I'm Back..........

Well, I stole that title from Hillary but I am back after almost a year of not blogging.

No real reason I stopped other than I just took a "little break" and nearly a year has passed!  Mother always told me the older you get the faster the time flies and you know, she was right!!

I thought I might do a little recap of what has happened in my life this past year but then that might put you to sleep! zzzz......zzzz

We have had times of loss of loved ones, friends, but also new lives begun!  Our church added a new building and we feel so blessed to be a part of that!  

The real reason I decided to start blogging again, at least for the next few months, is that we are getting ready to have a new family member and I did want to document his arrival as I did my three granddaughters in the past!

I didn't want him to ever read his 'ole Nonny's blog someday and see that nothing was written about him.....our first grandson!!

Hubs is currently on a teaching ministry trip to India and Nepal.  This,in fact, is the reason I have time to actually sit down and think about blogging again. He will be gone a total of seventeen days.  Some people ask me what I do while he is gone.

Actually some very exciting things come to mind:





Trying to catch up on some household chores I have been neglecting has kept me busy this past week!  Funny how I am perfectly happy to let things go when I am on the run but now with extra time, I've started noticing stacks of things that needed to be done.

Also when Hubs is not here, the little cooking that I do goes to practically zippo!

Why cook for one?  There are some "fairly" good frozen "dinners" ( and I use that term loosely!) out there.  I had a Chili's Tex-Mex bowl "thingee" from the frozen foods department that was quite tasty!  

So Skippy and I are just hanging out, enjoying each other's company and waiting for the stork to arrive and our Daddy to get home.  Hopefully both will be on time!!



Glad to be back!

I understand completely. I have just recently added a few pictures to my neglected blog as Facebook has taken over. But I have a few long distance contacts that I miss confining my pictures to Facebook so I too am trying to post on my blog. Happy to see you back and excited about that new grandson coming! God's blessings!
