Blue Sky Farm

My blogging posts and photos are part of me . I think of this as a scrapbook of my life. The names have not been changed.. they are real people who have crossed my path along my journey. Some I know intimately, my family and friends. If their names are mentioned it's a sure sign they are special to me and I love them dearly...come along see for yourself, perhaps you know some of them too..

Being a Grandma is so much fun!

I am going to Denver..Yipee!
Flying out next Saturday the 18th.
Dennis has a magic show that night and I will get to see him perform..
Michelle you have a tough act to follow!
Then if "charlie hasn't arrived into this world he will perform on the 19th!"
Making it even a more special birthday for me!
I am so excited. This is hubby's birthday pressie to me.
He cannot join me on this trip as he has some other medical business to tend to.
He will be taking me to Portland to catch the plane. Its a 5 hour drive... I could fly straight to SanFrancisco & change planes but a non-stop goes from Portland direct so I chose that flight. and He has family in the area so will go there & then come back to pick me up the 1st of November.
I will post pix of "Charlie " asap.

Friday Morning but No snow!

Another cold morning, but no snow. Cloudy & a bit windy 38 degrees but sunny right now at 11 am.
It was predicted but thankfully it didn't fall. I heard maybe today again but only 30% and that may well be only in the higher areas.

The deer are bedded down on the hillside behind the house, under the juniper trees & prairie grasses & wandering only a few feet grazing on shrubs close. A bit jittery I think since deer season is here and hunters are about.

I canned 6 more jars of Italian prunes this morning and that take care of the remaining I had.
Will make some more bread today. Priced it yesterday in the store nearly $4 a loaf, for a healthy & wholesome loaf, not the cheaper white fluff.
We are really working on reducing our household costs here as winter sets in, with our economy where it is. It is a challenge for everyone I am sure.
Bought energy saving light bulbs yesterday and gleaned the remaining beets and peas from the garden.
