About Me

My photo
I'm a mother of four grandmother of seven and great grandmother of one. I have many hobbies and interests but gardening and rug hooking are my main interest at the moment. I live with my husband in the house that we built with the help of my brothers and have been married for 51years.

I've been so bad at posting and I've been procrastinating. I have tons of stuff happening but it all sound so ordinary and I get so tired at the end of the day. The weather has been crap but I have family, a roof over my head, heat in the house, food in the cupboard and warm clothing, a job to go to every day so I'll just have to wait for the petals that are supposed to grow outdoors and  show you what's blooming inside.

To see the pictures larger, just click on the photo.



Here is my Hoya plant, also known as Wax plant. The blossoms are just starting and I started to count and gave up after 65 as  there were too many and some were still quite small.  When the blossom are fully developed it releases an exotic perfume around 10:00 o'clock  at night.  I just love the fragrance.




Here is what I've done on my grandfather rug so far. If I was to do it over again, I'd prepare my wool better. There are still some different color tone but I have difficulty seeing the difference when I'm hooking.


I had hooked some small S shapes in the background and didn't like it. I pulled the S shapes and re-hooked the same color as the background.They appear whiter than the background because a bit of green wool dust still covers the background. I realized that I didn't hooked my initials and date.

He doesn't look much like my grandfather but he'll have to do. I think he looks a bit sad with his fat cheeks. I couldn't make his eyes look sideways like in the B/W picture.


The river in front of our house has filled it's bank. The water level went down a bit but I didn't took another photo. It's been raining cats and dogs so I don't know how it will affect the water level. So far we have been spared flooding.

That's it for this evening
Thanks for stopping by. I so appreciate it when you leave comments. Enjoy life even if it's TAX time.
