WOW..such a change in the weather.

Here's Ben happy as a lark sitting in his car seat... picture a little blurry.. it was my phone camera. We are going to his house to play games...
Rain, Rain, Rain...yesterday another inch of rain and today it's cloudy with the look of rain again. It's 54 degrees ~ so all is right with the fall forcast.. 4 inches of rain in one week..

Ben came over last night and was as mad as a wet hen...The renter of our farm combined the back field behind our house with out Ben.. He kept say'ing "Put the corn back up".. Being 3 1/2 he has no understanding on how it really is with the corn.. Once it's harvested ~ it's gone. Poor guy, he was having a really hard time. He got to ride on the combine in the other field and was looking forward to doing the field behind the house. I told him next time he comes, we will call and see where they are combining and he could get another ride.. He was still out of sorts,,
"put the corn back up"...

Husband must of gotten up on the wrong side of bed this morning.. WOW~! He is having a lot of issues this morning with the weather and how things are going in the house. The wall phone (land line) broke and not working correctly in it's ringing into the house.. I told him I called the phone Co. to have them come out and take a look. I would really rather get rid of our landline and just use our cell phones.. But he says the cell phone is too hard for him to hold.. Do they make BIG cell phones? Going to town this morning and see if I can buy another wall/message phone.. I bought one through Amazon,com and Yikes it came yesterday... The receiver won't stay on the wall phone. So have to send it back today..

Had a good time with Ben last night ~ took him to his house after supper and we played two games.. Cootie , which he loved and a board game ~ Hi Ho cherry-o~!.. We played several games and he was so happy. He won them all.. He was high fying and dancing all around the kitchen.. When it was time for a healthy snack ~ I got out the child's knife I bought from Pampered Chef and we cut up carrots, grapes, bananas and cheese.. He loved that~! Thanks to pampered chef Ben can do it himself with cutting up things. HE is in that mood with everything. "I do it myself".. PLUS he has just started with the question "Why" .. Last night his question was "Why does God make it rain">>>> didn't matter what I answered it was always "Why"... I knew this stage was coming because I experienced this with raising my 4 children.. So now we are in the "Why " stage... Can you just say 'Because I said SO">>>>> He will be with his Dad tonight until next Wednesday.. and then I'll see him again.

Going to Kalona with my friend this morning after shopping for a wall / message phone. She wants to go and buy some spices and other things while there.. I'm just going there for the ride.

IT's a amish/minnonite community.. I like to go and look at all the quiilt shops..

Have a great Friday everyone... Ta Ta For Now...

What a coincidence! I'm having trouble with one of our handsets in the house...it's just plain old dead!
Like, why? how? what? Just dead! And tons of static on our line. Anyway, about Ben & the corn. They are too cute...:)JP

Mom usually you have to turn the little piece of plastic around to hold up the phone when you hang it on the wall. Look by where the receiver hangs on the phone and there should be a little rectangle plastic piece that you slip out and then put in upside down. give it a try. Ben is toooooooo Cute.
