Six Quirks (Only Six?)


Number One
I count stuff, like how many license plate registrations are expired and how many steps down to the shed (100).
Number Two
I like bright colored tights but hardly ever wear them, hence a drawer full if you ever need them.
Number Three
I have decided to only wear black from now on.
Number Four
I love butter on saltine crackers. When I was very much younger I would take a whole long package, butter them, stack them one on top of the other and when my mother wasn't home, I would take them upstairs and eat them ALL while I watched I Love Lucy.
Number Five
I love to polish bowling balls.
Number Six
I adore playing "Who Can Hit the Other Person With the Most Black Nibs" game with Kurt.

What are Ann's quirks? Megan's quirks? Ben's, Olivia's, oh yes, Ryan's, Katy's, Jacob's, Ashley's, Brian's, Brendon's, and Craig could you keep it to six, please?

Mary Deane Arrives!





Another miracle. Mary Deane is so tiny that once Ann got the head out the rest of the body came flying out with her! We are so grateful mother and daughter are doing well and father was a great coach and comforter through the whole event. She has big eyes and long skinny arms and legs and long fingers. Ann was amazing through the whole experience. We know Gramma Andrew is smiling on her namesake today!

Banner Day at the Shed


It was an exciting Wednesday as we had a visitor at the shed! Ann came up for some embroidery instruction. We had a nice visit. She is still cooking that baby!

Shed Sweet Shed


Here is our view from the shed.

The kitchen. Notice the bread on the table from Ruth. Even here she continues to bless our lives.

The bathroom with the water heater from China. It heats all the water in the shed only when needed. Very cool!

Where we rest our heads.

The sitting area with a view of the valley.

Ken and Mary Ann Kartchner blessed us with twenty seven days in their shed. That is what they call it although it is far from being a shed as you can see. We are grateful for their willingness to let us stay here. The view reminds us of home and all 650 square feet are perfect for the empty nesters.
