This afternoon Sam, Aidan, Lucy and Owen came for some fun – and it was a perfect afternoon! Aidan put many miles on the old golf cart, Lucy rode part of the time and Owen and Lucy each had a blower to clean off my driveway and sidewalks. Lunch was yogurt and granola, grapes, cracker tv mix and Orange Julius – 5 years ago Aidan sat in the porch and had an OJ and he said “awesome!” Haha!!
And Ivy came, too.
Tonight all three dogs are sacked out!
Last Friday Connie and I went to Ames to shop at Quilting Connection and then we visited Lincoln View Farm west of Ames. What a gorgeous setting and lovely place!
This place was pristine – so clean and tidy everywhere. I loved their dog named Sprite, a smooth coat collie.
Yes, we both bought plants.
We also shopped in the barn for antiques – I bought a cat picture and a quadruple plate baby cup to plant a succulent in.
And now the postscript. On Monday night the farm experienced a serious fire from a power surge into their electrical system burning the barn to the ground with all those vintage treasures inside. So sad – she says she’ll rebuild and open again next spring – the resilience of an Iowa entrepreneur!
Thanks for reading – I think I’m caught up now! Be Still.
