Week At A Glance from From the Strawberry Patch...

I had all sorts of good intentions to keep up with this blog. Really. But, then, life has a way of interfering. It's okay, it's all good! And so, a random post detailing the week at a glance. Our two youngest grandchildren have returned from Florida, their precious little family is reunited once again. They're all staying here until their major home renovation becomes a habitable home once

Third In A Series from From the Strawberry Patch...

This past weekend was a repeat of our "one on one" grandchildren weekends, which, in actuality, should be called "one on two" as we've been hosting one child at a time with both grandparents! This past weekend it was Mason's turn. We picked him up on Friday afternoon in the Capital City and enjoyed every minute of his company. Now a fourth grader, Mason loves to read and play sports.

Connecting with the past from Quilting with Kimberly

Thank goodness for digital cameras and photos. When Kent and I transitioned from using our old cameras with film for the relatively new digital photo technology in 2006, we were able to see and store all of our photos on our computers. Storage wasn’t an issue; sorting through all of them was. But all of those printed photos, slides and negatives we had acquired leading up to our digital transition were unceremoniously stored (i.e. “dumped”) into bins, any available boxes, and plastic tubs and carried with us through all of our many military moves. Those photos almost never ...

Loads of Blueberries from Ravelly1

My cousins were given several containers of blueberries & of course immediately thought to bring then to me right in the middle of the end of hay season around here....sigh. So I put aside my other duties & plunged into canning. I looked online for easy recipes & thank goodness, found one that said boil them until there was a sort of thick brew, add a couple of cups of sugar & boil that for awhile. I them remembered my friend Gene's recipe adding gelatin, so I threw some of that in & proceeded with the jars/lids/hot bath thingy. After the ...

A special weekend, travel, and more from Quilting with Kimberly

The birthday 

People gathered on the Santa Monica pier to watch the sunset.

Wow! The past couple of weeks have flown by! I can’t believe we’re already in mid-September with the fall season fast approaching. Since I blogged last time, I celebrated a quiet but lovely birthday with my sweetheart who treated me to a fabulous dinner out and a lovely birthday cake from a local bakery. 

We dined at The Lobster right on the Santa Monica pier.

The Lobster sits at the beginning of the famed Santa Monica pier.

A trip to Ohio for a week of ...

Grandpa’s Girl from Quilting with Kimberly

The Adventurer

My maternal grandfather, Eugene Ernest Dale, was a true adventurer. He was the youngest child in a very large family, born in May 1906 and he died on his 81st birthday in 1987. When I was born to my folks late in their lives he was already advancing in years, lived in the hills of West Virginia, and I didn’t see him very often. I remember him as a spry, handsome man with snow white hair and a twinkle in his eye. Grandpa Dale was a world traveler in every sense of the word. My Mom told ...
