Back again!!

in progress
Well it's been a long long while since I wrote on this blog!! I have been busy with life lately and  just haven't taken t he time to sit and catch up !! Lets see since the last time I wrote, Grandma has been in the  hospital,back home in the nursing home while she got a new kitchen and back home!  Now she is waiting to go to a rehab rest home for a few weeks to try and get her to walk better again. My sister-in-law went over to Scotland to check on her mother and Grandma while all this was going on as she is the only one left that is well enough to travel such a distance.   So I felt she really needed something special for a thank you. she also does all the calling to the dr.s, carers and things like that while I take care of the family calls  It works out pretty good we have got in the swing of things now@!!  
Any way I decided to make her and my brother a lap quilt  well..........


back material
DONE!!  



It started out a lap quilt but as it progressed we realized it was a lot bigger so it was turned into a king sized quilt!!









My Son Kyle and his girlfriend RonaKay celebrated
their two yer aniversary and had their pictures done at JC Penny. This is the one they gave to us.
On Tuesday Ronakay turned 21 yrs!! Won't be long now until Kyle does as well. It's hard to believe they
are that old already!!





Our poor Daisy (not yet 2 yrs old) went blind due to glaucoma . We had her first eye taken out and the second eye treated. The specialist said she would have maybe 3 years before she would go blind all the way. Needless to say he was wrong.  by the end of the next month  she lost her other eye. We really had a hard time deciding whether to put  her to sleep or watch her deal with being blind but our won vet  counseled us and we decided to give her a few months and see if she adjusted with her being so young.  So glad we did as she is doing great!! She still runs the house , plays with the other dogs comes and goes down the stairs outside and up and down on the furniture!! It was hard with the cone on but after that came off away she went!!  We have a harness for her and she gets hooked to it if I have to leave her alone outside at all that way she can't get near the pond or the clutter in the yard. Usually Gizmo is on her little leash out there at the same time and the other dogs are loose in the yards so she's not alone.  It seems to be working out really well.  the hardest thing I think is I can't move my furniture around anymore and I can't leave anything down where it doesn't belong really just child proofed the house and  that seems to have worked.  We got rid of the reclining couch we were scared she would get hurt  and we got a small couch from walmarts until the beginning of the year then we will get a new couch and a mans recliner for my husband  I think by then she will be ok to have the reclining part up.

We have finally gotten all the chichens in one pen now in the front yard and the old pens torn down and cleaned up. we still have to move the kennel that we fixed up for the geese and get them moved into it but that will probably be next year!! Allen has been still getting the damaged trees cleared from Hurricane Ike only a few more in the back section to take down and clear away.  Then we can see about finally getting the fence put back up in the back and re fixing the fencing in the front.  We might be having a lot of dirt moved in the back and front before the fence gets put up to level the ground  and get it ready for garages and pool. Then only to start the repairs on the house !!!!

Well I need to go now and finish getting the house cleaned. I have wash to do yet and the kitchen to finish tomorrow I will do the livingroom , hall and kyles bathroom I have really let the house go this last two weeks!!!
well hope you all have a great weekend and I will try and write sooner next time!!!

Happy Halloween  !!
