Frustrated !!!

I am soooo frustrated with whatever is going on with my laptop !!!!  For months and months I've had trouble with links and I would have to right click, copy shortcut then paste it into my search box to follow any of your blogs.  Well this morning I was once again trying to figure out just what went wrong all those months ago and I somehow got the links to work.  Yippee! Right???  WRONG ~ I'm still having problems getting any hyperlinks on your blogs to open when I click them.  Not just in blogspot on anywhere, and I'm really getting ticked and needed to vent.  
AND as you can plainly see I'm also trying to change my background with very very little success.  When I go into the design, it won't let me change my html or add a new gadget.   I'm about to blow a gasket here!!!!!    Okay, so I needed to vent.  Thanks for letting me waste your time.

Home Again, Home Again

I've just spent the past 3 weeks visiting with my three kids and our six grand-loves.  Although we only live two and half hours away from  them, (thank God they all live within 15 miles of each other) it seems we all get busy with our own lives and it's hard to spend as much time with them on weekend visits as I like; so this time I stayed for a bit longer, loving every bit of it.  But now I'm home again, home again, jiggety jig!  Which brings to mind - do you ever wonder where certain sayings come from? Well this one comes from a  Mother Goose nursery rhyme:




To market, to market, to buy a fat pig,
Home again, home again, jiggety-jig.

To market, to market, to buy a fat hog,
Home again, home again, jiggety-jog.

To market, to market, to buy a plum bun,
Home again, home again, market is done.

Okay, so maybe I didn't go and buy a fat pig or a hog or a plum bun but I did go the the Warren's Cranberry Fest with my daughters and some of their friends and I did buy 15 pounds of cranberries. Although Warrens is a small town in Wisconsin with a population of only 300 some folks; the festival draws in over 100,000 people.  They have close to 1,000 arts and crafts vendors and over 100 food vendors.  People as far as the eye can see and lots of laughs when you take this journey with family and friends.  But oh my aching feet after walking for nearly 8 hours straight checking out the booths along the main street and tucked into the side streets along a 3 plus mile trek. 

All of my kids and grand-loves also spent some time at a corn maze, took a hay ride and enjoyed the animals at the Zoromski's Homestead Farm which is just a few miles from my oldest daughters home.  Make sure you check out the tab for the 12 acre corn maze as it is AMAZING!

Before leaving we celebrated our only Grandson's upcoming 5th birhtday with a party.  In the picture he is licking the frosting off a dinosaur's leg.  The weather was great and we all had a super fun time.

It was a wonderful three weeks spending family time and individual time with all of them ~ and now I'm counting the days until Christmas!

I had the greatest time visiting the
with all my kids and grand-loves!
                                                                                     
 Poor little Sloane was frightened when Grandma joined them on the rocker and it actually 'rocked' just a little.  It took me by surprise as well but she was not one bit  impressed.    
My grandson Sean prefered to have his picture taken with his dad. 
                                                          
 This is my oldest daughter with her four girls and her extended family of day care children.
and the corn maze!!   We only did a small portion of the 12 acre maze because some of the kids were under the age of three. Some still in strollers.
As you can tell by the smile on Sloane's face ~ we all enjoyed the animals. Lamas, chickens, baby pigs, goats, kittens, rabbits etc.
and the kids loved the Hay Maze!
Please click the link to the farm at the beginning of this post. Make sure to click the Corn Maze tab.  It blows my mind how they can do this ~ and a portion of the profits go to a good cause!
