Wow BJ you are busy.!!
Post pic of the wall hanging if you can.
A week today we head to Toronto and stay at hotel, early start for Newfoundland on the Wed. And we have our little gson so didn't want to rush.
Probably won't be on here too much this next week.

Great news about the visas in 3 weeks! I know you will find a great place to call home and hang your hat.  So happy for you, Terri (and Ray).

I finished up a wall hanging yesterday from old quilt blocks that gals at the women's club out here did years ago. They had just been sitting around. Now they will be hanging in our clubhouse to be enjoyed. It's cabins and trees, very fitting for where I live.

This is a 'killer' week for me, so of course I "had" to work in switching my two freezers (house/garage) and defrosting them yesterday. DH and I chuckle. We had a freezer when all our kids were home, but never two big ones which we now have and are both full. Feeling quite blessed!  We pick up 40 lbs. boneless/skinless chicken breast tomorrow to put in and next month 40 lbs. ground beef. We're getting our meat through Zaycon. The quality is great as well as prices... well, I do go for their sales.

Today is cooking, tomorrow quilt block making, Thursday cooking and lodge prep, Friday - Sunday hosting a retreat.  Ah, the quiet life. LOLOL

Hola to you Terri, glad that you are settling in. Wishing you both every success in finding your perfect home. Glad that you don't have to wait too long for your visas.
Thanks for sharing the pictures.

Oh Terri, what a beautiful place. Hubby commented on how clean and fresh everything looks. Thanks for the update and photos.. Best of everything to you as you search for the perfect new home. I know it's waiting for you.

You both look very relaxed and happy Terri. Wonderful news for you both.

Hola! Hello from beautiful Cuenca, Ecuador. We arrived in Guayaquil on Friday evening and left for Cuenca via auto on Saturday morning. The drive was beautiful, although a bit scary. Half way up the Cajas, fog rolled in and you could not see 1 foot in front of the car. I was thankful for the fog, however, as I could not see the steep drop offs on the side of the road. At one point, all the railings were gone and only caution tape was strung, this was due to an Earthquake a few months back that rocked Salinas, Ecuador. 

When we got near the top, we drove out of the fog in into blue skies. You looked over the valley and all you could see were clouds shrouding the land below. While we here in the states would slow down in the fog, not so in Ecuador. They pass even when they can't see. While the Ecuadorians are a very laid back and gentle people, in their automobiles they are muey loco in la cabasa - crazy in the head! Surprisingly, there are few if any accidents.

We will have our Visas in 3 weeks time and are now hunting for a place to call home. Thought you might enjoy some pictures of our day.

Cindi prayers are with you and your husband

Cindy - still a lot on your plate. If there is dementia please get as educated about it as you can. That was such a HUGE help and blessing for me when I cared for my parents who both had it. Sorry your DH still has a list of challenges he's facing with his health.

Oh Terri, where have the days gone?! Can't believe your departure is at hand. Safe travels my friend. So happy with your report of Ray's  outcome. May you both find the slower, easier pace of life you are seeking. Look forward to your posts in the days to come. May the Lord keep His protecting hand upon you both.

Again, thank you for your organizing and assembling my beautiful quilt that so many of you made blocks for. I will always cherish it and each of you. And BJ for making the wonderful bag. It's perfect for taking along my hand work while at appointments, of which there are still many follow up ones to get hubby to. 

Update on him, he is still having problems with residual side effects of the radiation as well as the seizure problem has not improved. We are waiting for results of an xray taken today. Seems he may have reinjured his ankle and foot. There is also (and I've been concerned about this for quite some time) the indications we are dealing with dementia or the onset of Alzheimer's. One day at a time and we will get through this.
