Ukrainian Village

In the summer we visited the Ukrainian Cultural Center. It is a living authentic museum!! The most interesting thing to me were the homes they built when they arrived...
They would arrive in the these homes were a quick build (approx 3 days!) They would live in them until the spring when they could build their new home!
 The pictures I took inside turned out too dark...but it did have all you needed...bed, table, cooking!
Hubby was intrigued at the quality of the building.... hmmm I wondered if he thought this was a plan for our new home:)

Morning Glory

On my walk this morning in the freshly fallen snow the park office was lit up!
With all the reno's.... I haven't gotten in the Christmas feeling so it's extra special to see the Christmas lights!!

I won't be using my little car today!! This car...or maybe the driver doesn't like driving it on any kind of snow...but tomorrow the snow will be gone and she will be good to go!
This is where we are tucked away when we aren't at our house....Ten more days and the trailer will be parked away for the winter!! Thankful for the warm evenings so we can live in it!!

Getting to the bottom of the Reno...

We were SO fortunate to have help with our Reno's ! It gave us a great seems the kids can work so much faster than us...Hubby's head was spinning he couldn't keep up with all they were doing!
We worked in the basement...the last of the painting is being done!
You can really needed to be painted!!...
The basement had some very distinct rooms....
 We will be moving in within the next two weeks !

Trip to the City

We now live in a small town and shopping is not so great...
We try to support the stores we do have ...but there are things that we have to go to the city for!
We headed out early ...
It is a bit over an hour drive...and a beautiful one!
First stop .... soon we are hoping our house reno's will be done!!

Next...we have friends in the City that we know from Yuma so we met up coffee...
A plus for the day!!
I did enjoy shopping in a few other stores.... I'm not a big shopper....but I must admit it was nice to be in stores that carried such a variety of things!!  I will definitely have to go back before Christmas!!

We returned to a little trailer.... Now back to renovating!!

How quickly things can change....

One day we were on our deck enjoying the warmth of the sun!
The next morning we woke up to this...

Three weeks ago we had lunch with long time friends.... 36 years of friendship!! The kind of friends that are always there!! I received a phone call from her....

We knew her husband hadn't be feeling well....but weren't prepared for the news....Stage 4 Pancreatic cancer. They don't know how much longer he has.....

In an instant life changes...(you just have to watch the news to realize it can happen to anyone!)

It makes you look at your life different... you realize you only have right now...we don't know if we have any more time but the moment we are in...

Time is Free....but it's Priceless
You can't own it ...but you can use it

You can't keep it... but you can spend it.
Once you've lost can never get it back.
