It was wonderful to see friends this summer. Michell, Pierre and Jacob came for a long weekend and we had a fun time. Talk about girl-talk. Michelle wasn't it fun? We talked about school days and present times.  We had so much fun, eating out and grilling.. It's always nice to visit good, good friends. Sorry no pictures, whats up with that? Next time.
  My friend Tina came about every 3 weeks. Either we would have a nice lunch, cup of coffee or a long walk. Remember Tina, 2 hour walk? Wow, I still can feel it. *grin* 
    Tina's mother is soooo awsome. She found out she had cancer and let me tell you. Not once, friends and family, not once did she mope around or feel sorry for herself. Her spirits where up and what a postive attitude. Her mother had a guardian angel watching over and from the Grace of God she is cancer FREE... Isn't HE wonderful? I'm so happy. Tina thanks for the special times together.
   My girlfriend Pam got married this summer. What a wonderful, fantastic day for them. Even though it was rainy cold and miserable outside. It was warm and cozy inside. What a Great couple and Myron that kuchen was awsome. I did have to share when I got home. *sigh*
     It was a great evening and I"m so glad that Clay and I got to share that special day with them. See you soon.......
       What a great time going over to Sue and Troys for supper. Sue YOU are a good cook. Man, that was a good meal. Creamed chicken, potatos and a veggie..Yum, yum. So nice to catch up and be back home. It was nice to glance once more out the window and see what I'm missing. The lake. Yup, I still miss the lake. Or maybe it's just my good friends next door. You know when we are together we never seem to run out of words. Is that good or bad? Not sure. And my goodness Erin has sure grown. She's taller than me. What a cutie too. Thanks Sue for being a friend.
     Proverbs 17:17 A friend is always loyal, and a brother is born to help in time of need.

Where Did the Time Go

Did we have summer? It seems our summers are getting shorter and shorter. I'm sorry it's been a long time since I updated my Blog. Excuse: enjoying every moment I could outside when the weather permitted.
   We had a fun summer with lots of friends and family. We went to Wis. for husbands nephew's wedding and what a Blast it was. After the wedding we spend time with friends. Our first stop we stayed and Mike and Bindy's in Dover, Mn. What fun. Ahhh, God is so good. To give us good friends. *smile*. We stayed there for about 3 nights and than off to Bill and Barbs and had just as much fun.
  Than we enjoyed the company of Clay's nephew Evan and new bride Maleah. They had a small fire in their apartment and so they stayed with us for about 4 weeks. Poor Dears, being newly weds and all. But, for us we enjoyed their company and getting to know them. They are wonderful kids. With the love of the Lord in their hearts.
   Clays mom and sisters came for night to visit. We enjoyed their company it was fun to visit and we had a nice evening sitting out on the deck and cooking on the grill. What fun.
  My parents came a couple tiimes along with my older sister. Of course we always enjoy having them around. Just to have that time to visit and play games with them.
  My sister from Tenn. and her family came for a visit to a Aberdeen and what fun was that? We went to Story Book land, cook outs and good visits. It had been a long time since we seen her family and grandson. So what t GREAT time that was. Than a month ago Rhonda flew in again to Aberdeen and I got to spend a week with her and her grandson. That was GREAT time too. Love you Rhonda. ~smile~ Yes, God is good and arounds in many ways. Just stop and listen you will hear him.
  Now back to our fall. Jack Frost around the corner and YOU all know what follows? Old man winter. *sigh* I just hope it's not a replay of last years winter. If so I might just have to learn to go outside and enjoy the snow.. Yea, right..........
  I cannot forget how fun trick or treating was with the grandkids. Let me see, Mani was Pippi Longstocking (remember her, girls?) Kye was a very friendly Dracula and Caleb was scarriest of all he as Mike Meyers, if know one is familiar with him, he's the horrible guy from Halloween movies...Shiver, he was VERY scarry.
 Soon I will post about the boys and Clays hunting adventure: so stay tuned.
