And God said “Blog”

Welcome to my first blog.

To quote Bryan Adams, “Here I am – this is me.”


IMG_3673I’m Granny, this is my blog and I am so glad you stopped by for a visit!

It’s been said the hardest step of any journey is the first one.  Maybe not.  Maybe the hardest is the second one.  The first step gives you plenty of opportunity to turn around and run.  The hardest step is taking the second one and not turning around.

I’ve made it to the third step . . . Am I brave or what?!?

If you have ever contemplated starting a blog of your own you know what I am talking about.  And if you’re on the first step of your blogging journey  YAY YOU!! Continue reading “And God said “Blog””

The Days Will Pass Like Summer Storms

Welcome, friend.  It’s so good to see you.

We’re in the midst of a  pretty big storm.  Right in the midst of a very busy week.  There’s’ a party brewing this weekend and ain’t no storm gonna stop me.  It’s supposed to start clearing by tomorrow afternoon so blue skies are predicted by the weekend.

It’s hard to believe it’s already the middle of the week.  I’ve been busy shopping and crafting and crafting and shopping.  Today will be a repeat.  It was going to be all crafting all day but I need to get Rx filled and I ran out of mounting tape three quarters of the way through my monogram project.

What Time Is It…..

Hey there, friend.  Welcome.

I hope you’re having a good week.

Less than a week to go until the big get together.  We got the Sam’s shopping taken care of.  And of course there was a swing by Hobby Lobby to pick up some crafting supplies.  I even managed to complete a couple of projects already.  It’s amazing what you can do with dollar store canning jars and ribbon and yard sale lace.

Rainy Days and Mondays

Hey, friend. Welcome.

We were trying to decide the best time to do the Sam’s shopping.  The local weather forecast answered that question.  It’s going to be spotty today with increasing chances of rain into the afternoon and tonight with certain rain forecast for the rest of the week.

Am I concerned?  Yes.  Am I worried?  No.  It will all work out for the best.   Continue reading “Rainy Days and Mondays”

Eight Days and Counting Down

Hey, you.  Welcome, friend.

By this time next Saturday our family gathering at the local living history museum will be drawing to a close.  There’s a lot of busyness to be done between now and then from making badges for the cake contest judges to nailing down a large ice chest to hold ice for the drinks.

There are also things popping up unexpectedly.  Like securing the perfect jug for serving lemonade – when not even looking – to realizing if you’re going to have a pound cake contest with judges and awards you actually have to have a criteria for the judges to judge by.

I’ve been dreaming about this day, planning for this day, waiting on this day for a long time.  In addition to cousins and cousins once or twice removed there will be in-laws, outlaws, close family friends and family by heart.  It will be the day when heart connections cross bloodlines and true family comes together.

Week in Review

Hello, friend.  I hope you’ve had a good week.  Welcome!

Looking back over my week it was both busy and productive.  The programs for our family get together went to the printer Wednesday and were picked up yesterday.  There are only eight days until the big day. There’s a lot of last minute stuff to do but it’s the crafty, fun kind.

The bedroom decorating, especially the DIY curtain tiebacks are coming along nicely. A new rug is on the way. The new mattress is on the way.  And my new roommate is settling into his new digs. Continue reading “Week in Review”
