We are back to normal again. Norman did some weeding and helped me move my sewing into the loft. Now I can sew whenever I want to and don’t have to be down in the studio. I am working on a long nightie for Dhyana. Shanti has returned home and brought all the dresses I finished for Dhyana. The last one I finished while Shanti was here is the red and black one that she will use for Halloween. She will be a Lady Bug. Shanti will make or buy her a head band with antennae on it. Shanti wrote today and said the dress was a hit with Dhyana.
She looks so cute in the dress. She couldn’t wait to try it on so she put it on over her pjs. It is a little big for her because I make a size 8. The size 6s I made for her are getting too small so I went with an 8. She is only 4 so you see she is a tall little girl. I love sewing for both girls because they like whatever I make.
We packed up all the canned goods to take to Florida and left here all that we will need until we go and what we will need when we come back in March until the new garden comes in again. We have 26 cases to take, now all we need to do is find room in the truck for those and the other things we need in Florida. Norman always says it won’t fit but somehow he manages to fit it all in so hope he can again this year. Have a great day.
About Carol (Ouma) Petts
I am a retired teacher. I have taught all levels from kindergarten through college and have been retired now for over 20 years. The last ten years we have lived on a farm and lived off the land, growing our own food and canning for our extended family. Now we have sold the farm and are moving to Florida to truly retire. I guess I have always had a short attention span as this is our 11th move. We have moved from a small farm in New Hampshire, to more city type living, small business adventures, focusing more on traveling, Florida living, Georgia, and Tennessee farming and now back to Florida. My blog is a way to keep my children up to date on what I am doing and letting them know I am still alive and well. My children are spread across the country from New England to Florida, Nova Scotia to New Mexico and CA and several places between, They let me know what they are up to by commenting on my blog but they are so busy with their own lives most times I have to assume " no news is good news". Now I are starting on a new adventure so will try to give daily updates until we get settled into a routine. Then I know even if I am getting older and should settle down I will start looking for some new and exciting adventure to start. Welcome aboard. Norman died Oct 30, 2017 so I am continuing the journey alone with the aid of my children, grand children and great grand children. At present I am living with my daughter and we are 7 in one house and cover four generations. We range in age from 7 to 85 and are finding common ground, we are living proof that multi generations can live and function in a three bedroom house if they really want to. Soon my grandson will have his house built next door so we all will have a room of their own except for the seven year old twins who by choice will share a room.
