 September 6,2020

Where oh where to begin, bear with me if there is typos, My mind is cluttered as well as my house!

I read the blogs you write and wish to respond but some just don't go through when I type them. I promise to do better in that department .A lot  has taken place in not only our country but just in our everyday lives. Two of my beautiful grandchildren got married. My grandson Alex got married in June, their wedding was to have taken place on the beach in the Outer Banks of N.C. but due to the Covid it was changed to just his parents and hers and took place in my sons beautiful back yard. They are wanting to have a vow renewal in June in N.C. next year. Then we have my wonderful special Faith who was her Papaws heart and she is in her last year of college to become an elementary teacher. She and her special beau Harley who is serving our country in the Army at Ft. Polk and with all the country problems going on can't get leaves, etc decided to get married on one of her visits to  see him  in July. Now she still has the big barn wedding planned in December but who know if he can come home or if this Virus will be gone, etc. So at least  they can get housing and etc. Such a happy couple! She is visiting him now and doing her classes on line. The base is in Leesville, La. and had damage from the big hurricane Laura. Seems like there is always something going on but I know that God has a big plan and we don't question that. I am thankful that I am getting around better and I am feeling like working again in my sewing room a big YEA for that. I am so happy to see all the great things you all are doing! Until next time I pray God's blessing on you and yours! Hugs, Marie

Hope everyone is doing well . I am trying to get myself to go  in sewing room but since the fall it is just a little scarrey but I know I will get their again. As far as I know all my family is ok too, we have been trying to distance ourselves and do what we should. I know I get lonely here by myself and that should make me get busy, plus that new machine just sitting there, I got the Epic 2 with all the bells and whistles  now just need to learn it. My sweet granddaughter is getting married in December and my grandson was to get married in June but think they have change the date with this virus  all over, they were getting married in Kitty Hawk, N.C. with a destination wedding on the beach. Please be safe all and lots of virtual hugs. Marie

Thankful Heart

Today was quiet with a lot of reflecton on this last year. I so happy with my healing from my hip surgery and looking forward to the holidays and boom down I went and broke my shoulder in three places, needless to say it has been tough. The doctors have said anywhere from nine months to a year for recovery and now who has that time to sit still!I will do it and make this year work for me. I had just set up my new Epic 2 sewing machine that does it all and I am going to learn it, might take a little longer but I love it. How was your holidays? I owe so much to my wonderful family, and I am going to take it slow and get it done. My prayer for 2020 is that we all have peace and love in our hearts. Hope to  hear from you all. Big hugs,Marie

Fall is here and it is my favorite time of year! Sure the energy will come soon too. Some of you may know that I have had a  rough two years health wise and my walking became most painful even with the walker. Went to a new Dr, In late May and he discovered that I had a blood disorder that was not allowing it to flow to my leg oh boy-- what does this mean, well I found out and on July24 they removed my  hip replaced it completely and to my joy no more leg pain and just had pain from the surgery which has now gone away. I am one happy lady. Now I hope I can go into the sewing room and enjoy myself again as  have several things that are in the process of being completed  know everyone in my family is fine now and I hope they will stay that way to. Wishing for all a beautiful week. Hugs, Marie

Seeing Again

It has been a long time since I posted,alot has happened, I have had a lot of eye problems and had surgery last week and I go back again on Monday, I am feeling good about the outcome!My family has been wonderful. In January we were thrilled to all be together at Hurlburt Field in North Fl. to see my sweet son become a Brig. General. This was filled with so much love and excitement, some of his childhood friends who has been close to all these years were there to celebrate with us.I was able to pin on one of his stars, what a honor and it is hard to do through tears of joy. I have not been able to sew  or quilt but I sure hope to get back to it soon as I truly miss it. I have been following you all and love to read the blogs, sending big hugs to all and have a beautiful Sunday.  Marie

Happy November

This year has gone by so fast  for me! I have not done very much but that is about to change. Maybe this nice weather is helping some. I actually feel like going in the sewing room, its been a long time coming. My big question of the day is what happens to us and makes us go in to a slump?? I sure don't like it,

My sweet family is wonderful . Mary Lisa and her hubby are doing great. Brian just retired from the Fire Dept.  with 29 years. But he is going back to work for the Maritime Academy, even while he was with the Fire service he taught for them for 15 years, so he will be right at home. Sweet granddaughter Faith has changed her major at college to Elementary Education, and she loves it and that sure makes us all happy. She and her young man, Harley are doing just fine, he is in the Army and right now he is in Va. until Feb. then off to another duty station, not sure where yet. He will be home for Christmas and that thrills her heart. My other daughter Lorie and her sweet man are great, they really travel a lot and also include me in plans when they are home, in fact I will be spending Thanksgiving with them this year, And yes my son Claude is doing wonderful too. He has been very involved in the honoring of John Chapman and he was thrilled to be a part of this as he and John were not only teammates but they were also station in Japan together, Combat Control is a very tight unit. As you all know he is the commander of the Combat Control group at Hurlburt  Field in the Panhandle of Fl. The Hurricane wreck that area sew bad . His base was saved but the other base was destroyed.

I have several UFO's and I am going to start working on them before I try anything else. I had both my eyes done as the cataracts were getting much worse. I will have my final exam the end of this  month and see what kind of correction I will need. It is really strange to be able to drive without glasses, I have worn them since about age 7or 8 and I still reach for them. But I am loving the new sunglasses.

Before I close I want to wish you all the blessings of Above  from my home to yours. Sending much love and big hugs to all.


I really do enjoy reading your blogs and  I will try to do better in responding!!!
