Summer Flying By

Are you feeling it?



This summer is going fast.

Too fast!

Last week I had many adventures, besides my daily life on our small farm.



1.  Traveled with "musher" friends to Michigan's Upper Peninsula 
and had a wonderful lunch in Mackinaw City.

2.  Invited to a wonderful dinner in my hometown, 
nestled by Lake Michigan, 
hosted by my childhood friend, 
Dorothy
who was visiting from Wisconsin with family.

3.  Headed to an auction last weekend, selling our wares. 
More on that later...



And spent my birthday at the start of this week with my youngest son, 
(the golfer) 
who was/is visiting from California.

FYI, he missed being in the U.S. Open by 2 strokes...he shot a 72.
Next year, Mark!



Photo taken at my Mother's beautiful home, in my hometown.

Enjoyed a week of family, friends, good food, and fellowship, and the week isn't over yet...
so the craziness continues!

Speaking of crazy
our baby goat was really getting into her tree-climbing act!
Little Olive is quite the show off!
Can you see her in the tree, pictured above?

I'll update soon, and should have some news about horse training.

We have decided it is needed...and are making plans.
Amish style.




Stay tuned!


Until then, dear friends.  God willing.
And wishing you many blessings during your summer months!

It sounds like you've had an awesome week! I've missed reading your posts for the last few months and look forward to catching up and seeing your beautiful photos.

I have been unable to "fix" my previous blog so I started a new one. Hope you'll stop by for a visit.
