The Old Tattered Flag

Plugging along......

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......

Thanks for the snow sympathy. We did get slammed a bit, but today most of it melted with temps in the 50s. I can't wait for true spring. Glad to hear that you are at the halfway point and can see the end in sight, with hubby coming home!

About Me

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.
