Just Checking In

Hi everyone!

This is has been one crazy busy summer so far! I don’t know if I am coming or going or where I was! LOL

I have posted so little here and I miss it!

These days I am constantly feeling behind. No matter what I do, it feels like I need to be doing 3 other things at the same time. And I shouldn’t whine about it, I am very blessed to be doing something I love and feel passionate about.

Do you feel that way? Being pulled in so many directions at once? It can get so overwhelming!

I am slowing accepting the fact that some things need to be put on the back burner. Even thought I am not very good at doing that! LOL I’m trying though.


One of the areas that has totally been neglected is any kind of home decorating. I love changing up things around the house but, reality dictates that just isn’t a top priority at this point. When farming is your business and livelihood, it demands all of your attention throughout this time of the year. And let’s face it, decorating my home is just not that important right now.

So, things are just staying the same. No fun new additions here and there.


If I am being honest, just keeping the house relatively cleaned or picked up on a daily basis is a struggle! Troy and I have both said that sometimes we wish we just had out travel trailer at the farm and lived there throughout the season. LOL


And it isn’t going to let up any time soon. I am hoping to have time to do some fun Halloween décor in October but, I‘m not holding my breath! LOL

I feel bad not visiting with all of you or posting more here at TTG. I miss my online friends! I miss not seeing what’s new in your lives or the fun things you are doing.


I have to admit, I would probably be dealing with that oh so nasty green eyed monster if I visited more blogs. Seeing all the pretty decor redos or crafty things you all are doing or wonderfully organized clean homes.

I just thought I would check in and let you all know I am still here!

Thank you for stopping by and I hope you are having a wonderful day!!


  1. Love that fruit pitcher. Really sweet.

  2. It's such a busy time for you but I'm glad you post on FB, I feel like we connect daily! I've dropped the ball on blogging so much with all the changes in my life also. I think I'm finally getting back into it but slowly! Just take care and blog when you can. DECORATE you say??? What's that? hugs!!!

  3. Hi Diann....I feel exactly like you do. Too much to do, not enough time. The summer seems to be racing by but I am really trying to savor some of the moments.

    Mornings have felt even a little nippy. "OH NO," I said. "Not fall already." No no no no no

    I can only imagine that summer is your very busiest time. You will have time to decorate during the colder weather, when you are all snuggled in your house. Susan

  4. Oh my friend I know what you mean by being pulled in so many directions right now in life. It is too my season to have so much extra on my plate! One day at a time is what I keep reminding myself. Good to see you post today! Hugs and blessings, Cindy

  5. Your online friends will be here for you whenever you come back, no worries!
