NC Mountains and Baby Skyler Here I Come!
This week has found me getting the homestead all mowed, raked, cleaned up as best I can with all the rain showers we are getting. I am heading to the mountains Sunday to see my new grandbaby and visit with daughters, grands, son in laws, and just enjoy my mountains. I am going for two weeks but will check in to show off baby pics and updates. I will hopefully have more time to visit your blog while I relax. Two weeks without feeding and caring for the animals is going to be hard for me to do but I am so looking forward to a break with my girls and their families. Grandson Harvey will be going home Sunday but his older brother Will is coming to stay with PopPop and help around the homestead. He is 13 and a big help with the animals. I have made William promise not to work him too hard and let him spend a few nights with his friend as he only sees him when he is here. I am sure I will get lots of phone calls and will even give lots of directions on caring for the animals but they will be taken care of. I think William will even be able to see why some of my projects aren't done yet after he takes over my chores for two weeks. But I am very blessed to be able to go away for that long. I am also very excited to hold and love on Skyler as well as catch up with all the other grandkids. Haven't seen them since last Christmas except for Melody when she stopped by on a business trip. Got lots to catch up on and lots of time to just sit and enjoy those beautiful mountains! Back to work for me. Still got lots to do before Sunday. We are having a petting Zoo at Tractor Supply Saturday. Got to get some of the animals ready. Got pens to clean, water bowls, bottles to bleach and clothes to pack..... Have a very blessed evening and stay cool!
