I don't make resolutions but the truth is, I need to take better care of myself. This quote reminds me to keep other things in mind than just the wonderful taste of the foods I love. Happy New Year!

In the country

We have moved to Iowa! We fell in love with this spot 5 years ago and now we live on the property we bought. Sometimes we have to pinch ourselves, can hardly believe it...but we are here and in a house. I am looking out at rolling hills and acres and acres of tasseling corn. I am happy to be here, but it is not without some frustration. Being used to having high speed internet, even taking it for granted, it has come as quite a shock that we cannot get high speed service here in the country, in the middle of nowhere. Really? We'll keep trying though and in the meanwhile I will enjoy the waves of corn and the deer and blue birds.

Gabe - A big help

We have had some forceful winds recently which tore the tarp off our wood pile. Tennis and Gabe spent a few hours this afternoon out in the cold repairing it. The fir isn't seasoned yet so we are trying to keep it covered for at least a few more months. It's something Tennis couldn't have done by himself today so I appreciate Gabe's help.

High School Graduation

Gabe's friends from high school who went away to college are now trickling in from their various schools back to our town. We're glad he is connecting with these guys knowing that they might be friends for life.

What a good uncle

Today Maddy and Trinny came over for a few hours. Gabe built castles with the girls out of wooden blocks and they had fun knocking them down. These pics show Gabe sliding Trinny back and forth through his legs. She had never done that before and had so much fun! She loves her uncle Gabe.
