Family and Friends

Crazy, Busy but relaxing days here at the ole homestead. I know that's a contradiction, but that's the only way to describe it. It's good to be here at the farm, away from everything, no TV, just a radio. No Internet or video games, just make your own fun. Lots of family have come and gone these last few days and each day it has been evening supper, just the way it used to be.
 Lots of food and organized chaos is the theme at the table. Of course Sheryl and her family is used to it, you see Sheryl is one of 6 kids, so imagine, 6 kids, parents and grand parents plus assorted other family members in this small kitchen/dining room all at once for supper! Well, now that I have experienced it, it's quite the feat!
 The house only has 4 rooms plus the bathroom. In the day, after supper the family would retire to the living room for more conversation and piano playing.
The younger generation trying their hand at old school entertainment, it was great to see.
While we were here, we met up with fellow Fulltimers and Bloggers, Ron and Elena. They just happened to be coming through this part of Kansas, so we got together for lunch in town. They are really nice folks and we sure our glad we were able to meet them. They are on there way south to AZ for the winter and we hope to meet up with them again if we are able to make back out west for the last part of this winter.
As with most places, the sunsets out here can be amazing, this one taken at the end of the farms driveway. That's it for now, all the family (except, for the couple here in town) have headed home, so peace and quiet for the next few days is the name of the game. I have to come into town for WiFi, so again it may be a couple of days for the next installment. Until then, Keep Lovin Your Life as we do ours and se ya soon.

I'll bet Sheryl has some great memories of family gatherings around that kitchen table.

We enjoyed some of the most beautiful sunsets when we were in Kansas.

Always nice to reconnect with family and have some fun. It certainly rejuvenates you.
