Oh, Well!!

Oh, well-no pics today! So very much has been going on in our lives-I do believe we are meeting ourselves coming and going!!
Jeff's dad seemed to take a turn for the worse this weekend-running fever-won't eat-not responding to anyone. It is just so hard for everyone to see him like this! He has always been SO full of life and laughter! He has said several times in his sleep that he is seeing angels-so we really don't know what to expect. I was telling Randy yesterday how much as a child I loved to listen to him pray-he was like a completely different person when he talked to God-such good memories!! But thank you Lord-he has turned around again and is feeling better today-talking and eating again!!
Mom isn't feeling well, either-just don't know what to do with her! I know she would like for me to be with her all the time-but I just can't and she is more than capable of taking care of things herself-she just won't!!
Jeff and I bought 4 new hens and a rooster on Saturday morning-the hens aren't laying-YET-they are sex-links and an auracauna rooster-yes-I got another one! I can't help it-they are my favs! The bitties he picked up nearly 2 weeks ago are growing like crazy! Oh-and Jeff got a picture of the coon on his game camera-so we at least know what we are up against! He also set another incubator up with 32 quail eggs-so we'll see how these hatch this time!
It's raining!!! YEAH!!!! It is SO dry-we had a few cool mornings last week-but the temps are still way up in the 90"s-I am SO ready for Fall!
Our best friends-Sheila and Alfred are the proud new grandparents of a baby girl! Leah had her on friday-we've not been able yet to see her in person-but the pics have just been precious beyond words!!
We threw Jeff's mom a surprise birthday party on Saturday afternoon-she was so happy!! We just did finger foods and Tracy made her a beautiful cake! Everyone enjoyed the visit-even if Curtis was out of it the whole time-we still talked and included him in the whole thing!
Yesterday was the retirement party for Bro Thom and Mrs. Dorothy at Church. It was very special and was enjoyed by all! Darryl said he counted 145 people that stayed for lunch-and SO much food!! He will surely be missed and we all wish him the best of luck and health! I got locked inside the old fellowship hall while I was getting my Sunday School Classroom ready for next week! I finally found my way out of the dark-after running into something in the hall-I now have a huge purple bruise on my leg!! I really didn't know how I was gonna get out if I couldn't unlock the door from the inside!! Leave it to me!
Mom just called-she has fallen again-but says she's ok-for now-But she is thinking she has Lupus now-someone mentioned it to her-so I don't know!
The guys have been working so hard to finish painting the house-I'll get a pic of it posted as soon as I can-I can now say I do live in a barn-maybe that's why I can't get the kids to shut the door behind them! Have a great week!!
