Well, I'm here.

And while I promise myself, and anyone who wants to follow this, that I will post regularly and share my thoughts and daily happenings, I usually fail! LOL!

So, a tad about me and my lifes goings ons.

I'm married to my soul mate, Chris. In August we will celebrate our 28th wedding anniversary. We have 7 children. 2 girls followed by 5 boys. Our older kids are...well...older! 18-27 years old. Our 2 youngest are 5 and 7. We also have 4 beautiful granddaughters, 3 of whom are older than our youngest 2 boys! See what kind of ride you are in for here?

I love crafting of all sorts. I scrapbook, sew, embroider by hand (want to learn to use my machine but I'm afraid! LOL) , quilt, crochet, loom knit, dabble in photography, cook, bake, garden and whatever else I can find to try out. I'm fairly decent at sewing, made a couple prom dresses and they turned out gorgeous, tho they did turn me off taffeta and tulle @@
I adore roses and grow them well, tho have none at the moment due to the 20something trees in the yard blocking out the sun they adore.

We live in Clarksville, TN now. I do love it here...but really REALLY miss Mount Sterling, Kentucky. My DH and I were born, raised, married and raised our 5 oldest in Roseville, Michigan but the economic situation forced us to abandon our home there and move to Kentucky. I quickly adapted (about 3 days) and discovered that I am a country girl at heart. I loved watching the cows and horses in the farmers field across from our house. The smell of fresh mown hay and fresh turned soil was the predominant fragrance no matter where in town you were, even the WalMart parking lot. The stars...billions and billions of stars there for the looking.

There are many things to love about our present home tho. We have deer, single and pairs and herds that wander thru our yard. Wild turkeys entertain us almost daily. The birds are so very colorful and the squirrels love playing in the front yard just to make our terrier a nervous yapping wreck.

I don't miss Michigan. Roseville has turned to a concrete jungle and the only time you smell something good is when your neighbor does a load of laundry.

yes, I'm a country girl. A regular old Betty Crocker, Martha Stewart, June Cleaver type. Minus the skirts and ultra tidy appearance and million dollar mansion of course. But Hey....I'm only human.

More later...
