Wow it has been a long time since I posted to my blog. Not sure anyone is still looking. Life has been ever changing and not always what we want. Losing Tom after 55 years has been an adjustment that is the hardest thing I have ever had in my life. I continue on doing everyday things that are necessary. It has only been in the last month that I really WANT to do anything. Unfortunately I twisted my back/leg and can't do the things outside I need to do. Hiring people to do those things has been a challenge. I get someone then they find another more permeant job and I have to search again. I am grateful for those that have helped me out and glad for them but at 72 I can not do all I want to do. My 4 legged children keep me going each day. I enjoy my flowers and spend way to much time on the computer. So go my days. Pray good things for you all. j

So much going on there seems to be no tie to blog. The work on the area between the garage and the shop is cleaned out. The block is laid.Makes a nice walkway. I am adding pots of flowers. it will be an ongoing project. All the flowers are planted for the patios, deck and yard. I am still looking for someone to take away the dirt in the old veg.garden spot. Still have the garden shed to clean out. Hosta garden needs a good wack. So much to do. Today the weather is perfect to work outside. I better get back to it.I will post pictures when I get more done.j

It seem time goes by so much faster than it used to. I know it really does not.Maybe because I am older and things take me longer to do,not sure. I started decorating right after Thanksgiving. I am still decorating. I know I know how can it take that long? Well I got into the attic for decorations I have not had out for years. Some just a few years others many years. I love to decorate for Christmas and I really go over the top. Some say out of control but I decorate for me no one else. So many memories in those things packed away in boxes and totes. First 3 pictures are from years past. Last are from this year. Just a start .The outside tree is a fake tree this year. A beautiful tree I got for $5 at a thrift store.The big nativity is on the front porch.Too big for inside. The last is the corner by the front door. I will share inside pictures soon. Take care all have a very Happy and Merry Christmas. j

Well fall is here. Most of my plants are done but the flowering cabbage is so pretty I thought I would share. I sure hope there are a few warm days in November. I would like to do the Christmas decorating outside in a bit warmer weather.
I finished a wall hanging . Jenny Dorne had a tutorial for a wall hanging that had a pumpkin cats and witches hats.I did just a pumpkin using 2 1/2 inch squares.j
