I am probably the world's worst blogger only getting a post or two in every month but still I like to visit so many blogger sites and read up on what is going on in their lives. I guess I am probably a blog stalker! And although I have been remiss in my duties as a blogger I have had good reason....2009 has not started off as a good year and I was so hoping it would be better than 2008. First off my father-in-law died Jan. 15th and then we had the funeral with family from all over. He had been ill for a very long time so it was a blessing but hard none-the-less. Getting together with all the family was a lot of fun and too bad we wait until something like a death in the family before doing so. Then my mother-in-law was scheduled for surgery this past week to remove a tumor in her neck, a re-occurrence of head and neck cancer, unfortunately the news was not positive. The cancer has spread into her chest and they are not able to remove all of it so we are now trying to decide how best to proceed with care and living arrangements. We would like her to come live with us but she is adamant about going home to her own house, which I understand but don't know if it is realistic. I guess time will tell and things have a way of working out so will wait and see. Meanwhile while camped out at the hospital I have come down with a terrible cold so had to come home yesterday and will stay away until it is gone. I haven't had a cold in a couple of years so am bummed to have picked one up. So forgive me for not keeping up as I should but know that I am visiting my favorite blogs when possible and keeping up as best I can.
I love to garden, read, do scrap booking, and working on my beautiful old colonial home. I love to travel and have been fortunate to have been able to do so visiting many beautiful and interesting places, including France, Quebec City, Canada, Mexico and 46 states! I live with my wonderful husband and 2 of my children, and our 2 black labs Cordie and Bear.
