I’m Still Here!

If you are reading this, I want to thank you for waiting here for me to make an appearance. The last year has been busy. As you know from the previous post, my grand nephew became a large part of our lives a year and a half ago. We love spending time with him, and we take the opportunity every other weekend to spend time with him. We love him to pieces!

And just about a year ago exactly, tomorrow, I think, my stepdad came back into my life. (Without my mom, but that’s another whole story in itself). I love this man with all my heart. He is not the man I knew before. He is kind, loving, and he loves spending time with Louie and I, and my sister Nancy (his biological daughter) and her grandson, Elijah (my great nephew), and my brother Jack and his wife Polly and their children and grandchildren. 14195401_1097346570355612_6816757622297361580_o

‘Pop’, my brother Jack and I.15220127_1172436922846576_2323177202058664954_n

I love spending time with my sweetie whenever I can, although not much time has been spend on our motorcycle this year yet.18157623_1326963607393906_6705913775271200639_n

My little stinker butt Elijah is growing up so fast. He is 25 months old already! He calls me ‘Shell’ and Louie, ‘Lou-weeeee’. He loves us and we love him to the moon and back…18699863_1358496370907296_5954340905668791990_n

…but he loves his grandma the most. They act silly together, and her love for him just has no words. 18739087_1358479540908979_3288927218822166777_o

He is slowly starting to get closer to ‘Bompa’, and you can see by all their faces, that they love each other. (Father, daughter, grandson/great-grandson). I love seeing them all together.18951327_1370562736367326_4696226292699182368_n

We had our bathtub reglazed a month ago and changed the color from lavender to white.18519498_1349424788481121_4096342120792038814_n


And we changed out our bathroom countertop and sink from this to this.

We are also in the process of getting a backyard landscape project done. Louie’s boss and his family removed the old limestone after one of  the retaining walls fell down. Now we are just waiting for the contractor to come rebuild.18952626_1370097886413811_2479192470287929050_n



Our quilting group is on break until September. I haven’t done much sewing at all. I just don’t seem to have the time when I’m not working, or the energy after I have worked all day. It’s a vicious circle!

I am on Facebook, and post most days there. Posting things there seems quicker, and it seems most everyone has Facebook. If you can’t find me, shoot me a  message and I’ll find you. 

So that’s what’s been going on.

Thanks for stopping by!

I was thinking of you earlier today. As a matter of fact, I've been thinking of you all week. So glad things are going well for all of you, and that parts of your family are healing. Hope you are still stitching with your ladies. I've missed your blog posts.
