My grandson Morgan and I decided we would try to fly the kite one more time. We tried on Saturday but everytime we got out to start it would come a rain shower. Today was a cool day and just windy enough to get her off to a good start. We flew it for about 20 minutes before she fell or maybe I should say landed. She just came down in the driveway behind the car and away from all the power lines and trees. This was the first time I've flown a kite in many years, also Morgans' first time. I had forgot how much work it is to get one going. I guess I'm just getting old.
Got her up nearly 150' in the air. When she got past the hard wind down low she flew so smooth. I guess you could say she had wind beneath her wings.
I live in Alabama with my husband, 2 cats,3 dogs and a tank full of fish. We've been married 11 wonderful years. We have 3 grown children between us and 5 grandchildren. We live a simple life. We love going camping when we have the time. I love crafting, making cards using rubber stamps and the Cricut Expression, scrapbooking, yard sales and collecting things. I worked for a local newspaper until the end of October,2009 when I lost my job. I had been there for almost 41 years. So now what do you do, you either start over somewhere else or just retire and I choose to try the retired route. I'm sure it will be fun not having to go to work everyday with all the stress. This will be my first summer at home in a long time but I'm sure I can find plenty to do. We are both christians and attend a wonderful church.We put God first and everything else just falls into place. We are truly blessed.
