Update

The last 10 days have been a blur of activity.............  A week ago Friday Jason and Kim came for dinner.  I fixed chicken pastry.......  No, I did not roll my own.  Yes, I do know that it is so much better but time did not permit.....  In fact it was a last minute decision and threw together just what I had in the freezer..........


A week ago Saturday was the baby shower.........  I finally got the gifts wrapped and ready and myself dressed and away we went.  Teresa is an exceptional hostess and it was a delightful event........  My first family baby shower in over two decades and a good time was had by all..........

I spent the rest of the week in home chores.......  I got more pictures hung.....  Just a few more feathers in the nest........  When I hang groupings or pictures that must be hung side by side I cut out the shape on freezer paper and mark where the hanging wire would be........  Then I can tape them to the wall to get them exactly as I want them to be.............
When they are hung they come out nice and even..............I got the four seasons hung in the hallway.

And the Welcome that Joyce made as a 50th anniversary gift for my parents hung in the guest room....


Mama had these Williamsburg Prints hanging in her dining room for a long time.....  I put them over the bed in the guest room...... I don't have bedspread or dust ruffle for this room yet so pillow cases to match a quilt will have to suffice.....  No need to do it all at once....  After all, little and often fill the pot.....

Last week at this time we were on the way to meet Jean and Bill........  We met them in Danville which is half way for each of us..........  We needed to replace the poinsettias with spring flowers....

Rebekah had come on Sunday and she went with us to Danville.  Then Rebekah and I spent the rest of the week baking and planning............  We baked 2 cakes, three batches of scones, two kinds of cookies, homemade rolls and biscuits.........  We visited with neighbors, knitted on our socks and talked with people stopping by to visit with us............
Saturday was Amanda and Matthew's house warming.........  Another grand time had by all.........

Now this week I must tackle the work in the yard.........  Maybe I will remember to take more pictures....

  1. Hi Susan... I am so happy for you to be close to your family... I just love what you are doing with the pictures you are hanging... The four season pictures, are they cross stitch or are they needle work? I just love them and would love to find them to do... It is great you had a great time at both functions... Hugs :)
