5 on Friday is Back!

Week:  8/28 - 9/3/16

My week in 5 on Friday "diary" form:

I went up to Carter, WI (near the reservation my dad grew up on) to a pow-wow with Josh and Justine.  I had a hard time holding back the tears when I heard the singing and drumming.  

Popplewood 4-H Summer Fun Activity - "Popplewood Olympics" we had almost every family attend.  We have a young group of kids and siblings, it was nice to see the older kids "playing" along!  Thanks Monica and Tristin for planning the event.

I am the "crazy chicken lady" - I have so so so many chicks...I don't know what I was thinking letting all those hens set!  Last night in church, someone commented on the egg salad I made.."do you have any eggs for sale?"  I said..."well, not really, I do have lots of chicks for sale!"  Al quickly said..."those chicks are her babies" - he is right.  I love baby animals!  This may be residual effects of our empty nest!

While cleaning out some boxes from an old estate I bought out, I found these feathers.  I reconnected with heritage from attending the pow-wow I guess.  I am 1/4 Potawatomi.

From that same estate stuff, I found this framed sampler.  I brought it in the house, took a picture of it to sell it, but Al saw it and liked it, so I guess now we are keeping it.  Being content is a blessing!  

I hope you find contentment in your home and life this next week. 

Blessings from Ringle, Wisconsin.
