Thank you all sooooo much for letting me know you’ve missed me. Retirement is more wonderful than I could have imagined but I do miss interacting with all of you. We can all thank Kyle for figuring out the problem with the subscription service and we can now be in touch again. You know me – posts are pretty short and simple but next week I will start the sequence of photos showing you the transformation of the quilt shop into the sweetest little “lady cave” you’ve ever seen.
Every morning I go to the barn to check on everybody and lately I’ve been able to open the doors and let the goats outside for the day. It was 48 degrees here today but very foggy and drizzly. I found my little sweetie, Susannah, “asleep in the hay”, as the song goes. She was cozy in her bedding and enjoying her heat lamp – I know I baby her but she’s my baby. You understand, right?
Notice the red globe in the picture? Remember my neighbor, Emma? She’s gone now but in the early 80’s she made me this hanging ornament made with solo cups and red ball ornaments. It is my most treasured Christmas decoration and I am so very careful with it so I don’t break any of the red glass balls. It lives in its own special box until Christmas season and then I remember Emma. Oh, how I wish I had been retired when she was alive. We could have had such a fun time together!
I am planning on posting Farm News every Thursday again – if I don’t forget. You know that’s another thing about retirement – what I don’t get done one day can wait till the next. I have been blogging in the past 2 months even if you did not receive it via email. Go back to older posts and get caught up. I am also going to be posting for Connie although she will be posting on Country Threads Facebook page. Oh, I hope we can be smart enough to figure it all out. Again – three cheers for Kyle!!! I’m back!
