I'm not sure what that word means, but I like the sound of it. Sounds like "rest-just for spite!" I am in WV, now. I came to check on the folks and return my Dad's truck. I brought DS #2 with me and DD #2. We found a light dusting of snow on the ground- and the scene out their back window is very different from my wide open spaces. DH and the rest of the kiddos are joining me in a few days. I have a little bit of down time while my dad has some tests run and sees the Dr. I thought about going along and then I said, as my boys do, "Stink it!" I'm stayin' home. I am constantly trying to break them of that bad habit of using worthless words, so don't tell them I do it all the time, please. My Mom has an ergonomic keyboard and it is demonstrating to me how I have a very off-balance way of typing. Not a newsflash. But at this rate, it is going to take me ages to complete one blog! keep leaving out the middle of words. giggle.
Of course, I brought some sewing with me- and my FW. You know, several projects. And I am hoping to get some pictures of some of my Grandmother's quilts while I am here. She loved using old wool coats- very cool. I wanted to thank everyone for your encouraging words the other day. Sometimes, you just need to holler a little bit and then regroup. This next week, here in the wilds, is my version of regrouping. The stream is rushing past their barn-yes, they live in a barn, and I can hear a crow in the distance. The fire smells so wonderful and homey and my mom is the queen of caffeine, so I have lots of teas to choose from! I'm going to sew some and cook some and show my mom how to blog. Maybe get my dad to smoke some venison- know he will once the boys start in on him- you'd like it, Judy. Just relax where I don't have to do anything. Maybe not possible, but I'm gonna give it a good try. Thanks for listening!
