My Place

T'was in a city where I was born, but there I never found a home.
My heart had known before my past, that in a city I would not last.
Could it be these feet of mine, would find the sand the place they'd pine?
Alas the beach was not the place, for that my forlorn heart would race.
Canopy of trees, shines filtered sun, a breathe of honeysuckle where I run,
T'was a hoosier I'm meant to be, with clay soil beneath my feet.
Just one acre, my little woods. But this place does suit me good.
And here I'll be a hoosier best, and live my life til time to rest.

Wow, it's been a year?

I have missed blogging terribly. I have a new lap top! Yeah! I plan to be more faithful to writing in general. I have a few book ideas I am working on. I also wanted to get back here and give an update.

I have given up the rabbits. When big guy had his struggles, I knew I couldn't keep up with the tremendous amount of care the angora's required. I miss them. But I know it was the right thing to do for them and for us as a family.

Our children are doing well. My oldest, Sarah and I have been quilting. It is fun sharing ideas, patterns and dreams together. I love connections like this. My oldest son Stephen is becoming a wonderful  music artist. You should check out some of  his you tube videos. He is under Stephen Gould... he is the skinny dude. Then big guy that had the struggles last year...well really in August of 2013, is doing much much better. Our youngest Bam bam is growing in so many ways.

We have a new dog named Princess. Gigi is not particularly fond of this large puppy and her antics. Princess is an Australian shepherd/blue heeler mix. My first go round with a herding breed and it's been a trip. But she isn't nipping me nearly as much. We love her dearly.

I have been crafting up a storm. Loving every minute I can do my crafts. There never is enough time for it.

That catches you up in a vague sort of way. More to come though. Things will be clearer soon. I'm looking forward to keeping in touch.
