Home is wherever my family is...

I guess this year with kid #3 off to college, 

and just 1 more chiilun at home to be raised,
has got me feeling all sentimental about my family.

I have spent the last 27 years of my life dedicated to them. 
And as one by one they move off to begin their own lives I feel happy and satisfied that my hubby and I have done a good job with them.
Every one of them is a well rounded interesting person with a good set of values and a love for God.

Each one of them is a light to the world as they move out their to live their faith. It is wonderful to see. 
And no matter where we are, 
when we are together we are "Home"
I'm sure you feel the same about your family!

I'm still here!

I haven't posted in a while because our lives here went topsy-turvy for a couple of weeks! 
My husband lost his mother rather quickly and unexpectedly. 
We had a couple of weeks of hospitals and relatives and a funeral. 
We had the boys back and forth from college twice in a week and in the middle of all of that,
my brother, who is our very close to our family and our parish priest, 
was yanked out of our parish and transferred to another town. 
I was not ready for all of this, but I don't think this is something you can be ready for.
Life goes on.
So my great plans for releasing 3 new patterns have gone astray. I am chasing them down as we speak! LOL!
In the middle of all of this it was applesauce making time. This was actually a blessing, something to concentrate on while waiting for the funeral to happen.
My sister in law and I put up a few quarts.
I made some more yesterday, and some applebutter,
which turned out delicious!
I hope to be back at the end of the week with some new patterns. It is great to get back to work, which lucky for me is really play!
