Still Here And Still Love Blogging....Just Need More TIME!!!!!

I am sorry I have been MIA for so life has become a daily count-down/struggle to when I am officially done with Cosmetology school. Seriously......I have a daily planner and I cross off each day. December 16th is my last day and I will be officially done with school and I will be SOOOOOOOOOOO glad.

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'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, 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, enough about the boring stuff and onto the fun things going on here at our new homestead. Our bloodhound dog, Klara, is growing like a weed and from the photo above you will see that. It's so funny, she has taken over a chair I have in the garage. My plan for this chair (which I got at a thrift store last summer) is that I am going to have it recovered and I am going to use it as a desk chair. I have the fabric and everything. But, for now, she is keeping it warm for me until I can find time to take it somewhere to have it recovered. She is such a doll and we love her very much!!!!

And as you can see.....the chickens are growing like weeds too. The roosters are starting to sounds like someone is getting murdered in the coop when they crow right now, but bless their little hearts.....everyone has to start somewhere. I am hoping they get better at it soon but until now, it makes me laugh. I am also hoping the hens start laying eggs soon, farm fresh eggs will taste so good........can't wait for that and either can my kids. And as you can see, my little dumpling boy (my grandson Carson) loves the chickens, he is my little chicken buddy:)

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:)

Good to see a post from you again Rhonda - Joni said you were all kinds of busy. Your photos just tickled my happy spot - Klara in that chair and Carson with the chickens - so, so, preciously sweet! Good luck with the next two months of school - I do believe you're right - may be tough now, but will work in your favor and give you an advantage in the long haul. Smiles & Blessings ~ Robin
