Updates 2020

Wow...I cannot believe I was gone from blogging for so long. 

Yes, I had my knee replacement and I am great...better than before. But now its spring cleaning time again. I changed a bit of my color decor for spring but I have some painting to finish before I post photos. 

Below is my granddaughter Paloma's latest painting of a family friend and her family. 
Paloma paints beautifully done.


I have been spending time sewing new toss pillows and decorating.



And my baby granddaughter started Veterinarian school.


Everything here in Ohio is good and we have great weather.

Completed Room

Hi everyone...

I am so fortunate to have the Lord guide me in all that I do. Pleased to see that my living room is finished. 

I just bought a beautiful side table for my recliner at a thrift store and it is like brand new. Once I cleaned it well and polished it I realized I did not need to paint or stain it and now the side table fits well in the living room.

Personal Info

Hi...

Its been a super busy last 4 months trying to get everything done before Nov. 10th. Unfortunately, I will be having another surgery...a complete knee replacement on Nov.14th.
I worked really hard for 4 months to clean out, organize and finishing the home decor that I started 2 years ago. 

I am happy to say all the decor, all the painting, and all the upholstering is finally done. Today I finished cleaning and organizing my home files and I also finished preparing my funeral service...no I am not dying...LOL!!!. It's an LDS way of life to always be prepared.

Now I can rest from all my labors until the 10th when my Mom arrives to help with my care and to help me give the apt. a light cleaning before the 14th. Endurance is a great attribute to unite together with faith, for this shall also pass.

I will be back next week.

A New Hobby 💙


Since I was a teenager, I always dreamed of learning how  to sew.  As I am getting older my yearning to learn this craft has gotten more intensive, so I decided it was time to learn. as a beginner I didn't want to spend a small fortune on one in case I didn't like it, so I bought a used one that is in great condition.

I already learned the basics and how to run this new gadget. So far it feels and looks simple. 

So now to mend some clothes, then blind hem some pants and hopefully try to make something.😁 I will see what happens. Wish me luck.I

Seasonal Allergies😷


I am a food allergy suffer and I have so much compassion for those who suffer from seasonal allergies.

I took this video while standing on my balcony. The pollen was horrendous. What a bad day for those inhaling it all😷.
