Saturday Night

I had such an awesome weekend. Friday night was dinner with family in Elmira at a fabulous restaurant. Saturday night was a visit to the farm, and hanging out with people that are my family by choice.
KK and J had other plans, and TMOC decided to stay home, so Hubby, KC and I went out to the farm with Jethro and Heidi. We got to spend time with The Boy and The Girl, Heidi's parents, and Heidi's sister. Heidi's mom, Sally, is so wonderful, and down to earth. She welcomes everyone into her home like they're family. She makes you feel instantly at ease.
KC got achance to ride a horse, and I got a chance to catch up with some old friends. I seldom get a chance to hang with Jethro ( who has known me since I was 10 ) or Heidi's family.
Going to the farm is like catching your breath for a few hours. I can't explain it. It's like a safe place. There is no other place on earth where you can feel so relaxed, so content, so welcome.
We had a great dinner ( no bbq for us 2 nights in a row ), and laughed. I can't remember the last time that I felt so good. Heidi's Dad got me caught up on the home town gossip. Lori S had a baby! Billy R won $ 50 000! Old man Sisto isn't dead! Big news. I loved every minute of it.
Heidi's sister is so sweet. She makes me miss my sister Lucky.
And the Pug. He is the reason that we got Ruby Tuesday. After we dog-sat him for a couple of days, we were hooked. That dog is love sponge.
Jethro drove us home, ( being that we are to lame to have a WORKING car ) and J and KK had a chance to visit with Uncle Jethro. TMOC had a chance to catch up, too. The night was over way too quickly, we were saying good-bye again before I knew it.
These times with the people that I love the most are always over too fast, and too far in between. I hope that Heidi and Jethro move back home. I hope that we get to spend more time with them. I hope that our next visit isn't so long in coming. I hope that nothing ever changes...the farm, my friends, my family.

It sounds like a lovely evening.

I feel fortunate to have a place like the Farm to go too! A couple actually. It is a blessing! One place has the chosen family, the other has miles and miles of wide-open spaces.

When I win the lottery(ha ha), I plan to buy an island and move everyone I want around me there...the dogs won't have to be on leashes, the kids are free to roam...sigh. When I win the lottery.

I'm so happy to share that place and those people. It was a great evening and I hope we can do it again, the whole family.

You know how much I want to get MY OWN farm, but I'll still get Sally and the Old Man and Sweetie to come over too!

I'm always afraid that I won't see you guys much more than I do now...but that's just crazy. We'd find ways. You might have to swing a pitchfork to hold a conversation with me. HAHAHAHA!

dilling- That sounds wonderful.. My sister is promising to buy me a house in Colorado...When she wins the lottery. If I had an island , it would be a lot like yours. NO leashes on dogs EVER
cd- isn't it great to have such a wonderous place to just be yourself? I love the farm!
fancyface- your photos are amazing!

I would have a house somewhere hot overlooking the ocean. That would be my idea of heaven.

Oh, Colorado is gorgeous... lived there once for a year and Michael and I tried to get back for a long time...but nobody there wanted to try and work around his visa papers, snice they hadn't really done it before...Colorado may be the one place away from water that I would want to live...incredible there, honestly....

Know how it feels, glad you had time for a breath:-)

My sister lives in Colorado, and I haven't been there yet. I can't wait.
A place near the ocean would be nice. I've never been anywhere hot, but Nova Scotia is beautiful. There's nothing like it.
ladybug- the farm is heaven! THE BEST place to catch your breath.
