Hello I am back

Yes it has been a very long time. As most of you know, it was a very busy summer for me.
Then  in September I helped my youngest daughter and her family  move to Colorado and stayed for a couple of weeks.

That led to a process for me to decide  where I was going to live..I decided  to  accept  their offer to come live with them. yes I am blessed
Sadly that  was not an easy decision, as I  left  my oldest daughter and  two very special grand daughters  in Illinois  along with  family members and friends ,  that are a part of my every day living... For those that do not know me,  my family and dear friends are my life.

It took several weeks to  give away  , sell, and store  most of my belongings.and lots of packing.I was blessed with  good  help  and in time I was ready to make the move. So in November  my daughter and family  came to move me...

So  I am in Colorado, it has been great. the weather is not too bad  where we are,  my family is doing well here. And  my  family  back in Illinois  does a lot of face timing and calling...thank goodness for new technology  Speaking of technology, I do not have my desktop  or my awesome printer/ scanner, so  it is a new world for me  to learn  how to  simply  post on my blog...Then  my laptop died, so I am using one  from my daughter  as well as an Ipad she gifted me with...yes I am blessed

They say change is  good,  and I am trying... For those that know me. well, sometimes change is a big struggle  for me...I am trying,  slowly
As this is my second attempt  to post this  update on  this blog....

I am sad to say my crafting  supplies did not make the move,  as there was not quite enough room in the trailer ~ and my son-in-law thought I needed my bed and clothes more   lol
They are all packed and waiting until the time we can go get them...

Til then, Krista's craft area  is set  up...well kind of  sort  of...yes that is another story, are you ready for that???

Krista had  her  new craft room all set  up and  in order,  she was  excited... However  she learned a new  baby  was on the way,  and he needed a room...So   her craft room was emptied and sat up in a large  corner of their dining room... Functional, looks  good   and we are thankful.
And it did not take Krista long to find an SU consultant close by   Plus Krista and I have been to a couple of SU classes  out here  and  that  was awesome... So I will have a few things  to share

So  did  any of you  figure out  the best part of all of this??? I am going to be a grandma  again  insert a huge  happy smile...# 6  and the third  boy    currently  we refer to him as # 4  lol

So for now I will leave  you with this message, but I  will be back...  crossing my fingers and saying please God...I will share pics of where I live, and my family  and  creations   when I can

2014  was a year of many challenges, many changes...many prayers... and many tears ...

I hope you enjoyed the hot tea...maybe tomorrow I will have some banana bread to go with it
Thank you all that have checked in on me, and still support me...I  really appreciate  you all

See  you all soon,  bye  for  now

  1. Thank you for the tea. I am looking forward to the banana bread! :) Glad you are back, and you are even closer to me now!

  2. thanks, and where are you?? sorry my mind is on overload

  3. So happy to see you posting again. I kept checking, hoping. :) Sharon may not see your response. She is in Kansas... so 1/2 way between you and me.
    You know I am thrilled for you and really do understand the choice you had to make. What would we do without Facetime! Love and Hugs! Kel

  4. So happy to see your smiling face sitting on that front porch rocker with your cuppa tea! Sending hugs and blessings to all the family with this big change not only in your life, but theirs as well. I know that this new little boy will also be a blessing to the family as was Faith just a few short years ago. Everything has a season, so now is the time to concentrate on family and Krista and the new little one to come. Time will come for crafting again.

    1. Maggie, thank you so much~ there is a lesson in this I am sure
      Yes my season is for family right now... but I hope to put some me time in there as well I am blessed to have all of you understand

  5. Oh this post is so beautiful Soni! A new baby on the wonderful!
    Change is very hard for me also. I feel for you on that.
    Love the blankets on post after this one. Take care.....sipping hot tea here tonight. It is a bit chilly in the desert today.
