I HAVE MISSED YOU!!!
I’ve had so much going on around the farm for the last few weeks that I just haven’t had time to blog.
I have been trying to visit and keep up with what’s going on in your neck of the woods. I get a little behind with my visits with you, but have faith, I will be there, eventually.
As some of you know my brother has been hospitalized since just before Christmas with various health issues. And it appears he will be there for quite awhile longer. Not sure just how long. It really depends of how quickly his body heals itself.
The holidays were a little strange for me this year. I just couldn’t get the spirit of the season.
And I tried really hard!
I did get to visit with my kids and their families which is always a happy time for me. I miss them when our time apart is too long. They are all doing well and I couldn’t ask for anything more for them.
We had a small New Year’s Eve party on the farm with family and friends. Complete with lots of food, champagne and of course, the karaoke had to be sang.
Altogether happiness was shared as we watched the ball drop and brought in the new year.
Stress has been at an all time high for much too long and I am working to find ways to manage it more effectively. Feel free to share any tips you might have for the ways you control your stress.
In other farm news…..
Most of you know I have been laid-off from my job for almost a year now. And with my background in the auto industry it doesn’t look like I will be returning to that industry. Also, it makes it hard to find work elsewhere.
So I enrolled in our local technical college and have begun a two year course toward a future career.
WISH ME LUCK!
I’m sure there will be some blog stories coming from that.
On a more somber note…
This week our faithful farm dog, Nanook, went to dog Heaven.
It was a very sad day for us.
She lived a long life of almost 16 years and had been on the farm almost as long as we have.
We miss her terribly.
We have been finishing up some remodeling inside the house.
And have more to go.
I’ll have pictures for you soon.
I’m hoping to begin regular posting again,
Cause you know I don’t like posting without pictures.
So, how have you been?
