I'm here

Whew, it's been a while.

So, what have I been up to.....lots.  Mostly work right now.  We are in the middle of a computer meltdown at the store...not a good thing going into the holiday season, but if all goes well we will be using new computers by Friday.....let's hope anyway.  I just changed the computer for one of our PAZZLES, a nice upgrade from the ancient one we had all the info on.  I can actually see the screen have to see this old computer to know what I am talking about. I will be able to show the next PAZZLE project soon, the latest project was "sent" last week.  I love the way they are doing the program this year.  It is so much easier!

I haven't even had time to check my pals blogs or upload photos or anything.  And here I thought that having the kids out of sports for the next few months would make my life easier...ha!  It doesn't help to have Christmas shopping in the way of the few days off that I actually have.

I should probably mention that I am an Aunt again.  My niece arrived last night unexpectedly ...and almost 3 months early.  She is doing well so far, so if you have prayers to share...share them with my Brother and his wife and family.

Check back again soon....or not. :)

Weird veggies

This must have been the season for strange veggies in our garden. Today...yes today...we finally got our potatoes out of the ground. Considering the ground has been frozen for several days now.....I am surprised that we only lost 2 potatoes.

And with the cold, our barn kitties have been hanging out in a "lump" in the shed.  We couldn't find one kitty yesterday and it's because he is under this pile of cats, there are 6 in this pile.  Silly kitties.  I don't know why they aren't in the little house we have for them....they seem like this old floor pillow that sits on top of the hay pile instead.

State finals

They came, they ran, they did a great job.

The team came out with a 7th place title.  Since they went into the competition with a 14th place ranking over their heads, they did a super job.  Nick came in 85th out of a field of 150 of the top runners in the state in level D3.  He still finished 3rd for his team, just like he usually did, but the competition was very tough...all I can say is WOW, that was the FASTEST race I have EVER seen.

The whole thing was just crazy!  I have NEVER seen so many people in one place watching people run around.  I wish I had the camera on for some of it, you would not believe it.

Now I can resume my normal life again........ha ha
