Sorry about the lack of entries lately

After a phone call from Cliff's youngest sister and a prod (in comments) from Anne, I figured I'd better do an entry.

This summer has been so busy and so full of surprises, blogging hasn't been a priority.  A while back I looked in the archives of this journal and realized I used to be much more interesting. 

I'm happy and doing well; there just isn't that much happening that I think others would care about reading.

What I'm doing right now is reaping benefits of Cliff's youngest sister and her husband vacating the farm house where they had lived for so long; I have a new back room and plenty of stuff to store... they had lots of cabinets and shelves I can use for storing.  Oh, and they gave us a nicer bedroom suite for the guest room than the one we had.  So the grandson took the old stuff, and tomorrow we'll bring in the new.

The guy who is going to do the garage floor and our sidewalks was working here today.  With luck, he may be pouring concrete tomorrow.

See, all these things are exciting to me, but they don't make for an interesting journal entry.  But I thought I'd check in and let you know that things are going great.

Meanwhile, I'm certainly enjoying all the political stuff that has the media so upset.  Each day gets a little more interesting.  Who needs fiction when real life is this crazy?

Happy birthday to my oldest granddaughter, Amber.  She was the CUTEST little baby girl I ever saw in my life, playing with Barbie and "Kim" (yeah, that was her way of saying Ken).

Such a busy full life you have!  I enjoyed your comment over at my place and appreciate the sentiment you expressed.  Yes indeed, who needs fiction lol?  This is one election lilke no other, I'm not sure how I want to see it turn out, but I do believe we've made a bit of history.  CATHY

I really enjoy your journal and blog.  what you perceive as ordinary is extraordinary to me (riding a horse, a motorcycle, butchering pigs, your cabin, your new home)  Keep it coming!  Vicki

You are busy living life. :) You are too busy to write about it, but when winter settles in you can reflect and catch up and tell us things about this summer you didnt think to tell us. I imagine with the cooler weather you will be taking more rides on Blue too though. Life is calling! Go answer it. :) I know you are enjoying your new home to the fullest. Kelly
