We're Moving!

Hello All,

Hope everyone is making it through the winter okay. We are having Spring in CA. Each morning it is very nippy but warms to 6o degrees. We've had very little rain.

We are moving to Sacramento County to live with my mom, we are going to fix up her house it needs a lot of work. Now since Dave had to go into a home because my mom was not able to care for him she is alone. I can't really get her out of her house, so we will go there. The house is 25 years old. It's in pretty good shape in many ways, but needs paint on the inside, new kitchen, flooring and bathroom updates very bad.
Our house will go on the market in 2 weeks we hope. In the meantime I am running around like a chicken with my head cut off trying to do everything I need to do and how to organize all this is a nightmare. My Father in Law has stepped in to help us and suggested we do the work before moving into my moms house so we can not have so much stress. So we will need to get the money from somewhere up front to do the work. Don't you just love stress! NOT!
I will miss my house so much, it's so cute, I love it. My yard, my garden, My cabinets in the garage my FIL and Steve made. I don't know how this will all happen and work out, but I have to trust in God that he will make it all happen some way for us to be with mom so she does not have to live alone at the age of 81 years. We feel it is the best thing to do. But I do not like Sacramento County at all, but where my mom lives in a small suburb outside the city is a nice area. Praise the Lord for that. Her little town borders on the county line between where we live in Placer County and Sac County. I would say it is about a 25 minute drive from where I live now and since I was 21 years old I l have lived in this small rural town. Oh my how I will miss it. I am happy and sad all at the same time, how is that possible?

It's so sunny out so I am going to show off my sun catcher photo I took the other day, as you know I love suns if you are a reader of my blog.

This is a clear sun crystal ball I make, but I also have a golden crystal ball sun as well.

I recently made a few bracelets check them out they are adorable!

But looks like they were accidentally deleted by me!

Normally we are at church today but my husband is off a fishing trip and Superbowl weekend party with his dad in Reno today. It's ugly out and cold today.
Where is my sun! I miss it and it's only been since yesterday I had my sun.

Check out my previous Post on my Block of the month quilt I will be doing this year it's a quilt and it's called Bertie's Year.

Have a beautiful Sunday!



  1. Oh Wow you do have a lot on your plate. I bet your mom is thankful to have you around to help, wishing you all the best as you start this new chapter in your life, pray that God will keep the stress away and everything goes smoothly.
    Your projects are all just Beautiful, I have started to do a few projects too, gave one to my girlfriend for Christmas but I forgot to take a pic of it before hand.

  2. Hopefully everything will fall into place!
    It is a lot of stress, but you will get though it

  3. Hi Kat, we are going to move too. We plan to put out house for sale in 2 months and downsize. Like you, I am trusting in God for things to work out. There is always stress but I am sure it will be worth it in the end.

  4. Hi Kat,
    I pray for all the best for your move. You will bloom where you are planted because you have faith and that is number one !
    All the best for you and your family . Hugs


Have a wonderful day! ~Kat
