How fantastic to be able to resume old relationships seamlessly!

and how *terrific* to have another brain to pick with respect to family stories and memories!  oooooooh!   And she might have new photos for you!


definitely a blessing that you've found another creative outlet that doesn't cause pain and gives you joy.  Hobbies are wonderful things.  And it's good to have a couple.  Does organizing and cleaning out things count?  I find though I don't have time for sewing right now, it makes me feel better to do a little bit of cleaning.  I know, weird.  My life is so chaotic at work, it's nice to have a little bit of order at home.  We've recently started remodeling the house, so that doesn't help matters.

How great that you got to get together with a bunch of his cousins.  Bet you don't get to see each other often.

Remodeling a house sounds quite chaotic!  Didn't you do some remodeling not that long ago? like a bedroom or something?   I thought so but I could be having one of my many senior moments

Not weird.  My DH finds cleaning the greatest relaxer.  We've been married for 54 years and over the decades I have bought him many, many vacuums because he loves to sweep floors, etc.  Shop vacs, floor vacuums, etc. are his best "toys" and he loves getting a new one for a Christmas gift.

I'm the organizer, he's the cleaner.

Yes, we added on a master suite in 2014. Now starting on the old part. Took out paneling and carpet. Putting in tile in the den, replacing tile in kitchen. And eventually refacing cabinets - new doors and refinishing.

Dee, are you doing the work yourself or hiring it out? I've been doing a lot of work on my new place but that sounds like more than I could do :P 

combination.  I'm doing the painting, mostly because it is so expensive and they seem to do a poor job, and make a mess.  DH is going to install the barn door between the den & living room.  We used to have bi-fold doors that were cracked and broken.  WE may also take up the old tile but then we have to dispose of it and that is worth paying someone for.

I getcha. I do a lot of stuff too, tho I know there are things like flooring I'll have to hire. LOL!!! Just curious :)

Cup of tea Thursday....question of the week....

What was your favorite childhood book, say before age twenty?

The original The Boxcar Children sorry forgot to look up author.

This is the only book I remember my mom reading to us and dad worked for the railroad so that may have entered into the equation.

When my kids were in grade school I read it to them.
