Round-Up

Wow, its been a week since my last post!
I sure didn't mean to be gone this long.
Things just got busy.

My daughter is finally out of the Army!

She is back home with her little guy!


I got to tag along for his check-up.


He is so darn funny!

Then we ended up with some wicked weather rolling thru the end of last week.


Somebody sent me this picture of a tornado touching down near our farm.

Thankfully it was a few miles away.
The only real damage it did was to some trees in a nearby state park.



When I left for the farm to check out the storm damage I decided to stay out there for a few days.
And I never even bothered to pack my laptop!
It sure felt nice to be away from the internet for awhile.

I spent most of my time working in the yard.
Pulling weeds in the garden.
Weed wacking around the house.


Sunday night the grandson came out to enjoy some time with grandpa.


He already loves golf cart rides!

Today I am headed back out to the farm to start picking cherries.
But my first stop is going to be at the u-pick strawberry patch not far from us.

Tomorrow let the jam making begin!
