My life is a busy one ~ my husband, Sonny, and I have a blended family of 6 kids, 5 of them married and 10 grandchildren and 2 great grandchildren! We have a building business and I am the Office Personnel, if you know what I mean!! I also have a small rug hooking business in my home studio, where I sell as-is wool and my own hand-dyed wool, beautiful frames and stands that my husband builds and some finished hooked pieces, etc. I would love to hook every day, all day, as I'm sure many of you would ~ but that's rarely possible!! Thanks for checking in and I hope you'll find A DAY IN THE LIFE ~ ~ ~ entertaining!!
That was right after the Great Walleye Drop! We've been to almost every one for the last 13 years and this year, son Ted and family got to see it first hand! Some of their friends were up there, too! They agreed that it was what I call "stupid fun"! 12 year old grandson Luke wasn't that impressed ~ I think that's because he's 12. The weather was great and a good time was had by all!
We had an early dinner at McCarthy's Irish Pub and Princess Walleye dropped by ~ a perfect photo op for grandma and the kids! Luke and I are a little blurry ~ I felt kind of blurry on the inside, too! Miki fixed pomegranate Patron margaritas for her and I before we left home! Need I say more!
The kids left New Years morning so gramps and I went out for a little beach glass hunting! It was cold and blowy but we went anyway and came home with a fine 'catch'!! We fixed pork and kraut so that we'll have good luck this year and watched the latest BatMan movie ~ wow ~ that was different than any of the Batman movies of the past! On Monday, we had a long lunch at the Moose with our friends, Kathy and Jim ~ then packed up for the drive back to reality! Friday night, we had supper with a neighbor from home, who has just moved to Catawba. That was fun, too ~ it would be swell to live up there full time!!
My son, Tad turned 47 last week ~ one of us is getting old!! He's having great fun with his Ipad! Amazing! Now mama wants one!!
So, here we are ~ facing 2012 with all the hope that a new year brings! Looking back on 2011 and being glad we survived it! A lot of fun was had and it's important to focus on that ~ and to learn from the things that maybe weren't so swell! I appreciate all of you who read this blog and comment here and there ~ it's good to know I'm not talking to myself ~ THANK YOU! So onward and upward ~ here we go!!!!!!! Isn't it exciting to see where the path leads?
Thanks for stopping by and have all the fun you can have this year!!
