Eve shopping, holiday market and a new item!

Good Morning and Happy Sunday! The last Sunday before Christmas and the second to last one of not just the year but of the decade. Kind of wild to think about the changes that have occurred in my life over that time span. So what happened this last week? The girls are done with school for the semester, both doing good on their final tests and having great holiday concerts. I think they are ready for some down time, most especially to be spent sleeping in! Amanda got the joy of going Eve grocery shopping with me. The cart was FULL and took two to get it out to the car after bagging it all up. Don't worry this isn't...

A close, my birthday and gratitude

Good Morning and Happy Sunday! Already a bit of a busy morning here with laundry spinning and kitchen cleaned up but I'm following the Sooner Rule: The sooner the work is done the sooner we can have fun.

Band, band and more band....along with step two

In the 5A division the top 20 bands at regionals qualify for the State competition. Monday was the Northern Regional that Fossil goes to. They scored an 89.65 which not only won the event but has placed them highest in the state. What...

Watercolor Tapestry step one and go time

Good Morning and Happy Sunday Internetland! It's a proper fall morning here in my corner of the Fort after our taste of winter last week. October is cruising along and it's hard to believe that Marching Band regionals are tomorrow already.  It's been a quiet week from a production standpoint with Daddy here but I am making progress on the afghan that he brought for me to repair. I crocheted him one many years ago and some of the squares were coming apart and seams making holes. This last week I took it all apart, sorted and repaired the squares that I could and am now in the process of sewing it all back together. Many thanks to Pockethouse for...
