I've been so busy lately with work and DIY projects at home, I haven't posted. I really need to catch up to see what everyone's been up to.

One of my coworkers was at LaCabana for 16 days and I had to cover his projects at work, so I've been busy. I'm also doing some projects at home. I made a 2' diameter barn wood clock for our kitchen, wood cornices for the patio door and window in our kitchen and put up a shiplap wall in our master bath. Now I'm making some curtains for the kitchen patio door and the two double hung windows in our master bath. Then my husband and I are replacing carpeting on our 2nd floor with wood flooring. We've ordered it and it should be in this weekend.

We were able to get out on our boat last Saturday and took home 8 black sea bass for the freezer.

We stumbled upon a website that had Bassador rescue puppies. Sooooo, we'll be picking one up on Saturday. This is the breed of dog that Charlie was - in my avatar. Bassett Hound/Black Lab mix, with the sweetest disposition. Cross your fingers for us! I'll post pictures once we get him. 3 months old from Louisiana. We lost Charlie in January and this is the longest we haven't had a dog in our house in almost 25 years.

My bad news is my mom passed away on Sunday. She had Alzheimer's and had been doing poorly over the last couple of years. The last couple of months were a blur as her health declined rapidly. I last saw her on Mother's Day weekend and thought she wouldn't be with us in a month. I told my sister in Utah how poorly she was doing and she came to see her. My sister flew out on Sunday at 6 am to go home and mom passed at 11 am. Her funeral is tomorrow. I don't know why I think I can do this, but I've been writing things down since Sunday about my mother and will ask the priest in the morning to give me a few minutes during the service tomorrow to talk about mom. I surprised my husband tonight after work and told him what I had planned. I read it to him and he loved it. I hope I can do it tomorrow.

I'll catch up with you all soon. Hope everyone's doing well.

Kristin

My sympathy for your mom's passing. When we were in CT on Mother's Day, visited my mom's and maternal grandmother's graves.
I am somewhat still in denial my mom is gone!
