Saturday morning, Ted and I go visit my daughter Kathy's new apartment. It's near her new job.
She is still unpacking. There's room for her to have her sewing machines and crafts.
Ted hooked her headboard to her bed. She made this headboard herself. It was recycled wood. I told her she may want to attach some scones to matching boards, to hang along side , to make it a fuller headboard. It was a bit small for this bed. Kathy started talking about all the pillows she was making for her new bedding. She is a wonderful seamstress.
We were treated to lunch at MCL in Carmel. Ted and I used to go here about once every two weeks. I think we stopped going because of all the roadwork we ran into going here.
I snapped this picture of Kathy, as I laughed about she and Ted sharing cherry cheesecake. Kathy also took us to a Goodwill near her new place. Ted looked for candles and I bought a cute scarf for a dollar.:)
As the day went on , the clouds cleared out, I got this photo of a pretty tree . We did see planes do a fly over while at the Goodwill store. It was in honor of Veteran's Day.
Friday Ted made this pile of leaves in the driveway. He used the lawn rake behind the golf cart again. We loaded these leaves into the trailer and hauled them to the neighbor's woods down the road. It was five trailer loads. That in itself was tiring.
This is after bending over and picking up all the leaves . Ted gets home from dumping the last load, and says he lost his glasses in all those leaves. What!!! Yes, he had his glasses in his jacket pocket and they fell out as he bent over picking the leaves up. So on Sunday, he went to the woods and rake thru all those leaves again. It took him three hours, but he did find his glasses. Hooray. He has an eye dr. appointment coming up soon., and he had a pair of readers thankfully. But to find his glasses in all those leaves, I was amazed.
Today is going to be a pretty day. Right now there a hard frost on the ground. Goodbye bugs. :) Hope you all have a good day. XO
I too am amazed that Ted found his glasses. What are the chances? At least he was persistent to spend three hours doing it. That's a lot of leaves to look through.ReplyDelete
You daughter's new place looks beautiful. She must be very crafty to be able to build her own headboard and make her own pillows. Wow!
Kathy, My daughter's bought her first sewing machine when she was getting married and made her own wedding dress. That machine lasted longer than the marriage, sadly. My daughter has real grit...she came closer to home to start a new life.Delete
Oh Kathy, I laughed so hard thinking of Ted finding those glasses. Amazing. Blessings, xoxo, Susie
All the best to your daughter in her new home. She is very talented to make pretty pillows and a headboard. John lost his glasses in the woods behind our home but never did locate them. Hope you both enjoy this day. xoReplyDelete
Mildred, Thank you for the good wishes for my daughter. She is starting her life all over. She can just about craft anything. She loves making jewelry . Ted finding those glasses was his proverbial needle in a haystack. He amazed me. Blessings to you and your husband, xoxo, SusieDelete
So amazing that your husband found his glasses in all those leaves! That is truly amazing! I hope this new start for your daughter makes the difference for her, she truly does have grit and I love the headboard that she made and I think your idea with the sconces on the side would be lovely! Have a blessed day!ReplyDelete
Marilyn, My daughter has the best sense of direction....she knows her way around her new town already. LOL. She doesn't mind all the roundabouts either. The mayor of her town is notorious for having roundabouts built. My tummy has hurt so much for my daughter's leap into a new life. You know we moms tend to worry. Blessings to you and yours, xoxo, SusieDelete
Nice headboard. I have been asking the husband to make me one similar. she did good.ReplyDelete
I know your husband could do a great job. Just buy some old lumber or recycle pallets boards. I will show f she puts up some sconces. Blessings, xoxo, SusieDelete
LOL- That is kind of like finding a needled in a haystack for him to find his glasses.ReplyDelete
Well, now we are even closer connected. Your daughter and mine both live in the same town.
You know, if Kathy reads in bed she could find a pair of matching sconces/bed lamps and attach them to each side of the headboard. That would fill the space in, too.
I love her apartment complex and I am going to ask Mindy if she knows about that lunch place. xo Diana
Diana, I told Ted he will be wearing a chain hooked to his glasses, if he keeps being careless. LOL I wish you could have seen his smile after finding them:):)Delete
I think we could all meet up at the MCL for lunch when you visit your daughter. They have every kind of food. It's near a World Market, Goodwill, Just lots of shops and food places. I do think Kathy will add some sconces to fill out the place by the headboard so it appears bigger. She is loving the town of Carmel. It's truly her cup of tea. :) Diana, I still worry for her to be happy and find her niche in life. It's her time now. I know you truly understand.Blessings, love, xoxo, Susie
Best wishes to your daughter in her new home! Scones would be perfect to go alonside the headboard! That's very crafty she made the headboard herself! I love DIY projects! I can't wait to show some of the new DIY's I made for Christmas on my blog next month!ReplyDelete
Thank you so much Pilar. I still worry for Kathy. She is brave to start a whole new life. I am just happy she lives closer to all of us now...she was over two hours away, now it's like 30 -45 minutes. I am eager to see your Christmas crafts. I need to make some things myself. LOL. Blessings to you honey. xoxo, SusieDelete
Susie: Talk about finding a needle in a hay stack! Glad he found them. Her apartment looks cute. It is fun to see how she will fix it up, isn't it?..xxoJudyReplyDelete
Judy, I am anxious to see how my daughter gets her craft room in order. She wants to sew and make jewelry...which she is so good doing. I need to post some of her things. Ted is smiling all the time now thinking about his luck finding the glasses. LOL. Blessings, xoxo, SusieDelete
I read your post to my hubby and we were amazed that he found his glasses. We've done things like that...like finding a needle in a haystack. WHEW! Hugs!ReplyDelete
Oh Diane, Ted is just thrilled with himself over the finding of his glasses. Cracks me up. I think his tale gets more dramatic as he tells everyone. LOL. Blessings, xoxo, SusieDelete
It really was a lucky day for him to find his glasses..reminds me when a contact would pop out and I found it....Carmel is a great town to live in. The headboard she made looks good and maybe placing something on each side will fill it out more.ReplyDelete
Cathy, every time I think opf contacts, I think of my daughter's friend Karen. She put hers in for the first time after spending the night here...she says, "Look Angie, I have it in my eye." My daughter says, "I think it's on your eyelashes. "LOL Karen had to try again.Funny the things we remember. Blessings, xoxo, SusieDelete
I'm glad Ted found his glasses, that was a lot of leaves to look through! It made me smile, because it sounds exactly like something BG would do.ReplyDelete
Your daughter has a nice place and I know you are glad to have her closer to you. I love having our daughter close by. The headboard she made looks great and I will show it to my daughter. She has been thinking about making one.
Have a nice week!
Well we know our men. LOL he should have taken them in the house or buttoned the pocket they were in...I do have to watch him every now and then. LOL. He was persistent. :):) Cheryl, my daughter starting all over has put a big knot in my tummy for sure. We want our children happy and successful. She was the one that I could picture owning a shop, or traveling everywhere with a backpack. (filled with coffee and protein bars). Taking bird pictures. :) Blessings, xoxo, SusieDelete
That's nice that you went to see Kathy's apartment, Susie. And a trip to Good Will after, that sounds fun. I've never bought clothes or purses there, only house items. I can't believe Ted found his glasses in that BIG pile of leaves. I am always impressed with all the yard work he does. He must be so tired and sore afterwards.ReplyDelete
Have a lovely week, Susie.
ps.....I loved the story about your granddaughter texting you and thanking you for just being you. : )
Sheri, Kathy buys things at G.W. and reworks them. Always wash anything you get for the G.W. Anything that could have bugs creeps me out. LOL. Kathy's apartment is a nice one and not cheap...so hopefully no crime area.Delete
I was warm and happy all day yesterday because of the text from Sierra. Blessings, xoxo, Love,Susie
I have to keep a bunch of reading glasses as backups, because I am always losing them. Glad he found his glasses. xo LauraReplyDelete
Laura, My eye dr. told me to keep getting glasses when my insurance would allow, so I could have spares in case of loss or breakage. Blessings to you. xoxo, SusieDelete
Yes! Bye bye, BUGS! Love that!ReplyDelete
Wow! Amazing that the glasses were found!
Wish you could have seen Ted's smiling face when he found those glasses. LOL. Oh yes, I am glad the flying bugs are gone for now. But then it's too cold to sit outside for long. LOL. Blessings to you, xoxo, SusieDelete
Sounds like you had a great ime!! Thanks so much for stopping by!
