Hi Everyone! What a month or two we have experienced lately! Full of ups and downs and highs and lows but through everything we go through, God is always faithful, isn't he?
We are moved in to our new house...it seems that it is getting smaller everyday with the stuff we keep putting into the house. But we love it and it really seems cozy to us! It is probably just over 1/3 the size of the old house we have. (WE haven't yet put it on the market...hopefully soon!)

It is really neat to live farther out into the country! It isn't unusual to see and hear a tractor driving down the road! The field next to the woods behind our house is being prepared to plow and plant and so is the big field in front of our house!

I bought strawberry plants to start a strawberry patch!!! Now if I can just keep the critters out of them! My daughter Marci bought me a lilac bush and Roger bought me a Japanese Maple and my Dad gave us some peony plants. With the tomato plants that I bought a while back, that is about all the planting we have planned for right now.

We are still going through the adoption process! I had to have a physical in order to complete the paperwork and GOOD GRIEF!!!! I was shocked to find out that I have diabetes! It's not too bad right now and all I have to do is watch my diet and LOSE WEIGHT!!!!!!!!!!! LOTS AND LOTS OF WEIGHT! (120 pounds????? Yuck....) So that was two weeks ago and I have already lost 16 pounds!! It has been pretty easy...just really cutting back, taking my blood sugar and cut out the sugar! I'm not sure that I can actually lose that much weight but I am going to try to lose at least 80 pounds.
A day or so after I went to the doctor, I came down with the most horrible cough/cold/bronchitis etc.... and have been pretty sick since then but I am finally on the way to recovery. I wonder if it could have been helped to bring it on so badly since I had a tetanus/pertussis shot at my physical.

By the way, we don't have Internet access yet at our new house. The only time I can get online is when we go to the old house and then the girls seem to be doing their schoolwork online!

Well, my little granddaughter is currently in desperate need for strawberries so I suppose I need to get offline and get her some!

Have a lovely day!
