Time Flies

It's been a while since my last post. On the date of my last entry my dad passed away. I really don't know what to say or write about it at this time. I kept thinking there were things to say but for time being, I'll just keep the thoughts as my own.

Other things have been going on these past few weeks. The boys last day of school was yesterday and so begins the long summer of "I'm bored, why don't we ever do anything, can't we go somewhere" blah, blah, blah. If they don't watch out I'll send them to my mother for a few weeks and they'll be very happy to come home and sit around our boring house.

I finished my part of a sewing project and when my friend finishes her part I'll post a picture. It's one of those things where I said, "Oh I can make on of those" forgetting that I have no skilz to speak of. This is a thing for the little girl next door. I wasn't sure she'd be happy with it until I showed her the inprogress item and she was thrilled. So pictures to come in the not too distant future. My success with that item has me finally getting up the courage to sew the flipping skirts I've been wanting to make. So maybe this afternoon I'll suck it up and get those done. The patterns are fairly straightforward. I also need some new "lounge pants" in summer fabric instead of my winter flannel so maybe I'll make a pair or two of those, need to get some fabric.

So life goes on, crafting continues, the sun still shines, and the children still whine........

I'm sorry to hear about your dad. No matter how grown up we are, inside we're still 'daddy's little girl' and he's still our hero and losing that hurts...

Sorry to hear about your dad. That's a tough thing at any age. I lost my dad when I was five. Hang in there and know you have friends in many places wishing you well.

I'm sorry to know that you lost your dad. Having just lost my father in October, I understand how tough it is to actually write it down and put it into words...

Sending you my sympathies and good thoughts. Everyone's experiences are slightly different, but if you need to talk, you can always email me.

My sympathies to you and your family on the loss of your father. It is always so hard to lose our parents. We always thought they would be with us.

Hi Nice Blog .In this, the body is studied by regions rather than by organs. This is of importance to the surgeon who exposes different planes after the skin incision and who, of course, must be perfectly familiar with structures as he explores the limbs and spine anatomy cavities.
