Just out of Curiosity...

So, am I the only one who really like the OLD blogger interface and am really bummed about them removing it soon????  Just didn't know if there was anyone else out there who preferred the old to the new (yes, I've tried the new interface and just didn't care for it as much.) But then, maybe I'm just weird.

Well, our ABC drama group had it's two performances this past weekend. Seems like forever ago, and yet it's not. I'll be sharing some pictures soon!

Other news is that I am still alive.. ;-) It feels like I've been gone for forever, which is unusual for me on here! ;-) We are rather busy with cows. Working them every night, so our social life is on hold for a bit (unless guests come over to our place.) That's OK, though. Sometimes it's nice to just hunker down and regroup as a family, especially after a super busy season.  We had the Home school convention, and then the drama performance. Whew. Just seemed super hectic.

The past weekend and this week have been/will be filled with cleaning. We moved bookshelves last weekend (not a good idea if you have drama performances those nights, but hey- I'm glad it's done!), and this week we are cleaning out/reorganizing/revamping our kitchen and pantries. We have the pantries pretty much put together so far. Then it's just the kitchen and our china cabinet. We're going to be moving things around, trying to make it look nicer and more usable. :-) Next on the list is to clean out the workshop and the barn.  I'll be having my graduation party out here at the ranch later this fall.

On that news, I'm excited to share that I am ALMOST DONE WITH SCHOOL!!! Seriously. I am all finished with science. Now I've just got some History and math. I'll be done by the end of May, early June. It will be so nice to be done!  But, I'll have my party when the weather is nicer. Even though our house is small (2 bedrooms, 1 bathroom), we have plenty of space outside! haha! So, that's nice for big parties. ;-)

Well, my 'break time' is over, so I'd best get goin'. Oops, sorry. Still in my hillbilly mode from drama! hehe!

Hope everyone is doing well!

In Christ's Service,

Whew! Sounds like you've been quite busy! May is really busy for us too, with three graduations, piano recital, Emily's birthday and just daily busyness.

I'm so glad that you are almost done with school! I really wish I could come down for your graduation!! I'm sure it will be a wonderful day of celebration. =)
Make sure to take LOTS of pictures for me. =)

I'm so excited about spring cleaning. It seems that the last couple of years we've missed this time, and it's been sorely needed for a while. Well, we've cleaned here and there, but we've missed our "clean sweep" sessions. Soooo, BACK TO WORK!!!

Love you!!

Yup. But, I think I enjoy being busy to being bored!! hehe! Wow! Y'all are super busy, too!
Oh, that definitely would have been so neat if you could come down! Well, since 1 of my friends is a photographer, Becca is a photographer, and a couple other friends will bring their cameras, I imagine I'll get lots of pictures! ;) And I'll be sure to send them to you right away. :) Love ya, friend!

Yes, that's true. Yeah, we really haven't done this in a while, have we? Well, I am so glad we're doing it now! :) Alright, I'm coming... ;) hehe! Love you!

Ahhhh...spring cleaning. We've been pretty busy, too, lately, what with clearing trees. The play was great, I'm so glad we made it! I'm so happy for you about finishing school soon--that's terrific! Your party will be delightful, I'm sure. : ) My condolences on the cleaning and God bless your day!

Love ya, Petra

Yeah, I'm bummed too about the new blogger thing. Takes me forever to get used to it. Anywho, sorry I haven't been commenting! I'm such a terrible blogger buddy. Have ya been good, dear? Thanks so much for leaving a comment on my blog...sounds like you're very busy! Better than being bored, though. ;)
Love in Christ,

Howdy Petra! Thanks for stopping by! It was wonderful getting to see you at drama. :) So glad y'all could make it. Hehe! Yes the condolences are accepted. ;) haha!

Yup. Sure wish they wouldn't change it!! It looks too 'techy' to me.. hehe. ;)
Oh that's fine. :) I haven't been much of a blogger lately, either, so we're even. ;) Yes, I've been doing fine. God's been good to me and taught me lots. :) Hope you are doing well! And thanks for commenting!
