My Grandmother

Sunday, September 20th, 2009

My Grandmother went home to be with the Lord yesterday morning. She had been ill from a cat bite and in the hospital for awhile. She was home and healthy for about 10 days. She fell yesterday morning and died shortly after. No one is quite sure of the actual cause of death–age mostly.  She […]

From Outside the Frame

Friday, September 18th, 2009

It’s been a few weeks since I was able to share links with you. I didn’t really collect them either because I was on the old computer. So without further delay, here are some links I enjoyed this week. 76 Reasons why you should avoid sugar ( I know, I know!) I found this on […]

Boy-sterous Living by Jean Blackmer~Book Review

Wednesday, September 16th, 2009

Boy-sterous Living Celebrating Your Loud & Rowdy Life with Sons by Jean Blackmer. I love mothering a boy. Sometimes he leaves me bewildered and unsure of how to parent him–especially by myself!  But I so enjoy having a boy in my life. I especially like reading books by parents with older boys. They have so […]

Laundry Tips~Works for Me

Wednesday, September 16th, 2009

When I started selling on Ebay, I learned lots of laundry tips. Here are a few I use often. 1. I wash on cold unless it’s sheets, underthings, and towels. 2. Add 1 Tbsp of Dawn dish detergent to the water and use 1/2 as much laundry detergent as you’d normally use. It really works […]

Knitting for the Nephew

Tuesday, September 15th, 2009

Isn’t this a pretty little blanket? My sister in law doesn’t read my blog (at least I don’t think she does!) so I think I can put a preview here. I’m enjoying knitting for him and thinking up all sorts of things that he has to have! It wasn’t so fun when I had to […]

Back online

Tuesday, September 15th, 2009

I think I’m back in business. It’s been at least a month or more that I’ve limped along with a computer that didn’t cooperate. I feel very out of the loop but that’s ok. I’m not going to worry on catching up on comments and I hope you’ll forgive me. I’ve been reading but not […]

  I’m late in posting this, but I didn’t want the day to go by without remembering. James and I are spending the weekend with my brother and sister in law. He’s a football coach at an area high school ant tonight we went to the game. We stood in a moment of silence for 9/11. Then […]

Love Letter

Thursday, September 10th, 2009

Years ago Lee left me a note on the table saying he’d be home late and was bringing home fish for dinner. The back page of the note said, “Love you, Lee”. I hung  the note inside my cupboard door where I can see it often. Over the years he was gone, I often stood at […]

Works for me~ End of Season Tomatoes

Wednesday, September 9th, 2009

(I’m not putting up the logo this week. I’m on a Windows 98 dinosaur computer and it’s pretty slow and tempermental!) At the end of the season, when the frost comes, go to your garden and pick all the green tomatoes. Put them in brown paper bags in one layer. Fold down the tops of […]
