We're going to duct tape Mrs. Helen, my mama, to a chair today! She doesn't know how not to be involved or sit still. She use to tell me all the time as a teen, a hard head makes for a soft behind. Me thinks she needs to follow her own advice.
Last week when my sister and bil came to tear out the panelling and bathroom, my mother was still trying to help out. She had already washed down the basement floor to rinse away the gunk left behind by the sewage water all by herself a few nights before. She puts all of her children and grandchildren to shame and nor are we as healthy as she is. God is good, eh?!
Here is my BIL who worked his tail off...and he is not a young man despite what he says ;)
Prior to all this, I spent a day at a sewing retreat with some wonderful friends and I meant to share some photos-
This is Sherita's sister who visited from nothern Indiana...one of her projects was this adorably cute dress she was making for child in her family. And below is Rhonda, working on a pillow case with a golf theme for her husband...and below is what I worked on as well as the goodies I picked up at the 50% sale at a quilt store that is closing.
Here is the piece I have at hand that will be finished with hand stitching.
Another saving grace has been the kindness and thoughtfulness expressed by my sisteren bloggers and friends. In addition to the books being replaced the greater benefit is the inspiration I've received which motivates me to aspire to be a stronger, better person. For this I'm most grateful!
