Let me just tell you that I have the best boys in the world! I am here to tell you that they look after their mother, and see that I have what I need.

Today, when I left school, I went to the Creek House to check in. It is all looking great! The landscaping has started, and the touch-up painting. They hung my mantle, and finished putting in the appliances. The pool and pool deck is nearing completion. I will try to post some pics for you tomorrow.

Anyway, while I was out, Alex called and asked me to come home because Adam needed to tell me something. After making sure they were both OK, I checked out of Kohl’s and headed home. My sweet, kind, thoughtful son, Adam, has figured out a way for me to use the Internet at home…even though I said I couldn’t. And, I still can’t in the way I once did, but he and Alex worked on it and did some kind of ‘hocus-pocus’…and viola! it works! Now, what they did, I do not know. I only know there are some things hanging out of the side, and I was told in no uncertain terms to be careful and not break them. And, I will be very careful.

Adam came to my rescue, and I didn’t even ask him. Well…actually, I did not know that I even COULD ask him…I thought service off meant service off. Thank goodness, my boys have never been entirely happy with taking ‘no’ for an answer. They have most always been able to find ‘another way’ to solve things that didn’t go their way. Now, this made raising them very difficult at times…but, now that they are grown…it is mighty handy!

So, I am thanking Adam for his resourcefulness, and for his desire to find a way to make his Mom’s life easier! It is a blessing that I do not take lightly, that God has blessed me with wonderful boys. They are good to Don and I, and respect us…and are a constant source of joy to us. OK, well, maybe not constant, but nearly constant!:) So, thank you, God, for my boys. Please bless them with as much joy as they bring to me.

So, I do not know if you are as excited that I am back among the bloggy living as I am…but I think that I can even survive without the TV and the land line phone just fine. By the way, as of now, the computer will not let me send e=mail. I receive it just fine however. And I can comment on your blogs.

Life has returned to some semblance of normal…if the fact that your underwear is packed up in a box next to the TV, and your shoes are in laundry bags behind the couch, dished stacked up on the kitchen table. And, I can only use 2 purse, because the others are packed up and to hard to get to. Yeah…sounds like our ‘normal!’

Here’s a little more news to share with you today…


Above are the Christmas Designs I did for our school. The gifts are in color and B/W, and the ornaments are for the children’s program shirt. I also had aprons and tote bags made with the ornament design.

This is a part of my job that I so enjoy. I have been able to satisfy the ‘artist’ in me by doing these shirts twice a year. Every one is so gracious and seems to really enjoy wearing them.

When I first started designing the shirts, I did a colored one for the children, and began doing the B/W for the adults. Only in the past year or so have I done a shirt with color for the adults. From the very first design, I have always included scripture. It is exciting to think that anyone who wears my shirts, will be sharing the gospel also. I like that. The colored shirts are nice, but I am still partial to the B/W.
