After ten years living in this house, and talking about having a new kitchen floor put down, it will finally happen this coming week. We have done a little here and a little there on this 1960's home and knew from the time of the sale that it did need lots of updates. So over the years, we've had the bathrooms re-modeled. A wall between the living room and the kitchen taken down. A beautiful huge screened in porch added on and now the flooring. So it has been slow but sure but has also been satisfying.
I think I've been making good use of my time as far as my stitching goes. Seems I'm in the groove now. I try to get an hour in at least each morning on my cross stitch and if not another few minutes in the evening, I'll crochet the brown around about four blocks. My progress on my cross stitch here and I'm loving the colors.
So I feel good about buckling down and working with my hands more. This time of year we stay quite busy outside in the garden areas, so it takes away from my stitching. We do though, as I said earlier, have rainy days and they're blessings indeed.
My sister has finally gotten over two bouts of pneumonia, and she's feeling great. So we started our walking together once again the other day, and did five miles. Down a back dirt road with nature all around us. Loving it, and with the walking and the Planet Fitness that I do, we should be good to go at the end of March for our Appalachian Trail start. I do feel like a kid again with the excitement of being on the trail. Here's a picture of my sister and I below. Georgia on the right.
I was checking on my tea herb garden yesterday and realized that I have three different colors of the Monarda! I always thought I had just one out there. Then I realized this morning that my rose garden out front was in full bloom once again.
It was a must to put this sign out last year. We have the sweetest little brown rabbit that visits at least a couple of times each day. I've been putting grapes out for him/her and I'm able to get quite close at this time.
Now I must let ya'll go this time around. The morning is young and there are the Hummingbird feeders to change out still. Ya'll be safe and be well until next time. I love each and every one of you. In the meantime remember to "feel the colors".
