It's been TOO long!!

Hello All!!!

I have been absent from here for way too long. Sorry about that. I will try to do a recap (in quick order) of what we've done the last 6 weeks.

I survived, quite well I might say, of changing my meds. I am a new person. And I love what God's made me to be now. :D I look at things so differently. Through new eyes, so to speak. I've seen things that I've never noticed before. And I couldn't have made it through without my God and my family and friends that have been praying for me. Thanks so much!!

Kevin and Hannah 'kidnapped' me and took me to WI. For 33 days!! I didn't think that I was 'ready' to go...but they had other ideas. We left on the 7th of August and I ended up sleeping 85% of the trip that first day. It was unbeliveable. They teased me the next day. Well, the next day I was a totally different person. Didn't sleep at all. It was quite the transformation.

We had a wonderful, terrific vacation. Kept busy. Hannah even worked a couple of days at the Rivers End gallery shop. Made some money. She's got jewelry selling at the Sea Hag gift shop. We went to Cornucopia Day. I volunteered at the Quilter's bake sale. We went to Game Night and besides Hannah, Kevin and I were the youngest ones there. But those 'older' people are HILLARIOUS!! We had a great time!! Went to the Village Inn and had the Friday Night Fish Fry on a number of occasions. Mmmm!! Went on a 'sunset cruise' on the boat. Just gorgeous!! Went 4-wheeling. Did a 4 mile hike on the coast of Lake Superior. Went yard-saling. Ate, ate and ate some more!! Went swimming in Lake Siskiwit. And did many more things that are too numerous to list.

The one thing that I was quite disappointed about was that I never go to go swimming in Lake Superior. It was a bit colder this year than in previous ones. :( I was so upset that it didn't work out. Well, there's always next summer!!!!

Now that we've been home for a few weeks, we've canned grape juice and applesauce from our own vines and apple trees. I love to can produce so this is right up my alley! We plan on giving some away as Christmas gifts. :)

Kevin and I will be celebrating our 29th anniversary on Monday the 29th. We plan on going away for an overnight this coming weekend. Something we've only done one other time in our life. We're really looking forward to it. ;)

I'm so sorry it's taken me so long to post here....but hopefully this will let you have a glimse of my life right now.

Have a great day!!
Hugs, Nanette :)
