my favorite blog


I've decided to revive my favorite blog. I seem to have a blog hoarding problem, since I've had 4 blogs since I first began blogging. I started with For Goodness Sake, which became my catering blog. Then I decided I needed an Oklahoma blog, so I created this one, which is still my favorite. My foray into crafting prompted me to launch Talking Stash. I posted very little on that one, but I still love the name and might choose to bring it back to life.

When we moved to Katy Texas I blogged new adventures as Katy Rose. Now that we have moved to Magnolia, I hesitate to start yet another blog, so I will return to my roots. Even though I love Texas, at heart I am still an Okie.

The moving process has not been fun. I'm not sure anyone on the planet would say "I sure enjoyed packing up a 3330 square foot house and moving everything into a 2400 sq ft house". In spite of it all, the job opportunity was welcome, the proximity to our son and DIL and grands (6 miles!) was a big draw, and we do love this part of south Texas with its gentle hills and pine trees. And who wouldn't love this view from my sewing room!


When we lived in Katy I had a loft for my crafts and a sewing room for my quilting. These hobbies will now share space with our one guest bedroom, which has gone through quite a transformation from this before we bought it.


To this when we first moved in.


 

To this - it's getting there!

    1. Thank you! My room is already back into upheaval. I just can't seem to make a decision.

  2. Reading this blog is going to be so much fun. I sympathize with your move. After three and a half years, we finally got a contract on our house. I've been living in the new one and my husband has been living in the old one. Would you believe that we got the contract on the day that he was having hip replacement surgery? I have no idea how we're going to move all of his stuff out of there and into the new place (or where we'll put it) by the 11th of October. If you hear screaming, it will be me.

    1. Wow I had no idea! Well I'm glad you finally got a contract, but I'll send some positive vibes for a solution to the move of your hubby's "stuff". ;)

  4. I ran across your blog when I was researching Yousef Khandar, the internationally recognized photographer. I perused your blog and never figured out why it popped up in a mess of his pictures. However, I've read some of your archives and as a fellow "Okie" spirit, relived some of the weather and earthquake experiences of the last several years. It brought back some memories. I'll have to try the pecan toffee bars, they sound good. We live in SW Okla. I too have several blogs, but seem to learn towards one specific, my favorite is http://reddirtcowgirldrivesagain.blogspot.com/

    1. Elaine, I once had a link to Yousef Khanfar on this blog! I'm glad you landed here; it's always nice for me to meet a fellow Okie blogger. I'm adding your "favorite" to my bookmarks.
