I haven't posted in awhile so I thought I'd give an update as to what's been going on. :)
Kauleen and I just got back from a weekend of visiting the parents for Father's Day (and to make sure dad was feeling well/rested after back surgery). He's getting around fairly well, but still in quite a bit of pain. How does one ever keep a man down? :)
We went to Wilbur's Community Garage Sale on Saturday. (this is a very small town). We got a soaker hose for our first-ever garden! (Kohlrabi, rhubarb, onions, carrots, corn, raspberries and strawberries - and an apple tree!) Everything is growing amazingly well. (If you ever read Frog and Toad books - and the one about their garden and checking it every day..........that's me!!) We also got a king size down comfort for $5! The best purchase (in my mind) was a special tool that I will use! It is called "cord connect" and you connect extension cords through it and it is waterproof. THIS will help in keeping my Christmas Show running through the whole season without my water issues last year *crossing fingers!* My FM Transmittor should be here this week.
Regarding my Christmas show........ :) I have 6 months, 15 letters (Merry Christmas) and my FM Radio Station sign to make. I'll be busy!! I plan to start the show on December 1st. Maybe I'll have an open house one night of it. I hope to do some kind of a drive...............food drive, diaper drive?........any ideas????
Our "cabin" is coming along so well!! We are so excited to see it transforming into a "homey" place - each and everytime we go. I'll post a few before and after pics for you all to see. We started painting this weekend at Coulee. We had been told it would take lots of coats for red, but really wanted the barn red/white trim. So, we decided we'd tackle however many coats we needed. Well........we will only need 2! It ended up going on really well on our brownish/tan-ish pre-primed siding. We'll paint again in July.......and get it finished. We also have some time reserved at our favorite place we stayed last year http://www.freestoneinn.com/ right outsize of Mazma/Winthrop. We plan ton enjoy hiking, swimming, relaxing by the river, reading........and each others undivided company. It is a much needed respite.
Plans in the making/discussion stages........Mexico/Cancun next year for K's 40th :) and as always.......babies maybe starting full fledged in January....or so that's been the discussion - but money has to come in to play some where there :)
I think that's about it for now.
