Born, raised and lived in Kansas all my life. Then in November of 2007, my husband and I moved to the east coast. My husband's dream has been to renovate an old house. So, here we are in a house built in 1890 and we work hard to keep it from falling down around our ears. Sometimes I wonder, "What were we thinking!?"
My blog is about what is happening in my life as I adjust to living in the south, adjust to being an empty nester, adjust to menopause, adjust to being a grandma...
Can it be Friday already? I'm sitting here thinking of all the things I need to get done in the next few days before I head back to Kansas to visit family and friends. And as usual, when I'm stressed, I do nothing or I try to do everything all at once accomplishing nothing.
This week, I finished the needle case and pin cushion I'm giving to my mom for Mother's Day while I am *home*. You can see one similar here.
I got several things finalized for Daughter P and SIL A's wedding reception, including finding a dress and shoes.
I've made two trips to the post office to check our new P.O. box for mail only to arrive home and find our mailbox on the house stuffed with mail. What a mess! If it is delivered to our house today, I will make ANOTHER trip to the post office to find out what is happening. If you missed my rant about my *enjoyable* trips to the post office, you can read that here.
Back in March, Kelly at (un)Deniably Domestic led me to a give away at Apron Memories, ElleynAnne Geisel's blog. My entry for this give away can be seen here. The random drawing took place today and I am one of the six lucky winners! WOOHOO! You can check out all the goodies I won here.
Now I must get busy cutting and sewing ten yards of red gingham fabric into table mats and runners for the wedding reception. The reception's theme is picnic. I ordered black plastic ants to go on the gingham mats for the tables. They should have been here by now but with our messed up mail delivery, who knows where they could be! Makes me want to curse!
Don't forget to visit threeundertwo at Lit and Laundry to see what others have accomplished this week. Tell us what you Finished for Friday.
