At times we have to choose between the path that is conventional and the path that is not. In today's world that once worn path that our great grandparents traveled is so overgrown and forgotten that it barely exists. Our goal is to reforge that forgotten path and make it new again.

Update on Rottweiler

THE ROTTIE HAS A HOME! The mother and daughter that I thought were fostering her actually adopted her.

This week the Rottweiler that visited us for a weekend is in a foster home. From what I was told, her foster-ers are dog trainers or at least are knowledgeable of dog training. For two days I thought she had a new permanent home but I think they are just fostering her and giving her some much needed manners lessons so that she will be able to find a home more easily. Sure hope somebody finds her soon. She is very sweet but has no manners! Not good for a dog that weighs 100 pounds!

Adoption Update

Just to update everyone on our adoption...there is no update! We have no news. Hopefully we get the call soon that we can go to Haiti and bring our babies home but it's not looking good for April time frame. Two families just went to get their babies this week (actually one leaves tomorrow). So the good news is that things are moving in Haiti. But too slowly for us, we are getting pretty anxious and a little downhearted. We just have to keep on truckin, right?! Or as Dori from Finding Nemo says, "just keep swimming, just keep swimming.swimming, swimming..."

First Mow of the Year and a Potato Field

Okay, so I am a little excited about mowing the lawn. I need a life, right? I haven't really gotten to mow for over three years though. Plus that means it's really spring;) When we lived in Germany we had a tiny front yard only and I used a wee little weed eater to cut it. The first time I cut it was with a scissors (that was pre-weed eater purchase obviously!). Joe had to work today with his favorite of all creatures, horses, and called me just after he left the house. He saw a sign for a garage sale in our neighborhood. Actually Joe doesn't like horses because they bite and kick, or as he puts it..."they have both the ability and desire to hurt you badly". Or maybe he said "kill you". I digress...so I headed out to see what the garage sale was all about. Of all things, they had a free lawnmower! Exactly what I needed! It needs a few pins to hold the handle on the body securely but big fat hairy deal, I can do that! Our lawn was on the verge of looking like a jungle. While I was having the time of my life mowing, Joe was hard at work digging up a spot for iris in our front yard and potatoes in the back. The heavy (and rain drenched) clay didn't make his job very easy. I wonder how many blisters he has now? We shouldn't have a hard time finding chives to have with our baked potatoes...our yard abounds in chives. Achew!
