Is it ever too late?

Hello Folksies

Long time, no see.  Or hear.  Or whatever.  I have been so erstwhile this year.  Fancy word for being formerly occupied.  OCCUPIED?  No, not that type of occupier.  Life has been so full of everyday stuff that for me to actually take the time to sit on my backside and talk to you has been, well, out of the question for me. A comfort for me is that when you are true friends, time and distance mean nothing. You pick back up like you did when you fell off that proverbial bicycle.

Let me fill you in briefly.  Spring came.  Spring went.  Summer came.  Summer's gone.  Waiting on Fall.  Yay.
My garden has been a source of true love for me this year.  I also spent much time, sweat, and laughter at my Mother's house, re creating a front garden entrance.  It is still a WIP, like the rest of my life, however, it has been so theraputic for me, my sis Cat and my Mom.  So many "girls day together" has been worth every drop of sweat, every ache in my back and shoulders.

I still haven't seen my grand baby, Nora.  I am indulged with photos on a very regular basis.  She is the obvious center of their universe.  Nana here has been busy making baby things to send their way on a regular basis.  (Y'all know that if I am not in the garden, I have needle and thread in my hand.  Or paper mache, or a chocolate chip cookie)

I've also been busy with some online quilting buds, creating pin cushions to swap, working on a Secret Santa Buddy Swap is going to be an amazing end to the year.  There is always time to make something for someone in need and trust me, the joy of my life is to really share what I create. 

And as you know, we be a real social family, so we get together probably far too often for cook outs.  I just love men who cook

Here are a few other things I actually photographed of what I have been working on. You know me. I always forget to take pictures of the important things. Sigh.

I will try to not be such a Walter Mitty.  I do create the best things in my head.  Look for me to be back soon.

I adored the slide show! You sure have been busy!!! And that grandbaby is precious!

I'm so glad to see you back here, sweetie!

BTW, Blogger has made changes since you last posted. You now have comment moderation applied as a default. Could you possibly take it off for your dear commenters, please? Those squiggly words and numbers are really difficult for tired eyes to read. Thank you!

Gotta ask - is that LL in the first grill shot? Talk about losing weight. Looking good! Whatever you are doing for him, keep it up!

And you thought no one would catch you here.

Hugs, Sis!!

Hey Donna, I really need to back in the swing of blogging. I have no clue how to do this stuff anylonger! Let me see if I can figure it out.

And Sandy! Girlfriend! Nope, that is DD's significant other. LL is the one with the braid down his back. hahaha. Cute tush.
