Well Hi There!

It's me - Allison!
I certainly hadn't planned this tad-over-a-month blogging break! Whoops. But, I will get to that more in a second! So, how are you? What's new? I have lots of blog catching up to do!

Here's what's happened in my neck of the woods lately!

1. Lots and Lots of Harvesting!

2. A great Annual Fourth on the Farm Party :)

3. A little boy I know is growing like a weed!

4. Pickling courtsey of Hubby!!

5. We FINALLY have an egg -- well, let me say, we finally have ONE chicken out of SIX whose decided to start laying!!

6. More Harvesting

7. An absolute AWESOME onion harvest for us this year! Hubby has since braided them all up after they dried out and has moved them down into his new, makeshift root cellar under the basement stairs!

8. And....we got some news we'll be adding to the family come February. So, the main reason for my extended abscence is that I have been feeling like a walking hangover 24/7 for the last month or so! Hopefully that will go away soon!

First, so glad you're back and secondly, WOW! congratulations on the upcoming addition:-D I've missed you, but the good news is that my grandson will shortly be settled into their new home and maybe I'll get to visit your lovely farm in the Fall. I'll help pick apples! XOXO

Oh Susan that is wonderful! Be sure to let me know when you are in town!! I hope I will be feeling better by then!!

Ashlee said...

Glad to see you back!!! Congrats on the soon to be new addition!!! I like Susan's idea of apple picking... There should be a "blogger day" where we all can come and dote on your pregnant belly and pick apples and talk farm stuff...

Thanks TG :) It is quite a nice idea :)
