It's About Time

...that I showed up, especially now that reading blogs is such a pleasant diversion. Each blogger should do his or her part.



Birthday Roses Drying

First things first: I am well and hunkering down just like the rest of the country. Are you working from home? Out of school? Out of work? (I sure hope not.) 

My son is still working at his office and has said that he'd prefer to buy a Hazmet hazmat suit rather than work at home. Ha! That boy! (The problem is not his family nor even his pets; the problem is the lack of internet power.)

The grands are home from school and their mom provided them with "life lessons" this past week. They were making meals, baking cakes, changing sheets, etc. I'm sure that they loved it.

I have heard from the other grands who seem to be just lying around. Their mother reports that she can't get a thing done.





It looks like early spring outside after a pretty mild winter. I can't complain. I mean I do, but I shouldn't.

The last social engagement was a week ago when I attended my niece's baby shower.


We're all pretty excited about the new baby girl on her way in just a few short weeks. Hope that I get to see her before she's six months old. 

I think that I promised that I'd show my sister's new laundry room in some old post or other. 




Last week it looked more like a garden room. After today, when the sink is installed right there, it will become a very functional space. Mostly, my sister will be overlooking her back yard and her brother-in-law's wood business.

Per Mrs. T's request




Edited to Add: Two more of the finished laundry room countertops and with the sink installed.


Other than that, I content myself with quiet pursuits. Reading mostly and keeping up with you.


Grandma Gatewood's story is inspirational. I will  not, however, be following her example, even if I am the right age to strike off on the Appalachian Trail.

Take good care, my friend, and hang tough. God’s got this.
