REBOOT: A Quilting Quickie

I finished the quilt for Grandbaby #2 in May. It’s bright and cheerful, just like the boy it was made for.

I took the quilt to church with me one Sunday morning and gave it to him after service. I think he liked it! We took a few more photos at lunch.



REBOOT: Let’s Catch Up

You know, in many ways, these last couple of years have been a very hard season; but it’s all been wonderful and good and I am blessed by all of it. In the course of about three months time, Dani got married and moved an hour or so away, Aaron graduated from high school and […]

Blessed Be

Life has a soundtrack. The soundtrack of my life is as eclectic as my reading tastes. A quick scan of my Pandora station list or the quirky variety of my iTunes account makes that an undeniable truth. Music plays all day, most every day, in my home. All kinds of music. Some of it forms […]

Beautiful Baby Boy – Welcome Grandbaby #7!

In case you missed the announcement on my Facebook page, my seventh grandchild was born this last week.


My seventh grandbaby!

He was a big boy, weighing in at 9 lbs. 5 ounces, but he’s perfect in every way.


I’m not buying his tale of woe.

He was trying to convince […]

Copper’s Day Off – Top Three Edition

The top three highlights of the day.

1 – We hung with the grandkids while Corin went in for a prenatal appointment. Grandbaby #7 will be here soon! I wonder if he’ll be as big of a cuddle-bug as his older brother? I hope so!


2 – We ordered new […]

The Heart of a Child

We’ve been learning about China on Thursdays. Corin and my six grandbabies try to visit every week on Thursday afternoon. We read. We try to do a craft project. They borrow books to take home. They play. Lots and lots of play!

This year, rather than just reading a random selection […]

S – A – T – U – R – D – A – Y






Unbelievable! (The recipe is here.)


As often as possible, Corin and my grandbabies visit us on Thursday afternoon. During the summer, the afternoons were spent in the pool. Now that it’s fall, we will start bringing our Thursday afternoons back to their original purpose of being a “library” and craft day.

Today, though, the weather was glorious and it just […]

Tardy Tamalie Pie

The Tamalie Pie recipe that I promised for today will be late. We were to have it for dinner last night, but Aaron took us out to dinner instead. Can I just say how much fun it is to have my seventeen year old son take the […]
