Good evening;   So far hubby's new job is going well, he like's what he is doing and they are pretty nice to work for, which is a big plus.  Now the photo above is just a photo I found in my program and just had to share it,  oh how I would love to be laying in that hammock letting the warm salty breeze blow over me gently swaying in the hammock... ahhhhhhh,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,  OH sorry I am back now; lol    Well yesterday I spent the morning unpacking our clothes and putting them away, which is not a easy task, the room we are in is very small, and as usual I took most of the space.....  hey you never know what a girl will need, so just in case I had to pack most of everything,,,, oh then all my shoes, couldn't leave them behind, right......   We are going to be renting an apartment  in a couple of weeks, so I guess I can hang on a little longer.. It is kind of a cute place, tomorrow I will take a few photos to show you all...    I did bring some things to keep me busy while Honey Bunny is at work,  most of my Scrap book things and yarn to knit, and sewing basket to do some red work...

I  am knitting some 8x8 in. squares for this group of  caring loving women in Africa, who then take the squares and put them together and make warm blankets to keep sick and Orphans warm. Lisa from Vintage Sweet Peas  sent me some information about it on my face book, she is making some as well, so I joined in.  I did not realize how hard it would be to make sure my square is only 8 in. if I stretch it too much then it is too long or not long enough. So I hope I have not made them too big....  so that is keeping me busy and then getting in some blog time and make some visits to you all.....  I have been able to change my cell phone plan and now can call my kids back home and see how they are all doing,,, and they are doing ok... Yesterday was my grand daughter Liberty's 7th Birthday, we called and talked to her on the phone last night, boy can she talk a blue streak........ wow  she loves to talk on the phone... lol   it was hard to explain that we don't live close to them any more, but we did tell them we would be back to see them when we can....   That is the hardest part about having to move for work,,, leaving some many loved ones..  But when the Lord says, I want you to go here,,,,, well we go....  so here we are...  We both have faith in the fact that the Lord is keeping them safe and sound for us, while he is showing us the way he wants us to go.....  Well I am making my sweet hard working Honey Bunny dinner now, so I must say good bye, he will be here soon... Just wanted to keep  in touch....  I want to thank you all for you sweet comments and for taking time to stop by.... I so enjoy reading them...  Hope you all have a wonderful week..... Until next time;

God Bless;

I hope you are doing well and things go great for you and Honey Bunny, sugar! I think of you often and what a transition this must be but it'll be worth it if it helps you grow closer to each other.

I know exactly how you feel; remember we moved less than a month ago. I'm looking at each day as an adventure. Sometimes, I almost feel like a young bride again while I settle in my new little apartment. I like it.

Glad to hear you brought some of your hobbies with you. A girl can always use some scrapbook time!

Alaura best of luck to you in your new move and endeavors in life. I would be scared to leave my home, but then again, I've always stayed so very close. I've lived in the same town on the Cape for almost 40 years LOL!

Your knitting project sounds like a great idea.

I hope you enjoy your new home.

take care,

Best wishes on your move, and new adventures! Could be just what you needed!

It's always hard though to adjust to such big changes, so give yourself time!
