A Little Taste of Random | Summer's Here



I know it's only May, but it's pretty hot. To this old cranky yankee, hiding in her air conditioned house, summer is officially present. Just kidding about the cranky part of yankee. Life is a happy thing these days. Blessed, beautiful and fantastic.

If my crazy pics would upload for this post, that is. . .

Here's one, anyway. A token of the reigning official-ness of spring. We have baby duckies! Haven will have positively nothing to do with them. I never knew fuzzy, yellow fluff could be so scary.




We were up late last night, putting the aforementioned quacks in a brooder house. We couldn't handle 'em them in the laundry room anymore.  The stench was terrific. 

On another note, I'm pretty lucky to still have a husband today, as the driver nearly ran him over with a log truck the other night. It was pretty complicated set of circumstances, but from what I hear, Ethan was underneath the log truck bolting something-or-other back on it. For some very particular reason, the truck had to be revved up a notch in order for the whatever-it-was-they-were-fixing to slide into place. The driver revved it up a little too well, and the truck decided to take a rip, roarin' start down the gravel driveway. Thank the Lord, Ethan has super quick reflexes, and his angels were obviously on duty. In a split second's time, he hauled himself up underneath it and held on for the ride.

He came home and was like "Oh, yeah. Guess what happened?" Totally cool and collected. 


On to happier things: Here's a glimpse of the birthday party we threw for my mother in law. Angie is an extremely selfless, giving person. So many people have benefitted from her time and hard work. She's a heart-felt doer, and always takes time to make people feel special. How could we pass up an opportunity to give back a little? 

More pics and a detailed explanations of my cake-baking disaster + flower arranging with crazy allergies will be coming soon. 


Of course, no post would be complete without a picture of our princess. Here she is at her cousin's 1st birthday party, chasing gold balloons. 


And here's both of them at a 50th anniversary celebration. There were at least twenty five wipes on the floor, next time I turned around. 

And, yes. She does wear hairbows all the time.

Thank the Lord for watching over that son-in-law of ours! God is so merciful. You did an amazing job planning Angie's party! Love the pics of Haven.
