bye to 07

Silly me... I thought the first "creature" to be in the new barn would be a horse... should have figured it would be a "deere"!!!! But, with the upstairs decking all in place, Ed couldn't bear to let his little tractor be out in the weather, and with the prediction of more snow, he just had to tuck it under cover!!!!!

Here it is, a "real barn look"... and it's easy for me to "see" the stalls now, and just imagine our horses safe and sound in their own home. I can hardly wait for the day when they will really live here and will be only a short walk to go and see them whenever we choose.

So, the last day of 2007... it's been a good year, it certainly was filled with many major changes... Kay passing, the business selling, Nate to and from Iraq, Sadie off to barn!!! We haven't had a year with so many things like this one. Tonight we are getting together with the families for a Chinese feed!!! and again tomorrow the prediction of more snow!!!!

It's very pretty, and from that point, I love waking up in the mornings and seeing the world in a whole new way. But, it's time consuming as well. Ed finds himself out plowing, and then cleaning up the work site whenever they get back to building. We certainly can consider this an "old fashion" winter, I remember these winters from my childhood. I did say to Ed that in some ways this is pretty handy, because as we plan for winters at the farm, we are seeing it in real life this year!!! and that actually is a help.

I am looking forward to 2008, I have a feeling it will be another year of big changes, but for the most part, they are going to be positive ones.... I am very blessed!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
