My Apron

Well today is much better than I anticipated. My kitchen is trashed right now, but it was used much. I have a wonderful aroma of Swiss Steak filling the house and fresh buns just out of the oven. Dinner will be good! I have spent some time on the wonderful website that Christine at Liberty Star Farm gave me....I plan to visit there often!!! I also read a story from this book.If I could only have 1 quilt book and had to get rid of all the others, THIS is the one I would keep. There are no patterns in it....no pictures, but the stories are so rich and I disappear into a time that was so wonderful. These stories were written anywhere from 1845-1940. The history is full and I think I may use it in our homeschool classes. It is no longer in print, but there are 3 "like new" copies here. I may have to get another just to have a spare!! It is a book that can become a favorite of a quilter or anyone who loves quilts....shoot anyone who loves to read at all would want this book.

I have to say however, the highlight of my day was a visit from TJ. You know how cute it is when your little boys slip on Daddy's shoes, or the little girls want to wear Mommy's high heels?? Well my grandson wants to wear Grandma's apron!!! These pics are not great, but HAVE to be shared. He was playing ball at the stairway and then he decided he wanted to sit in Grandma's chair at the 'puter". "Come ober here, Gramma" "Ober" was not a typo...it is Tj's new favorite word..."Look ober there!" I LOVE it!!! I had the apron on when he arrived, and when I took it off, he brought it to me to put on him. His Daddy was none too pleased! Mom thought it was cute though!! My day became bright!

Your grandson is adorable. Today for the first time, my 2 year old grandson told me over the phone "love you gamma". It brought me to tears!

Hi Bren!
If it makes you feel better, I liked your post on babies. You have such a good heart! I shouldn't even be online. I just popped on to take care of a couple of things that needed tending in my inbox, and dropped by to see how a few of my favorite blogs are doing. My youngest is very sick, nothing life threatening, he is just miserable, and has been since Sunday, fevers and such. Probably won't be better until this weekend the doctor tells me! Yay. God's way of forcing me to slow down and rock my baby!
Blessings!

Cute Grandson Bren! I also had to visit Amazon for that book you recomended, which of course led to finding a couple other ones, and at a whopping .01 cent on a couple of them, how can you resist?!
