This dear soul

This old broad

Were married in Las Vegas, in the in a proper chapel way below the Strip. On the 21st July 2001, it was a 110 degrees Fahrenheit , which is darned hot. We had a small gathering of family from Utah, Hawaii, Texas, Washington State and California . And Alice from Australia. We went to Sam's town and they let us have our cake and reception there. We had buffet tea, I had lamb roast, James has roast beef among other goodies. We all had oodles of yummy food. Every one was happy and we had lots of fun. It was a great day for us. It was my 2nd marriage, and James 1st. I will find a photo of us on our wedding day and put on here. It was the best thing I ever did, marry this wonderful calm, gentle man who adores me as much as I adore him. We don't ever have cross words. That is because he is so patient. He spoils me with love and kind words.
Our anniversary was different here, brrr cold. We had a lovely day just being together, we enjoy being together, so much. We are off out for a meal for tea.

Birds One of my Loves.

There was a chattering of Musk Parrots in the air, so I went to investigate.

In the next door year was an apple tree, denuded of leaves, it is winter here, but full of Apples and birds, a flock of about 30. They were having a lovely time eating ,fighting, and just being . They love the apples , appropriately called Delicious.

You need to look closely, my camera needs another lens I think

All of a sudden they all as one looked to the left as in flew the enemy, who just wanted to annoy them, not even eat apples. The next week the tree had dissappeared. So have the parrots.

My Husband has a Mistress

My husband has been spending a lot of time in another world that does not include me. I am OK with it most of the time, but sometimes the "Little Green Eyes monster in me wants to get angry with her. She is his part time mistress. I say part time as the other part of him loves the cats and the Pup of my daughter then me. So I am not left out. Its a good job I am a good cook, or so he tells me. TEE HEE

I am back again

A few weeks ago, I decided it was time to try to sew again. The under arm movement wasn't too bad so into the sewing room I go. The old Elna had been playing up, so I fiddled and fiddled trying to get the tension right. I was sure it was cotton stuck in the bobbin case somewhere. ( Have since found out the needle was back the front, well D'oh!). So decided to get out the spare machine I have. It has been so long I had forgotten how to use it.
So I set it on the table and was looking up something in the sewing machine manual, when all of a sudden off the machine went , like a race horse in the Melbourne cup, sewing by itself.
The smell was awful!!!!! Like burning old sox. So here I was with he will and no way.
So My dear man suggested , I use some of the money I have been holding on to to buy a new machine. So out to Esmes we go and I come home with a new you beaut sewing machine. It threads itself and has many speeds and is light and sews like a dream. (I am in love with it) it is so quiet I even sew in the lounge room, in the warm. I have been very productive.
I made the quilt "circle of Friends"for Miss Milly , just 20 months too late .
I made it and quilted it on the machine. I am so proud of it . My first proper quilting!!

Then my dear daughter told us they were gettign a new puppy. Her name is Indy ( we have been baby sitting through the week, to help toilet train her. she is so good. Best baby I ever had. So Of course she needed a blanket. I had some Dalmation fabric left over from a cushion I made Al. So I just threw it together the night before we left, it wont win any prizes but it is her blanket and It looks better in real life than this. (She has a big brother Beau at home) The weather has been so cold and windy too , so needed to be kept warm.

The next day off we went to get Indy and here she is .

She sleeps with the tongue out, she barks and sucks and runs all in her sleep.

I think we like her a bit dont you?

It has been a while. Too much life. Radiation kind of did things to me that made me leave the human race for a while. Example Sleeping , yes it is possible for me to sleep 18 to 20 hours a day. I am just starting to wake up at 10 am. Some days I can do it earlier if I really have too, but I am to be seen hugging the couch most nights. So just keeping up with day to day things like laundry and sleeping in a clean bed are a priority.
Enough, I don't want to revisit there. It was all too hard.
But soon I will be doing the Doctors revisits to see what they have to say. I am feeling better. I have a bad back ( ruptured disc) and a knee that needed a choritisone injection, and joy I could walk without pain. But of course t his is all due to me being a big girl. Just ask the Doctors. What do you tell he skinny people who have these problems. "They have them for different reasons""
Oh really so why cant I ?? Cause you are overweight.
So if you are over weight loose it. as even a cold is blamed on being over weight.

I am back. sitting in the sun, sewing again after a log long time of not . James is getting an electirc wheel chair. soon, so I wont have to push him any more >>I hope . if we can get it in the van of course.
Life is good , love my kids , and my grandbabies. They make me happy. I am blessed!!
