Oh my dear friend What happened to me to neglect my blogfriends so much .
Where has the time gone I was just blogging and nothing else .
Well I guess my Iphone takes much more of my time than I could have known and the things that are possible with my Iphone .....
Facebook Pinterest What's app
To blog I have to have my laptop and my laptop is old and slow ......
( like me hihi )
Having Eva around much more is also a difference
I am old fashioned , when she is with me My phone goes on silence and no tv no radio and no laptop
Just me and her . Playing Singing a lot , cuddling and reading books .
I am not an evening-laptop user .
Have to find a new way.
My new workingroom is also waiting
I must say my life is changing a lot lately and I am finding my way in it .
Now I will go find a chair I can sit on for longer than 5 minutes without pain .
That will help !
Because I want to do things very much I long to do things .....
I will be blogging again and visiting again ....
Hope you are well !

Maria said...

This page in your book made me smile! What an adorable project. It can be made with flea market finds or it can be a very special heirloom made with a grandmother's hankies!
I loved your layout... I remember thinking of how much you must have worked on each page. All those details take time and a lot of creative energy.

I visited my brother and sister in law last night for some extra prayers and hugs and he was having such discomfort with his back (and that was after therapy!)
I hope your back is feeling better today... and that you have been able to rest it.
Wishing you a sweet Sunday, Koralee.
God bless you always,
- Maria

francis said...

well well well
I just visited Anita and Maria and you are not well
Your back is not well .
Oh no ....I am with a bad back for so long now . Each and every day and it is undermining my life so much .
I would be a whole other person without this pain each day .
Of course Eva is a blessing and my children and my very dear friend Saskia .....
It's a lot more work to survive this hard way .
But I am learning to deal with it and my visit to House of Seasons to meet with you and the other bloggers was a BIG step outside for me .
You know life is so much more insecure with a bad back and constantly pain It changes who you are ....
Now I decided if this is what it is I am going to make the best out of this
I pray you will be healing well my friend

Good morning most DARLING and inventive friend!

Ahhhhhh.....I was thinking of you yesterday, as I was out on a sunny Saturday excursion with my husband. He treated me for my birthday and we were out all day long. But i thought of you and your back! Oh how these things take time to heal, and you were out all week from work? I can understand! To keep up with our little charges, we have to be in top form at all times, but a back issue can really make even BREATHING difficult, at least for me!

This apron is sweet as can be. Love and joy, hope and faith are seen in my eyes as COLORS: Bright ones like the ones you use. Oh how I rejoice in knowing you, Koralee!

Much love and healing to you dearest friend. Be well, Anita
