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..

Busy Busy Busy

I must apologize to my faithful readers..I have not posted since Sept 15th... I have been so Busy.... The garden is put to rest, now the potaoes are harvested and "the girls " are happy to be back inside the garden gate.
My pantry shelves are full and I just made batch of blackberry Jam.
My sister and her husband came to visit and left yesterday after a week of fun and she helped me make the jam. I had time today to change the guest bed and refresh the room.. Clay's brother and his wife are arriving tomorrow late afternoon.. Monday I have routine labs done at the hostpital and Tuesday is my follow up Dr appointment before leaving for Australia.. October 11th.  (Thats only 11 days from now ).You know how that goes, getting flu shot and rx refills for the time away.. I have a couple things ready to pack but not quie sure what I will need for weather conditions there.. I am thinking  early "Spring" attire: layered shirts and sweaters cropped pants then once there we fly to the Barrier Reef so tropical summer clothes. How am I going to pack all this in one large case? Easy daughter and I wear nearly the same size so I will borrow from her anything I dont need to take..
She has planned a great itenerary for us.. including a couple wine tours, dinners, sightseeing and kick back time and to celebrate My 65th Birthday! I know I will be exhausted after the 15 hour flight say nothing about the four hour drive to catch the first leg of the journey from Reno to Los Angeles.. Lucky my flight leaves at 11:30 PM so I can sleep ( I hope ) on the plane. That is if I am not too excited to get there.. books on my Kindle Fire will be handy and my daughter told me I will have the opportunity to watch 5 movies.. OMG.. Have you ever taken a trip this far? .  I will miss my husband and Buster but this is a trip of a lifetime and "a bucket list"item.... and They will be fine "holding down the fort". My mind is racing and I am trying my best to keep organized..I promise to post  while away... so come back and check in..

No. Not my front porch.. I saw this on FB from a friends site and had to post it here.. Is'nt it inviting?
Enjoy your Fall decorating and I hope you get to make a trip like this sometime too..
