Just wondering

Posted on November 13, 2015 at 11:56am 7 Comments

I was just wondering if anyone else has had a problem with not receiving notifications when someone writes on your page. I don't get an email and it's not going into my spam either. Has anyone else had this problem?

Brotherly and Sisterly Love!

Here's my 6 year old grandson and 4 month old granddaughter.  I hope they're always this happy with each other.

Beach Baby

Posted on June 14, 2014 at 9:30am 14 Comments

My DGD is ready for the beach with her new hat.  I told my DD that she looked like Minnie Pearl with the price tag still on.  Of course, she didn't know who Minnie Pearl was.  Guess that shows my age.  …


Baby #2 Has Arrived!!

Posted on March 31, 2014 at 9:30am 13 Comments

Our second DGD arrived Friday night at 11p.m. weighing 6 lbs. 10 ozs.  She had a hard time coming into the world but all is well now.  Her name is Kenadie.  This grandma is just too old for all this excitement.  I also put a picture DGD #1.  Alexandra is 3 weeks old now.…

Hello Hello....So glad your here..and doing well...

I'm not working!!!    So I have been home since the beginning of  August. They wanted to get someone who doesn't make that much money so they let me go..Its fine - I'm not looking any more...

so enjoying this time at home,,I got so many things done...I started rug hooking again...so very happy with that,,,

We put up a bushel of peaches,,,We went to Mt Airy..Oh it was so pretty and we saw so many shops.!

that's where we bought the peaches...They were so good...Now in the beginning of October we will go over there to Wilksboro, NC and get our apples...for apple sauce.

We ended up painting our living room, and my DH made our fireplace mantle..it came out really  nice.!

Wow the baby is going to school.? What how time flies! That must be giving you some relief...I know they get you so tired. lol!

I still haven't done any sewing,,but our Guild has a farmers market in November, so all of us are pitching in to give some of our homemade gifts and hopefully make some money for us as a group.....I don't remember but do you go to any quilt guilds? or any sewing groups?

Well my class for rug hooking is tomorrow, and my bible study on Deuteronomy is on Friday morning.

DH may be out of work sooner instead of later,,,He's only working on Saturday mornings....then we can do what we want...!

Garden is almost done, wealmost got the last of the tomatoes....more juice or pasta sauce,,,!

Have a great week,, write soon......................DH turned 63 on September 1st....

What a crazy weather patterns we are having with all the hurricanes HUH!

Hi There,,Got on the computer today really easy,,,My day off so I am cleaning like crazy.!

We are having a cook out with our Sunday School class, at our house,,but it's suposto be 100* by then, and the humidity will be up there too. So I am trying to organize my house..it is coming along.

My you have been busy..Summer is way too hot and with no rain, its not any better than what you got.

Yes I am still working, job is good..old ladies are still crabbie....... and DH is still working too..but not for long..He may be out at the end of the season...He just wants to be home doing things here..and going places..We went to Raleigh and saw a concert with Jeremy Camp, Mercy Me, Natalie Grant, and 2 other bands..it was a great night!  then the next day we went to a play-"the Wizard of Oz" Really nice...had a great weekend, that was for my birthday a few weeks before. We are still celebrating. LOL!

Our garden is good but slow..no tomatoes,,,well green ones...cukes..we will make relish tonight. The big thing we did this year was my herb bed,,,it rurned out really well. and we put stone in a lot of places so we wouldn't have to contend with the mud and dirt from the garden..everything seems to come in the kitchen.! My rosemary is really large and basil, lavender, chives and lemon balm etc,,,,, and it seems the humming birds are all over the place..along with the butterflies.We spread mulch out on one of the hottest days of the year and it was nuts,,We were so tired, but the place looks great.

Life here is good,,,time to slow down for a bit though...We are very busy with everything going on,,,and to think if we had grandkids life sure would be different. A friend of ours told us he had a field of verggies and to come get them.. WHAT? Ok so we got corn, cabbage, tomatoes, cantelope, watermelon...That was nice,,I may not grow so much in our garden next year if that's the case.

He just plants rows of it with his tractor...How sweet is that? You see God provides.!

We planted the rhododendron's and now we have to water them...Bad move when it's this hot out! Hopefully we did ok with the herb bed,,but he covered everything with newspaper before he put the mulch on.

Well I need to get back to cleaning,,No sewing here,, I'm out side way too much..and work is getting in the way again...oh well..

Enjoy the grandchildren while you can,,,,kiss them often,,hug them a lot and take pictures, they grow up before you know it..

Have a safe summer and be good..............write soon.

Hello Hello,,,My computer isn't working very well....So I haven't been on...Yes with work I have been very busy..Dh has been too...Still working at the nursery,,but probably not for long...it may be in the fall that he will stop working...

Ok for the bad news: We had to go to Connecticut again...My God-Father Tom, passed away,,,We just got back home..and we are so tired..I almost fell asleep at work,,,and I still have to go to my quilt guild meeting..UGH!

Oh no a hip operation! That's one that will make all things new..you'll feel better is what a lot of people are saying..

Wow I did hear of your storms..but the computer gets down every time we have a storm..

At least your working at sewing,,I haven't been able to get there..sat down last night and did one seam..its too hot!

We have a lot of yard work to do,,,we started making a herb bed in the back of the house,,Haven't finished it yet.

Our son gave us a rhododendron, so something else to water when we are already in a drought...it was 98* today

Well I need to make supper for DH...Have a great week............

Good morning, I am so sorry I haven't written in so long...But my new job part time has gotten me so busy I don't have time to cook either.!  So what's up? you ok? I haven't heard from you in a while...

I started my new job just about 2 weeks ago, my other lady friend died.:( --This lady is a joy to work for,,,she doesn't talk much but none of them really do. Easy company and the son and Dil who hired me love that I'm able to come sit with her, and the house is really clean, and kept up.

I haven't sewed in about a month...This job keeps me so busy and with it being around the corner from the last lady, (1/8th of a mile) so I'm still traveling the same...and I'm not in the heat anymore...They were sad that I left...but they knew I was always looking for a caregivers job.

Our bedroom is done except for the shutters and curtains...and the decorating, but that will come in time when I know what I want to put in there.

I got sick again but it was only a weekend cold...that was crazy. I

I also went on a "Women of Joy Conference" That was fun and inspirational.

We are trying to plan a trip for our anniversary. in October...Not sure where we will go yet.

Well I do hope your fine..I'll have to see if I have your phone #...

Have a great weekend..........

Good Evening,,,I was looking at the weather and saw that there was some baseball size hail coming your way,,and decided, it's time for a letter to be written to you.

Hope your ok and doing well..After my 3 weeks of being sick with the cold, I started a job at my husbands job,,at the nursery,,planting seeds, moving hanging baskets around, watering,...it is hard work but I only work from 8am-12 or until they send me home...I thought I would die last week I stayed until 3pm...., it was so hot--85* My face was so red...I had to go and sit down for a while. We are still not usto be in this heat so soon in the season.

Easter was fine. Went to church,,went out to eat and came home and sat on the back deck and did some bible study and Frank read a book,, Wow we haven't done that in a long time.!

Oh yeah,,I did say after I left my lady friend (the one that I was taking care of),, that it would be about 6 weeks and she would be in a nursing home...Well guess what? She got a UTI and landed in the hospital and in a nursing home last week...You just can't give people what ever they want, and expect that they will be fine, Chocolate, junk food, and ride around all day and not care for them like they should be...Something will happen....But on one wanted to listen to me.

It sure seems like your very busy...good, because you don't want to be bored..LOL!

glad to hear your still buying fabric,,,that means your still quilting,,some what,,,I haven't bought any new fabric for a while,,we went to Raleigh today,,but we have to buy new glasses for both of us. I have so much already that I need to use up. and we are trying to sell what I already have in the house to make room for other things....

We finish up our spare room and painted everything, now it is done. and we had our first company to use it...they just left this morning.

Well I need to get going to get ready for tomorrow,,have a great week,,stay safe..

Hi,  Janette!  Hope all is well with you and your families.  I thought of you today while looking at the weather map.  Looks like you might be getting some rain.  We could use some.  It's been a very dry winter here with times of unseasonably warm temps.  Not sure what the spring/summer will bring, but we need the moisture.  

My family is all doing well.  Mom is adjusting to Dad's passing, and baby Ian weighs over 17 lbs and is sitting up and trying to crawl.  Merrick likes to come visit.  Spends most of his time outside if he can.  We are also expecting grandbaby #3 the end of June (son and wife's first baby).  They are not finding out the gender, so we'll all be surprised when he/she arrives.  

Take care.

Hello..We just got back from our mini vacation from going to see the kids up in Connecticut. We are so tired...With Dh driving all the way back,,we stopped in Pennsylvania for 2 nights,,they had a very bad storm,,,2 feet I think..the piles on the sides of the road were so we could not see over them...and then our GPS took us on every side road you could think of,,really? no highway ? In this weather? How crazy is that? Took us a while to find 95 to get home. 

The kids were great,,,DGS #2-Alex-2-is so full of energy the minute he gets up...Whew! and the DGD #!- Victoria is really quiet and settled down...and so grown up at 7 yrs old.

DGS #3-Jackson-1- is quiet, hasn't figured out what to do with life, but is so beautiful and I stole him away just to kiss and touch him.

We got home yesterday and now I have a cold of some sort. Glad to be back home,,way too much snow for us to be dealing with right now esp. when it was in the 80*'s before we left.

When we stopped by Pennsylvania, I stopped by a fabric store and bought some fabric, for my spare room that we are finishing up.

Now to look for a job and finish up what we started in our house before the spring really gets here, and we start planting our garden.

I hope your fine and just busy with life...I heard you had tornados and snow,,so I'm not sure which one was worse. Either way stay warm.! ~ Hugs

Hello There,,, I'm back from the crazies...Ok so now the craziness is over,,I officially quit my job. They found someone else to take care of her.

So we finished the laundry room with stenciling,,,it looks great,,,I want to live in that room,, I really love it...Now we are painting the spare room...white and we will be going to Connecticut next week..Can't wait until we see the babies and our children...I think we both need some family time.

I cleaned my entire house..oh boy has it been that long since I cleaned..? I guess it was...

Now I'm going to my meetings with the golden age club,,,and my quilting guilds,,with much more than "just getting there and saying Whew!"....I'll have time to really watch what I am doing. and relax.

Our weather was 85* last week,,had shorts and sleeveless shirts on,,I was good with that,,,last night we had a thunderstorm,,,,with lots of rain which we needed. and today we are back on with sweatshirts and sweatpants....it's only 40* at night and 59* in the day time,,glad to have the sunshine...I think I posted pictures..let me know if you see them..

Have a great day,,,

Hello there,,Life has passed me by,! Don't know how but it is..working is crazy,,Sorry I haven't written but with working and all..it's nuts,,,30 hours a week..and DH was laid off for about 6 weeks so we built a 9' cabinet in our laundry room.....it looks beautiful,,So we painted the bath room and painted the laundry room and took off all the (cardboard) trim..That what it seems like it was made out of...and bought new boards made out of real wood. LOL!  We got that all done and we got the head cold thing that lasted for 3 weeks each..

They Dh went back to work last week and I gave my notice at work cuz my lady friend attacked me,,she got so angry that she tried to take my keys away from me, trying to find hers..No more I said.

I don't feel safe there any more,,she is like a nice one day and not the next,,esp when I do things for her like she wants me to do,,then she gets mad at me. So I told the family and they want me to stick around until they can find a replacement..I don't want to do the job anymore....I'm depressed about the whole thing...

Sorry about your bug - getting it twice and all,,that is terrible. Valentines day we worked,,,and went out on the weekend, I really miss going out and sightseeing this beautiful state,,but we can't do it when we work,,,Frank says "Work is getting in the way of having our fun"

They are closing a lot of our churches and schools because of the bug too..its crazy...

I am fine just tired because of the hours that we work...I hope you are well,,,I won't get on here much, We are going to finish painting the spare room,,I went to an auction and bought a bed for 35 dollars. so are going to put it in the room now,,so paint we will but I have to get the paint for the trim first,,and that's back in Pennsylvania...guess we will have another trip back home..

well its late and I need to head to bed..I'll talk to you soon,,I hope,,I know we are very busy,,need to slow down,,Talk to you soon...keep your head up like gets better...

be good,,,Have a nice week...Happy Valentines Day!

I got most of my UFO"s done,,we didn't meet for out Guild meeting in January,,it was all ice.....so I sewed all day and then some,,I haven't stopped except to eat...I finished up my red white and blue one,,that one is gorgeous! and I finished up the lady bug quilt,,that one was really cute,,but I had to change up the colors I originally though of,, because it looked really bad. I also delivered the 3 quilts I finished up from a year ago...and I am making the bento blocks for all the purple quilts I am working on,,,so far I made 2 tops 9 blocks each....I feel so accomplished,! We had Chinese for new years and we went to bed around 10..crazy,,but I had 3 days off  including Monday so I sewed all day,,and my DH is working on making us 2 cabinets,,,one over the washer and dryer,,that came out really good,,,,and the other one is huge and that goes all the way to the ceiling,,,9' tall...2 bookcases,,and a corner hutch right in the middle of it,,..it is going to be a great storage place for all my groceries,,! Yay!

I haven't been on here,,I lost my sister....no one told us,,she died 2 years ago...2014...

and then one of my good friends from our quilting guild in Connecticut-Mary O'Leary died,,in Sept,,,I was really bummed out...I couldn't sleep for 6 hours..That was hard,,,

I don't get on here too much because I am sewing the minute I get in....this is winter time and this is where I get all my sewing time put in,, You can call if you need to talk,,

I get home after 5PM - 1-252-257-2091 If you want to...That would be nice...to hear from you.
