It's fall time again

Well, it is fall and what has happened around here that I have failed to keep up with. I have been sewing. Pictures, no I forgot. Just rest assured that the embroidery machine is busy on a less than I like frequency. My piano students started contacting me sooner this year and I am now up to twenty. Busy times. I go to their homes because it works into our schedule better. I think honestly it is so I don't have to clean house as much. Maybe that is a little too much information for the world to know. Forgive me.

I have started work on Christmas items and I will have to take pictures and post those at a later date. I don't want some of those who will be receiving them to see them before the big day.

I am also loosing weight. It was time and it is coming off. Slower than I would like but coming off just the same. I have lost 50 pounds and I feel so much better.

Finally I just want to warn you that life after children and being over 50 does not mean that life slows down. I thought by now I would be able to do all of the things that I thought I could be doing after the children are gone from home. Nope, it doesn't happen. My life is just as busy and more confusing than before. But, I must be honest and tell you that my life, aside from aches and pains and not doing quite what it did before, is better than ever. I love where I am at in my life and I truly enjoy each of my children and the wonderful Grandchildren. From the oldest grandchild (21 and on a mission for our church) down to the youngest who will be born in January, I love them all. This little bundle will be grandchild number 15, where has the time gone so quickly. Ramble is over I just feel so blessed today I just had to share, soon I will dash off to pick up a grandaughter from Kindergarten, her mommy had to work today. Life just doesn't get much better than this.

A Happy, slimmer, busy and enjoying it grandmother.
