Dislike when it starts out with...

... And I was doing so good! Of course we all have days like this.  I'm slowly getting over being sick, trying to take it easy not something I'm very good at. With many things I want to do but none are things I need to do! Not yet on solid food however, I will be soon if I keep doing the things I should and not the things I want to. It's nothing I did caught a bug putting my body into to a tailspin. Now that I'm able to sit up longer at the computer, it won't be long until I'll be playing in the garden dirt a bit late but that's okay. So Haven't been posting much anywhere until Friday. I've had a scanner for over a year finally learned how to use.

Here are a few old pictures of my Mom, and our home in Amery, WI. been missing the open sky's of home. After being stuck in the house so long!

Picture was taken in 1977 
This is Tony he fell for his nest, his eyes weren't even open when he decided, I was his Mommy. Did my best to teach him how to be a squirrel, he was never a pet. Once he was strong enough he moved and spent the rest of his life living in our backyard trees. Only squirrel our dog Rusty nerve chased, and he hated squirrels as much if not more then the mailman. 

This was taken at our family reunion in 2009
With Granddaughter Katie, Mom-Grandma and Nick
Everyone who could come had a great time! 

Taken on her visit to our house in Wisconsin 1997
Next to her is Peggy Hart, in white is my Auntie Alice.
That were affectionately called the snoop sisters by many
family and friends

Our house in Amery, Wisconsin.

View from Lake Beautiful 

The wild life.

Moved back to Minneapolis, Minnesota. In the fall of 2007 so I would be closer to V.A. Hospital. Miss it the most when I stuck in the house for too long. Now we live in a place that works great for me, and no one needs to worry about me, being so far away from a Doctors care. Jane loves the 10 to 15 minute commute instead of an hour and a half to and from her work in Minneapolis.

Good that you are feeling better. Sure like the log home. I can see why you miss it.

We always thought living in one up in the foot hills would be so peaceful - plans no longer reality on that front.

Tony had the luck to fall from his nest where you could care for him very cute.
