I Know I've Said it Before....

I guess I can't say it enough. We have great neighbors here at the farm. Yesterday Jim knocked on the door and offered to help us load up firewood he had waiting for us at his house & bring it over. Steve went with him & they loaded up a pickup truck full, brought it back & stacked it. They Jim offered to plow the driveway. So they went back & got his tractor and he plowed the driveway up to the barn.

Jim told us to email him whenever we are coming up & he will make sure the driveway is plowed for us. Between them & the Amish next door, we feel very fortunate. This morning before breakfast, Lavina (one of the Amish girls), brought us some cookies and visited for a while. Life is good at the farm :-)
 Steve is mudding & sanding in the bathroom again today.  It will be ready to prime & paint this coming weekend. We will be driving up on New Year's Eve & staying until Monday afternoon so that will give us plenty of time to paint & maybe put in the medicine cabinet & mirror. We also have some ceiling lights we can put in too. After all the snow we have gotten lately, it is supposed to be in the 40's and rain this Thursday & Friday. Don't think we'll be snowshoeing New Year's weekend.

I really should get busy here instead of writing...only a few hours until we head back to Illinois.

Have good "neighbor-friends" is a blessing!

It means a lot to have good neighbors! You are very fortunate. But, most country folk are friendly and more than willing to give a hand and help out. God love them all! ...debbie

I think it would be so cool to have Amish folk for neighbors. I admire them alot -- sometimes I wish... oh, heck.

Won't it be great when you and Steve can stay at the farm full-time? That will be a day of celebration. :)
