I'm Back!

And Better than EVAH!

2011 was quite the rollercoaster...
One year ago, I lost my dear sweet Grandmother. 

My Mother, my sisters and I were all by her side.  As we had been for so long.  Losing a loved one is never easy, but to watch your loved one suffer for so, so long... well... the suffering just seems so cruel, and the point comes that we pray for the suffering to end. 

Now her pain is over.  But ours still feels so fresh. 
I miss her so much. 
But we have to carry on.
So much has happened in the last year.
We lost one precious Jewel,

we gained another.

There's so much to be thankful for.

Loved ones all around us...
with new life to celebrate.

And that's what it's all about.
and Life.

Checked one off the bucket list...

Wrongs were righted...

In spite of tweedle dee and tweedle dumb ass... 

and their bad intentions.

Kinda back-fired for them...
Didn't it?

(Sorry... I still get a kick out of it!)

My son got his Dad back,
the kids got a new pool...

and Me???

well I finally got my new sewing room!

2012 is shaping up beautifully...
lots of new projects in the works,
and a few surprises that may shock you...

stay tuned!



  1. WOW and back with a vengeance. I LOVE it. So glad to see you happy and smiling and back in the saddle again.
    Yes so much has happened. I see the "x"??? Need more information on that one. And a "new" addition?? WOW Daisy Duck, you are moving along just fine.
    Can't wait to see more of what's happening in your neck of the woods.
    It's snowing again. It's been so damn cold, but we knew it couldn't stay clear of snow, not here anyway.
    Say hi to the princess for me, and I'm truly happy to see you back Daisy. Julie needs to know your back too. Send her an email. She starts school today after work. Months of studying for more money. She'll be able to move anywhere in Canada after this. Hoping for her to move to Ontario.
    Wouldn't that be a kick in the ass?
    Love You Daisy.
    Love Claudie

My Grandmother always told me, "If you hang around with skunks, you're gonna get some stink on you."
