Rainy Raleigh, Roosters,
Wreaths and Ribbons

It's a rainy day in Raleigh and I have a sore throat, sneezing and coughing...sound familiar? So, I'm playing inside today.

This past week, I was at Walmart and discovered that their remnant/ribbon section is closing down in all Walmarts. The ribbon was unbelievably inexpensive. They might as well have just given it away!

I made this wreath and added some of the Walmart ribbon.

Decorate your day with ribbons!

You will be missed...

My husband's dear mother passed away during the early hours this morning. She was loved and she will be missed.

Please come in and sit a while. I left the door open for you. I haven't been around lately due to a family medical crisis. But, please come on in and take a look around. I'm sure there are some older posts that you haven't seen.

While you are here, please keep some good thoughts for our family. We will need even more strength in the days ahead.

Alma, thank you for the forty-six years we've had together as mother-in-law and daughter-in-law. Thank you for the wonderful man you raised to be my husband. Thank you for teaching me country cooking. Thank you for being a loving grandmother and great-grandmother that my children will never forget. Thank you for showing elegance, dignity and grace in the face of agonizing pain. I love you, dear lady.
