Another year

From my Sweetie. Proof that he doesn't wait until the last minute to wish me a Happy Birthday :0)

Veggies from our garden along with the pumpkin Micheal scored my name into when the pumpkin was very small and green. This little guy was hidden in the vines and since he is doing most of the gardening these days, a fun surprise for me! Isn't he wonderful !?!

Another year plus it's been a month since my last blog post (my apologies)... time is going by way too fast. Birthdays seem to prompt a time for reflection. My life has changed dramatically in the last seven years and it's about to take a new path. We (Mr. Wonderful too) made the decision to move my Mom in with us. After a month of planning, rearranging the house and adding some safety features, we moved Mom in on Sunday. So far the transition is going well. Mom has severe dementia and that will be a challenge. She always knows us and until that changes we hope to have her here with us. With a new Memory Care facility being built here in Chico we have that as an option. 

There are lots of quilts lined up between now and Christmas. Life is good... quilting, gardening and spending time with three people I love very much. That includes Chris, my son who recently moved into a house close to us. Just got a birthday phone call from by BFF Sally. Life is good :0)


  1. How sweet !


  2. Happy birthday! We are both Libras.

  3. Happy Birthday. What a wonderful gift you are giving your mom, and I hope everything goes smoothly for all of you.

  4. Happy Birthday Jo! I will mark this down and set it in stone. I hope you had a wonderful day! I love that pumpkin from Michael, that was really sweet!
    I'm glad you'll be able to spend more time with your Mother. I wish you all the best!

  5. That is so sweet for you to take in your mom. It is really hard work too. Enjoy her company. (Oh and the pumpkin is too sweet too! What a darling hubby you have.)
