OksewGlad truly enjoyed your farm story and pictures of equipment but no tractor picture; humor us please in what your were driving, so we have a better picture.
Mirabelle, we are here for you. There is a solution if you think outside the box...and make yours different and all yours and I am sure you will think of a solution or post a picture and we will all give our two cents advice.
Dublb, according to House Hunters, buildings can be changed, but location cannot. And if you knock out the part you don't like, then the pros can rebuilt it your way. Sound like you could add on to the house and make it larger, open concept with modern kitchen and island. Figure the remodel cost into the price of the property and keep within the budget. That's my two cents worth of advice to you all. Good luck, and keep the faith.
Thinking of the twins, Anael, and hoping Bram will show improvement quickly and amaze the doctors! Its wonderful how far they have come from their birth...and have grown so much!!
Garden work on a small scale today; 25 sweet Garnett Sweet potato plants, a few Italian Basil and California Wonder Green pepper plants and 7 Beefmaster tomatoes. Curley Parsley too.
You all have a good day and keep smiling. Cannot fit myself into a tub; has to be a hot shower but the old back will not let me stand very long. Joys of living soooo many years!:thumbup:
And to take a lesson from JanieW ... no books in the tub when one is sleepy! :)

Anael ... poor LilBram! Prayers for all the healing happens so he can grow stronger and bigger in all ways.
MiraB ... thankfully you caught the error, before you cut. Good plan to put it aside til you are ready to deal with it with a clear mind. That's why I often have more than one thing on the go. That is actively on the go as in WIPs ... not all the poor ol' semi-forgotten UFOs that are PhDs!!! :) Here's to a better day ahead for you ....
Instead I am headed to the beds .............. first off to get some posies and a chiro stop to tune me up ....... which no doubt I will destroy. All in the name of home owner's vanity! :D

Bev--sorry about another disappointment in the house search.
Anael--Little Bram has been through a lot in his short life. Praying for lung healing.
Karen--what a disappointment that the pattern was written wrong! Make sure you contact the company so they can fix it...maybe they have an update on their website already?? I am sure your quilt will be beautiful once you decide to get it out again.
QNS--I don't think your garden could be called "small scale" :) Once we get my window box back up on the house I will send you a couple pictures of my house. DH took it down so I could clean it out and put fresh dirt/flowers in.
QE--hope your chiro appt went well and you found the flowers you wanted. I needed to go yesterday while in town, but he is closed Thursdays.
Mirabelle...that quilt was appropriately named....Marjen of Error!:D....but they made the error. I'm sure with your experience you will figure out a way to salvage your work. Sorry for your tears....have a cup of tea and visit in our RV and we'll tell you how important you are to us.
OK....your pictures sure bring back memories. I love the smell of fresh turned dirt.
Anael....I'm also praying for Bram's lungs. It has to be very difficult to see him turn blue.
QNS....save some energy for tomorrow and the grand excursion with your BF. That will be so exciting!
QuiltE....more perennials. True there still is division every 3-5 years but it sure cuts down on heavy work. Take it easy so you don't lose your chiropractor tuneup entirely.
Dubib....sounds like house you described had a wonderful, mature acreage. Too bad the house itself didn't quite measure up.
I'll finish my MB today for ........today. I like the way it's turning out. Have to do grocery shopping too but I'm starting in the garden before it gets too hot. Have a good day, everyone!
Garden work is done. All plants are in the dirt and more. I planted pea seed all that was in the house; its late but hope we get a few peas. Two medium tires and one large tractor tire all planted or sowed I should say; thickly planted 'cause some of the seed was from last year. Lettuce and carrots will wait another day or two. Time to fix lunch.
QNS--looks like we both had good mornings.:) I have the fabric all cut and sorted for the wedding quilt blocks. Plus finished a few more propellers. I still have 7 left to sew. I cleaned up the clubhouse some too. Ready to go pick up DH for our "date" and home to sew some more.
Between all the traveling & celebrating it's taking me awhile to settle into my sewing, cutting etc...Everytime I go to do something related to my hobby I get sidetacked by DH, DS, & my gremlins...Today they are out of the house and it's time to get down to brass tacks as my mom would say...
Those are some big time pieces of equipment OK!!!! Do yo actually run them yourself ??
mirabelle, I don't think the pattern maker included a Margin of Error in her quilt design. Sorry for the frustration.
Carrie--a date how sweet. Back when our family was about the age of yours DH and I would go out after milking. Maybe run to town and wash the car or take pop cans to Wmart for redemption--that one was a bonus as it was a "paying date":D The half hour to and from town was always a time for reflection and just togetherness; a chance to get away from the responsibilities of job and family. We'd let the kids no we were going--oftentimes they were already to bed and off we'd go.
QNS I'll try and get a pic of my iron horse. And yes Honchey, I use the tillage equipment often. DH or DS does the planting--it requires more skill-you gotta drive straight. Tillage not so important. Get rid of those sewing gremlins, H.
Have the first HS graduation reception to go to tonight before chores. One tomorrow too. Guess we will miss the one in SC where DH's great niece is finishing school. That makes one feel old!
our front door: Attachment 414146Blooming Lavender. Front yard:Attachment 414147 Chhinese Wisteria... Closer up:
Attachment 414148Other wisteria blooms a bit later. Have a good evening.
Oh such a cute cat!! And lovely flowers of course :) Here my lavender doesn't show any signs of blooming yet. It's still coldddddddddd :(
I just took a pic of Bram, about 2 minutes ago. He's sound asleep as he should be :) With this blanket on his head it looks like they're sending him off to the Arctic but it gives him a sense of being safe. Tomorrow is twin time again! Can't wait!!
No pictures of Isa as there's only one camera in this room.
