I grew up on a Minnesota farm in the 1950's. I am frugal, organized and goal orientated. My most well known skill is focused on Communication. The most important things in my life are my immediate and church family. I have a very strong work ethic. Both my boys have graduated from college now and it is time to focus more on me. Our oldest boy, Matt, married Jaimie in 2006 and received his Masters degree in 2008. Zoey, our first grand baby was 11 years old in September of 2020! Isabella, our second grand baby was 9 years old in October of 2020. Olivia, our third grand baby was 7 years old in September 2020. William Benjamin was born in January 2017 and is now almost 4 years old!!! Our youngest boy, Ben, went to heaven Christmas of 2006. He would have loved being an Uncle! We are so pleased that Will has the middle name of Benjamin. So touched that our son and daughter in law did that ...

    Thanks for the snowflakes, literally and figuratively LOL
    We got around a foot and a half of snow, and they said it came from you guys! I told my husband I was going to have to send you a thank you note.

    Have a wonderful week, my friend :)

    Love and Hugs,

    Hi Sally! I hope that your weekend was a great one!!

    My sweet husband has been healing quite well, so that is a very positive thing. It seems like I have been so busy, time is just flying by!! I have mowed the grass a second time now, and feel pretty good about the job I did. It looks nice :) The weeding of the flowerbeds and other gardening tasks get done on a separate day now. Hubbie is feeling good enough that he can now sit on the deck with the dogs so that they can cheer me on LOL!

    This week is supposed to be really hot here, we are looking forward to it. Our meal plan has us cooking supper inside today (the coolest day expected), but the rest of the week is cooking outside on the barbeque. I love it!!!! :) Almost like camping... Since we don't get to do any of that this year - we have to enjoy what we can, right?

    Have a wonderful Monday, and a great week ahead too!!!

    Sally, emoticon for the prayers and the encouragement! I'm definitely going into this with a positive attitude and with every intention of beating it. Your support means a lot to me. Karen
