My Blog and I
I am doing some de-stashing as the elderly often do. My sister said 12 bags of scraps are too much and I must get rid of some.
I am relaxing by proving my sister wrong. Sewing scraps together in a random way for use in my Accuquilt cutter.
Self-Care for Grandma is here. This morning I took myself to breakfast, chatted with my favorite waite-staff, then sat in my cool and awesome car by a lake to relax. I reminded myself that I am still alive and thus will make choices for myself. I then came home to a clean house....Thank you Yadi!! My cleaning lady is the best gift to myself.
School is out on June 8. I have already signed my darling teenagers back to their parents. Their mother stepped in immediately with doctor appointments, school registration, vacations...etc...Their father....not so much. That is OK..I am going to retire from childcare in just a bit...So exciting for me.
I live in the woods...a lovely secluded property. Yesterday someone set the playground equipment on fire behind my house Fire chief said it was definately arson. I took this picture from my deck. Way too close for comfort.

Three years ago on Mother's Day, my son brought me this.....Lisa??? Not only has it bloomed again, but evidently a seed has spread to another random pot.
See how love spreads!!
In our backyard, neighborhood kids...teenagers!!! OMG
Last night we signed papers for the children to live with their mother starting June 8, the last day of school.
Today, I went to the pool, to Goodwill and to the grocery store and took a nap
Such a very lazy grandmother!!
I bought two sets, I love them so!! Planning on making an Easter 16 patch....some day....The strips are already cut now for mindless sewing when I have friends visiting.
I tried to contact you Mary, but the link was invalid and came back to me..

I do not know why rain is coming through my eyes..Maybe because May is fraught with painful memories....ALS awareness month, my mother's birthday, my mother's death day (tomorrow, May 9), my father's death day , My husband's diagnosis day, the day my mother fell out of her wheelchair and broke her neck, Mother's day, the big flood anniversary
...All of these memories are in May June first is our wedding anniversary...How can I get through May?
Tomorrow I must leave the house and see friends...There seems to be a committe in my mind that stresses me out...next thing I know, Pearl and her sisters will come visit....UGH
Thank God I have lunch plans tomorrow and supportive friends. Thank God I have quilting and quilting buddies. Thank God for a lot of things..
