HOME!

I'm HOME! I landed in San Diego early yesterday afternoon. The day was long,I had to be at RDU in Raleigh by 5:15am, but  both of my connections where on time and the flights uneventful. Although it was hard to leave my children and GB's, it's nice to be home with my hubby. Hopefully, sometime with in the next year we will be back on the East Coast.

What glorious weather I experienced while in NC,though. Warm, sunny and low humidity. I couldn't have asked for anything more perfect. Unfortunately, N County is in the May gray,June gloom months with 
cooler temperatures and very little sun. Of course, the other 10 months have near perfect weather, so I shouldn't be complaining!

Some reflection:
On the last Friday evening at my daughter Stephanie's home, I rocking my granddaughter on the patio enjoying holding and cuddling  her. As I was sitting there, I was  entertained by a Robin digging for his "worm supper",(I haven't seen a Robin in SO long) watched the fireflies dance around the yard at dusk, and enjoyed the sweet fragrance of  Honeysuckle that filled the cool night air. These simple sights and sounds reminded me of the God who created them. The one who knew they would put a smile on my face and make my heart sing. I believe that is why I enjoy camping.  I love being out surrounded by the sights, sounds and smells of His creation.

Have a wonderful and blessed Thursday.Today is catching up opening and sorting mail, doing wash, and some cleaning.I hope I'll be able to do something CRAFTY in a few days. I have lots of ideas floating around  in my head. We'll see how many actually get created.;)

Some Recent Pictures:

Stay CRAFTY my friends!

More baby news

Well here it is day 10 of my time here in NC/VA. My trip to VA to visit my son and his family was a sweet time. It's really a blessing to see adult children and their interaction with their families.  I'm so proud of each of them.

I honestly have forgotten how much time newborns add to your day. Annabelle is a sweetheart, but is wearing her Mama out some even with my help. That sleep deprevation is not a easy adjustment. Maybe when you're in college, but not for healing and for running a household. (Steph had a c-section) But as I have told her,  this to will pass and she just needs to be patient with herself.

Some new pictures. The first one is Steph  and  Annabelle.  The cutie in the pink dress is Kate.

I'm going to lunch with a long time friend this afternoon. It's always a blessing to get together when I come into town.

Have wonderful day and some crafting for me!  😊

Hugs,
Bernie Bee

Hanging with Grandbabies

I'm here in North Carolina and Virginia for the next 3 weeks.  Spending time with my 2 new granddaughters and 3 sweet grandsons. Victoria Kate was born the 2nd week in April and Annabelle was just a week old yesterday. My son Joel and his wife are expecting their 1st baby in about 5 weeks. They are expecting a girl also! This will be our 11th. grandchild and we are so excited and anxious to welcome her, and so thankful to the Lord for blessing us so abundantly.

I have been looking at all the wonderful card samples on different sites and hope to be back in full gear by the 2nd week in June.  I was planning on having projects made and posted automatically before I left, but lost my mojo. I'd walk into my Studio and just leave. Ugh! I hate when that happens. Not even the challenge sketch blogs motivated me. Sad, but true.
I hope you have a wonderful and blessed weekend. Go do something CRAFTY!
HUGS, Bernie Bee
