"a diamond is a chunk of coal
that did well under pressure"
New header I took a couple of years ago
saw it looking out the window as I sat in an old chair - rocked my son and youngest daughter in,
retrieved my camera
and got the shot :)
Another crown came off an hour ago
will be reapplied soon
only have 3 but seems dry mouth and gums (schogrens) contribute to this
do not like this..
Beautiful cooler weather
like 62 degrees this morning
helper a few hours this morning
and washed some windows.
Everything I did in the Fall
in years past
was done in a week
not any more
now takes a month or longer with a little help.
So much I want to go over, organize and clean
hopefully done in October.
Oldest daughter arriving for a couple of days in September
arriving with her my first granddaughter that is expecting her first baby
a boy :)
I want to talk to him
so he knows his great grandmother...
Baked Zucchini bread, 3 loaves, one for me and two in the freezer
hopefully one will remain for daughter - along with blueberry bread and want to
bake pumpkin bread and maybe banana.
When it is cool
I love to bake
what,s different, it takes forever
and a big mess
what use to take 1 1/2 hours
now takes 3 hours or more
also like to iron and upstairs on the loft
ironing board has been brought out of the storage room
and is piled high with ironing.
Also a basket with hand sewing that I do not do well :)
but no one turning up hems to look at my stitches
everything is too long for me...
Oh my mother was a seamstress ( I took her my sewing and have many of her quilts
and each child and grandchild has one)
her mother and grandmother all sewed beautifully
talent not passed on to me
or I think
my daughter's :)
With age everything changes
but not my reading, love my books with a passion
do not want the new thing you sit and read
I want a book I can feel and keep close by
they surround my old chair, on my nightstand, can live without much
but not my books, good home cooked food and my garden to look at and flowere I grow inside
Life's simple pleasures
are the best....
