To up-date you all.....I was able to transfer to WITC in Rice Lake, WI. School started August 21st and at first it was fine....but it didn't take too long to realize that things were done very different there and I would have a daily struggle trying to figure it all out. I am finally settling in after 8 weeks and am starting to understand the flow there. It's not the teachers fault or the schools......it's just that I learned the Milady curriculum and they teach pivot point there which is a bit different, and they use a different color line also then what I learned at Mid-State. But I am so thankful that I was able to transfer, otherwise, I would be in Rapids right now instead of being home in my beautiful new home with my wonderful husband every night.....so, I am grateful....but very STRETCHED!!!!
But on a happier note, I am hoping that it will make me a better stylist right out of school because, any salon I work in will not have the comforts of school and I will be learning new things everyday. So I feel this will give me an edge in the scheme of things.
Well, hopefully I will keep up with the posts....they may not be long, but somethings better then nothing......... right. I want to also say that I miss sewing so much and hope to be at my sewing machine creating soon and have creations to share with you all:)
God bless and stay tuned:)

First off, I have and update.....we changed the name of our dog. Brent told me on Saturday that he was having a hard time calling her Nettie and that he liked the name Annabelle. So.......I was not crazy about the name Annabelle, and he was not fond of the name Nettie....we compromised with each other and named her a name we both liked which was "Klara". So her name is now Klara and she seems to respond to it already:) and besides it goes really nice with her brothers name which is Karl......Klara and Karl so cute I think. I will have to say that it is kinda confusing because my daughter's name is Kara...so we have Kara, Klara and Karl now...what a tongue twister.
The chickens will be 2 weeks old on Thursday and they are getting so big. They are losing their fluff ball look and growing real feathers on their wings and their tails. I am starting to ween them off their heat light during the day and they seems to be doing fine with that. The reason for that could also be because it has been 90 to 95 here during the day so who needs a heat light right....but anyway, I think this weekend we are going to put them in the chicken coop which will be good because I would really like to have my garage back so I can set up my tables for the garage sale which I am planning to have August 5th, and 6th.
We stopped over at my daughter's tonight....we bought her dog Karl (who is also Klara's full brother) a swimming pool to cool off in during these hot days we have been having here lately. We bought Klara a pool also and she LOVES it. It is so funny to watch them play and drink from their pools....the little things in life make them so happy.
At night she sleeps in the house in a large kennel which we put in our laundry room. She is starting to learn her boundaries but we have a LONG way to go with her on that. She is so big, sometimes we forget that she is still a puppy. Anyway, after supper, we let her out of her outside kennel, played with her in the yard for about an hour. Then brought her in the house and put her to bed in her own little space in the laundry room and she is sleeping like a baby as I type...what a good girl we have:)
Well, that's it for now....hope all is well with all my blog buddies....until next time.....God Bless, Rhonda

We have been plugging away here trying to get our yard finished and also the house organized. It has been a slow process as far as the unpacking and setting up the garage sale, but it is slowly happening.
I do have some exciting news, last week we added to our family.....25 Road Island chickens and a 5 month old 60 pd female Bloodhound pup. We named our puppy Nettie and she is a complete sweetheart. We named her after my favorite client at school, (I have a picture of her and I together in my last post) she is 94 years old and the sweetest lady you will ever meet. Brent has wanted a bloodhound for years and on Sunday he finally got his wish. My daughter Kara and her husband also bought one of the puppies......they bought a male and they named him Karl. He is a bit busier then Nettie or should I say A LOT busier....but Kara and Trav are handling it wonderfully and they love him very much. He even sleeps with them in their bed, I don't know how they all fit......uh youth is all I can say to that:) Nettie on the other hand, sleeps in her kennel in our laundry room. I have been dog-sitting during the day for Carl while they are at work so Nettie has had company during the day. They play and sleep all day in the kennel outside. That kennel is a blessing seeing that I will not let the dogs run through my house like wild animals. I told Brent, and he agrees, we worked way too hard on our house to let a dog ruin it. So, we are working on setting boundaries and learning manners. She is a very smart dog and seems to be a fast learner.
And here are our 25 feathered friends, I have 21 hens and 4 roosters. They are growing so fast....I got them last Thursday, they were a day old. And today they are 6 days old and are already getting tail feathers. They are in a box under a heat light in our garage, but will be put out if the chicken coop soon. Can't wait to start gathering my eggs someday:)
Cute little chickies
Here they are growing like weeds....they are so fun!!!!
All these new adventures are filling our new homestead with love and happy memories and I am looking forward to many more to come!!! I LOVE being HOME!!!!
I am hoping to get my sewing room set up soon so I can start sewing up a storm.....I MISS SEWING SO MUCH!!!! Still waiting to hear about what is going on with my transferring to Rice Lake so I can finish up school....will keep you all posted on that.
Well, better get going so I can get something done today before I have to go to work. Oh, I don't know if I have mentioned that....I am waitressing at a bar/restaurant called "What The Heck". We have been very busy and I pretty run my butt off at work......oh well, the money is good. My daughter, Alyssa, works there too so I get to spend time with her at home here and at work which I LOVE!!!!!
