Fall Butterfly garden

I was snapping pictures in the field, when I realized that
a small butterfly was sipping on the nectar of the wildflowers.
Wish I had been able to get a little closer.

Life has changed

We are no longer keeping grandkids as much, since school has started, and all the grands are now in school. Jd loves school, we really worried about him, as he didn't seem interested at all. When we would try talking to him, he would tell us, "I don't want to talk about it".
Skylar loved it for the first few weeks, then suddenly decided she didn't. She had a rough week, last week, and drove her mom to distraction, trying to get her over the 'crying'. So far, this week, she is happy, again.
Stephen, well he always loves school, and is loved by all his teachers.

I'm hoping

That I have managed to get rid of all the trash postings that showed up for awhile.
Hopefully they have moved on to other things, like jumping off bridges into dry creekbeds.

Snow, rain, hail, and 60 degrees

Our weather has been wild the last two weeks. On Tuesday morning, March 4th, we had snow, about 4 inches here, but 35 miles west, they had 12 inches on the ground. On the 5th, we had 60 degrees and sunshine, so most of our snow disappeared quickly, the rest by afternoon. Then on March 6th, snow, again, about 4 more inches, The town west of us got another 12 inches. The grandkids just loved the snow, and the dogs were not adverse to a game of chase through the white stuff.
This week, on Wednesday, we woke up to about 2.5 inches of rain, in the rain guage. Last night at about 1:00am, we had lightning and thunder close by, and hail fell for about 5 minutes, sounded as if it were going to come through the roof. BuddybooWhodini does not like thunderstorms so he woke me to hold him until it passed.
Maybe in another week, we can get our cabbage and onions planted,
and we will have warmer weather.

I'm Back......

Finally, after a long absence. I just haven't felt like blogging, so much has been going on, lately.
Christmas ended, and then January hit, and Jerry and I decided to get a wood permit, and cut a couple of winters worth of wood while the cutting was good. So far, we have cut 3 1/2 cord, and plan on cutting at least another half cord, before we quit. We've been lucky, only had one flat, and that happened as we were leaving town toward home. Julie's boss sent the service truck, since we were loaded down, and the guy fixed it for us. Thanks 'Julie's Boss'.
We've got Julie's cabinet carcasses almost finished, will do the face frames when they get ready to tear out the old cabinets.
Thats about our update for now. I'll try and not wait so long to post again.
