Things have been going fairly well, with the in-laws – A few scuffles here and there. It’s a territorial issue I have, I’m sure.
They are honest and good people and I love having them around, but their ways are not my ways.
They help around the house when they come – a lot! the rest of the porch got taken to the dump. The dishwasher which has been taking up space is gone and we’re talking about putting in some shelves. The floor is on the list to be scraped and my new flooring being put down! whooooot! It’s great to have the help. (and while they are here, the kids get inducted into the work force – without complaint)
The cool things are that Mom and I laugh a lot, Dad Reads me the newspaper in the morning, We squabble over coffee and kitchen space. We’ve enjoyed the changing of the seasons and shopping – but they do NOT like the prices here!
All in all.. I’m glad they’re here!
We’ve had an additional guest this last week. The common cold. At least it had the decency to wait until after the Disney world trip. Right? Counting my blessings – Yes I am! Hubby actually stayed home sick for two days! so you know it was a bad one.
Hubby is SOOO on board with the Goats now. In Disney World he tasted some cheese from Norway that he wants to make at home. Whoot! We’re a Go – despite the lowered money pool!
I gave away five more chickens and I have just the right number. The little rooster has finally stopped crowing at 4:30 with his shrill little voice – and I no longer dream of making chicken and dumplings. so far no broodies, but I’m good with that and Egg production is up! Waiting for December to prune the trees.
My writing has lapsed again. I want to blame company, but it would only be a half truth. I just haven’t made the time. I don’t really feel bad, they aren’t coming again until next year.
I am so grateful for the wonderful weather on Veterans Day! I am sooooo Grateful for the service they give to this country. Dedicating their very lives to protecting our borders and way of life. For those men and women that served in the military I salute you!
My heart goes out to those who returned to their home with flash backs, physical disorders and injuries, and the mental disorders that come from that type of environment. There shouldn’t be a single day dedicated to the Veterans. EVERY DAY should be veterans day. Without them, we wouldn’t be who we are.. or be able to do those things that we do and take for granted.
