January saw snow here in Kansas
HAPPY NEW YEAR!
It's hard to believe that we're
already into the new year...
is it just me or did you find the
old year flew by?
As I look back on
I realize that it was a busy year
Lilac Lane Cottage
Kisiwa Creek Ranch
January saw lots of snow and
February I had my
One Year Give-Away!
Most of the month of March
was a mess with renovations
being made to the bathroom.
What a job
but it was worth it!
April saw the return of the Lilacs.
Unfortunately it wasn't a good year for them
but we did get enough blossoms to
enjoy that wonderful heady
The Monarchs loved them too :)
May into June we spent our days
priming and painting the house.
Going from medium blue to
pale yellow was a pain!
June was the month of kittens!
We found these two out in one of
our buildings but then their
feral momma carried them
out to our burn pile
and that's where I found them.
Dora the black one found a wonderful home
and Henry is 'fixed' and living with us.
It was a terribly hot summer but we managed
to have a little tea party in the garden with
my new tea cozy I had won :)
The end of August was the time
for the annual
Heritage Days in Yoder Kansas
where the Amish mix with the
locals and have fun competing in all kinds
September took me to Ozark Missouri
with my sister in law Donna
where we had a wonderful time
October was the month of the dust storm
here at the ranch.
This was a summer of drought for sure.
My younger (by 3 months!) Sister
came to visit from Canada!
She got to experience
2 earthquakes while she was here.
was a wonderful month
of good food good company
and ended with a
couple of surprises.
Which I'll share with you soon ;)
I wish you and yours all the best for a
