David is back from Afghanistan. People have been telling me I smile a lot now. 🙂
We’ve settled into a cozy routine here on the homestead. He’s accomplished more in 3 weeks than I did in a year. Unfortunately, he came home with a fractured vertebra in his back, but he’s still able to work harder than most. He’s been busy cutting trees and grubbing out the stumps to open up more usable land along with the little things like changing the oil in the truck and fixing Oran’s BB gun. Wednesday he and granddaughter Lianna went and picked up a Ford 8N tractor. Oran promptly named it ‘Mater. Lord willing, we’ll be building a new barn and new outhouse and adding on to the cabin within the next year. The wild grapes have ripened and we put up 8 jars of grape syrup. Next up are the persimmons. I’m so happy to have someone to cook for again!
I hope to have pictures up soon and I want to thank all my readers who have supported me and helped keep my spirits uplifted while David was away.
Bless you all,
