Very small family reunion

Saturday, July 11, 2015      18 comments

Only 30 people attended the family reunion. Some were unable to travel for health reasons, some for time constraints and taking off time from work, other vacation plans or commitments or because they have died. But those of us that were ... Read more
