Just a quick hello and off into the day.  A little rusty here on blogging but here goes ... 

Our oldest son turns 35 today.  I am in awe.  Doesn't seem possible. My little premie, so tiny and now so grown.  Such a handsome man ... its ok for a mom to say that, isn't it?  (And its true too!)  My first baby who will be having a baby in a few months.  Younger son arrived in Afghanistan over the weekend and should be to his base today or tomorrow.   He is now eight hours ahead of us so as I'm getting up and going he's well into the afternoon.  Cross stitch is continuing to be my relaxation mode of the moment.  Again, as in crochet, there are so many generous people sharing such delightful patterns.  Have to get some pictures and post my newest Christmas and Fall stitchings.  I'm loving the small designs but am now looking for a large one to tackle, one that can be worked on over time in between crochet and small stitchings.

Blogger is still giving me some troubles.  I can't see who my followers are and worse yet I can't follow on other blogs.  I really hope this straightens out soon.

Time to start the day.  Morning prayer and coffee on the immediate agenda then off to work.  You will remembered in my prayers.

Sunshine and
blessings to 
 your day.

  6. Sending B-day wishes and prayers, too. :)

    It's so good to see you back in blog-land....you make it a much better place just by posting! :)

    Not sure about a big project...maybe a sampler? You could work little bits here and there but over-all it would be big. What about a birth sampler for the new little one?

    What ever you stitch, I know it will be pretty.

    Blessings to you and yours always :)

  7. I hope you will keep the flag on your blog in honor of your son. It's a wonderful reminder to all of us of those fighting for freedom and democracy.

    I'm about to give up on Blogger. I've been double-blogging for a couple of weeks now on both Blogger and WordPress. I just wish Blogger would get their act together so we wouldn't have to move.

  8. Happy Day to your son.. We share June together :))
    Thankyou for your prayers :))
