Knock, knock, knock....is there any one there? Is this thing on?
Hello...hello? Can you hear me now? Hello?
Well, like the title suggests...I have a kindle. And I use it for everything. And I rarely pick up the laptop. The kindle doesn't have an sd slot or a usb spot. No place to upload pictures. And well, I am old school about taking pictures with the tablet. I don't have a smart phone. So, that isn't my main camera.
Anyway, it's been a L..O..N..G.. time since I last posted anything. Although, I have been reading your blog posts daily. Yeah, I know, I never comment anymore either do I? And then I get on the laptop and it wants me to log in. Do you have any idea how long it has been since I logged into Google?!
Well, lots has happened since I last posted. Do you remember that I fell down and busted my arm? It's been 4 months ago. Had surgery in September and then went back under for them to bend and straighten the arm. Turns out. It's fine. It's my head refusing to allow me to relax and do what the arm needs to do. So....I continue to fight for each degree of motion I have.
Do you remember that I told you I was going to be a grandma? Well, things have been bumpy there too. Just a few days before I broke my arm...Courtney lost the baby. They had a few very difficult weeks and told us on Thanksgiving that she was pregnant again! Today she is 13 weeks and a day. This is how she announced it on Facebook.
Let's see....Oh, Christmas. When last you heard - I was going to be making little snow hats for my tree, Um, no. My hand wasn't coordinated enough to do that. So, the tree was blue, white and silver. I loved it so much it was up until New Year's Day. Unheard of in this house!
|Ignore the sweeper and base of the tree.|
Next year's tree is already planned and it will be icicles and snow flakes. Thank you Pinterest for that one!
And also thanks to Pinterest...I made these! The candy cane things. No idea what to call them, but difficult to cover and put away. No shelf is high enough and I don't want to take them apart.
We did manage to get our family photo this year. We've been slipping lately!
I want to know how the kids have gotten so old! And what's with all the white hair for Rob and I??
Oh, stitching....I have been doing a bit of that. Still on perforated paper, but I think I may be ready to go back to linen. Cross your fingers on that one.
I can't remember the designer name or the name of the pattern. I'm thinking 'Snow Juggle' is the pattern name. Too lazy to go find out.
Oops...real life intrudes! Time to go make dinner. Homemade chicken noodle soup on a snowy day. What perfect timing. lol
Until next time!
