Day One (again)

If at first you don't succeed..... I started this project two years ago, and then life whisked me away for a variety of challenges and experiences. Now, I'm back..........

What have I been doing? Well, let's check the list:


Gaining then losing about 60 pounds.


Walking the Indy mini marathon with a great friend.


Walking several times a week with Wannie and Sadie. This is Sadie below!


Helping my husband recover from his third and hopefully final back surgery by feeding the cows this past winter. This is Miss 300 T, a very bossy, uncooperative cow who does not recognize anyone's personal space but her own.

Driving the girls to school and then helping with homework. Sleeping! (I fought insomnia for about four years before finally breaking the pattern). Dodging large construction equipment as we became surrounded by windmills.

Being a better farm wife and following the girls around with my camera.
Scrapbooking!



Trying to embrace my house and make it my own (we are undergoing a major addition of a sun room and attached garage.

That's not everything, but you get the idea. I am also a Creative Memories consultant, and I am a board member of the Benton County Fair and Benton County Farm Bureau.

Thanks to the Indiana Soybean Alliance  for presenting this class.  It is fun to learn again!

  8. I LOVE this. I really appreciate the before and after picture of your weight-loss. You look SO good. I hope you are taking pictures of the before, during, and after house remodeling. How about a picture of that carpet? (Maybe a before and after shot?) The sunroom and garage addition are exciting to hear about. :)
