La Vita E Bella

                                                                    [Photo by Erin.]

This weekend was filled with
house loving, trying to make
sure all the hard work I did
over the summer isn't lost.

I did a little stash diving and
cast on a new project [more
later].  I don't know what is
wrong with me, but I just had
to cast on a new project even
though I have several projects
already on needles..and projects
already waiting their turn to
be cast on!

There was a phone call with
my favorite six year old letting
me know she has been moved
to the advanced class for gymnastics,
way to go Emerson! Olie is so
happy you are have such a fun

There were hugs from all four
of my boys, making this mama's
heart swell; I just wish my daughter
could have been here, I miss you

I took a long ride in the country
to check out a house one of my
son's will soon be calling home
We are so proud that a long awaited
job will begin tomorrow for him
and his wife. It's been a long, hard
road, but so worth all the sacrifices,
hard work does pay off.

There was touring old country roads
 and churches, silly grand dogs who
love to pose and funny horses that
wanted attention.

Life is beautiful!
