Hello! Where have the days gone? Here we are almost done with February and March is right at the door; I obviously have been so busy that I haven't spent any time here. I guess it's been so long and rearranging photos here has changed-so forgive me that they are out of order. The first photo of a purse I made starting at the end of January-it was a pattern called Bowl Me Over 2.0 by Annie's. I got the pattern one year ago, at the Road to California quilt show that I attended with my best friend Barbara. At the time, I looked at the example and thought it looked simple enough-but, oh my it has some challenging aspects. The are three zippered compartments, two of the zippers were cut down to size. It also has the front flap pocket and inside has a divided pocket. I loved the fabric and so does hubby; in fact he is still so disappointed we couldn't go to Maui last year that he's saying Maui or bust. This coming week some of our neighbors are going and he's whining, a lot. Hopefully by the fall we will be feeling more comfortable with going.

Hello friends, Oh my where have the days gone?! I thought sure I had been here since the New Year entered in, but so much has been going on lately that time has slipped away. I have been dealing once again with my blood pressure, so have limited my time on social media; in fact, I am now also on MeWe and try my best to stay off of FB. We are no longer listening to MSM's news, except for weather. I have been sewing more, walking and focusing on the blessings of today.
Blessings to you!

Hello friends, I had almost forgotten to post this today, until I saw someone else post. This week has been different than most, filled with lazy, cold days and puttering around the house. Today I got in and organized part of my sewing room and hope to start a new project soon. We had plans to spend tomorrow evening with the family, but decided to stay home and have a quiet night instead. Our game night will be postponed until another evening in January. Well, 2020 was definitely a different year; one thing for sure is that I'm so thankful for taking the trip to go to Road to California with my best friend, purchasing a new, to me, Chevy Tahoe and then finding a trailer to go with it. We had so many fun trips with the trailer this last summer, especially due to the horrid virus hitting our country. Thankfully, we avoided it~but we certainly missed seeing our friends. Our trip to Estes Park in January was such a hit for the whole family and the trip to South Dakota was the highlight of the fall for us. Some dear friends moved out from California and they have a trailer, so we are hoping for many more trips with them this coming year. In the works are Utah, South Dakota again and maybe even Montana. Hubby and I had to cancel three trips this year~one to Hawaii that we rescheduled a second time and cancelled and also a cruise to Alaska. Hubby is determined we'll get back to the Islands this coming year, but time will tell.
I pray that you have a healthy and contented New Year and that the virus will slow down, if not completely vanish. A girl can hope, can't she. Blessings to you!

It was so cold, but all of our grands ice skated, while my girls and I put our feet up on a ledge of a fire pit to try to stay warm.

All three puppies are sold already and phone calls had to be made to the others who wanted a puppy. The vet thought there would be five, from the ultrasound photo. There are some disappointed folks out there. Copper's puppies are highly sought after. I get to see them at least once or twice a week and even have a few hours of puppy sitting duty, which I absolutely love.

Hello there, How are you today? Even during a Pandemic and crazy things happening in our country, it feels so good to be able to get out and give to others. Yesterday I purchased a couple of loaves a Cinnamon Bread at a local bakery and delivered them to the doorstep of two girlfriends homes. Both ladies had been on my heart and I just wanted to let them know I was thinking of them. It felt so good. The bakery didn't have any bread that was gluten free, so I passed but may go back on Thursday. Today I ran a birthday gift to a dear friend; I was able to catch up with her a bit and it was wonderful.
May your days be merry and bright.

You can tell it was pretty chilly, but fun none the less. After the hike, we drove back into town and walked the Main Street stopping to browse in a couple of stores, masks on of course.
