There’s Been A Lot Going On

Hi everyone -

There has been a lot going on in our family plus we have been gone on a short trip, thus, no blog posts. 

The first thing that has happened is that our son-in-law had a bad motorcycle accident a little over 3 weeks ago.  They were visiting us and he brought a friend with him and they were out riding.  He hit some lose gravel and he came off of his cycle.  He has 4 broken ribs, a broken shoulder blade and a banged up knee.  He has had surgery on his knee and is having surgery on his shoulder blade this coming Monday in Oklahoma City.  I will go and stay with him while my daughter goes to school at night and tries to go to work some during the day.

We went to the Balloon Fiesta in Albuquerque, NM for 4 days.  It was absolutely gorgeous there.  Here are a few pictures of some of the balloons.







The balloons looked like Christmas ornaments floating in the sky when they took off.

When we got back, we were going to go and get our little Mini Schnauzer from the vet’s where he is always boarded.  The vet called the morning we were to go and pick him up and said that his diabetes was getting the best of him. We made the decision to have him go to sleep.  That is so difficult to do.  That is like one of your children.  Our house is so quiet now.  We are not going to get one at this point because we are gone for the holidays and it is so hard to board them all of the time.

I have been cleaning up the yard, getting ready for winter.  Oh how I dislike that season, but it is part of it.  It is still so hot here that our air conditioner came on several times today. 

I hope everyone has a restful Sunday.  I don’t know when I will be back since I will be in Oklahoma City some next week.  If you think about it, say a little prayer for our family at 9:30 on Monday morning.

I apologize for not having anything more interesting to post about.

Blessings ♥
