Happy Days

This is one of the pictures Landen took of Florida.  I don’t see anything like this here but each has it’s own beauty.  I love to spice up my bog with pictures from Landen.

Joe arrived this afternoon about 1:30 and it made our day.  Everyone was thrilled to see him.  He came in by bus because he could not come by car because he didn’t have the right kind of tires or chains.  He tried to come yesterday by train but that was all booked and no planes were flying into here.  The bus ride was wild but he made it and he has already booked his trip by train for Christmas.  He did not want to take a chance on missing out on a family Christmas so just plans on coming on the train and then it is “Let it Snow” if that is what mother nature want.   We will go out tomorrow and do a little Christmas shopping but I don’t know what  anyone wants so I guess it all be gift cards all around.

Our new book arrived to day.  Luke loved the “chose your own adventure” book so I ordered a couple new ones and one of them of them was “Greek Mythology’s twelve Labors of Hercules” .  Yesterday before Luke knew what  had ordered the books he said he would like to learn about mythology. So today when the book came Luke just couldn’t wait to read the first adventure in the story.   Each day we will read another adventure until he completes all 12 Labors.  And then we can look up books about other mythical figures in History.

Here is another picture from Landen.  Remember the spider web I showed you yesterday, Well here are a couple more in that series.

Have a great night.  I’ll talk to you tomorrow.


About Carol (Ouma) Petts

I am a retired teacher. I have taught all levels from kindergarten through college and have been retired now for over 20 years. The last ten years we have lived on a farm and lived off the land, growing our own food and canning for our extended family. Now we have sold the farm and are moving to Florida to truly retire. I guess I have always had a short attention span as this is our 11th move. We have moved from a small farm in New Hampshire, to more city type living, small business adventures, focusing more on traveling, Florida living, Georgia, and Tennessee farming and now back to Florida. My blog is a way to keep my children up to date on what I am doing and letting them know I am still alive and well. My children are spread across the country from New England to Florida, Nova Scotia to New Mexico and CA and several places between, They let me know what they are up to by commenting on my blog but they are so busy with their own lives most times I have to assume " no news is good news". Now I are starting on a new adventure so will try to give daily updates until we get settled into a routine. Then I know even if I am getting older and should settle down I will start looking for some new and exciting adventure to start. Welcome aboard. Norman died Oct 30, 2017 so I am continuing the journey alone with the aid of my children, grand children and great grand children. At present I am living with my daughter and we are 7 in one house and cover four generations. We range in age from 7 to 85 and are finding common ground, we are living proof that multi generations can live and function in a three bedroom house if they really want to. Soon my grandson will have his house built next door so we all will have a room of their own except for the seven year old twins who by choice will share a room.
