We have finally hit springtime in our neck of the woods of North Carolina USA…
Anyone know the name of this plant?? Shrub or bush??? There are 2 here in our yard:)
However…. our friends to the north in Canada remain in lock down due to Covid and India is suffering terrible numbers of deaths daily too! We must recall world Laughter Day is today and share a a joke or two….
This week was a crazy one for us… we left out Monday morning for Nashville, Tennessee to help my honey’s sister with some home maintenance and renovations to her home.
We got that barking dog syndrome with every person that came in the hotel we stayed in while he was doing his renovations nearby!!! It was a hoot at times and other times plain annoying.
I want to apologize to all who left me sweet comments last week… I read them from my phone as we packed and can’t respond easily in that format however…. so you may not have gotten a return for your visit… I plan to make up for that today…now that we are home and back on track 🙂
While in Nashville…. we saw Connie and I handed off the quilt I had been working on… and we saw my son that just got married and his wife and handed over some family momentos … Michael will be the keeper of the Clower family memories 🙂 As we downsize… anything from this era he will be the keeper of for our family moving forward… I like this idea too !!!!
But mainly our trip to Nashville was focused on Rick and his sister Ruthie…
But after a good nights sleep it was time to pack it up and head home… here is our first view of mountains back in our sights Friday afternoon….
Seems strange that 4 hour drive can be such a different temperature and humidity levels … but as much as we enjoyed seeing friends and family … we were sooo happy to get home!
Which brings us to World Laughter Day… Make time to belly laugh today … laughter is soooo good for the soul! If you are quarantined or locked down… don’t let it get you down…. focus on learning something new…
We are starting a keto versus low carb eating plan this week… Have you done this type of eating plan before… do you have helpful tips for us or a favorite youtuber??
While I learn more about this type of weight loss eating plan I will be hand quilting on this….
I am linking my slow stitching revival to Kathy’s Slow Sunday Stitching Link Up HERE <<<< y’all this project is 6 years in the making already … time to hunker down and put in some stitches… this is a beautiful whole cloth quilt I am stitching in a myriad of colored threads…. more on this next week!
Please take time to share your tips and tricks as requested above regarding our proposed new eating plan … and a joke at Kathy’s if you will… Keep those still struggling with vaccine availability in their countries with outbreaks too in your thoughts and prayers!!!
