My husband of 17 years and I were caregiving for his parents for 16 years. We are alone again now and struggling to find out who we are and what to do with out all these huge responsibilities facing us 24/7. So we are quite Stressed Out as we haven't hit upon it yet. However I have faith that we will. Losing the 20 lbs I gained this past year after 2 weddings in two years, will be a step in the right direction and getting back in shape will help tremendously for whatever we find ourselves faced with as we intend to finally have some fun in life. Now Where did we leave it......

Thanks for commenting on my photos. I do lots of hand stitching and hooking and just love it. Hooking is really easy and I donot use yarn though you can...I use mainly recycled wool I cut from thrift store wool clothing. I even dye my own wool now. The rooster was the first design I ever drew myself..since then I mainly hook my own designs..but will hook a bought one if I really like it..I have a wool cutter so makes the cutting much easier. I did set up a rug hooking team but only 5 people there and it is mainly me posting..Anyway thanks again for the kind comments. emoticon

Thanks so much for stopping by! Oh and I love this arbor picture! I was trying to show off my ferns ha, they were all I have. Well I planted a few bushes. But I joined the garden club last year, so hoping this year I get a few more things established. Anyways, thanks for taking the time!
