One More Day

Norman is back to normal again.  I guess he is getting used to those shots for it is not taking as long to get over them.  His vision is back to normal and he is feeling fine.  He went for his walk this morning and I did some stitching.  After breakfast we put up 12 pounds of cabbage to ferment into sauerkraut.  It will take two or three weeks and I have to change the top dressing each day but then we will have a fresh supply of sauerkraut and we will can part of it and keep the rest to eat fresh.  Photo on 9-18-14 at 3.20 PM

After dinner I did some hand sewing to finish this, which is Gina’s bed jacket or short robe.  I had only a small piece of this flees  so I made the robe as big as I could.  Patty told me the twins like the pants I made for them this summer and that they are wearing them now so I cut out some more for them.  I like to sew for any of the kids that will wear the clothes but it is hard when I don’t see them so when Patty told me they do wear their pants that gave me the go ahead to make more for them.  It is harder for the boys as there are not many patterns for little boys but I have a few and have cut out two.  Tomorrow I will cut out more and have several for them when I see them this winter.  Time now to get supper.  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.
