Busy and difficult. We are in the midst of making some difficult decisions about a loved one’s care and it’s taking all the time we have. Life is not only busy at times but very hard!
Since we’ve been home from our little RV/ATV adventure we have been on the go. Last Saturday we unpacked the truck camper and took the camper off the truck. Sunday the Cowboy worked on the equipment he would need for the coming week and I puttered–made a huge batch of chicken enchiladas–YUM!
Monday the Cowboy headed to Lonn’s–they are adding an addition to Katie and Michael’s home on the ranch–Grandpa was the chief “digger.” The Cowboy went to Lonn’s every day this week–big project!
I’ve spent many hours on the road this week–I’ve been to town and towns beyond town every day this week to research nursing home/long term care options. My car could probably drive the Boulder Road without me these days!
Friday afternoon the Cowboy came home early and we once again drove to Big Timber (second trip for me). We had some bank business to do and it was the inaugural Friday evening farmers market for our community. Vendors, fresh veggies, plants, baked goods, music and food. Lots of people attended this first time event and it was fun to see friends and neighbors!
The Cowboy was cooking Friday evening (as in he was taking me out to dinner!) and we knew Lonn and the gang were also in town. We joined the rest of the family at the Grand–one of my most favorite places to eat–and had a wonderful evening! Six adults and three munchkins–there was the potential for chaos but all went well and we even ate in the fancy dining room! Laci and Lora are home from Germany and this was the first time we had seen them. The Cowboy’s great uncles owned the Grand Hotel back in the late 1800’s, losing the hotel by betting it on a horse race!
Today–Saturday–the Cowboy worked on our cattle guards–some of the rails were bent and needed welding. I sprayed two tanks of weed spray and I’m done, finished, will do no more spraying of weeds this season!
And that is life here in Montana this week–
