Let's see, I had a meltdown last week and took off to spend a few days with my brother. I relaxed, went to garage sales, and took alot of naps. That, and a couple of delightful dinners with a new "friend" and I am back.
I've hired someone to do the yard work, so that is a major load off of me, and I'm really excited for him to get started tomorrow.
Last weekend was my family reunion held here at the farm. The weather was lovely, and everyone had a great time. I counted 35 people at one time, but I know I was way short. Then you need to add in the dogs.
Above is the floral arrangement I had in the bathtub. That is my new favorite place to put flowers. If I can ever access my pictures, I will share my remodel of my rooms with you, but my desktop got infected and crashed. I think my pictures are the only thing I care about retrieving from that computer.
A small arrangement on my kitchen sill.
Officer Burke came down the drive with his lights on, but he was just here to say hi to his wife, my cousin, until he could join us later in the day.
Here is the Motley "Moehring" Crew. I can actually count myself as shorty in this group. I'm kneeling on the far right.
Here are the Patriarchs. My Uncle on the left is: ??? Well, late 80's. He is younger than my mom and she would have been 90 this year,. Then her cousin is on the right and is almost 93. He is an inspiration to us all. He had made an 8 foot long family tree that we hung on the fence so everyone could view it. I'm not really into ancestry, but I have to admit I was impressed. I prefer to center my love and attention on those who are here with me now.
The next morning, my Mom's cousin (I can never get straight if she is a second cousin, or removed or added or divided) and I enjoyed brunch at my favorite little Italian restaurant inDeming: Il Cafe Refugio.
Meanwhile, I am trying to catch up on laundry and put away all the stuff I brought home with me. It is extensive.
