Ah!  Spring!  Finally!  I hope!  It has been a miserable winter.  Thankfully, everything has made it through, no worse for wear, including myself.  I will say, hauling hot water out to the animals just about did me in but there are plans for a new barn with electricity and water.  Lordy, Lordy, we need it.  The ladies have sure been enjoying the warmer temps.  They've been laying 8 - 10 eggs every day.  That is a blessing for sure.  I had to buy eggs, this winter, for the first time in five years.  That was tough.  We don't like store bought all.  No taste and filled with lots of gunk that I do not want in my body.  Yuck!  So I only used the purchased eggs for baking.  No bacon and egg breakfast's for us.  Eating that first fresh egg was like heaven on earth!

I've been doing quite a bit of sewing.  The grand-daughter's birthday is coming up and I've been making lots of sundresses, shorts, and summer nighties.  Got to make all these machines pay for themselves.  A couple of years ago, I bought a BabyLock sewing machine and I love that thing.  I would marry it, if I could!  Such a good machine but it cost me a bundle.  Then last year, I decided I needed a serger and an embroidery machine.  Another good size chunk of change.  All of them have sat idle for a while so I thought I better make them pay for themselves before my Mister decided to give them to Goodwill.  He might even get the idea to take over my craft room and I just couldn't let that happen!  Anyhow, I've been going at it, full steam.  Of course, now my shoulders hurt from sitting in one position for so long... ;-)

Well, that is my update.  Uneventful as ever!  I guess I will get outside and plant some Irises and 4 O'clock's, today.  I'm definitely not sitting in the house when it is 70* outside!  Have a good one!


  1. Dear Mrs. G ... Oh my ... so nice visiting you! You have such a homey "space" here. We too are enjoying a beautiful day here in Kansas. 75 wonderful degrees! Feels delicious after such a long, long winter! I think Spring Fever has set in! Sweetest blessings for your week! Hugs ♥ Teri

  2. I couldn't locate your email address, but I'd love some help when it comes time to taking things over there like my plants and such. Is there a way I can contact you? I will make sure you get something pretty for your efforts!

  3. Thank you for offering to help Brenda at Cozy Little House. I'd be there too, if I could. However I live in Virginia.. I'll be thinking about all of you on moving day.

  4. Hi Mrs G, I came over from Brenda's blog. Bless you for your kind heart! I understand about the store bought eggs, don't like them, but have to buy them often. Now that our spring markets have started back will be able to buy them there, and we get them sometimes from our daughter (but she lives 70 miles away). I commented because I really wanted to ask what kind of embroidery machine do you have. I really want to buy one since I have retired and have more time for sewing and have the 4 grands. By the way, love your blog.! MaryJ
