These past couple of months have been extremely hard. Having to make the decision for Ellie when she was still so bright in herself nearly totally broke me. John is still struggling with balancing his meds to have some sort of life. Breathing is often quite a challenge for him especially first thing in the… Continue reading A Catch-up Round-up.
Oh my! Where did October go? Mind you, if I spend a little time looking back through, it was a good month. John and I spent a lot of time pottering around, slower than normal, starting to put the garden to bed for the winter, always quite a long chore anyway. We have some huge… Continue reading On to November!
In a fuel shortage we have probably clocked up more miles these past few weeks than ever! There has been a long list of hospital appointments for both of us.

You can almost hear the plants wondering if it's safe to get on with things now! Lots of time has been spent in the… Continue reading Garden and Golf Steals June!
The rickrack, on second ordering, finally arrived! I had been up into my huge Cword bag and found the fabric that wanted to be with the reindeer. I have plenty of Scandi types but the one that elbowed it's way to the front was this red and white stripe! For some reason it works for… Continue reading And on into May
