Oh my goodness! How long has it been? And how to leave the readers hanging? Are you out there? LOL I think about the blog often and what I need to share and post and the pictures I want you to see. I think a lot! :0 So today I will catch up with our grand daughter's wonderful journey and all the other good stuff going on at The Brod Abode. Guinevere Isabella was the phone call we got that day in February. She was to be born a month early and it was a wild ride for the next few weeks. But...........
Hubby Mike and I continue to adjust to living apart due to his job in another city. We had so much rain this spring and beginning of summer and severe weather. I was worried sick about his temporary living quarters in our fifth wheel. We all survived even though a tornado did hit fairly close to where my mother lives. God took care of her that day for sure. I managed to spend a few days down at "Mike's Place" this summer and the park he lives in and Howie and I enjoyed it very much. Lots of new smells for wee Howie and he championed being a trailer mutt quite well and we had a wonderful time. Especially at the cross stitch store I discovered! So the trip helped me get to stitchin' again.
SO looking forward to fall temps that are less than the humid 90s and triple digits. It's time to start decorating for this special time of year that kicks off the holidays officially for us. I have a great deal of decluttering and organizing to do as I've fallen off the housekeeping wagon the past several months. But I look forward to the challenge of picking myself up and getting in the game again. The work separation from Mike, my mom's surgery and the early birth of Izzy were all the excuses I needed to let go of everything I used to be a perfectionist about and allow the craziness of everything we were dealt take over. Now it's time to get serious, dust myself off and celebrate my favorite time of year.
I leave you with a few pictures of Howie's and my trip to the wonderful town of Keene Texas in June. xox
