Blog Clean Up

Wow, being away from my blog and blogging has left me with decisions to make, one being a good fall cleaning. I have given my corner a quick once over but no real decisions as yet. I need to sit down and purge bloggers from my list who have changed their status to private or who have not posted in years. That saddens me because at one time I liked/loved the blog well enough to include them on my list. For some reason or other you were special and most of all I found you quite interesting. We are all different, and special in our own way. We should take pride in being unique. I rest my case.

Now I need to speak about a couple of things, just to set the record straight. I honestly try not to bring unpleasant or negative issues to my blog, but I'm smart enough to realize there are outside forces that can affect everyday life. There are things that can be beyond our control. We may be compelled to react and to speak out. Our blog is ours alone, it is not meant to be the soapbox for the visitors and since anyone can comment I reserve the right to jury those comments a decide what is published. We are living in troubled times. You have one of two choices, if you don't like the way things are you can either do something positive or you can complain and continue to be part of the problem.

And I am going to close this post with my deepest condolences to the families of the four American soldiers who lost their lives in Niger. My hope is that their faith brings them through this unconsoling grief, and that they find comfort in the love and caring of their families and friends. I pray that God wraps his arms around these souls and comforts them in their time of sorrow. His words are more important than those of any man. Remember that.

Peace be with you all. God bless and keep you,
Susanne ❤️

Touching Base With Blogland

It has been over 4 months since I last came here and posted. I always come with good intentions, but along the way back I get way laid and life is what happens when I planned something else. No need for me to make my excuses, like I've said before, I stay busy. I mentioned before that I'm suffering with arthritis in my hands. Needless to say I have still not picked up a crochet hook or knitting needles in quite some time to do any large projects. The only thing I have made was two knitted pink caps for the woman's movement. It didn't help that along the way I lost my mojo. I believe that happens from a combination of things, but who am I to complain, I am blessed compared to other Americans who are suffering from the after effects of hurricane flooding, winds, and raging fires. I have absolutely no reason on this earth to complain when others are struggling to survive and grieving the loss of loved ones. My heart goes out to them.

I wanted to share some photos with all of you, but I'm on my iPad and I am clueless as to how to get them on here. It is probably a simple fix, but so far it eludes me. I guess I'll have to rely on my tried and true PC for doing that. Another thing, this cookie thing, what am I suppose to do about that? Again, I need to go look at blogs to do some catching up. I suppose I have lost some followers and I wouldn't blame them for leaving me. I mean, after all, why hang onto a blog that appears to be a dead end street. Just to let you know......it has been 6 years since I have sat down in front of my sewing machine, and that was to be my escape. So, I truely have been busy.

God bless you all ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️

Still Alive

How many times have I come here with the best intentions and promises.....a few too many times, as you know. There never seem to be enough hours in a day. I stay busy constantly. I miss blogging and I miss my blogging friends. I miss reading your blogs and what you are up to. I have met some great people on here. I do hope to get back to this, but some things have changed for me and mainly my crocheting and knitting. I am suffering from arthritis in my hands so I have not done any kind of needle work in a good 2-3 months. Life for me has become boring in the sense that I am trying to clean out many problem areas. Slowly, taking baby steps to remedy those issues. There is a basement, wood shop, garage and shed that need attention. I do what I can when time allows. Last July I also bought a 32' camper and it sits on a seasonal site. It came in great condition but I will scrub it down inside and out, ceiling to floor, as time allows. I still babysit my grandson Holden and he is a joy! He is my bright and shining star. He just graduated from pre-school a week ago Thursday. Anyways, forgive me for not being faithful, but I'll try harder in the future ❤️❤️❤️
