Welcome friends. Thank you so much for stopping by on this nasty February night. We woke up to about 5-6 inches of snow ~ not too bad ~ and for the most part of the day we were without precipitation. That changed a couple of hours ago and we are getting freezing rain and it's just supposed to get worse. Even if the city shuts down, I don't have the luxury of staying home because I work for the Street Department and we spent the day fielding many complaints concerning snow removal. I have a feeling tomorrow will be worse :(
I got the most wonderful surprise in the mail yesterday from Cathy over at Acorn Hollow. She recently became a first time Grandma and I sent a little gift for her new granddaughter. She sent me the most beautiful card, a yard of wool and this Sampler and Tapestry Embroideries book. It is a republication of a book originally published in 1913. How cool is that? Thank you for your thoughtfulness, Cathy! Like I said, blog buddies are THE BEST :)
In just a few days I have gotten so far behind in my blog reading and wonder when I can get caught. I miss reading what is going on with all my friends. I'm guessing I am having some computer issues this evening because of the weather, so I won't be doing much catching up tonight. Maybe tomorrow???
I can't believe it's February already! Today would have been my Mom's 91st birthday. I have a funny little Mom story. My Mom was always a feisty one and the older she got, the fesitier she got. Until the week before she died she could still communicate a bit. One evening when I was leaving I told her I loved her and I'd stop by the next day. She told me "bullshit"! That is the last thing I remember my Mom saying, and if you knew that great lady, it was a perfect ending. Love you, Mom. Happy birthday!
Welcome and thank you for stoppping by. I live just two blocks from beautiful Lake Erie. I am a rug hooker, needle puncher, and antique collector. I bought my first antique in 1983 and have not stopped since. I keep telling my boys that the antiques are their inheritance.
I am mom to two adult sons and grandma to 12 year old Jake.
