A Brand New Great-Nephew!

I went to Fargo for a wedding and was so happy to see people I hadn't seen in about 20 years so that was fun. Also, my niece gave birth to a boy, Fischer, and I was right there in the hospital! My daughter did the video as the proud daddy was right there in the action, cutting the cord, etc. He was soooooo excited! Little Fischer is bright and looking good! I think they went home yesterday. Congrats to Nik and Chris!

I just get home from Fargo and I'm gearing up to leave for Rapid City on Friday. The happy couple made it to England for my son's wedding in October so we're more than happy for the drive out west for their wedding. Both my kids will be coming home so we'll all drive out together. My husband will be coming, too. He's been so busy delivering seed and he thinks it's about over. He needs a break so we'll all take turns driving and he won't have to.

It's raining again so the grass will grow and I will mow. The bedding plants are getting a good watering, too.

Remember what Winston Churchill once said:

"When you're going through hell, keep going!"

Beautiful Day!

Things have been pretty busy around here. My husband has been very busy delivering seed and making sure everyone has what they need. I've been keeping up with the mowing and getting the bedding plants potted. The weather has been fantastic! Now, if it just wouldn't get any warmer than it is right now (80F) we would have a great summer.

There is a shower for a friend that had a baby about 5 weeks ago and I ordered a Bumbo Chair for her. It actually came today so I can take it to the shower. I didn't think it would get here so soon but so glad that it did!

We've got 3 graduations tomorrow and 3 more on Sunday so we'll be busy with them. Next weekend we'll be going to North Dakota for a wedding and a graduation. Then the weekend after that we'll be in Rapid City, SD for another wedding. That should be the bulk of our traveling.

It's Friday and we're going to grill pork chops! We might eat late but pork chops are always good on the grill. Have a wonderful weekend!

Busy, Busy, Busy

Hooray! My son and daughter-in-law got email and written confirmation that their papers are being processed and have passed! Now all they need is the interview at the American Embassy in London! We are getting closer!

What a bunch of rotten weather we've had. We were at a wedding on Saturday evening and had no idea that there was a tornado warning for our immediate area! The emergency sirens weren't working in the north part of town so we just went right along with the wedding totally unaware that we should be seeking shelter. Thankfully the tornado went east of us. The tornado did hit east of town and did some damage to houses and farm buildings but there were no injuries. The river is to exceed flood stage by the end of the week and it is very high right now! I drove out to one of my jobs this morning and had to turn around and take a different route because the road was flooded! I couldn't even see the bridge! It sounds like we could get more storms this coming weekend. We are praying that they won't be severe. Keep the survivors and victims of the Greensburg, KS storm in your prayers.
