Catch up.

Hi, well everything went well yesterday with my hubby's surgery. He was in a little long then I expected, I hated waiting it was the longest 4 hours of my life. I decided to stay in town as it was raining and dark out and didn't want to take the chance of driving home that late.
Any way the other day I took some photos of some flowers I picked out of my garden they are so pretty.
I also started making some yo yo flowers for a headband I'm making for my youngest Maddy, this is the first time I have made them.
Better go and have tea, catch you later.

Life on the farm

Well today started out very interesting. One of the water pipes that goes down to the shed sprung a leak a big one at that, and we had not very much water pressure in the house so we kinda fixed that only what we could by hand, now no water is going down to the chemical shed to fill the spray rig up, but that's alright because we've had rain so they can't get on the ground anyway.
I've been taking some more photos of my girls.
and our kittys they are getting so big. Catch ya later.
