Getting Caught Up
I am never very comfortable when I do that, but I just had to share some things I am very happy about today.
First things first. My daughter who has three children and is very busy but has managed to draw and write in spite of very full hands. One of the things I have loved about being a mother has been seeing my children far exceed anything I ever dreamed. Just so you know, in my head as I write this, I hear my grandmother's words,
"Aw well Kim, every crow's baby is the blackest." So I will stop.
A e-zine used her art work for their cover art. I am so excited and so very proud of her.The e-zine is called The Cross and the Cosmos.
We finally got the cubby box finished and mounted. Do you like how I always add "We" My husband did all of the work. I just tell him what is in my head and he figures out a way to make it.
I put all of my little treasures on it last night. I have such odds and ends.
I have old wooden sewing things and I put my rug hooks on it. I will change it as I come across things I have collected through the years. I even have a tiny little fish from one of my daughters birthday cakes. It is Flounder.
Just a bit of fun. Each thing though tells a story. None of it has much value but it means something to me. Each thing I hold makes me remember who gave it to me or where I found it like the old insulators that were for electric fence, next to the rooster, those were on all of the fences when we moved here. I have picked them up and saved them.
Have a lovely week.
