Well it might have been a holiday for some people but not for me.   Daughter #2 came by with a project she wanted to do.  Note on the (she),  Baby blankets for my new great grandson and her first grandson.  She wanted to do recieving blankets with Rick Rack around them which I thought was a cute idea but one that I have never done before.  I must say it turned out quite cute.  Picture does not do it justice.



Also we got a visit from this little monkey and boy did she have fun.  She kept us all busy keeping her from the stairs and keeping her entertained. And when we didn't well just look.




But the good thing is she was so busy the end result was this.

She is so fun but oh so busy.  I can tell my age when she comes over and I try to keep up with her.
Well did not get any of my sewing room complete but tomorrow is Dentist day and Wednesday is dog grooming day.  So it looks like this week is pretty full.  Maybe Thursday I will keep my fingers crossed.  Well I have a treasure hunt to complete as I cannot find my mouse or my earplugs or my picker for when my back is killing me.  Little one has hidden many things, 

Talk at ya later.
Thanks for leaving comments.  I was so surpurised to see 8 people had  viewed my blog and three had left comments.  Thanks everyone.

Sunday and I hope the Lord forgives me for working so hard today.  I got to get stuff done! With my new shelves for storage it has given me a whole new method for my food storage.


I can now see what I have and rotate it accordingly.  The old storage was in the garage in a nook and I hated it.  It was dark even though I kept a light there and there were spiders and it was so hard to keep clean and rotated.  In our old home I have a whole small room with shelves all around and it was amazing.

I also baked some muffins however I will not show them cause as usual they did not turn out.  There has to be something wrong with my oven cause I can never get anything baked in it to come out correctly.  We bought it new just 6 years ago and I am about ready to go get me a new one that is of the older type.

I also got some chili ground up today that I have needing to get done for quite some time.

Oh what a busy day.  We decided that our food storage (well I did) was not really accessible manageable.  So off we went to Walmart and bought two big sets of shelves.  Now I had to make the sacrifice of giving up my sewing closet, but it is going to work so well.  I am really excited about it as now I can see everything I have and can rotate it according.  This is going to be so much better. 

I was going to take pictures but I am too tired tonight.  Yes I am sure I will sleep tonight.  So tomorrow I will take pictures and post them. 

Now I have a sewing room that is a disaster.  So tomorrow I will be in there doing a Marie Kondo declutter. 

Legs are aching tonight but I have had to myy amazment two whole days of very little pain.  Now if I can just figure out why?  I really need to start a pain journal daily with what I did and what I took.  I used to do that when I dot migrains  and then I could see if there was a pattern.  I think my migrains dropped to my legs cause now I do not get migrains just legs stiff and achy. 

I am so excited about my food storage now.  I can actually make a check off list of what I have and what I need to purchase.   Isn't that a funny thing to be exicted about? 
Well good night all.  Pictures to follow tomorrow.
It is almost 2:00 a m and I cannot sleep.  I realize that this is not what I should be doing but I have so much on my mind.  We spent the day with great grandchildren and daughter no 2 family.  It was a valentine supper and it was so nice.  I love seeing my grandchildren with their children and how they are so in love with them.  I am feeling so blessed tonight and I am sure that is why I cannot sleep.  Well that and the fact that my legs are aching.  The wind was so bad tonight I hope our shingles stayed on the roof.  Tomorrow will tell.  I have been working on baby blankets as we just heard today that we are going to get number 16 great grandchild by September.  The Lord has answered so many of my prayers I almost feel guilty.  I do so hope he is pouring out blessing on many other people. 

My sister-in-law came thru surgery and they are starting to take her off the inhubator and she is off the balloon that was helping her,  Now her husband is in the hospital.  I think all the stress just wore him out.  I prayer for her family and her every night.  I do so wish we lived closer so that we could help with the things that need to be done.  Our neices and nephew are so wonderful.  He daughter has MS and I am quite sure that all this stress has had a toll on her. 

Well that is about all I can think of tonight.  I guess I will go try and go to sleep again. 
Good night all

Well it has begun.  My hubby come from a large family and they are all getting up in years.  The oldest brother and two sisters have already passed away.  Now another sister has had a heart attack and it does not look good.  The family has been in constant prayers.  Living far away from each other is just not good.  But with so many they made their decision where to live.  We have been on a constant vigil this whole week.  Today she had surgery and we are waiting the outcome.  She is a strong sister but this is going to tale the tale. 

Snowed again yesterday.  13 inches on Friday and another 4 last night.  Hubby is out shoveling so I can make a trip to the mail to get a package off to my sister and pick up some meds. 

I did get the floors swept and beds made.  Two loads of laundry done and myself made up.  Hubby says why do I keep track and I told him it was my mental check list so i feel that I have accomplished something.

I was fearful to check my account as I went a little crazy this weekend.  I am not very good at saving.  I think I will make a no spend chart so I  can see some motivation. 

Just got news sister-in-law made it through surgery now on to a long recovery.

Today was Doctor visit to check on my knee and release me.  I am so gladd that is over.  It is still a little stiff however when the weather gets better I will get out walking and that should help.

We got some bad news last night.  Our nephew passed away from kidney failure.  He was so young.
His poor mom is devastated and also is big sister, as we all are.  Gone too soon.

Everyone has the cold congestion and I have be avoiding it.  So what happens today, I was at the church and this man comes up and needs some help.  You guessed it he was sick and coughed all over me.  Emergine C tonight for sure.

Well another day has flown the coop.  They seem to be going so fast lately which is fine but not in the spring.  We had a day out. Went to visit my sister-in-law and then did some shopping.  Just food so nothing fun.  Checked the account and was surprised to see a raise in both DH's and My SS checks this month.  Not much but every little bit helps. 
Put some bird food out on a board so I could watch them from my window.  This fellow was the only one I did not scare away.  We do not get any pretty birds here but any bird is better than none.
 My Amaryllis is beautiful.  I was so surprised when it bloomed so big. 

 Yes I have not gotten this quilt done yet.  I do not know why I cannot get excited about getting it done.  The free quilting is hard on my hands but I am determined to learn how. 
Good night to all.

Well the new Year is bringing out the declutter bug in me.  Today I just want to give everything away.
I have a garmet tool and some garmets if anyone would like them.  I have not used them in forever and I am tired of them laying around.  I have too much stuff that I will never get around to and so it is going to be someone's present.  So If any of you crafters want this just leave a comment and your  name will be put in a bowl and I will pull out the winner.  I am not doing this to get followers but if you know of someone who would benefit from this please let them know.  I will send them after I get their address.  I will be doing more give aways so stay tuned.




These are the tools and some garmets I guess that is what you call them.  


Today is another windy cold day but I have some projects to get done.  One of them is finish the baby quilt I have been quilting now before Christmas.  Yes procrastination in a bad habbit.  
This is Abby she is part shitshu and part something else  they told me bishon so I call her a beshit. 
She is 15 years old and has some problems but she is doing ok.  I keep a close watch on her just because of her age.  If she gets where I can see she is not happy and suffering I will let her go to doggy heaven.  I do not like to see them suffer. 

Well better get busy and get something done.  I do hope someone can use the tool as I do not like selling things and I would like to give it to someone who thinks they can use it.

Oh but the weather outside is chillie.  I haven't done much the last few days.  Too cold outside and for some reason my legs do not want to work.  They have never been this bad in the winter and I am hoping that it is just a passing thing.  We did get a little shopping done the other day.  I had not gotten my sister any Christmas so I got her a new set of sheets and a movie I think she will enjoy,. 

My Amaryllis is going to bloom. I am so excited I have never had one before and it is going to be fun to watch it.  Everything here has been quiet as it is most years in January.  Nancy Poloasi is Head of the house and she is going to show Mr T just what for.  It is going to be a very interesting year in politics. 

New Years went off without a blast (bomb)  LOL   and I am so glad.  I think I watch New Years in New York for just that reason to see if anyone got through security.  So glad it all went well. 

I had Mr bring up my sewing machine so that I can finish the baby quilts I have started.  Tooooo cold down stairs even with my little heater.  I will be glad when it gets even a little warmer so that I can get a small walk in to see if that helps my legs.  I am sure that it is my back that is causing all the trouble but there is not much I can do about that.  My sister is coming to visit today and I will be glad to see her.  She doesnt live only 75 miles away but we do not get to see each other very often and it is just a short visit when we do. 
Well I had better get myself busy got lots to do. 
Take care all.

Ok all the Christmas is packed away for next year.  I have even gotten some things thrown away.  My goal for this coming year is to get rid of at least two things every day.  It is so cold here it is going to be in the 20's all week and single digits at night.  Don't think I am going to be going very far this week.  I do need to go to the store and shop for something for my sister   My legs are really bad today.  I have made about 5 trips up and down the stairs and they are aching really bad and it is had to walk.  I have never been this bad.  I don't know if it is the cold or what/  I hope it gets better it is so hard to go anywhere or get anything done.  I was going to put in a picture of the dish cloths that I am making but I am to achy to go get the camera.  I will take some ibuprofen and see if I can get something more done.  We are not into celebrating the New Year we just sit home and pray that all our kids and grandkids are smart and get home safe.  Well Happy New Year to everyone.

It s cold and breezy here today and we are suppose to get a winter storm this afternoon.  Here is my front of my house with the snow that we currently have.

I do not travel out much when it is like this.  Too much traffic and roads are too dangerous.  And yes I am a chicken.  Oh Well. I had to go up town to get some gas in my car and to my surprise the gas is the lowest it has been in a while.


See those mountains in the background our community is nestled in the bottom of them and I love watching the seasons change with them.  I told my daughter I will never move cause I love being close to my mountains.  I used to think I would like to live up closer but then I couldn't see them as well.  




This is a view of our mainstreet with the mountains.  Our community used to be very small and everyone knew everyone however someone let the secret out and now it is triple in size and we have three stoplights and four schools.  We still have to travel 5 miles to go shopping at the closest store.  And if you really want to shop you have to travel 20 miles.  It is not to bad in good weather but the freeway in bad weather is what I call Russian Rulette.  I usually take the back roads but now even those are getting crowded.  There are a lot of appartment complexes going up and that is bringing in more people.  Oh well we will keep on keeping on. KOKO.  Keep safe out there everyone. 

Well it might have been a holiday for some people but not for me.   Daughter #2 came by with a project she wanted to do.  Note on the (she),...
