About Me

My photo
I'm a lover of vintage times and simple elegance of another era. I'm waiting a while for my special little farmhouse. While I'm waiting, I'm making good use of my time creating lovlies with my crochet hook n thread or yarn, and baking and cooking from scratch for my family.

"When you arrive at the fork in the road- take it" -Yogi Berra

After 1 1/2 years of unemployment, my husband is going back to work.  It is a full time temporary position, which we hope will lead to somthing permanent, and if not at least we can catch up after being on unemployment during this time. We are thankful for that. And see where this road takes us, we already know where the road we are on is going... 

As for me, I will be returning to the role I had before unemployment, chauffer,shopper,cooker, you get the idea.My husband picked up alot of slack during this time, as he resumed the household duties and I went to work, it kept him busy and gave me a break, which is now over, except that I will still be working  outside of the home as well...

I'll still be working until midnight on those night I still have to work, and be up to get the boys off to school and begin the day....I'll be putting in long ones again...7a-12a.  I hope to be with you all each day, and as I try to find my way back into a routine again, I hope to be visiting and sharing, and of course moving the hook....Better use of time and schedules will be required.

So please know that I am around, and will chat when I can. This all starts Monday.

Things change, moving forward with Grace......Thank you for keeping us in your prayers and thoughts
it is appreciated.

Thank you all very much ladies..for your kind words and prayers. Looking back, he has kept a bridge to the next place so we can get there...and so it will be with this bridge...He never closes a door that he doesn't open the window. I am grateful...and humbled....
