We went to Kentucky for a church homecoming, and took some time to check out properties near Irvine that we saw on Zillow. Somehow our GPS got confused in the mountains, but we found the property I had my eye on purely by accident. It is everything that I want - a view, quiet, and a small house. The only problem is that we aren't ready to retire for anot her couple years, and can't afford two mortgages. I hope the LORD will keep it for us!

Good for you for being socially conscious. I'll bet these kids will keep the article for years.

Thank you, Barbara - I try to be kind because I know everyone is having problems nowadays.
Now I'd like to toot my horn...the Father's Day issue turned out nice and both pictures on the front page were mine.

The other was for Dairy Month. These children live in an apartment complex outside of Augusta. It is nicely cared for, but I suspect it is low income housing. Free lunches are delivered here every weekday, plus 3 other locations. The delivery lady suggested I go to another location that had more kids, but these children aren't seen - this may be the only time they are in the paper.

By the way, my boss wanted a 2 line headline, so I suggested "udderly." Sorry for the long explanation, but every week it seems like a miracle that we have news to print. During the pandemic, we were down to 8 pages, but now things are picking up. All I can say is support your local newspaper (or subscribe to mine!).

Vanessa---you are such a wonderful kind person. I wish the world was full of people like you. God bless your new doggie. I know how you feel painting by yourself---I have spent so many hours painting fences and buildings and decks---there is a peace in it though---time to think your own thoughts or listen to loud music.

It is! I'm thinking of sleeping outside one of these nights, but we have solar lights hooked up and they last quite a long time.

That looks like a very relaxing place Vanessa.

Today I'm sitting in our gazebo, the perfect place to sew binding on a quilt and watch Dark Shadows on Tubi.

I finished digging out the grass for my new bed, in the lower left which will have pollinator flowers. It is made from cedar and construction angles with machine bolts. Next to it is my asparagus bed. Above, next to the composted are onions and next to them are peas and carrots. Excuse the weeds, I'll get around to trimming them soon.

I have just realized that to comfortably loll on this swing I'll need to get larger cushions.

Yesterday and today I painted the road facing side of our fence. Because of the wind I had to paint it by hand and Because sweetie had a bad case of Montezuma 's revenge I did it alone.
Now I'm taking it easy before bed.

At last the spice rack was installed. I am so happy to get them all arranged and stashed away!

Plus sweetie and I re-installed the fence.

Plus we set up the picnic table and benches and the swing in the gazebo.
I'm ready to go to bed!

Happy Easter morning from the green hills of Kentucky. I hope your weather is as clear as ours, but if not, warmer days are coming.
I took the dogs for a moving tug of war this morning. The good news is Prim is mostly house trained, the unfortunate reality is she's not completely house trained. She also still nips.
But when she is calm she is sweet.

Prim will be good for my exercise regimen. I take her and Oskar on walks. Another silver lining is my floors have never been so clean.

Awww, Vanessa she does look like a sweet dog and it is very kind of you to take her into your home! With some consistency and training hopefully she will settle down and listen to you better. Please keep us posted and best of luck!

Today we got another dog. Primrose is a husky/lab? mix that my husband found on our road in August and was adopted by our daughter. Carol tried to control her- lessons, crate, dog sitting to socialize her, but today she was at the end of her rope. The lousy part is my husband took down the fence in the front yard.
Prim is a good dog, but still a puppy. I hope we survive.

Last night I was at Farm and Family night in Maysville. It was sponsored by Farm Service Agency and extension offices. There were lots of businesses and agencies handing out information and goodies. My favorite was the Maysville extension pffice, which handed out seed packets. I attended 2 classes on gardening and got more seeds. Ready for garden season!

Sweetie and I did some parenting today for our daughter Caroline. From 8 am to 4 pm we assessed the things that needed to be done, went to Lowe's, ate at Bob Evans, fixed a door hinge, pulled out a medicine cabinet, assembled an over the toilet cabinet, installed blinds on 4 windows, put in a mesh dog door, and stapled material over a ripped spot on a sofa. Tried to put in weatherstripping around a door, but it wouldn't close so took it out.
Time to relax!

I finally knuckled down and painted the 4th kitchen wall. Now it glows! 3 walls are a buttery yellow but the last one is a marigold yellow. Sweetie also got a gas stove for me - just waiting for installation.
