A Weekend Update—Tuesday, February 17, 2015

I have returned!  What a glorious weekend…first day we celebrated Tallin’s 7th Birthday!  Everyone came and showered her with very fun things to make and ‘stuff’ to do AND a Diary with a Lock and TWO KEYS!  (Guess what she played with the most…the Lock and the two keys!  🙂

Today I was starting to clean up the house when I found the two keys places in a very safe spot, under a beautiful plastic heart.  Aren’t children fun?  I need to gather all things left behind and mail them to them.  The keys will be most missed, I’m sure she is frantic. 🙂

The next day (Sunday) we went to a Mardi Gras Party at our daughter and son-in-law’s in Grand Junction. There was tons of food, some ingredients they had shipped in just for the occasion–several different types of gumbos, budan, beans and rice, cray fish…I can’t even remember all the different dishes they had.

Monday it was pack up and leave time, BUT before we said good-bye everyone went to the Shannon’s Salon (also in Grand Junction) for hair cuts, colors and whole new looks for the coming spring.  I think the little family probably got back home to Craig, Colorado at 8 o’clock in the evening…a long day for them.


A cold front moved through yesterday, but we only received sprinkles and wind..Just enough wet to make the windows dirty!

Today I’m cleaning the house back up—you clean for the company then you clean after the company 🙂 –but everyone knows that.

Soon Terry and I will begin again on the winter farm projects–this time we will be hauling in dirt from one of the ‘settling ditches’ and building up our farm roads, dirt ditches and holes in the fields.  Farming will start around the 10th of March, if the weather holds,  so we must get the winter work finished.

I will be around soon to visit all of you!

Your Friend,

  1. Sounds like a great time. I’m sure Tallin is frantic!
    I washed windows yesterday. All the rain we had made em pretty filthy! They called it milky rain from a dust storm in northern Nevada! Dumped that dirt on the windows! Lol!

    • Well, Shannon is a hairdresser and has been doing our hair for years. Since we were all together she asked if we could come down to her salon so it wasn’t so hard to do at the house…the bowls and chairs and all her scissors and color and stuff were there. If we went to her place of work, then she didn’t have to drag everything to my house.

      Everyone needed a haircut, or a color, or a trim so doing it all at once was good for her and us!

  4. I hope she didn’t lock the diary before she left …. Either way that budding author needs those keys ! Oh yeah. What a lovely family time you had. Enjoyed the latest book chapter above as well. Commenting while I cook and I need to close down here before I burn the house down.,
