A new place for some wool.

There are some changes going on around here. One of the changes involves moving the wool to a new area. We are finally using some of our "finds". These are two ladders that were in the trash. We also brought home some old barn boards and have had them resting in the basement, waiting for their new start. Today they became my shelves.
This area is in our basement, close to our laundry area. I am making room in my craft room for my mom's things. She will be moving in as soon as our room addition is completed.

She loves to sew, quilt and rubber stamp just like I do. She wanted to keep her craft stuff with mine. Sounds good to me. So last week we found a spot for her sewing machine. Cleared off the craft work table and made some room. This is going to be fun. We have always motivated each other and now we will be under the same roof. I am excited for what the future holds.

Thanks for stopping by my little site. I am hoping it won't be so long til my next post. Hope you are having a nice holiday. Lisa

I just love these flowers

 Well now that spring has definately sprung in ohio, I just couldn't wait to put some posies around the house.
 These flowers just make my heart happy when I look at them.  This wooden box sits on my porch railing.
These little beauties are in a wooden chair in the front flower bed.  I hope all is going well in your neck of the woods.  I have been stopping by your blogs, just haven't had much to talk about.  I thought I would get the ball rolling eventhough I don't have anything exciting to say.   Thanks for stopping by.   Have a good weekend   Lisa

Things are looking up!

I am so relieved that things are starting to turn around at the Abbey House. January has been an aweful month for my husband and I and for my mom as well. Just everything was going wrong. I am not going to go in to it. I just am happy to say that I can see the light at the end of the tunnel. My mom is doing better, Larry and I are not sick anymore. Ohh happy day!

I hope things are going well in your neck of the woods. I hope you are staying warm wherever you are. Today was in the 20's, yesterday the teens and tomorrow in the 40's....no wonder we are all sick. hehe. Have a good night and thanks for stopping by and listening to my rambling. Lisa

Well, the christmas decorations are put away.

Today I took a day off. I spent most of the day putting the christmas stuff away. I put things up in a different place just to make it feel like I had some new stuff. hehe. The funny thing is that that simple trick works on my little mind.

I will be happy when things get back to normal. Do you think they will? The first week of the year has not been the greatest. We found a new home for Trixie. It really felt like we were failing....we are used to rescuing animals not giving them away. But it just wasn't going to work with Trixie(the parrot) She would squawk all day if she wasn't let out of the cage and when she was out of the cage she would bite us so that we would be afraid to let her out around my mom. When she moves in it would be awful to put her thru noise all day. We found a wonderful bird lady....she has so many awesome birds. She said she would take trixie and we dropped her off on Jan. 1. The next day she called and said trixie had died. She hadn't made another sound after we dropped her off. The next morning she squawked really loud and she got her out of the cage and put her on her chest....and she just died right then. I just feel so bad that we let her down.

The next day Larry recked his company truck. Thankfully no one was hurt...just the sign at the side of the road. Still not a great week.

Sunday, Maddie had another seizure. It only lasted about 8 minutes and she has been great ever since. I know things could be so much worse.....I just wish they would be sooo much better.

The contractor comes on wed. to give us an idea about the room addition. Hopefully, that will be some good news. Cross your fingers. Sorry if this has been a downer of a post. I do feel better just to type it and get it off my chest. Thanks for listening. I hope things are going well for you in your neck of the woods. Thanks for stopping. I will have something fun next time....I promise. Lisa
