The seasons have been extreme this year--It was very a cold and snowy Winter which included a blizzard, the Spring was very wet with floods, the Summer extremely hot setting records, and the Fall beautiful.  I filled this picture page in with my Mother's Day trip to E.R. when my Blood Pressure spiked because I changed medicines.
We got a full range of it all this year.  The heat was stifling this summer and it dried up the yard--which meant I had to water.  What a change from our flooding in the spring.
We weren't far from the F5 tornado that hit Joplin.  That storm produced for us a lot of rain and a double rainbow and a beautiful sunset.  Joplin did not fair well at all.

My sewing has been hit and miss----
  I didn't get a picture of all of my projects though.  I spent a lot of time on my flowers and in my garden.
Football was big for us this Fall.  My nephew, Scott kept us entertained--his High School team excelled so well I think a game or two was on ESPN--Tons of fun. 

I also completed several Bible Studies--Leviticus, Exodus, one on prayer, and John 14-17--what a blessing.
Something I'm not too proud of is I lost 30 pounds and gained it all back.  I was losing weight because my BP was intolerant of carbs, then I discovered Diatomacious Earth which allowed me to eat carbs, which was so nice, but I went overboard.  2012, I hope I do better with this one.


  1. What a great post! It's hard to believe all that happened in one year!

  2. I don't comment often, but I have enjoyed reading your blog!!! All the very best for 2012, healthwise and sewingwise!!!
