Farm Fun, Life, Friends and off to work...

What a whirl wind weekend.
First we had Kristina Contes in to teach some classes.
Lots of fun and the kind of girl you can get messy with!

We had a great time at Sanner's Farm on Sunday! These 3 boys are showing it. The High Five belly smack and K is just expressing his joy with VOLUME! It was nice to relax, enjoy and observe. I am usually behind a counter helping people in the store, I am ordering, following up and making it run day in day out, and this is where I get to see most of these people when they come to shop or crop. So there usually isn't alot of time to socialize as much as we would like.
This was a great day to do that, I didn't have to wait on anyone, get anything for anyone and I could just relax. Rare for me most days.

Altho I have made it a point to get to know people better, not just as customers. I have been really developing relationships that have started at mlpa. It is nice to know that these relationships will last well beyond any four walls.

I have been thinking about what makes a friendship last, what is it that people that have been friends 10, 20 years have. It is work, but it is also honesty and communication. I have seen over the past few months how important communication is and how some people really don't do it.
I also have been looking at relationships I have and have had, I question myself sometimes what keeps some of them going, I also wonder sometimes if I think more of the relationship then the other people do. Do I think there is more there then there really is. All questions that you have to answer yourself, and hope that you have the right answers or you could be very hurt.

on another note....
I can not wait to be on the beach, in the beach house, at Lazy Suzy's eating blue crab DAILY!

Well it is time to get going and get to the store....lots of goodies coming in.

Have a wonderful day....I know there are only 3 1/2 days left of school here, and then I have a 2nd grader!


  1. trust your gut my friend, trust your gut...

  2. Hey Rollie, I think you hit it on the head when you said that lasting friendships/relationships were based on honesty and communication. I have a small circle of friends I've been close to for more than ten years. We started as gym buddies and now we just meet for lunch for once a week to solve the problems of the world. (At times with husbands/sig. others on weekends too.) If there is one thing we don't lack, it's communication. We've moved from restaurant to restaurant, looking for a place that will tolerate our four-hour lunches. No calls necessary to confirm each week and no lapses in conversation! Too bad you don't live closer to Malvern!
