    Merry Christmas! Was there a gift this year that you couldn't wait to give? The one you really wanted to see the recipient unwrap? For me, it was a set of 8 framed photos that I gave Hubby. Before our home in MO sold, we went out one spring day and took loads of pics of the flowering...

    DH made solar screens for the windows at the back of our house. The sun COOKS the back of our house in the afternoons. We've been sitting on the materials for almost a year now. Lowe's had the screen material 1/2 price last year but we never finished. Anyway, what a HUGE difference. Our...

    I am so excited. All of our family lives out of state, so we don't get to see them very often. And with the high cost of gas, trips to see them become expensive. But this is a special weekend for the family: lots of birthdays, anniversaries, etc. So we are leaving tomorrow, just for 2 days...

    Good things come to those that wait (and keep searching). Here is our good thing story: My daughter wanted a twirling skirt, a skirt that spins out when she... well spins around. Being seven she thinks that is oh so cool. We found one on line, major expensive so we wait for it to go on sale...

    And it's been a long wait -- she was due 2 weeks ago. She calved just after 6am. The little bull calf has been named Chuck, as in ground chuck and chuck roast. ;) It's a very good name for a steer (which this guy will become when he gets around 400lbs or starts to show any aggression). As a...
