A Quick update!

My apologies for being gone for so long and not reading blogs! A lot going on here. Jack is in pain much of the time and often has to crawl up the stairs instead of walking. Allergies are making me miserable too! Much more to tell you in a bit. I had a great time at my brother's for my birthday. We laughed and talked and had a wonderful lunch! He gave me a picture of our mom and pictures he had made of Bozz.

Bozz is doing great and loving life with us. He is a nut and a never ending source of laughs. He loves to tip over glasses and has made several messes doing so, also managed to fall in the toilet once. It is always something with him!


 










Now for the big news! We found out our Priest will be retiring any time now but it may be a couple years, maybe not. And the house will be used for the new priest. So rather than waiting to move, with our health and all we are moving now. Next month to be precise. 

Now for the really big news! We are moving back to Missouri.Got a ground floor two bed two bath apartment in Joplin close to Webb City. My brother's health is not good and often he has to come to Joplin for surgeries and such. And it has been hard being so far from him. We move in November.

I feel God has led us all this time when we moved to Arkansas. He had it all planned for us to come here, join the Orthodox church, repair my relationship with my brother and move home again to Missouri. Believe me this has been a very hard decision and many tears have been shed and, of course, lots and lots of praying! We will be attending a small Orthodox chapel in Joplin so that is good. And I will be closer to a blogging friend on here who lives close by that I care a lot for! I am sure we will soon meet at last as we have wanted to for so long.

So thanks for visiting. Huggles and blessings.

Short post.

Hello friends. Wanted to get a post end before the month slips away today. I was sick all last week and today a migrane. But here is a little post anyway!
My brother Mike and his foster baby girl. She is a sweetie and full of her self. Eight weeks old this week. The bigger kitty is Flower.



Going to spend my birthday next month with Mike in Missouri. Have not seen him for eighteen years. We talk and text pretty much every day, several times a day.
I am retying the Perfectly Imperfect quilt to take to him and making him and afghan too.
Now enjoy some Bozz pictures. The boy is always up to something. Today he pulled a full glass of coke on himself, his toy, the ottoman and the carpet.












Thanks for visiting. Huggles and blessings.

I have returned!

Hello, hello! Not a lot of stitching to show but there is some. I am trying to finish this up as I am really very close! It is called Family of change by Frank O'Randle. I had to search and search to find the skein of navy I needed to finish it. Bozz is being sure to help me with it!

Jack is still working away on his baby quilt. Sorry no picture. Mostly I was working on a bunch of crosses hearts, and bookmarks. Still have angels and more crosses to make. Here is my messy little corner with ttting and crochet little projects.
A few weeks back after a service we were greeted by these precious folks who came by to sing chants with us and we received communion which was a blessing. From left to right Kouria Marilyn, Tom, Father John, Anasia, and her dad Jeremy.
Last week I bought a shamrock and planted it on Sylvia's grave. Eventually, it will be a lovely garden of shamrocks and hostas.
Last week, Nicole brought us this lovely Pascha basket. How fun and we act like kids at times and play with the flute that was in the basket! What great blessings God gives us.
Our sky last night as storms rolled in!
We had carolina wrens nesting in the broken fan on the deck. Should have replaced it already, but they were a joy to watch. This is one of the parents trying to get them to leave the nest. We have purple martins and robins nesting on the front porch.
Jack and I had an outing today and went to a second hand store that we really enjoy! I got this mirror for the half bath for sixteen dollars and a brand new light for the dining room for twenty five dollars. Sorry no picture of the light.
And now for Bozz news. He is becoming quite the fella! The fear aggression is gone now and I am so glad I did not give up on him when it was so bad. He is getting more affectionate every day, meows more, cuddles, loves and is a total nut!
