I'm Still Here

These last few months have been extremely busy. I just don't know where the time has gone. Well I do, but won't bore you all with all that has been happening.

I will share one item with all of you though. I took on an extra sewing job, which seems to take up a great deal of my spare time. I have been making drapery to cover unsightly areas in the class rooms at school. Gone are the days when our children are to be distracted in any way shape or form while in school. The Board of Education has stressed that anything that could distract a child's attention (I say stimulate), should be covered up.

The drapery has to be the same colour as the walls and so I searched long and hard. The closest I could get was a cream coloured broadcloth! I have 4 rooms left to do and hope to be totally done by the end of the month. Whew, remind me please not to take on a project like this again!!!

I am looking forward to getting out in the garden and just enjoying what is left of the spring. My flowerbeds are a disaster, and I need to make the time, between rain or snow to get out and work on them.

I am still trying to cook something new every week. Sometimes I succeed and other times what I serve is a total disaster.

This is my promise to all of you, I will make at least one post a week, and drop by to visit at least once a week as well.

I do have lots to share with all of you, projects completed, wonderful recipes, and updates on my life.

Everyone have a wonderful evening. God bless.


  1. Jackie, it's so good to see you back...I missed you.

    Making drapes for your school is a huge undertaking, I know what a excellent seamstress you are but I can only imagine how happy you'll be when the job is finished, then you'll have time to enjoy your garden...take care. hugs, Linda

  2. Wow ... that's a big project. But I bet they'll look wonderful. It's very nice to see you back!

  3. Hello Jackie, It's nice to read your post. Your were missed! It seems like with me when I don't blog for a few day or more, it's easier to stay away. I have decided to not blog as much because I get so much more done.

  4. I have really missed your posts, and am glad there is a really good reason you have been gone from here! You are such a blessing to your school to do this sewing job for them! kindhearted

  5. Sound like you are an ultra busy girl. Glad you are ok, was worried when you disappeared.

    Love the idea of trying a new recipe a week. I did that years ago and I've actully been thinking about doing that again.
