idle threads.....

The threads are idle,

but we haven’t been unwinding.



On the road to a city of beautiful historic architecture...


and traffic that’s a real…


Dropping a few Ben Franklins on to-be-assembled furniture...

that has to be carried up steps to challenge even Rocky



Where a kind stranger showed some Brotherly Love by picking up the tab for my iced pick-me-up after hearing my lament over packing the tool box and drill...

but forgetting the drill bits.



text just in…


life's good.


it's just embroidery, have fun with it!

You always tell your 'story' in the best photos!

Well, I hope you enjoy your visit to Philly, even if you are working hard, Cathy! Although, it never seems like working when you are helping your kids out. I think that text says it all!

The best way to end the day - a little love from a child! The things we do for them... Your pictures are worth a 1,000 words!

I love seeing that the mother/son relationship continues to be so connected! My big boy (all of 9) is a little homesick at camp and I'm a big sad I can't send him a text to cheer him up. The mail system just takes so long when you know they need you! :)

That thanks Mom just makes it all worthwhile I know :)
Those stairs, ugh. Last time we moved my daughter to her (yet again) new place I told her she better pick a place with no stairs next time or I'm out, but of course I'm really not.

This post, while witting and clever as ever, made me teary thinking about the day I drop my son off at college. We had a rather sad drop off at the first full day camp this week. (Happy to say, today was much better.)
You did a good job if your boy is already texting and appreciating what you did/do for him :)

Love your post...no matter how old they are your children will always be your babies! You did a good job raising him judging by his text.

Love the way you tell your stoties. Especially the 'Payne in the proverbial'.

I just read through most of your posts and I love your work! I have an Embroidery machine but have only made a couple of things with it but you are a true inspiration when I see what you've done!
I have added you to my faves and I'm now a loyal follower!!

PS this post reminded me of a time I was at Starbucks standing in line to place my order and when I got to the counter, the man in front of me had paid for my drink and I didn't even know him...when I went to thank him, he was already out the door!
