Like all of you our lives seem to be constantly changing
and sometimes just getting a moment to yourself is like a quiet piece of heaven.I feel like such a bad blogger lately but I have just been super busy.The last few months I have been babysitting little Jack seeing friends getting back to my rug hooking groups and attending a funeral. I also went to a baby shower and have been reading like there is no tomorrow on my Ipad.
I broke my camera and have been having to use my husbands old camera which doesn't inspire me. The viewer gets stuck all the time so I have to manually open it.
Plus I am busy gathering my wood in the back yard for my wood burning stove every time it rains.I had a bright idea to take out an ugly propane heater one year. We use my wood burning stove for heat in the front room.Since California is usually mild in winter it's not too bad except when the wood is wet.So during the winter I am usually making sure hubby has some wood cut .I love a nice fire when it's raining perfect for hooking rugs.
Tonight I was browsing on my iPad which in my crazy world is
the best gadget in the world and came across old video from World War Two.There is nothing you can't find if your able to string random words together. Years ago I wrote a piece about my Uncle on my blog that died as a POW in Palawan Philippines .With the Internet and a few strokes of my little fingers I actually saw historical video of the few survivors talking about how they escaped. The video also had the footage as they exhumed the bones which was shocking knowing that one of those could have been my uncle Joe Uballe .My Uncle was not so lucky he was brutally killed with over a hundred men when the Japanese decided they didn't want the prisoner of war to survive even if the end of the war was near.This was one of the atrocities of World War Two.
Jack's Great Great Aunt Sophie. My hooking groups and working on project quilts that need to get done one of these days .A simple ordinary life that I have because others fought to keep our country safe for all of us.A simple Thank You seems not enough.

Well I am off to my warm bed finally.
I sure wish this was my bed I can only dream.
I promise I will get back to all my blogger friends this week. Hugs Cheri
