On The Road Again

I’m sure many of you are wondering why a woman
that’s spent the last month crying about how she
couldn’t wait to get back to her home, is now leaving to go on the road again.
It’s true I missed my home place, but more importantly I’ve missed seeing my parents and
my grandchildren more than our home.
 My mother had fallen while
I was away and had to enter a nursing home. My
father is ninety five now and although he still gets
about and still stays active he is becoming frail too.
So I’m at my daughters to
spend a couple of days with her family, then on my way to Iowa to see my folks and brother and sisters.
Many of you will remember the garage that went
from this…….
To this sweet cottage for my MIL last year. Tim has
now painted the front entry and is going to make
shutters for all of the windows while I’m away. To
tell the truth ladies, the guy has a honey-do list a
mile long! But they are all projects he ‘wants’ to do.

  As for my own projects, they’ll have to wait until I get home. Here are the sheets I’ve collected so far
for patchwork curtains. I’m thinking I may need
a few more, so wish me luck while I’m on the road in finding some.
Fortunately I have a sister that loves visiting the
re-sale shops as much as I do!
I hope you’re all enjoying the cooler weather that
autumn is bringing. We’re having cooler nights, but
warm days here. How has it been in your neck of the woods?
