Hello there! Maybe I should introduce myself since I have been gone so long. My name is Kim and I used to be a blogger. Now I seem to go on longer and longer hiatus. I blame the election. I got all caught up into it. Now I am trying to make it back to normal. It has been one of those months it seems. Our fridge went out, our garage door blew a spring. William and Makenzie and Kessie and Ryan, the marrieds moved. Our oldest daughter and her family even moved to a new town.
Emilie and Nik the other marrieds were in Hawaii. Ron has worked non-stop for weeks and is booked up until Christmas. Which is good because the first of the year, they had cut his hours so much. Its just never ending sometimes don't you think? Ben and Megan have been going ninety miles an hour, and Ben somehow managed to find time to finish the motor on the windmill. Its really purty. I will take pictures of it when the motor comes home. Next will be to get the derrick built and to put it up. What a dream come true that will be. Then I suppose you will see nothing but pictures of that windmill. You know this is a blog about a field of dreams. Having that windmill, is the biggest dream I have ever dreamed in my whole life.
Remember when we brought it home?
That is what I have stared at for years and years. I think it was moved there when I was four years old.
If you click on that last picture it says 1915. Its 101 years old. That is the motor Ben redid and now it is red and black and looks brand new. I told him he never has to buy me another present as long as I live. You know what? I have the most amazing kids. Not a single dud in the bunch!! Oh the goodness of God to me and Ron.
I did manage to finish my turkey rug. The pattern is from Falloween Threads by Need'l Love. So glad I got it finished before Thanksgiving. Its colder now so I am getting my hooking and stitching mojo back Yay, I was afraid it was gone forever.
Its a beautiful day here today. The air has the right feel for November. The beauty continues to amaze me and fill me with Thankfulness. I noticed my bulbs are coming up already. Bulbs are such surprise gifts. My two youngest grand daughters have birthdays coming up. They are going to be one and three. Time sure goes by fast. Do you want to see the picture Makenzie got for me?
Since we painted I have been very slow about getting things back on the wall. When everyone was here in May, we had this picture taken by Makenzie. She had it blown up and now its on the wall. I had the sign in my shed. I would have to say that picture defines my life. I still can't believe that this is because Ron and I started a life together. I need to put a another sign that says under construction/ work in progress.
Anyway bragged way to much in the post. I never start out to write a bragging post. There has just been so much bad news it seems. I just wanted to remind myself of the good things going on around here and things to be thankful of. Things I forget watching the news.
I hope you have a lovely day and thank you so very much for stopping by and taking the time out of your busy day to read my blog. I appreciate each and every one.
