I'm still here

I have been pretty lax on this posting thing. But now since I'm on facebook I think the blog might have to go by the wayside. I don't really have time for both and they are both kind of the same anyway.

Jenny's last day is today. Boo-hoo! We won't see her again until Thanksgiving, I hope. I am getting my entries ready for the fair next week.

Just think 4 months from today is Christmas! That's all for now...................

August will be nuts!

August looks to be a hectic month for me. We have something going on every weekend and sometimes both Saturday and Sunday. Jenny leaves us Aug. 25th:( So that means I will be going to the barn more. I had it rather nice this summer and only went to the barn once or twice a week. The Shawano fair is Labor Day weekend. I do take photography exhibits among a few other things to the fair. Not only that I work at the fair. I am superintendent for photography, cultural arts and woodworking. So that means I am at the fair every day. The first days are 12 hour days. Those are some looooong days working with the public. So I probably won't be blogging too much this month unless something really exciting happens, but don't count on it.

A special thank you

It was a non-stop weekend for me. Went with Mary to the big craft show in Lakewood. I had never been there before. WOW!!! I've never seen so many people in little Lakewood. Did buy a few things. Then on the way home we stopped at The Schoolhouse for a Bloody Mary. Yummy! They had a corn roast that day and the corn was free! So of course we had some. Got home and I was going to go to Green Valley for the picnic, as Jesse was in the tractor pull. So I called him just before I was going to leave. He said I just pulled and I got first place! He said there were not many tractors there. So off to Scott's 50th birthday pig roast. Again yummy! Can you tell I don't go to the barn much in the summer:) Although I did go Saturday morning before the craft show.

So Sunday I had to get to church early to help set up communion and sell the last benefit tickets I had and pick up the bars for the benefit. The off to the benefit as Jerry and the rest stayed home to bale hay. Have to do that when the sun shines you know. So I was kitchen help this time. I've never seen so many good bars and salads. Again yummy! Well, I did get to walk around a very little at the benefit. I stopped to read the thank you board. As I skimmed through it twice I didn't find my name. Well, I did give the prize and baskets a while ago already, I was a little disappointed but then thought oh well, I know what I did and how many people read all those names anyway. So I was making my way back to the kitchen and trying to look at the bucket raffles. Someone took ahold of my shoulder. I turned around and here was Lowell with tears in his eyes, thanking me for everything I did for the him and the benefit. Then I felt I hadn't done enough. I didn't need to receive such a heartfelt thank you from him. It almost brought tears to my eyes too! I had to change the subject quick and tell him how good he looked for what he went though. It looked like the benefit was a huge success!!!!! I had to go home and milk as the hay baling wasn't stopping for the cows. Sue told me she could really tell after I left the kitchen. I guess that means I was a good worker? I milked about half of the cows by myself and finally help came. That's all...........
Yea, I know I've been slacking on this thing lately. It's called LIFE!
