2014 Grow Your Blog

Hi,  I'm participating with Vicki and all her lovely linkers at 2Bags Full in this year's 2014 Grow Your Blog. I like reading and following other blogs to see what y'all are doing and to see what I may be missing out on that I could be doing. My blog is about everything from a-z. You'll hear a lot about family and then I throw in a little sewing, quilting, crocheting, paper banner making, and every craft in between and you'll see a lot of house work and outdoor stuff.

It's a new year. There are already a few new things for me to look forward to this year. For one, 32 days to my retirement. Can't wait to enjoy everyday with no set work schedule. Then we'll be welcoming new grandbaby #3 due May 31st. Babies are always exciting news. I hope your new year brings excitement to your household, too.


Thanks for stopping by and be sure and visit the other bloggers at 2014 Grow Your Blog.



  1. Good morning, Gin! And, happy retirement. Have a great time this weekend at the GYB party. See you soon!

  2. Hey Gin popping in from the GYB team of volunteers. Welcome to the party!

    I'm totally going to have to go and check out "Mom in the Wilderness" as well.
    We live up in Northern ON in a wee shakey shack with no running water. We do have power and ... of course... HIGH SPEED. A gal has to have priorities, right?

    32 days to retirement? Congratulations!!! Wishing you a year of new adventures, fun and love love love.

    Have a great time at the party!

    go easy ~p
