The big 3-0!

Today is my baby boy's 30th birthday. I so wish I could spend the day with him but he is off following his dream. I'm proud of him and miss him at the same time. We will celebrate when he comes home for Christmas.
Love you more than you can ever ever know, Jason - you will always be my baby boy. I hope you have an awesome day!

Happy birthday, Ashley!

Wishing my beautiful daughter-in-law a happy birthday today.

The nerve of some people. This little pot of faux (sounds better than fake!) flowers was sitting right outside our front door on top of a little green stand. Noticed the stand was missing yesterday. Can you believe someone would just walk right up to the front door and take it? They also took another (live) plant and plant stand. Know they were there Monday night since we sat out on the porch handing out candy. I guess someone came too late for candy and thought they would just help themselves.
We are now in the process of installing cameras.

Unpacked my scissors today!

From my front porch

It's nice outside today so I thought I would sit outside for a little while.

We put the barn quilt squares up over the weekend. I have a spot for one more - already ordered and will be waiting for me at quilt festival!

A little fall

I'm not much of a  decorating mood - not many flat surfaces to display stuff at the moment - but I was unpacking a box the other day and came across some fall stuff so I plopped some fabric pumpkins

and a little scarecrow up on the mantle.

Boxes, boxes and more boxes!

I wish I could tell you that all the boxes are empty and everything had found a new home but I can't say that. :(

I did find one box with stitching goodies in it.

Not that I have a place for them or time to  use them at the moment.

I posted these two pictures on Facebook. My sister said I have a problem. Huh? 

I've opened all the boxes that were marked either sewing or craft room but I haven't found my framed stitcheries that were hanging in there. The only boxes I can find that I haven't looked through are the ones that have hubby's name on them and I didn't pack those so I know they aren't in there. Guess I will have to go upstairs and see if he took a wrong box up there. They have to be here somewhere. I'm pretty sure that would have been a box I moved and didn't let on the moving truck. I've been thinking I must have put them in the storage unit but we emptied the last storage room yesterday and I have looked through those boxes. I'm trying to keep calm but if they have been lost I'm not going to be a happy camper. (I've found a few things that were broken but I have no way of knowing if it was during move #1 or move #2. Thankfully they have been things that weren't terribly important.)

Time to get back to unpacking. The chaos is doing a number on my anxiety and that's not a good thing.
