Hello there dear friends! I hope this post finds you enjoying the beauty of Summer. Even though we are mostly confined to our immediate family and surroundings, still, or are mostly on the inside looking out due to endless days of heat, humidity and nothing inbetween! We will choose  beauty and the love we have for each other.  We can see it, touch it, feel it. I am so thankful that I live where I do! I just can't imagine how awful it must be for those living amidst lawlessness! My time since I last wrote has been mostly tied up with medical appointments. The appointments themselves, not an issue,  but the parking and walking, very much so. We have huge hospital complexes here. The one closest to me is St Luke's Bethlehem Campus. This is what it looks like. As the crow flies it is about 5-10 minutes from my house. Traffic lights, well, add another 5-10 minutes.😏   I headed out the other day to have an xray of my knee and some lab work done. For this I nee

Hello there! It's ANOTHER sizzling day here at Deer Haven. A lovely day though, sunny with a breeze rustling the leaves on the trees surrounding the house.  I was awoken this morning by a knock knock knocking. So, in a befuddled state, I tried to locate where the sound was coming from.  Pardon me if I digress here. Next door to our bedroom is what should be a guest room but has been made into my sewing/craft room... where I used to churn out quilts and wall hangings for family and friends.  💖  Dare I show you a picture or two or three?
