Not a whole lot new really...

I've signed up for the Stitch From Stash for 2015.  I've also made a list of projects I want to get done for the year.  Hopefully, that will keep me on track .

Now, since this blog thing is a bit new, in the creation of it anyway,  I think I have to place a button on the side of my blog for the Stitch from Stash - if you don't see it, that means I haven't figured it out.  Yet.  Some smart person will come along and tell me how...I'm sure.

On the home front, we got the news that my dd has been accepted into law enforcement and will be attending the academy soon.  This could lead to lots of different things.  But, I'm really proud of her.
I need a smiley face here.  A BIG ONE!

As you can see from earlier posts, I love to cross stitch - I thought you'd like to see an example of some older projects.  I think these are about 30 years old but I couldn't be sure. 

12 Days of Christmas.  The metal reindeer...used to belong to my mom - when they downsized, she gave them to me.  I've always loved them.  On the wall, Mike's Christmas stocking.  I don't fill that one. :-)

Finally, I want to wish each and every one of you a Blessed Christmas and New Year.  May Jesus live in your hearts and lives, may you find Comfort in Him, Joy, and that Peace that goes so far beyond our understanding that we can only stand and be amazed.

Merry Christmas.

What????? How long has it been????

It's not that I ever post anything that will change the course of history.  Those of you who know me know I have a tendency to start things and then they go by the wayside.  (Yes, Mike - you're right).

But, here I am again,.  Nothing earth shattering.  Nothing life changing.  Just me.
Sort of geeky...I like Marvel movies, Star Trek, Stargate, and the occasional Godzilla movie.  I like watching Arrow, Flash, Agents of Shield...you get the idea.

I am a grandma who's in love with her three grands.
Oh and most importantly, I love Jesus. 
I'm married to a very patient, loving and the occasional eyebrow-raising man who works at a local amusement park.
I am a veteran of the U.S.Navy who believes in the Constitution - I understand that puts me on certain lists.  That's ok.  I've been on lists on and off for years. LOL!
And I cross stitch for Pete's sake.   How dangerous can I be?
Oh and dh is a vet too.  2 lists now?
My oldest dd is a vet, married to a geeky guy - also a vet - where do you think I get all my cool info?  She's the mom to those three grands.
My middle dd is married, she's gay ( oh no, another list) and I love her wife.  She's going to be a corrections officer, a cop and maybe work for the U.S. Fish and Wildlife - my dd not her wife.  Though her wife wants to work with kids - now there's a worthy cause.
My son is a hard working young man who also works at said amusement park - they often confuse the two - not sure why since they are both so different.

So, much to the amusement of many, I'm back to blogging.  I talk about lots of things...but this is so very important so pay attention - I don't give out spoilers for TV shows and movies.
Seriously, haven't you been watching a show, recorded it for later, and then someone gets on Facebook or sends out and email and says did you see....how could they have done that to him (or her).
I also post finishes to my cross stitch projects...like the below...the grands can't read yet so I know they won't be looking here...Two girls and a boy...did the pink and purple give it away?  One loves pink and princesses, one loves purple and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, and ones loves video games.  They all love Lego (surprise!), baking, and crafts.  TAKE THAT NO GENDER DECEMBER!
 I also belong to a group called Stitch from Stash - using what you have instead of going out and buying more.  I could use some of that help!  I'll be posting how I'm doing on that at the end of every month.
So, there you have it...just me. Politically incorrect.
Just stuff.  And having fun with it all!
Thanks for joining me!
Oh and by the way, I just learned how to share a phone number on my phone through a text message without having to write it down first and then retype it into a text message.  Yeah, I'm real dangerous.
