Hello dear ones.  Hope everybody is enjoying this lovely Spring weather.  I've been waiting for the wind to finally go away.  For a while it was blowing every day.  Couldn't even enjoy going outside.  But I think it's finally gone now, thank goodness.  Sunshine and warm weather is all I want. A little breeze is nice too just not howling wind.  
 I've been trying to be productive in my creative quests but the days just zoom by and the only thing I can manage to get done are the daily chores and the necessary tasks.   I do, however, have a new sewing room that's been keeping me busy.  Hubby started building one for me a few months ago.  It's been finished for a while.  I've slowly been moving my things in there.  It's taken a while since I'm having to go through boxes to dig out my stuff.  Since we moved here two years ago all of my craft and sewing items have been stored in boxes out in the shed.  It is so nice to have a place to put them now. 

A room just for me.
 Ahhh...that thought makes me giddy.  
 I love going in there.  Sometimes I sort through my things and try to organize them.  Other times I move things around and try to make everything pretty.  Whatever the reason, I love spending time in there.  I haven't done any actual sewing yet.  I haven't had the time.  Maybe after school lets out and things slow down a bit.  But then again I always say that and summer vacations are always as busy as any other time of the year.  
 I had forgotten some of the things I had.  It was fun going through the boxes and discovering all of my treasures all over again.  It made me happy to be able to bring them out and let them see the light of day again.
 I brought in some of my furniture that was also in storage to store my fabric and vintage linens.  Skeins of yarn fill the drawers and my knitting needles are tucked away nicely in vintage jars. Ready to grab in a moments notice.
 Hubby did good building me this room. 
He knew I missed my things.
After twenty-five years together he knows me so well. 
What a sweet guy!

I've been trying to keep up with everyone's blogs even though I haven't posted in a while.  With the school year wrapping up, things have been so incredibly busy around here.  
It's track season.  Whoop!  Whoop!
We have two running this year.  Our son and youngest daughter both run in track.  I look forward to track season.  It's quite fun to sit in the bleachers and watch my kids compete.  I enjoyed watching M play football too but I was always so tense and nervous during the whole football game.  I don't know why I suppose it's because football is more of an intense sport.  With track  I am a lot more relaxed.  There isn't a coach out there yelling if you know what I mean.  I'm actually a little sad that the season is coming to an end.  It seems like it just started and already it's ending.  Track season is very short compared to other sports.  The district meet is this Friday and then the state meet next Friday and then graduation is the following Friday.
  Bam Bam Bam!  Seems like there is so much going on and everything is happening so fast it has my head spinning.  Yes our son (M) is a senior.  He will be graduating soon.  This is his graduation announcement. We attend all his sporting events so we've been traveling every week here and there trying to take it all in knowing his school days are coming to an end.  But even though it's a little sad for this momma, I know that he's moving on to bigger and better things.  It's all kind of sad and exciting all at the same time.  I think the word bittersweet is fitting.
 Can anyone relate?

Til next time,


  1. Bittersweet is most certainly the word and YES, I can relate. I remember it well. They grow up and move through life a little faster than we are ready for it seems. But we are so proud of them at the same time. It's a lot of emotions for us all over the place all at the same time.
    And a room of your own...
    How very wonderful for you :-)))
    I've been missing you here and I am glad to have you back.
    I figured you were busy with your family with the school year winding down.
    Love to you Dear One,

  2. I can certainly relate, I have three daughters that have flown the nest and now have families of their own. |It is hard to let them go, you have to love them enough to let them go and know they love you enough to keep coming back. Bittersweet indeed! Wonderful to have a sewing room again. I can relate to the pleasure of arranging things and just touching the yarns and fabrics. Take care.


Your thoughts and comments are appreciated. I take time to read each and every one and will do my best to return the visit.
