I am trying to master several new learning curves at one time. One to go private and the other is a new way to do my posts. My buddy Needled Mom sent me the link that she is now using as Blogger was acting up so I decided to give it a try. I’m still trying things and will probably lose the whole thing before I’m done but here we go.
I am going private because my Kids do not want me to post pictures of my grandchildren any more. They are concerned about weird*oes and heard about someone being sta*lked after being seen on a blog and mur*dered. This did not happen around here but it scared them and I have to respect their wishes. With that said, I started my blog to make a journal for my grandchildren to read when they are older and see some of the fun things that we have done over the years. This has been a huge part of my blog so I hate to give up after 549 posts that I have printed off for them so I will go to plan B and go private. Until then I won’t put any pictures in of their faces that can be recognizable.
Speaking of fun things, we carved pumpkins for Halloween last week. They were quite big so it was a challenge to get the little plastic carving tools to work. I finally got some of it started with a big knife and they finished with the tools to escape injury.
The finished project!
Sunday morning we got up to our first snow fall! It didn’t stay on long but it was so pretty coming down in big fluffy flakes.
My footprints in the first snow of the season.
It was the day we had to move the boys to the stable so I bundled up and we loaded them in the trailer. We took Lil’ Bud and Nick first leaving Kippy with a flake of hay to munch on so that he wouldn’t screech all the time we were gone. It’s only 5 or 6 minutes up the road so Miss T and the Hubs unloaded them and we came back and got the Kip. Kippy was very disgruntled to have been left alone so when we loaded him he was a little wound up and almost went right under the bar and out the escape door!!! Thankfully Miss T was there and hung onto him and made him stand still until she got him hooked.
They are all settled in now and happy as a clam in pastures much larger then mine. The one boarder that was there alone for the summer is glad for the company too. I will get some pictures, it’s a nice place for them, only second to home!! heehee!
Good grief, where is the time going? The Snow Birds are back in Florida along with Miss Buffy their cat. They had a great nonstop flight on Alle*giant Air which makes it much nicer for them then making changes in Boston or Philly. It was 86* when they arrived so Dad is in hog heaven! I miss my walking buddy so will now walk around the neighborhood instead of the woods as it is hunting season. Mom is settling in, getting unpacked and her home in order. It seems quiet here and no one to go do errands with me or out to lunch but Mom and I will make up for it when they get back home in April.
My FIL got through his hip surgery fine and is doing so well that he might come home next week! At 94 he is amazing! He is in Boston and his youngest daughter is only five minutes away.
Well hopefully this will transfer over onto my blog or I will be in big trouble and probably take a rolling pin to my computer. Time will tell………..
Thank you to all of you who e-mailed and want to stay with me private! I still don’t know why I need the e-mail address and not the blog address but will find out soon.
Have a wonderful weekend everyone!! xoxo
