May winding down....

Well with all the craziness in construction going on around here ..... I needed a small escape and whipped up a few smalls for my Early Works after all! They go live the evening of May 31. 
 Here's a couple and I might get time for one more little thang ;o)


I can't get my poor little brain wrapped around the fact it's almost June already!
The rains have been crazy and almost never ending. We've gotten about 11" in May so far and more today. I know there are those that are getting so much worse and I pray for all those caught up in the flooding.
Have a blessed day my friends!

Memorial Day and changes....

Well first off....

Hope you all have a safe and fun weekend!

There's been a lot of changes around here since I last wrote....
My 93 year old father in law had to be admitted to the hospital for almost a week.
Turns out, among other things, he has leukemia... but docs say it's a good kind (if there is such a thing), that it can be treated with a couple of pills a day.

So he's out now and staying at my brother in law's until we can finish up a bathroom for him at our house. His bedroom is all done and ready. Yep, there's some changes a comin'. But he's not bed ridden, he's in pretty good spirits and is ready now to come here. He has wanted to stay in his own home as long as he could.... well, we might be nearing the end of that... and I think he has his mind wrapped around it in a good way.

He might surprise us and go back home for a bit, but I can't see it being long. And he's lonely. My mother in law passed 4 years ago January.  We go to his house and visit, help him keep his home up, mow etc...and he comes here every Sunday for dinner after church.

That alone has been such an awesome experience for all of kids... their kids... FAMILY! We're a pretty tight family to begin with and this is our normal. I love all the memories, laughter etc., that have been created!

So I won't turn down any prayers for whatever the good Lord has in store for all of us.

I can do all things through Christ who gives me strength
Philippians 4:13

Blessings my friends!

P.S. I haven't had time to get anything created for my Early Works shoppe for June 1, but I still have a few little goodies on there... I've just lowered the prices for a little Memorial Day sale for ya!
