Betty that was a great story about your Grandmother, I enjoyed it, their is days when I would like to tell them to fix their own meals especially when they can not get here until hours after meal time.
Keep your chin up, I know at times it seems like you can not take any more, talk with you clergy and they should be able to help you, I have some favorite places in the bible that I go to for my depression and they seem to help. There is nothing worse then the feeling of being alone but we are never really alone god is always with us.
Hi Betty, hope all is ok with you. I haven't heard in awhile.
Things are hetic here as usaul, my Youngest son is at Districts in BB, so I have been busy with that, but I will not be going to any of the district games as it is too far and the weather is not predictable enough.
I have been trying to finish up some projects I started awhile ago before I start any new ones but I keep getting these ideas in my head and off I go making more ufo's. LOL
Well my cowboy crew are on their way to the house from the barn for dinner(lunch) so I better get busy.
Hi Betty sounds like you have been busy also. This time of year is always very busy for me, cattle are calving, taxes are due (lots of paperwork), High School Basket Ball and all keep me busy. I also have about 6 quilts in different stages that I need to get finished.
The Traveling Trivet started as a joke on the Stitches for a Year group. There now is a group just for the Traveling Trivet, if you are interested you can join the infomation on how is on the group, I believe the name is Sista's traveling Trivet, something like that.
I am going tomorrow to my DD for a couple of days to help her start getting a room ready for a nursery. She is expecting her first in July. They are very excited. I need to go finish her table topper I started for her in Oct. for her birthday and I still am not quit done with binding it. I get to many irons in the fire and never finish anything. Well I'd better get busy.
Betty cinnamon raisen bread is one of my favorites I like it toasted with cream cheese on it. YUM YUM.
I am glad you son is doing ok, Working at the food pantry on wednesday, gives you something to look forward to. I know that at times I get really bored and set in my routine by not working and pretty soon I don't accomplish anything.
I have been working on some red work embroidery and cross stitch lately, I need to quilt some tops I have done but just don't seem to be able to get into it. Wish I could afford to send some of them to a long arm quilter but I cann't. I just keep trying to improve my skills on my little machine, so far I have had very little problems, but I have a hard time talking myself into starting to quilt something.
It has been raining here and the River is coming up a little, but most of all it is just muddy and our three mile dirt road is flooded, my car is just to low to the ground to take out any more so I am stuck at home. I should be using the time wisely and quilting up a storm but I just can not make myself maybe tonight.
I am sorry it has taken me so long to get back to you. It was good to hear from you, sounds like things are going a little bit better for you now. I live about 120 miles from Kuna. I am really out in the middle of nowhere. I have been busy with moving cattle off the range for winter and weining the calves. It is almost time to turn cattle out on the winter range so then we start all over again.
Glad you enjoyed the websites, it certainly getting colder here as well
I have had vertigo so not been doing much sewing it been more knitting of late
You take especially with that cough
Betty I am sorry it has taken me so long to get back to you, I was hoping I work out being in town this week end but It is not going to work. Haying is in full swing and with break downs and all I am stuck hear at home.
Betty I hope you have a good time with you Son in Clarkston, I have had company my nephew, his wife and three daughters came for a visit they found ranch life very different then city life. The girls ages are 13, 11, and 8 they had a blast swimming in the river, swathing hay, fishing, rabbit hunting and just plain being out side. I was real impressed with the girls not once did they ask to use the computer or watch tv found something else to do.
Sorry to hear that your sons are having jproblems finding work I know the job situtions is bad, we all need to be thankful for what we have.
Oh Betty I am glad to here from you, sorry to hear about your BIL, it is really hard when you can not go see them.
I have been busy sewing and gardening, but the grass hoppers moved in 3 days ago and things are really beginning to look eaten, my BIL and SIL house on the other side of the river doesn't look touched. My air conditioner stop working and so we are trying to get it fixed by this time in the afternoon it is really starting to get hot in hear. Well I need to go finish a few things for supper.
I too am hoping we can get together one of these days.
Betty I am so sorry it has taken me so long to get back to you. My sister passed away of a rare blood cancer In April and I have been slow at getting back into the groove of things. I am now starting to get my life back to normal. I would love to met you some day in Nampa or Caldwell for lunch or at one of the local quilt shops. I need to have about a weeks notice so that I can make sure I do not have a crew to cook for.
I just finished making a spare bedroom into my sewing room it has been so much fun,. I need to finish moving in but I already love the room. I painted it an Aqua color, it is bright an chearful.
It nice to meet up with old friends, hope that your son don't have too much trouble job wise.
This afternoon me & my friend have pulled out fabric for my next project & she fetched her ones across so we could see which ones for her to use i picked out for 2 quilts one in homespun & the other is in a sort of civil war repo
