in bloom

My Christmas/Easter cactus can now be called my Thanksgiving/Christmas/Easter cactus. 


The pies are cooling on the rack, pumpkin and blueberry, YUM!!!

We woke up to it snowing this morning after it had rained in the evening yesterday and throughout part of the night. So traveling in my neck of the woods will be slow and steady for folks. 

I hope those who celebrate Thanksgiving here in the States have a wonderful Thanksgiving and safe travels to those who are on the road to their destination 

Happy Thanksgiving!

so much thankfulness

Oh my goodness, I can’t believe that it’s almost thanksgiving. I know it’s been quiet here on the blog but life here on our little farm has been far from quiet.
I am so blessed to have a wonderful husband who is such a big help to me. 

I’m not sure if we are done with our canning for the year. Jim shot a deer which is meat for our freezer and pantry.

Making wood was late this year, we won’t be doing that again next year that’s for sure.  I enjoy getting out to help stack the wood. I usually wake up the next day pretty sore but I love it. 

We are now in our tenth year living here in Southwest Wisconsin. Where did the time go?  We’ve had a lot of changes is our life since moving and I’m thankful for it all, the good along with the bad. I can’t believe I’m even going to say this but we are heading into our 60’s, Jim next year and me the following year. We have our health and we have each other, so life is good.
We do miss our Sadie girl, and look for her many times a day. Thank you for the kind comments and emails I appreciated them so much. 

Happy Thanksgiving to you all!

saying goodbye is so hard


This is not what I wanted to blog about when I did a blog post again.  Our hearts are breaking and I know with time they will heal.  The hardest part is our daily routine for both of us is forever changed.  From the time we woke up, to the time we went to bed, life revolved around her.  Wherever we went she went here around the farm.  On our trips to Texas she was boarded in a kennel or stayed with family.  I know she missed us when she wasn't with us as we did miss her.  Life got harder for Sadie as she was getting older, especially the last few months.  I miss my Sadie girl when I venture to the mailbox now, and I miss coming into the house and she's not there to greet us.  I guess with time, whenever I am reminded of her around here the pain won't be so bad and I will be able to smile and say without crying "Oh Sadie Girl how I miss you".  I had blogged over the years where many times she was in those posts, you can see those posts HERE.



Rest in Peace Sadie girl, you will be forever in our hearts.
