November Challenge Update

You may remember my post from 10/28 about No Shave November...well these guys hung in there and
Mr. Leslee aka Scott, Mr. Kelly Ann aka Andrew, Mr. Angie aka Dave
I think they did a good job of keeping their beards growing. I think I heard that Mr. Angie is gonna be shaving today, and Mr. Kelly Ann is thinking about it, but Mr. Leslee is gonna keep it for a bit.

Leslee took the money we raised and sent it off to St. Jude's Children Research Hospital

Ever since opening the doors at Kelly Ann's Quilting I felt it was my responsibility to give back to the community that gave so much to me. We've collected for the local food banks, the Fauquier SPCA, the Safe Shelter for women and children, the homeless shelter, breast cancer research, Salvation Army, Quilts of Honor, and few I am sure I am missing. 

For December, I'll be collecting goodies for the Fauquier SPCA, ending 2018 with giving to the many pups and kitties searching for their families. So if you live in the local area, while out doing your Christmas shopping, pick up a toy or treats or even a bag/can of food for the four-legged kids waiting for Santa. 

Until Next Time
Be Kind

A Dream

Warning...this blog post may cause some tears, but believe me, that are happy ones. I had a dream last night, and my father was in it. Now for those of you that don't know, I lost my father in 2013, and there isn't a day that goes by that I don't think of him. I'm sure I've had dreams about him, but they never seemed real...this one was real. Let me set the dream up for you... I was back in my hometown, Havelock North Carolina, and shopping for some type of necklace, and I hear a voice behind me "not that one, pick the blue one"... I turn around, and there was my father, I started screaming and crying, screams, and tears of joy because there was my father in the flesh. We had a nice long hug, and I asked where he had been because I knew he hadn't been around for almost a full 7 years. It seems that he had been pulled for a special mission with the government and couldn't tell any of us, including my mom. Now, speaking of my mother, she doesn

2021 = Self-Care

 2020 wasn't the best of years, it wasn't the worst, but that is behind us and I'm looking forward to 2021 that is full of blank pages. Walk with me, cook with me, read with me, craft with me...just come out and hang with me. Until Next Time Be Kind


Isn't it funny how there are certain things that can cause a major discussion...religion, politics and the weather.  Spending a good chunk of my life in Eastern North Carolina... See that little town, Havelock, yep that's where I grew up...anyway back to the weather. Ya see, growing up there I know a thing or two about humidity, to say it's thick is an understatement. The threat of hurricanes coming up the coast was an annual event and we took it in stride because that's what you do.  Snow...don't go there, when it snows everything stops, seriously, no road salt trucks, plows, what's that?  In 1989 there was a snowstorm to beat all snowstorms, poor Skip (the local weather legend) is still talking about it. Sitting on my front porch in Virginia this Sunday morning the air is so thick I can actually see it and you can almost taste it..yep it's THICK...and ya know what it feels pretty good.  But ya know what feels better, the a/c when you do walk back
