I know it's been a while. I'm not sure if we're back in business yet or not. Only time will tell. I still don't know if we'll be able to recover the drives that I use for downloading pics so it'll just be words for a bit.
We've had so much fun of late. A whole week with our Dad. It included: fishing, seeing an old steam train that stopped here--very last minute, but perfect fun--, rearranging so we our front room is more of a kid area and the library more of a Mom can make a mess and close the door area. Speaking of that there was some sewing done as well. I don't know what's come over me, but I can't seem to get enough. I've even made a few little girl skirts that turned out really cute. I never thought I'd be making clothes, but here I go. Some yard clean up and garden planting. We have another week or so before danger of frost is past, but our peas are up about and inch and radishes are growing well. It's almost time for the first cutting of rhubarb. Yippee! A new little one joined my sister's family and she's a doll. We're excited to meet her once all evidence of illness is past us. Yeah, we've had some more sickness around here.

Enough of the "update" Now for a little fishing story. We'd been fishing for a little while and I wasn't feeling good and the clouds were starting to look threatening so the grownups of the clan decided it was time to call it a day. We'd just seen the guys down the shoreline catch a nice fish, but it was time to go. Well the oldest child of the clan was not pleased by this choice. Most of the way home and even several time once he was in bed we heard, "No, a storm is not coming! We need to catch a fish, we need to catch a fish, we need to catch a fish." So for a first time really fishing we have ourselves a little fisherman. Have a wonderful Day!

I am glad that you are back on even if there are no pictures. Good to hear about life and hope that you all are feeling better now.
