 Chippy decided it was safe to venture
out this afternoon. 
Notice some 'mud' in the background? 
This is where I decided to add on to this flower bed.
I just didn't know it was going to rain for days before
I could get it planted and mulch down.

 This is the new bird condo Neil made the other day.
Had no idea a couple blue bird families would
decide to move in and be neighbors!
 This is the backyard.  As you can see the woods and hill are turning
quite green.  Also the grass is growing fast and needs mowing.  That round flower
bed needs planted with something good this year.  Not sure what I'm doing  with it yet!
This was taken a couple days ago from the front porch. 
Many times in the last few days this 'lake' has come and gone.
It is hard to see the road over there with the creek on the other side of the road.
Usually this is a quiet creek but with all the rain it has been a roaring river
most days.  We are lucky even though the road out front as been closed a lot
we can go the other way to get out to the main road. 
I will be glad when this rainy season is over!   Hope our driveway
doesn't wash down the hill before we can work on it.

Oh the joys of country life! 


I know I have been missing in action as far as blogging goes.   It  has been a year that many times seems to be crawling by and then it speeds up so fast I'm not sure what is going on.

It has been a year of many new adventures.   Living in the country and suddenly Neil is retired is a 'whole' new adjustment.   He did get his dream workshop built last summer and then worked most of the winter getting it all set up.  Big excitement out there today.........he now has a working toliet!   In fact I'm a bit jealous of his bathroom in the workshop as it is SO good looking. 

I'm a Nana

This little precious arrived in March.
Kaylee Elizabeth White

Here she is just a few hours old and it is a bit freaky to be holding such a tiny new one.
Since I've never been around little babies I'm wishing her life away but I can't wait until she is able to play and learn all sorts of fiber type
of things.!

I spent most of the winter knitting.   My wool room is set up.   I'm not very happy with how it looks so it still needs lots of tweeking...........which I think has to start with paint!  Several groups of hookers have been over. 

Just hope we get past this rainy season.   We have a lake now at the bottom of our hill and the road out there has been flooded for many days.  We can still get out going the other way which is a good thing.   Just as long as we don't slide down the hill we will have it made.
