Updates~Updates & More Updates

A huge Hi everyone... I just wanted to stop in and give everyone updates on JULY..
Above is picture of my little pond in my flowerbed at my house in Port Clinton...The house I'm trying to sell. I guess I will start my updates on the sale of the house... Ugg..Not sold yet.. My realtor and I decided that I needed to change realtors because he is so busy on the the Island working that he doesn't have time to go to the mainland to show the house or do any open houses.. So as of yesterday he is no longer the realtor. I have an appointment with a new realtor Friday at 3:00 to start all over again...she promises to do some Open houses ASAP... so we shall see how that goes...

Update #2 I have my van back with a new Transmission and it is running very nicely now..If I can make it threw July with no further Van problems I will be one happy lady...LOL..Thank God for a the good mechanic for working so quickly to get it fixed so I was able to spend less on the car rental and be back on the road in my van.. A huge Thank God for John for helping me get the funds together to pay for the repair..

Update#3 I had to move my camper on the Island to a new location due to unforseen problems with some people on the Island... with where it was parked..Rather then fight them we jsut moved it to another friends farm out in the woods... I was very sad that I had to move it because I really like the 80 yr old gentleman who let me keep it at his house. I cleaned his house and spent time helping him in exchange for letting me park the camper on his property. When I told him I was moving it he got all teary and sad..but I promised I would still help him take care of the house and visit with him every weekend...
I actually love where the camper is now.. very private and quiet in a wooded area with fram animals and wood critters all around....I'll take a picture and share it with you next week...

Update#4 I have had very little chance to get outin the shop to work with so much going on in my life with work and broken down vans but last night I got to spend 8 hours in the shop creating two special order gatherings.. I was so tickled to hide away with all my supplies and work...refreshed me totally!!

Update#5 My friend Laura was abelt o return home but is back in the hospital..this time she was in a coma for 2 days. She's awake now and as of last night she had been moved out of ICU.. She is not doing so well and is still very depressed as well as very sick...I'm so worried about her and John too. This is so hard on him not knowing what is going to happen hanging in the air like dark clouds.
So please do keep them in your prayers.

Update #6 The Baby Chickens have decided they really like there new coupe and the freedom they have during the day when we let them out to roam the barnyard... At night Peg scoops them out some food and they come a running to the coupe to have dinner and go the bed for the is so cute....!

We had a surprise today we got a Fainting Goat delivered to our little farm... Some one had to give him away and well all the animal lovers around here all said sure why not so he now has a new home and the kids all think heis just so cool... Pictures to come...

I think that is about it ....time for me to call it a day so I can get up early and chead back to the island for another weekend of makin beds!!

So until we meet again may your days be filled with Sunshine and Happy moments!!
