While it’s Spring in Kansas, it’s honestly felt more like Summer. Yesterday we hit a record 97 and today promises to be just as hot. Okay, that’s a little to hot for April but we’ll take what we can get…..As long as there are no strong thunderstorms in the mix.
So much as been going on here in the country. Our much awaited grandson made his arrival a week early. Meet our precious Kolton Dean…………………..
Isn’t this picture of mother and son precious? For someone who never wanted a family, Kara has taken to motherhood like a duck to water. Both her & Paul love that little guy (Okay, honestly, how could anyone not love him???) and this ole grandma is thrilled with daily pictures of him. They’ll be home next weekend and I can’t wait to get my hands on him.
Since we are going to have a houseful next weekend, I decided it was time to clean out the playhouse for the little ones. Since our ‘babies’ are now 13 & 14 you know it’s been a few years since it had a good cleaning. What a mess!!! Once we got it cleaned out we decided it was time to move on to the greenhouse. Out everything came and once again we started pitching junk. Since we had rain predicted we just through everything back in there but at least now when I feel up to it, I can go out and get it all back in order without having to do a lot of lifting.
Doing all this cleaning/lifting work has really taken it’s toll on Keith & I’s backs. I spent all Tuesday in bed and Keith laid most of yesterday afternoon. We’ve both agreed we can not do hard, physical work like this and yet there is so much to do around this ole farm. Next on the list is my shop but it’s going to be done with a little here, a little there. No more pushing ourselves to get something done in a day or two. From now on we are going to stretch these cleaning projects out over several weeks.
I don’t want you to think that work is all we have been up to. There has been many rugs, mats, samplers, pinkeeps, and furniture made on this ole farm. All with a purpose in mind. In the next few days I’ll be talking about that.
Our little ones have just a little over three weeks left of school. I don’t know who’s more excited, me or them! I look forward to having them home all day and they look forward to sleeping in. Within the next two weeks Keith will be getting the swimming pool ready and then we’ll know Summer has arrived.
Well, rain is predicted tomorrow and there’s a pile of laundry sky high so it’s time to get it washed and hung out. I hope everyone is enjoying warmer days and stay safe from all the tornadoes that have been hitting our country. Until later…….
