Well, we are officially at the halfway point, give or take of my husbands deployment. It's so nice to know that and that I survived another harsh North Country winter. Last time he deployed everything broke and I had a chimney fire. This time, smooth sailing so far.........knock on wood.
I feel so bad for the folks in New Englad who got slammed with the snowstorm yesterday. I'm not sure I'd be able to cope. I will say that although it is still cool here, warms temps but very breezy, that my tulips and daffodils are peeking through. I let my chickens out for the first time in four months the other day and they were so happy. I just love to see them running around the yard.
We've been busy as usual, trying to get ready for what we hope will be a busy summer. If I'm not painting, I'm either hooking or punching. I've gotten quite a few of my designs punched in the last month. Progress, progress!!! I've included a couple of photos of some of my newest ones. These little punch needles are just the cutest things!!
Well, off to bring my son to work, until next time......
- Thank you very much for taking the time to read my blog. I am married and just entering the second phase of my life as a Army retiree's wife. My husband and I did 25+ years in the Army. He is now officially a retired Colonel and has just entered the civilian workforce and I am happily settled in our 1830 Stone house. I (along with my Mom) operate www.theoldtatteredflag and currently we are building a small shop in the back part of the house. We live in Northern NY, right near the Canadian border. I have two handsome sons and 2 puggles. Life is busy for us, but I wouldn't have it any other way.
