I had the sudden and energetic urge to redo the entire house this morning after my second cup of coffee. After about ten minutes I regained my sanity and settled my sights on something slightly more achievable. I moved everything off the front porch/entryway, swept, and rearranged it (mostly the plants). I put a bunch … Continue reading Cookbook Cleanout
I'm pretty sure I can't actually sum up all of my projects in a single blog post. Maybe I'll just pick out some notable ones and share some photos. I only made one quilt (I think) which was for my parents' 50th anniversary. I made a handprint quilt using prints from every child, spouse, and … Continue reading 2021 Project Roundup
I've had fun this year with my camera, a Canon EOS 2000D. When we went on vacation in October (southern TN and the AL coast) I took tons of photos. I'm now just starting to move photos from my camera onto the laptop. I need a photo editing software so I can manipulate the raw … Continue reading The next step: moving photos
I am typing this on my first ever laptop. For the first time I don't have to wait my turn to sit in a noisy room with the screen height uncomfortable for my bifocaled self. Also, I don't have to type out an entire blog post on my little phone keyboard. I can type, and … Continue reading A new start!
Two weeks after the first wedding, we had another! Thank heavens the groom’s sweet (and energetic) mother, Mollie, took over the lion’s share of the planning for this one, because I was already overwhelmed with the first. In addition, it was held in his hometown so there wasn’t much on-the-ground work I could do without … Continue reading Elizabeth’s Wedding
Eleanor and A.J. were married May 16th. The weather was rainy and fairly miserable but it did stop raining that evening in time for them to leave for their honeymoon, not under an umbrella. The weather for the next several days was simply dreadful so we wound up being grateful for the weather we had! … Continue reading Eleanor’s wedding
Ok, y’all, it’s been forever and a day since I’ve posted. Let’s just say that it’s been busy (like, insanely busy) and go on as if there has been no break. I’ll start with the first wedding and make a separate post for the next one. Of course there will be some backtracking for Pascha, … Continue reading Let’s go!
Yes, it’s spring! It certainly felt that way before last week’s freeze, but we won’t get anything remotely like that again this year. We’ve had the windows open for a few days straight. It’s lovely to have all of the fresh air. Today was my planting day. I was too busy the last couple days … Continue reading Spring Planting
I haven’t blogged for a long time because it’s hard to know what to say. One must be very careful nowadays. The powers that be are out for blood and no one person is too small a target. I’ve been in the process of circling my wagons. I always had some hazy idea of what … Continue reading Pulling in, moving forward
