Grow Your Blog...

Welcome to the 2015 Grow Your Blog Party hosted by Vicki @ Two Bags Full.
 
2 Bags Full

My name is Kathy. My husband, Andy, and I have been married for 39 years.
I am mother to four and
Memaw to seven.

 
We live in a small West Texas town of less than a thousand. We have two Chihuahuas,
 
numerous donkeys

and cats.
I enjoy reading, quilting, photography, music, gardening, knitting, and crochet.
 Things I collect are sock monkeys, stereo view cards, old school bells, green dishes, Indian dolls and nutcrackers.
My blog is about whatever enters my mind. I call myself a recovering packrat, so I am in the process , an on-going process, of deep cleaning with the goal of getting rid of...
I am retired, so I have no excuse. Right?
On April 8, 2014 I decided to walk the Camino de Santiago, a 500 plus mile pilgrimage across Northern Spain, with my oldest brother, so I am in the process of getting ready for that. We are leaving on March 12th and will return on May 11th. My husband has had two back surgeries and has no desire to go, so he is staying home to babysit the critters. 
That is a bit about me. Thank you for stopping by. Leave your comment to be entered in a give-away. I will announce the winner on February 15th. Make sure I have your e-mail in your comment. If you don't respond by email within 48 hrs. another winner will be chosen.
 I hope you will follow and visit often. My email is auntkye56@yahoo.com.
Have a great week!!!

My Dad 1927-2014...

My dad passed away on July 7th, 2014.
One day as we were discussing death and funerals he said, "When I die I want to be at home, on my couch, watching T.V, and just go to sleep." That appears to be exactly how he went. He was almost 87, still living by himself, and as sharp as a tack. My nephew who found him said his hands were folded in his lap just like he always kept them.
 
It's been a hard month. It doesn't seem possible that he's gone. It feels like I can pick up the phone and call him, or drive up and get him for breakfast, but I can't. I realize that death is part of life and it is all part of God's plan. God is good.

The last song played at the funeral was his favorite fiddle tune.
His two sons, four grandsons, and two granddaughters were among the 20 plus musicians that played  
"Florida Blues"
 Just for him.
He will forever be missed.

Amigurumi Finally Complete...

Here is a previous post from February 9, 2014.
 
I discovered these cute little crocheted animals while browsing Pinterest. I ordered the pattern from http://www.etsy.com/shop/TinyAmigurumi.
After starting over numerous times I think I am finally happy with all the parts, and now it's time to sew them together.
Here is a picture from the website of what it should look like.
 
I said I would post the finished product, so here it is.
Have a great week!!!!

First Monday In April...

Here it is April already. Where is the year going? I just celebrated another birthday. They are officially running together. I don't really mind telling my age, but when my elderly cousin puts it on Facebook for the world to see, ouch, it sinks in. Doesn't he know the rule about not telling a women's age? At least it wasn't my weight, right? There's always a positive. 

I saw this on Facebook. I love it, but I wonder if this poor man has thought about the clean up. He must need something to do. I wonder if his wife said, "Honey, go hang these eggs in that tree while I go shopping." Hmmmm, I may need to remember this when Hubby retires. 
Have a great week!!!
