Fall is here

 Fall is here, trees are turning colors, but not in full color yet. I think it's going to be a mid October color! My fall allergies are in full bloom, sneezing, sore throat from sinus and a small cough!
 My friend Cheryl got me a beautiful mum, looks like daisies. Got it planted last week, I thought about getting my lights ready for Christmas in the front planter.
 Gordon is out duck hunting, except he just shoots at them. We don't like wild duck very well, but I'll figure something out. I cleaned Gordon's closet, just his shirts. Now he can't find anything, oh boy! I got in trouble as he can't tell that winter shirts are on the left and summer on the right, to me it made sense! It will be a mess in a month anyway! I'm still purging, but not as fast as I had hoped to get done.
 Blessings to you all!

 Gordon, our son Kurt, son in law Trevor and his Dad Larry took the siding off the back side of the garage yesterday and got replacement siding up! Thank you guys!!! Gordon wanted to paint the garage and knew that the siding on the west side needed to be replaced. So yesterday was it, now to prime and paint!
 Kurt brought 2 granddaughters and one of their friends with him, so I put the girls to work in the house as it was drizzling outside. Spot cleaned my main carpet and then when it cleared up a little, window washing using Windex spray that you hook to the hose, it's so slick!! They did some stacking of wood for Grandpa and driving the 4 wheeler with the trailer. Good job girls!
 Then we went over to the Burch Barn a local place and had fun walking the corn maze, shooting the corn shooters, sliding down the hill and just hanging out. Thank you to Becky, Daniel and family for this fun spot to be for families!
 My friend got me a mum from the Country Lane Pantry in Rice Lake, it's gorgeous!! Thanks Cheryl!!

back again

 So, I couldn't truly make the move over to Wordpress. I had so much trouble downloading photos and got so frustrated, so I'm back here.
 My leg sore finally got healed and it only took 3 1/2 months. Longest time ever in not showering! Sponge baths and I bonded, but let me tell you Bob, I was so in the shower when I got the okay!!! Now I wear support stockings for the REST of my life to keep the swollen legs down to a low roar! I have learned the art of putting these suckers on!!! It's truly an art form!!! Tom, if you or Chris are reading this, you should take photos of this art form, Just kidding!!!! LOL!!!!!
 My baby boy turned 40 last month, I can't believe it, I don't feel over 40, but there in lays the problem, I am older than 40, yeah, and I am proud of my age, but really, Kurt can't be 40. We went to a really fun place for his birthday called the "Muddy Cow." So fun and we had given him a little drone the weekend before for his gift. He had a blast up here flying it! He's such a great guy!
 My little girl turned 43 on Labor Day this year, how does this happen??? We had lunch on the Saturday before her birthday and spent 3 hours or so together. Had a good time! Love that girl!!!
She loves Jesus and it shows in her life, just a great counselor!
 So, now the temps are cooling down and I dread what's coming, but I'm not going to fret about it! So, we have a little project next weekend, so I found a new to me website and found a couple of recipes to try out on all the guys. One is a "chicken fajita casserole" and another is a breakfast casserole, found them at . They sound good and easy! Gordon, Kurt , Trevor, and Larry are replacing the back side of the garage siding and hopefully it goes well and gets done in a day!
 Well, that's enough rambling on for the time being! Blessings beyond and back!


So with our 4 legged baby gone to boot camp, I decided to take a week off of work! So, today being the first day that I could sleep later th...
