HELLO Monday...........



These Mondays roll around ever so quickly. Not sure it's that time is flying or that's what happens as we age.  Could be a little of both. ~chuckle~  Happy Monday and here's some HELLO's.........

HELLO Poppa time...........The Princess and I went out to where our new house is being built one afternoon last week.  Poppa was out there and he decided it would be fun for them to go and feed the fish.  Yes, he has a fish feeder near the pond (right behind our new house) and it is set on a timer.  When the food is thrown out those fish all come running.  It is so neat to watch them and even more fun to catch them.  I do believe it will be a fun past time for all of us once we live out there.  Right now it has to be "bank fishing" but we hope to have a dock at some point after getting moved.

HELLO good read........I have just read the above book, Even in the Valley, and it is the second book by a lovely young lady in our town, Debbie Wilson.  Debbie first authored, Scent of Justice, a book about how she solved the mystery surrounding the death of her sister 20 years earlier.  In her latest book, she tells of her journey from cancer to hope and ultimate healing.  Debbie's strong faith in the Lord is evident throughout both books and her sweet spirit is testimony to His miracles in her life. I highly recommend  "Even in the Valley" and it can be ordered from Amazon. And, I think any book is more enjoyable when you know the author.  And, while I do not know Debbie personally, I have known of her strong faith and sweet spirit for many, many years.  I urge you to order her book* and I promise you will be blessed.
*Locals, I believe that you can get a copy of Debbie's book by contacting her directly if you would rather do that.

HELLO fishy fish..........Our daughter and family live just "spitting distance" from a wonderful pond that is full of fish and they go fishing quite often.  Saturday they spent almost the entire day fishing and just about every time they dropped a line, they caught a fish.  Guess what they had for dinner, yep, that's right, good ole fried fish. Bridget has even worked up the courage to bait her own hook and take her own fish off the hook.  At 35 years old, she is really getting brave and I know her husband is so glad. ~smile~

HELLO house progress.....The trusses and rafters went up last week and that makes it look even more like a house.  We will be making the brick and shingle selection this week.  We've sort of found what we want, so hopefully it won't be too difficult.  Brick choice is a huge decision as it covers the entire house.  We will have a little stucco on the front but for the most part, the entire house will be brick.  Stay tuned...........

  6. We have said for years that we would love to have an all-brick house. You don't find many of them in Colorado, and certainly not brand new ones. Your house is really taking shape and looks very promising!

    Regarding the fish, who cleans them? (smile)
