ODE TO ME



 
Ode to My Mother
 
Every morning I wake up
And I think about your smile.
You are my encourager.
Day after day,
Week after week,
Year after year,
You put up with me.
And not that I am not there,
I seem lost.
You have given me a foundation
That I can stand proud upon.
You give me hope
That someday I can be
Whatever I want to be.
You are always there for me.
Even if I am acting extremely
Mean to you,
You are always there.
I wish that I
Could always be there
For you.
Because you were
And are always there
For me.
You are my light at the end
Of the tunnel.
You help me see the good in the bad.
You have shaped me
Into who I am today.
Thank you for everything
That you have done for me.
I Love You!
 
 
My darling daughter, whose picture is above, wrote this for me.  I cried when I read it and she says that she really means it.  I thought I would share it here.

Fiber Festival

Tomorrow, my bf Susan and I are going to the Cannonsburg Fiber Festival held the last Saturday of October every year.  It is here in Murfreesboro, TN and last year we had a blast.  There are spinners and weavers, knitters, crocheters and farmers with their sheep, goats and long haired rabbits.  Of course, all kinds of good food also.  Susan and I both have a drop spindle but she would like to purchase another one.  We have top whirls and I think she wants a bottom whirl.   While we are there her fiancee is going to help my dh with a job or two around the house and hopefully look at dh's truck so he will leave me the car every so often again. ~smile~  I can't wait.

This is my darling daughter helping me by cutting onions for the salsa. Isn't she cute. ~smile~
The above are my cookbook shelves that I had to take the cookbooks off so I would have somewhere to put my jars.  This is pickles, beans, relishes, pickled beets, salsa and tomato products.
Above is in my kitchen where I have dill pickles and strawberry jam.  These are only  part of it.  I have not taken pictures of the rest of it yet.

Road Trip

Yeah !!!!  It is finally here - my road trip.  My bff Susan and I are going to east Tennessee to stitch until Friday.  We stitch - needlepoint, cross stitch, knit - and never get enough time once school starts (she's a teacher).  Susan is on fall break and I had to go to east Tennessee to pick up dd so we took both and combined it.  Actually it was my dh's idea --love him for it.  So, off to a b&b we go to stitch Christmas presents for two days+.  I am taking two needlepoint and two cross stitch projects to work on - can't decide which one to start right now. lol  I have spent more time trying to figure out what to take them packing my clothes.  ~smile~

I will be back on Saturday or Sunday once I get back and recover.  lol  See you then.
