A Hurried Halloo!

Quick update!

I apologize for the lack of activity.  Hay Season has officially arrived!  Due to the hours spent in the fields (mowing, tedding, raking), and preparation for the upcoming week of VBS, I have had no time to prepare a post.  There is a possibility it will only get crazier in the days to come...  Hang in there for me!  

The final part of Peder's story is next!  I promise!  It was supposed to be posted last Friday, but like I said... crazy happenings.  And I feel TERRIBLE about not posting it on the day I had set for myself to do so.  A huge thank you to my readers for staying with me on this!

Another "Name" post is coming soon as well, featuring more Medieval Maiden names. 

Until then, I leave you with this...

Random.  I know.  =]  Love it!

Have a great week and Happy Memorial Day!

  1. haha love that cartoon. =D Have a great time!! :)

  2. I know how hay season is! Unfortunately, we haven't had enough rain this year for haying. Haying is so much fun, and so much hard work at the same time!

  3. Storyteller: thanks! ;D

    Piano: Yes! Unlike you, we've had a good deal of rain (sorry!). I love seeing the bright green of the fields! And yes, I love this season! I'd rather be on the Farmall raking hay than anything else =]

    Thanks for commenting, ladies!!

  4. Bwahaha! Sherlock and Batman, two of my favorite people. *giggles*

    Don't stress about updating, life gets busy. I think everyone can understand that!

To each is given a bag of tools,
A shapeless mass, and a book of rules,
And each must make, ere life is flown,
A stumbling block or a stepping stone.
