Earthquake in England!

Wow, my daughter-in-law called from England and they were in the county of Kent that had the earthquake Sat. morning. She felt it, their house shook for about 30 seconds! Please say a prayer for her, she is waiting for her papers to be processed and for the call to go to the US Embassy in London for an interview so she can move over here and be with her husband (my son). He is lonely and missing her as she is him. Other than that, it has been very quiet around here. Today is a beautiful day and my husband is out delivering seed (dragging his little trailer behind him)! I think we're going to grill when he gets home. It's light out until 8:00 now. It would be nice to have this much light in the winter when we only get about 9 hours of daylight. Thank God for life!

Rain Again

Wow, it's been raining for a couple of days now! Last night we had a lot of thunder and lightning plus rain. Parts of the state got tennis ball size hail and it did a lot of damage! We went to church this morning and our Bell Choir played it's last service until we resume practice in the fall. Our Celebration Choir also sang so I was busy this morning. Later this evening we went to a neighbor's house for steak on the grill, deer steak, and it was very good! We also enjoyed the good company. We're ready for the new week and hope you are, too!

It's Raining Some More

We had a couple days of great weather but today it's been cloudy and rainy. Our sump pumps are running like mad! It's been a basic day with not much out of the ordinary. Our bell choir went out for supper last night as it was our last practice for the year. I am watching "Gray's Anatomy" which is one I haven't seen. That's about as exciting as it's been today so I'll close. Keep the VT students in your thoughts and prayers.

Is It Really Spring?

Since Easter we have had winter again! There was a healthy amount of snow and rain on Tuesday and Wednesday, the 10th and 11th. Since Saturday we have had real spring temps. We're opening windows and airing out the house and all of those other spring things! But, living in SD you never know when you'll need your coat and boots again;) Today has been just beautiful!

Say prayers for the victims of the Virginia Tech tragedy. Also remember their families and the victims that have been hospitalized. satan is too alive and well in our world.

Easter Sunday

We have had a wonderful time in Iowa with our son. We are now getting ready to leave and go home. Our son will be flying to England on Tuesday to be with his wife for about 10 days. We're still hoping that she will be able to come back to the US very soon. We went to church this morning and then I cooked our Easter meal. We'll be heading for home shortly and I know our cat will be overjoyed to see us! I hope all of you had a very good Easter and spent some quality time with family and friends.

Celebrate Easter

Boy did it get cold! We'd had such nice warm weather and now it's below freezing and supposed to get into the teens tonight. Brrrrr! Friday we're off to Iowa to spend Easter with our son. He's providing the menu and I'm cooking. His wife is English and is waiting for all her papers to be processed so she can move over here. She was here for 90 days after they were married (in England) and now waits for the US to determine if all her papers are in order so she can rejoin her husband and get a green card. She's an elementary teacher and would like to teach in the US. Right now she's living in Dover, England with her parents until the US Embassy in London calls and requests her presence for an interview. We're hoping things will move quickly and she'll be over here by summer. We would appreciate any prayers on her behalf. Have a spectacular Easter!

What a Great Weekend!

My friend and I had so much fun in Fargo! We went on Friday and it rained the whole 5 hours it took us to get there. It rained all day Saturday and today it snowed until we were about 2 hours from home. (Glad I didn't drive.) The Clapton concert was super and it was his 62nd birthday. We went shopping (of course) with my daughter and had some delicious meals! It was kind of a slow go home but we were both glad to be back. We're planning another "girls only" trip but haven't decided where to go yet.
