Thanks for stopping by! I hope you'll find a little something extra to brighten your day, evoke a memory, or bring a smile. I love hearing from my visitors! I hope you'll check back for my replies to your comments, now that I figured out how to do that. Have a blessed day!

An Update

  • July
    • It wasn't our turn for a great wheat harvest. Happy for those in the western Kansas county where I used to live--their crop was super this year!
    • T took top gold in her project at FCCLA nationals! She spent the next week at our church camp (where K was a counselor this year.)
    • B entered two "old treasures" in the county fair, earning blue and red ribbons.
    • We helped some good friends load up and move/lost our best renters ever.
    • T went with a friend to the friend's church camp for a week.
    • K, for the first time in her twenty years, visited the emergency room and had to have stitches (seven on her chin) after bouncing too high on our teeter-totter! : o
    • Canned over 100 quarts of dill pickles.
  • August
    • We actually found a few days on the calendar available for all five of us, so took a short family vacation to Missouri.
      • Table Rock Lake-B's sister and brother-in-law were wonderful hosts, as usual, and we had lots of fun time on and in the water.
      • Worlds of Fun/Oceans of Fun-a great, though long, day. We ALL did the Ripcord this year! What was I thinking--180 feet up, with only one way down?! It was awesome!!!
    • My mom visited for a week! We took part in the Relay for Life, hung new dining room and living room curtains, got those rooms cleared of clutter just in time to host a neighborhood ladies group, and just had a good time!
    • T- started her senior year in high school!
    • K-headed back for her third year of college.
    • Had my church circle and hubbies here for (an indoor) picnic/farewell for our interim pastor.

Coming soon...

to a blog near you (this one!)--An Update--but I don't think it's going to happen today.
Just wanted to let you know I'm still here--enjoying summer and some good time with my family. Thanks for checking in, and I'll try to post by the end of this week.
