Getting Stuck (Little of This and That)

I keep wanting to write a new post and I keep getting stuck.

So - here goes:


I haven't really been sewing much, instead I've been focusing on grieving.  I think that's just the right thing to do; take my time grieving.  And since this started as a sewing blog - I feel I should mostly post about that.  And of course the way blogs work is people mostly post about good things happening in their lives.  Not death!
Of course with Mark's death, and then my Mom's - what do you thing is most on my mind?

On a different note:
My baby sister sent me this picture taken a couple years ago.  She is on the left, me on the right.
We always have so much fun together.  In fact we decided to go camping together at the end of August.  
Then my big sister (sorry I don't have a picture of her) decided to come out to California and spend some time.  So now she will be going with us!  Is that cool or what?

And you know little Serena thinks she will be going away to Mission Training and then off to some foreign county.  (Yeah, well it looks like she might be right about that!  She's raised almost all the money.)  She will be leaving in September.  
Here's a picture of Serena when she was little with her Daddy. She was as cute as a button. 
When they are little you have such high hopes for them.  I'm so happy with the person she has grown up to be.

Serena is also teaching Marzipan to play soccer.  Yep - it's possible because Neptune does.  She will field the ball, keep it rolling to make a goal, or chasing it down.  The idea is for her to push with her nose - not bite the ball.

Here's Marzipan's first lesson

Marzipan is a toy poodle - we had just gotten her groomed partly because I wanted her to look like a poodle. We were still at Petco, when a man came by and asked what kind of dog she is.  
Uh...that didn't work out - I guess she still looks like a mutt.

My Last Picture:  
 We were swimming and I look over and there is my oldest daughter, she is swimming around like this!  
(Really, you wouldn't know by her actions she's the oldest!)

Well, lookie here - I was able to write a post after all!

Happy Stitching,
Linda

  2. You post about whatever you wish, Linda; it is always lovely to visit your place to see how you are and what you have been up to. The grieving process will take a long time. How wonderful to go camping with your sisters; that will be the best thing for you and how fun for you all. Your Marzipan is so sweet and so clever. Have a wonderful time with your sisters. Take care Linda. Xx

  3. Hey Sweetie, you post about whatever you're feeling. Life is real. It's not always about sunshine and unicorns and quilting. You're one of the friends I've made online, and I want to read about anything you want to write about. Hugs.....
