Hello Day

No napping and napping and drama everywhere...So here is a bit of the other part of our lives..:)
Lynsey has learned to whistle..five years old is a very good time for is 6:30 am before school.
She does not seem to mind at all the pillow thief..everyone sleeping soundly.
Dylan at the apple farm with Auntie Em, looking quite like his older brother!!
Pigs in the background.  They must like apples too
Evan getting his big cast cut off and a smaller cast attached. Quite the fascination as a saw cuts the cast and misses the skin..

Mr. O'Quilts has not been out of bed for almost two months now. 
 I want to scream...Get out of bed right now...come run with me in the wind.  Let's dance on the back deck...Lets hold hands and walk in the woods.  Let's quarrel about where to hang a picture or how to plant a rose bush.  Let's do the retirement thing like we planned...
Alas, he is paralyzed and he cannot..
.He wants to do it too...just like me.
Accepting life as it is and carrying on, it so tough sometimes.
Enough, enough..I am going to sew something right now.  I do not think I will be able to catch up on holiday sewing at all..
Marie..this is a picture that forever I seem to identify with...

And today's post from
I would love to live like a river flows, carried by the surprise of its own unfolding.

I wish I could whistle, days out are fun. I could not understand how the doctor removing the cast did not even nick the skin. I was scared stiff when they removed my sons cast, from waist to toe.
I hope you get pet some fabric soon.
Wishing you continued strength.

I don't comment often but have been following your blog. Praying you will feel God carry you through your days.

I bet the nap will do you more good than the quilting. Do what you can when you can, love.
And howl! It isn't fair -- as is so much of this tragi-comic human path we all follow.

Evan looks like a brave little boy. That has to be scary. I think doing some quilting is a great idea. I hope you can find some time and energy to do some.

I thought of you yesterday when I was walking home from a little bit of shopping (without the kids!! lucky me!!), I had been in a charity shop with a friend of mine and we found some really cute Whinnie the Pooh fabric and I am going to try and make a pillow case (inspired by you!!). Hugs and love to you all. I hope you will get to enjoy Thanksgiving this week (I hope I have got that right, we don't have thanksgiving here in Aus!!). xx
