invited me to join.
I wanted to tell you first about Kerin. When I first met her she was living in the Cottage on Main.
Always Fixin" never Sittin"
She is a wonderful decorator, a wonderful cook. In fact she always has wonderful recipes. She has just moved into a new house, Mill Hill Meadow and is in the process of decorating that house, ( I need to invite her to decorate mine.) The really cute thing that I found out is she has a beautiful Border Collie too. That was just a nice surprise. I hope if you have time you will run by and visit, I am sure you will be glad you did.
Now on to the hard part for me, questions about me. I mean what else is there to know that I haven't already told you but I will try to think of something.
1. What am I working on?
All that we have left in the garden is gourds, tomatoes and peppers. Which is fine with me.
This was what Ron picked this morning.
Primitive Stitchers Society. I hope to get to my Penny Rugs too. I also brought a huge stack of books home from the library.
2. How does my work differ in this Genre...?
I think what makes my work different from others is I have spent the last 25 years home educating our six children. Teaching them was my priority. I would also say it was my passion. Home educating became an adventure, and a calling. It consumed my thoughts and all of my creativity. My goals in life have been from the verses in Proverbs 31
She brings him good, not harm,
all the days of her life.
Her children arise and call her blessed;
3. Why do I write/ create what I do?
My work in my family is not finished. I still hold to these goals, what is different now though, I am able to sew, hook rugs, garden, and enjoy my family in a way I never dreamed. With 8 grand children, being a grandmother has given me new joys and new goals I never dreamed of in the beginning of my life. I am finding that the summer of my life to be one filled with golden light filled with blessing upon blessing every day.
When I was eleven years old, my Mom passed away. One of the things I wanted was a note or a letter or anything that told me she loved me. I knew she did of course, but it would have made her passing just a bit easier. I got a notebook not long after she was gone and started writing. I have never stopped. I have written my whole life. Even now, not writing for one day, I can't sleep at night because the voices in my head get too loud. Writing has been the only thing that keeps the voices quiet. I have thought many, many times that writing has saved my life. I can write down my thoughts, my prayers, my dreams. Then turn the page, and once again is a clean piece of paper to record life.
The first one I would like to share is my oldest daughters blog.
It is called Net Raptor.org My daughter Kessie is a published author, an artist, she is a real writer. She has four lovely children and cooks from scratch. Not to mention she manages to home-school her brood. She always makes me think outside the box.
The second blog I would like to share is my son William's blog It is called
Williams's Cool Writing School.
His writing always makes me laugh. It makes me think and keeps me up on the culture that I might not pay attention to or notice.
My Third blog I would like to share is a website. Megan is my daughter of my heart. My son chose her and I was so thankful to get another daughter who has given us grandsons. She also has a soap company that I am very happy to share Bumblewood Handmade She is a very busy lady who manages to run a business and home-school too.
I want to thank Kerin for inviting me. I don't think I have followed the rules exactly. I hope Kerin you don't mind. I appreciate you inviting me to come along on the blog hop.
Have a lovely Monday,
