The Very Good and Happy Day


HAPPY--clap along with Pharrell Williams
My girl and her chicken love...Portland style
Birthday presents for the married couple
with birthdays 7 days apart.
Made with love from Mommy..
Panels from Equilter





Not to leave out the squirrels living in their attic..lol
The other night I labeled, snipped and washed this stack of quilts.
This interesting tomato pincushion history.
The Tomato Pincushion
And so I sent it to my girl as her new house warming present.
It is on her mantle.

My yesterday potholder...
My Christmas Easter cacti

The great  news....I am doing so much better.
I think sometimes a person has to just cry and not to overthink it.
There is no answer to death and grief.

We are all benefiting from my new found energy.
End result...I am only doing what I want to do.
Besides the necessary things...
I am an old lady wearing purple..or...such

I am accepting self as I am, and my age.too.... (kind of)
Not so lost any more.
Now, move over life...here I am.

The children and I are close.
We are having fun together.
This weekend is so awesome.

Evan has a sleepover birthday party
Lynsey is having a sleepover and is walking in the St.Paddy's Day parade tomorrow.
Dylan is spending the night with his Aunt Charmaine and going with his cousin to watch the parade,
Grandma here is soooo happy for them being free to be themselves.

I have to hand it to their mother putting her children first, rather than her own agenda..
Speaking of their mother...baby due momentarily..we are so excited.
And, I am happily sewing.
Life is good.

So happy things are looking up. Do not sell yourself short...what a wonderful thing you are doing for your grandchildren. Not many ladies of a certain age could do what you're doing. Don't know that I could. Keep up the good work.

Yay for Christmas cacti blooming for Easter. I still have them blooming too. How could you not be happy looking at them?

Glad to hear you are doing well and with spring almost here, it will get better and better.

I love that HAPPY song. Cute chicken potholders. Great to hear you feeling better.

Fantabulous chicken potholders. They couldn't be any cuter or more perfect. Love them! Glad you are feeling better. Time is truly the great healer. Hugs!

So glad you had fun creating happy potholders for your Oregon kids! They will smile and think of you every time they use them. What a great gift ~ ~ and what a special weekend as you and your cherubs each celebrate the Irish in their own way. Lynsey will love the parade experience and the boys will be happy in their own places as well. And you, a weekend of your own again. You need those as often as possible.

I'm so glad the days are getting brighter and you are "wearing purple" !!! To be content in your own skin is valuable. I wish you comfort and delight for today.

Happy, happy to read this post Diane. You sound to definitely be in a better, happier place at the moment - good for you. Looking at the photo of the cactus plants, the one on the right is such a lovely orange/coral colour, not seen one before, please post when the buds are open! Hope you've had a good weekend and don't forget to tell us about the baby!

Love your pot holders & love how your granddaughter loves playing with her dolls. Life is always full of something or another, there is always so much to do in a day & you have a full house.
