As usual the days seem to fly by when I am home in Arkansas. We spent a lazy morning before heading over to Hot Springs with all the rest of the Christmas shoppers to exchange some clothing for my Mom. To Sandie and others who remember Mom’s accident this past summer—she is doing well. Her shoulder is healed as is her forehead laceration. She is having some issues with her back—probably the accident aggravated old injuries and her doctor is doing some tests.
Michael and Emmi held down the fort visiting with Danny (my BIL) and with Ross (my brother). I’m not sure he accomplished much else and that is strictly OK!
My niece Niki and her husband Eric have two daughters, Elizabeth and Leah. Elizabeth is 12 years old and accompanied us to Hot Springs—oh, my—been awhile since I’ve been around a 12 year old! They are both beautiful girls and fun (at times ). Elizabeth is a good teacher—she taught me some things about my iPhone I didn’t know!
Our family calls this farm Barnes-Hill. Our family name is Barnes and my sister married into the Hill family, thus Barnes-Hill. The land belonged to my paternal Grandfather and passed on to my brother Ross. My entire immediate family lives within about a mile radius—around the corners and through the woods!
I will try to remember to take some photos tomorrow, it’s to be a sunny, nice day!
