A New Summertime Sampler Freebie, Abbie, and Starting a New Blog

Good Sunday morning, ya'll!  I started after much thought, a new blog on aging and skin care. I really want to incorporate some fun and facts which include any subject for women about aging, not just skin care and body care but also topics to help through this lifetime process we all take. I hope to utilize my experience as a women's health nurse practitioner to also share some late research on the subject, do product reviews as well.

Join me as I start conversations about positive attitudes, encouragement, some latest research about aging, skin care and beauty, exercise, healthcare, and anything pertaining to going through the aging process.

You can find it here.   The name is Aging Gracefully and Skin Care. I named it in part and honor of my grandmother Grace who left this life way to early at age 57 and who was everything I want to be in positive aging.

I have just posted a welcome note but plan to post something really soon!!

For your enjoyment, I designed a cross stitch summer piece. I hope you enjoy!

Summertime and Patience

Colors and linen of choice. 

just click on the pattern and if this does not work to make it larger, let me know so I can try to correct it. If you do stitch it up, please share with me, so I can put on the blog or just for encouragment. I have not stitched a model of this one up yet.

I picked the yellows/golds and greens just as preference. I love to watch the yellow butterflies around the homestead here. This summer definitely has challenged my patience, or should I say grown more patience.

On the homefront, I've been super busy at work, and finishing up a forensic examiner class. BUT!
I did bind off on my shawl and when I get my Ipad camera rolling this afternoon will include a picture of it. I really, really like it!  And last night here in the mountains was the perfect night to use it while on the porch. It turned really cool, much cooler than last week.

This is probably the hottest June I've ever seen in the past 14 years I've lived here. But no complaints because I love each season for just what it is and the cool summer nights and warm days with longer daylight, I love the most.

Speaking of Miss Abbie....................

Abbie has a hard life. No honestly, she loves this old pillow I was going to throw out. It was a 6.00 one from Walmart and had seen it's last day for me but she claimed it by the front door before I could carry to the trash. She is in serious yoga mode here.

While this spoiled one here pushes herself to get inside my robe, I just had to take a quick pic of her, so I opened up the side of the robe to show you that she must have part kangaroo in her. She loves to hang on in the pouch part of the robe. Silly Girl!

She loves her back rubs.

She now has Minties added to her diet, which are small bones that are green and replaces brushing her teeth,  guarenteeing to remove plague and good for her teeth. The doctor said she had plague so now at 830pm at night, my DH tells her it's time  "to brush her teeth" and she runs over where we give her this mint thing and she eats it in 3 minutes and loves them. I really didn't think she would eat them but then again, she has eaten an EOS lip balm in Strawberry Mint by mistake so it didn't surpise me. You can get these by weight of your dog, at Walmart.

Have a great peaceful Sunday,
