Hello all - well, we made it to Don's property without a problem. We were only about 40 miles from the property and we called Dave - Don's friend that sorta oversees the property - and he met us and helped us to get settled. I don't know if we would have found it without his help. It is just down a little path - but the place is beautiful. Just out in the middle of the woods - but we have all the comforts of home (or just about) - electricity, water, and sewer. The only thing we don't have is TV - no reception because of the trees. Oh well, it just means I'll get caught up on my reading over the next few days.
I'm sorry, I did not take pictures again today - but I will tomorrow. After we got all set up we went into the Wal Mart Super Center about 20 miles away. Picked up a few things and then came home - I fixed a pot of homemade soup in the Crock Pot for dinner. It was a packet of soup that a friend down in Dowling Park had given us. It was a little spicy for me, but other than that it was pretty good.
Oh! I almost forgot - I opened a Face Book account this afternoon and I'm on Farmville now. If any of you out there want to be a "friend" please let me know - or if you want to be one of my "neighbors" on the farm let me know too. I'm just learning how all this works - Face Book and Farmville. Right now I have Strawberries, Eggplant and Wheat planted. I probably should have left some of my field's empty since I started so late in the day. Oh well, we'll see how it goes - but if anyone has any advice for me please let me know - I need all the help I can get.
I'm not sure what we are going to do tomorrow - Dan just likes to sit outside by his fire pit and look around - I'm not sure what he thinks about when he is sitting there - but he does enjoy it and that's fine. I want him to do whatever makes him happy.
Right now the plan is for us to be in Buffalo, New York next Monday and spend three days there - we'll get to see Niagara Falls and meet our friends from Dowling Park. Other than that I don't think we have any plans for around here. We are too far from Philadelphia to make a day trip down there and we are too far from New York to go there - sooooo, I guess we'll just hang around here and take it easy. Tomorrow I will balance the check book - pay the bills, and balance the "black book" to see how we did this month - with all the traveling and the purchase of the two motorcycles I am pretty sure we did not do well at all. But the truth is in the figures. I will let you know what the truth is tomorrow.
Well, I don't have anything else to report. Hope all is going well with all of you - Dana, we haven't heard from you in a while -let us know how things are - either on the blog or give us a call - we get worried when we don't hear from you. Crystal and Kim - I know you are getting ready for your trip to New York, but I hope you are getting things done in the loft also. Melissa, I'm sure you are still unpacking things in the new house - I'll be there in about a month. Carol and Betsy - I'm sure you guys are getting excited about your upcoming trip - hope you enjoy. Ruth Ann, aren't you on Face Book???? Let me know how to do things.
Okay guys - Hope to hear from you and until then - I'll talk to you tomorrow.
