Happy Memorial Day!

Wow the first summer holiday weekend, how time flies. First I am thankful and grateful for the sacrifice

that our military has made for me so that I can live in freedom, and I thank all those that have served this

wonderful country of our. My father was a marine and my husband was in the army and both are really

proud of their service. So our military are dear to me.

My weekend has been low key and boy is that nice sometimes just to relax and do whatever.

I made a quick trip a week or so ago to a shop where Jean of "Prim Crafts"   has her crafts

and couldn't resist her prairie doll.  Also want to show a few pictures of some of my flowers. And today

is one of our special blogger friends birthday, stop by and wish Sheila "Seasons of thy Heart" a very

Happy Birthday!"

Wishing you a lovely Memorial Day!!!!

About Me

My photo
I have been married to my sweetheart Ronnie for 30 years.We live in the beautiful shenandoah valley of Va. We have 2 beautiful children and 3 beautiful grandchildren. I am a christian, and am blessed with two wonderful jobs. I am a hairdresser and also a nurse, I am proud of my nursing degree which I got at age 47. I give the Lord much praise for this. I also enjoy primitive crafts, antiquing, cooking, reading and gardening. My husband and I bought an old farmhouse in WV five years ago and it was ancient, floor rotted out in the kitchen, no bathroom, bats flying around, mice. Scary, well now five years later we have most of it completed, working now on a roof for the wrap around porch.We sand blasted some of the walls so they would be original, we also took all the old weatherboarding off of the outside of the house, planed it and put it back on some of the inside walls. We also have added a wrap around porch. Since we have remodled the old farmhouse, that is how I came up with my blog name.
