Time.... IT'S time For A Long Over Due Post!!! Shame On OLM

I have no excuse for being a bad blogger... Simply just not enough hours in some days.
I am not alone.
We all lead such busy lives...
This summer has kept me going...
It's been a balancing act between running my dad's home now... our own and helping Steven with his... Some days OLM feels like YIKES!!!
But, Steven's home is coming along nicely.  I figure his time here is coming to end soon and he will move completely in within a month or so... 

First back in July... early July Dad's first cousins and ours too, came for a visit from Ireland!  
Got dad out of the house for a couple hours for a really nice visit...
 Dad and Barry Visiting...
 Hubby and Barry
 Caren and Joey, adorable together...
 Here is from the left, Barry, Kathleen, their daughter Caren and OLM.
I shouldn't mention that was the last time the floor was seen in the OLM homestead! LOL
It's turned into a pumpkin breeding ground right now and storage warehouse for the shop!  OOPS!
 Last week, I did get away for a couple of days to met up with hubby in Oshkosh.  he was working the air show again this year.  It was only a 3 day break, but a much needed break!
So, I showed this house last year... it was for sale and in need of some much needed love...
I dreamed about this house....really dreamed about it! sigh... BUT
 I went for a visit and someone is giving it the much needed love it deserves... It's looking amazing already!!!
 Then driving around with hubby we came across this gem of a home.... OH the landscaping is amazing as is the wonderful little home.. I could easy live here too! sigh......
I made him turn around so I could get a picture or two... and yes, drove in for them...
 Not sure what this side building was used for...but again oh so adorable....
 OF COURSE, I made time for a little shopping... Visited Judy the owner of A Simpler Time, A must stop if you are in Ripon Wi!!!!  Tell Judy OLM sent you!
 No pictures of the OLM homestead, well because it looks like bomb went off in it...LOL. 
When hubby left he said "it's starting to look like the OLM warehouse in here".. I said don't' worry I will work on that while you are gone...
Sadly, if it was possible I made it worse... Creating pumpkins isn't for the neat minded I tell ya! LOL

But, a friend from face book found this gem of a little pie safe for me!  Enamel tin cups found out shopping with hubby...
 OOPS... I thought I had a before picture of Steven's front room... Must be on my phone, haven't learned how to transfer them...anyway... we started out painting... I am not great at it, and it's hard on the old back... Steven learned very quickly he much rather fix hardwood floors then paint...
So... the Hot dog man has been tapped for his expertise in painting... There was so many holes in the walls, we would of never patched them right... and well.. we would still be painting this room... Instead the hot dog man is finishing up the upstairs then all the painting is DONE! Yeah for the hot dog man, he is a life saver!! I mean back saver!!!
Next on tap is Steven and hubby working on getting new railings in... Remember they were all taken out...then carpet and I do believe my baby will be moving out....
sigh.....
 Did I ever show you this wonderful prim basket I got???  Can't remember... anyway here it is...

Poor Knuckles... even he is pooped out... He has been struggling with what I am hoping is a pulled muscle in his leg... No more Frisbee him... he doesn't know when to quit... If we don't let him run he is good.. running and playing... limping comes back... sigh... I think he's starting to show his age...I will never be able to keep him still if it comes surgery.... grrr....
THEN... Lastly for now... DID you know I am doing the Harvest at the Mill show Dawn hosts in Holly Mi????
OLM hasn't done a show since her folk art painting days.. going back almost 20 years... sigh... Nervous...to say the least, BUT so excited!!!  Anyone going?  I am going to be there! Stop and say hi!  
Saturday, Sept. 6th!
Then... lastly... I never do this... I won't go into it.. but Steven's best friend sure could use some extra prayers right now... sigh... my heart is very heavy with this struggle....
