I've just been busy. I don't know why, but March and April seem to be packed full this year!
While Joe was home I found and brought home this wonderful sleeper sofa. I have been looking for one for ages and I was so pleased to have found one that I liked and could afford! Of course this calls for a total rearranging of the living room and library, but again, it's a start!
Joe and I celebrated our 21st wedding anniversary with an overnight stay at the beautiful Bellhurst Castle in Geneva. So romantic!
Matthew had his big global project on witchcraft in the middle ages. ( He received a grade of 101.1!)
Then there was prom. Both Ben and Jim took dates. Jimmy actually wore his father's tux!! Unbelievable! (And he looked good in it too!)
Then there was that nasty, horrible cold virus. I was down for a week and up but still feeling kind of punk for another week. Joe took good care of me and to thank him, I infected him! Poor guy got to stay home and extra week, but couldn't really function for 5 or 6 days. I tell you that virus was vicious!
We finally got some decent weather and were able to plant more trees: pecans, hazelnut, peach. And we were finally able to bury my poor Sammy.
We fenced a part of the yard so the dogs could run. (They love it!) And took down the old fence where I used to keep the goats.
Speaking of critters, Joe also got me some more chickens. I know have 8 3 week old chickens living in my basement!
Between that and the dentist (3/4 crown) and the Senior Bash Committee (big party parents throw the graduating class) and Library board stuff (Diane never told me I was actually gonna have to do stuff!) And just the day to day stuff of living I haven't been keeping up with my blogging duties! And I do apologize and will try to do better from now on.
Have a wonderful day ya'll!
