Time Changes Nothing

Not much has changed since we chatted last!

My family member that is injured, remains so.

Finally, after about 2 months and a month of therapy, we got an MRI.

The results of those we still have to wait for... ugggh!

I have been such a slack when it comes to any needle work.

I finished the main part of The Spice of Life, but still have to do the border.

I'm almost done with the 2nd popcorn square (free time, take with me project) out of 20

I did complete the first part of a viking helmet.


This is one of the horns!

I still have to make the beard.

I think it will be amazing!

I have seriously fallen behind on the temperature blanket. I'm still writing down each day's temps. But have yet to finish February.

One of the reasons I have been slacking, is I've actually been working on my Thirty-One Gifts Business.

I came up with an idea, fingers crossed that it works.

Wish me Luck... I will take all I can get!

Still Wading Through

Hi, How are you?

Good I hope!

I am doing much better, my health scare was just that a scare.

Thank the Gods for that!

My family member that was hurt is still hurt. There hasn't been any improvement.

We go back to see the surgeon in a week.

Hopefully, he will want to run more tests to see what is actually going on.

We aren't liking this situation much, not at all.

Keeping fingers crossed that life will return back to our normal!!!

But until then.....

I will continue to crochet!

This is the Spice of Life, half done and keeping me warm!

It is working up very fast.

Hope to have it done this week!


And I will keep getting Chick-fil-A, whenever I can!

Such a treat! 

I absolutely love the food!


Until next time!

Its Done!

Sophie's Universe is finally done! Only took 9 months! But not to scare anyone.... It wouldn't have taken that long if I had only worked on it more often!




I will have to wait to show you a picture of it opened up... My house is to small. So I will have to wait until the ground dries and I can spread it out in the yard!

The Good and The Bad

The Good is that we start off with Therapy!

4 weeks of it!

Keeping Fingers crossed that this will heal the injury and get my loved one back on thier feet!

The Bad is now I'm having issues with my gallbladder and something else with my stomach.

Its a never ending saga.

But the show must go on, Right?

In my down time I have been working like a mad woman to finish up Sophie.
(Still not done)

Week 18 completed!


Week 19... the dreaded squares... LOL!





Week 19 and the dreaded squares is also finished and sewn on to Sophie!

I am finally on the last week, which is the border. I have 3 3/4 rows left to do and I will be able to take a finished photo. I will have to figure out where to put it to get it all into the frame. The thing is huge!

I also started the Temperature Blanket of 2016

Gone But Not Forgotten

Life as usual has taken an unexpected turn!

I'm still here and so is my family!

But one of us has been injured & we don't know to what extent.

Hopefully, we will know more in the coming weeks.

Please keep us in your prayers!

As one heals and I try to make my Thirty-One business a job instead of a hobby!

I will be back as soon as I can.

What a contrast

Mind you I didn't take any pictures because it was really just to yucky to remember in film. Yesterday, we got hit with our first winter storm. No snow for us, but we did get a nice think layer of ice. And now today its all gone! Yesterday, the street lights stayed on all day and the sun is out right now.

Still hard to believe that on Christmas day it was almost 50 and just 3 days later an ice storm.

I spent most of the day in bed yesterday under the weather. A bit of a cold and something going on with my stomach. Good thing I had made turkey noodle soup for supper the night before. That's what I ended up eating most of the day. Water and tea as I didn't want to cause any type of phlegm.

The monsters and I watched Death Becomes Her, with Goldie Hawn, Meryl Streep and Bruce Willis. I have seen it before but they hadn't. So we had a good laugh at it. Then I played with my phone and went through a seed catalog.

I'm feeling better today. My stomach is still weird, will have to make an appointment next week to see the doctor. Just want to rule out anything serious. I'm thinking the cold is on its way out as well. Thank the gods for that! I hate being sick

A Week of Limbo

This week that falls in between Christmas and the New Year always seems to be in Limbo! The hustle and bustle of the holiday is over. Gifts have been unwrapped and food eaten. The hype has died down. The New Year holds promises yet to be fullfilled! But this week....

This week is an odd one. I want to be idle because of the excitement of the last week, but I seem to have a ton of energy to get things tidied up and put away. Last night I straighten up my bedroom and was looking for other things to do. I don't know if its because the days are slowly getting longer. Or if its because I want so badly to get back to the property to get started with everything there.


My house will be put right between these trees. 16 x 20


My orchard will be placed here. 22 trees in all.


Break between the house and the orchard. We have to thin this area out, due to the giant ant mound pushing the trees over.


Sweet dreams of things to come!


Wild daisy's


Red Dogwood

Its hard not to yearn for this, as right now I'm cuddled up under an afghan and the furnace is on. So many plans, so many dreams, just waiting!
