Wonderful Road Trip

Yesterday my friend Jean and I made a trip to Amherst Va. to the craft show at

"Notforgotten Farm"  . It was such a beautiful drive. I just love where Lori lives,

it reminds me so much of our farmhouse in WV. I just loved her shop and loved

her donkeys. I will share a few pictures of our day of fun. I am tickled  with

the treasures that I found. I am already looking forward to next year.

So much going on

Summer just flew by and now I am back at school as a school nurse. I still work in my hair salon a few eve. and some Sat.
   My mom has really had a rough year, she broke her hip in Feb. we found out in May that she has Nash non alcoholic fatty liver disease, chirrosis, and is having symptoms from that. Then two weeks ago she fell and broke her ankle in two places. She has had two surgeries on her ankle and will require another surgery. Last week when they got her up for therapy, she told the therapist she couldn't stand on her other leg, that is the one she had a broken hip and a broken femur 3 years ago. When she stood it cracked. They are hoping with a brace that that leg heals.She has been in the hospital over 2 weeks, we are hoping sometime next week that she will be transferred to rehab.
Please pray for my mom, it is so hard working when all of this is going on.
 But I did want to show you a photo of some heirloom sunflowers that a wonderful friend Trish from
Arizona had sent me in the spring. She used to have a blog but doesn't anymore. We have remained friends and I cherish her friendship.
 I also want to show you my new bedroom quilt and curtains. It is amazing how something new can
make a person feel so good. Wishing everyone a beautiful Labor Day Weekend.

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.
