Been without internet service since Saturday and gotta say I was missing my daily dose of blogs and Youtube. I will share my happenings in this long post. I am kidlwss for the day tomorrow ,Mine will be in school and the others home with their parents.I have high hopes of playing in the craft corner 🙂 A quick side note ..Our weather is weird but I am loving it we only had highs in the upper 60’s yesterday and today as opposed to last weeks heat index of 105-110 What?!?? Anyway here are the other posts I got ready. Love to you all 🙂
WE went to the sweet corn festival and didn’t even get any corn J It was 96 degrees when went and way too hot for me to stand in that long line. I did however get a few photos of the process of how they do the corn. We are having some rain tonight as a cold front pushes through and the temps have dropped into the mid 70’s Woo Hoo !!! We may go up North to visit with Melissa’s folks for a family get together. They have a pool so the kids can swim and the guys can have guy time and I can have girl time. I really enjoyed getting my cards filmed and looking at other videos I can see that others have had to work sideways and some even upside down. My lighting could be tweaked but that will have to wait til I find the right kind of light to fit into my space. Our internet is down tonight so I am typing this to post as soon as I get connected. I am toughly beat from all the walking and the high heat. We were there for about 6 hours or so, Even with the high temps we still had a nice time and Brian was able to pick a few things for eBay.
While we were there the kids got to witness some divorced parents fighting over their children and got to see how that effected the other kids, Made for a nice teaching moment for ours to be grateful that they have parents who love each other and them and parents who handle conflict in a different manner. Made me sad for the kids and even the adults I’m sure they are not happy either. We also got to see a man Brian does buying from and was able to introduce them to Ken. His wife is very Ill with cancer and after them asking about Sharon his wife they were all concerned for her so he asked them to pray for her and they promised they would and in fact have several times. It’s nice to watch them interact with other adults and have such compassion for others makes me feel like we are doing something right. Sure wonder sometimes the way they act up here at home J lol I will close now to try the connection then I need a shower and off to bed for me.
Until next time
Hugs and love,
As I type we are on our way for another adventure which we are keeping secret from the kids. I think they will have a fun time. The weather is light showers and only around 68 degrees what a change form yesterday. As we drive on the changing color of the corn and soybean fields are Signs that fall in on it’s way. This summer has passed so quickly for us, seems to just have started and Winter will be upon us before we know it.
Our internet is still down we are thinking it may be the server. Poor Brian had to go to McDonalds to check on his ending auctions from last night and said he felt quite strange sitting there with my laptop covered with butterflies J lol I told him I could take them off and he said no keep them. He is such a sweet man I love him so. Next month it will be 30 years ago that I met him, my wild and crazy guy. We met 23 days after I turned 15 and have been inseparable since. Most of my life (years) have been spent with him just amazes me when I sit and think about it. Enough of my mind wanderings We skipped church this morning feels nice to jus get in the van and drive no big rush to get where we are going. The kids brought along books a few small dolls cd and mp3 players all with good headphones. Will has his ds game system and me I get my trusty laptop to jot down my musings to share with you. I am toying in my mind with what else I could share paper craft wise with you all. I have so many ideas in my head I think I will make a What I want to share list. Leslie you may have created a monster I had forgotten how much I liked this part of being a demonstrator.
We are now on our way home from our visit with Don and Khralia Melissa’s family the kids had a lot of fun and all except Ariel are quiet and still. We passed many wind farms earlier today and I took a few photos but it looks really neat at night with all the blinking red lights. I am missing my online connections, I haven’t my daily dose of my blogs or you tube. I will jot more later if I get a chance.
Hello everyone J It is Tuesday Morning and we are still without internet service and My poor Brian has gonr through everything the automated repair has instructed him and nothing has worked. He spoke with a neighbor in passing and her connection is down also. I used my time wisely and got all the laundry done up and my house cleaned. Today I have the small ones and wont have to try to do it with them underfoot. I have been looking through the files on my computer and have found a large list of techniques and some you just don’t hear about anymore and may be fun to post. Something like oldies but goodies kind of stuff J I have to take Heather to the Doctor this morning and run a few errands maybe the service will be up when I get done. Hope you are all well and for those of us in the United States you’ve had a good holiday .
Take care all ,
Much love and Hugs,
