Long Absence

It's been a long absence.  I didn't realize this much time had gone by and a host of things done in my life. I'm not a very good journalist, that is for sure.  When I was young, I used to think.... "I'll fill up half a dozen journals!"  Alas, that has not come true.  Kind of sad when you think about it.  I don't know why it is, but, I let life come and go and nothing gets recorded. 

Many things have happened since last September.  We've celebrated several birthdays, some holidays, and just life in general.  Seen my daughter take her annual trip to Russia to visit the orphanage there, and a new trip that will draw her even more through the years to Haiti to do work and visit an orphanage there.  She loves the little children God puts in her life.  I see many more trips and many more visits in her future.

This spring, I've done some sewing for babies:  a newborn young man.... made a giraffe hat, with some snuggle blankets to match and burp cloths.  For a newborn young lady....  a onesie with a beaded necklace embroidered on it, along with a tutu to match, plus a rag doll.  Hoping she is loving those things. 

Some of the items you can look at my OwlishlyCute blog on Facebook.  Well enough of that.  I'm about to embark on some new adventures and will probably let my blog slide once again, but, if you happen to stop by, please comment so I know you have seen my blog.
