Well, it's been raining and the creek is up. We've had rain for the last several days and more expected for next week. I guess April showers arrived early!
No big happenings this month. We are still working on the chapel inside. It's too early to start landscaping (especially with the rain), so we continue to wait until the days get a little warmer and dryer.
Gary Hansen, an old acquaintance from DePauw, emailed me out of the blue. He is an attorney in St. Louis with a second home in Wisconsin. He goes right by the Land as he travels up I-39. After a bit of back and forth, we ended up going to lunch two days ago. It was fun to reminisce about the old DePauw days at Speech Hall and theatre and some of the former friends we knew. Who would have thought after 48 years that someone could pop up like that? But it was a fun afternoon, and we may see each on and off as time permits. Just nice to know there is another friend out there - especially after almost a half of a century has gone by!
The big news in the triplet's life is Chloe lost one of her lower front teeth (!) and Papa is visiting them for a couple of weeks. They have been looking forward to Papa's visit! The pictures of the triplets below show Chloe and Jack during The Cat in the Hat project at school, Chloe with her missing tooth, and Katie riding on "Grammie's truck." I miss these kids!
I decided to take some inside pictures of my little cottage because I haven't done so in a long time. It still is as sweet of a cottage as there could ever be! I am so fortunate! It deserves it's own Pinterest file!
The rains have swollen the creeks. I took a few pictures of the (usually) low-running Willow Creek next to the chapel and you can see it is up quite a bit. Luckily not near flood stage!
Gordon and Gordeeta are back . Actually it is not Gordon and Gordeeta - I think they may have gone to the Goose Heaven in the Sky by now. This could be their off-spring. They are slowly getting used to me, but they still chatter when I come out the door. The real Gordon and Gordeeta never said a peep because they knew me so well. Ah...time marches on...
Enjoy the pictures of the land, and especially my dear little grandchildren!
Tomorrow is April 1st! April Fool's Day! Enjoy the day, dear Reader, and may it stop raining in the Midwest!
