I apologize for not posting to this site in several weeks. The holidays came and went. That was a busy time. The bad weather we have had locally depressed me somewhat (to the extent that I just did not want to do anything much)AND, we have been in the process of buying a house and MOVING. Oh my gosh! What a task! We only moved a few blocks from where we have lived for the past 12 years, but it has been a major project. We finally have changed houses. We moved in last Thursday. Our new address wil be 502 Mill Street, Madisonville. I say it "will be", because until warmer weather allows me to get a mailbox in place, I do not plan to change our mailing address at the post office. We are still living out of boxes, but at least the major work is done. I will try to get back to posting to the blog more in the next few weeks. Thanks for understanding. I have posted a picture of the new place for you to see. We like it. We have 6.7 acres, still in town, but with a country feel. Lydia is excited. Actually, we all three are. We have plans for a garden, a small orchard and whatever else Svitlana can dream up to plant and/or grow. If you are ever in the area, stop in and say hello.
