February Happenings

I'm trying to get back to Blogging.
The time off was enjoable but
 I missed being creative.

I tied to find my voice by writing.
Not here, but letters and emails to 
It was an outlet to state my concerns and thoughts.
But I wasn't heard!
I remember years ago, I wrote to my local represenitives. 
They either wrote back or even called me!
Times have really changed!!!

So, I have come back, to be creative and 
share my interests and life.

I still participate in causes.
I joined our church for,  March For Life.
Here we are at the end of our walk, 
at the Boise's capitial.


Kimmy and family wanted to go skiing, one more time.
We headed up to McCall.
I went along to help out with the two littles, who don't ski yet.
Of course, I'd go for any reason!
Tom couldn't make it.
(Read to the end to find out why)






It was a fun weekend!


Below is a series of pictures that Kimmy took.
We needed an updated picture of Tom and I,
for our church directiory.

Guess which one we used?


The other day, we had sunshine and short sleeve shirtweather.
Ahh... so nice!
Two of our grandsons came over to help get our
 gardens ready for Spring planting!

This is Silas cleaning out dead plants from our pots.

 Levi built metal, raised, vegetable gardens.

It is so wonderful to have helpers who can 
really HELP!

It didn't take long!

Then a week later......


Banjo is happy


This is the day we have been waiting for!
Tom had his hip replaced!
This guy has gone through so much 
pain for the last year! 

We searched and searched for a Doctor,
plus a hospital that would take us and our philosophy.
Tom has previously, had both knees and one hip replaced.

Now,  he had the other hip replaced.

Rejoicing and standing up right 
right after surgery.

It was a Day Surgery 
so we were home by evening.

Even Banjo was smiling!!

 Tom is in recovery today and doing really well.


singing .... H A L L E L U J A H !!

"Keep your lives free from the love of money and be content with what you have, because God has said, "Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you." So we say with confidance,"The Lord is my helper; I will not be afraid. What can mere mortals do to me." 

Hebrews 13: 5-6



  1. Will pray for Tom and his recovery. I love all the wonderful pictures. You and Tom are such a cute couple. Hugs and blessings to you. Cindy

  2. Wow, that's great! He must be so happy it's behind him and he's on his way to full recovery! And yes, nothing is as it used to be...and I agree it's sad. I hope some creativity will help, it's my zen place,too. xo

  3. So nice to see a post from you Christine, like you I want to get back to blogging.
    I am so happy Tom is doing well, and that you were able to spend time with the grandchildren making forever memories!
    Things have really changed in our government, sad to say not for the better!
    Thanks for sharing.

  4. Oh my goodness, this entry didn't show up on my Bloglovin feed!

    I'm so glad you and your husband were able to find a good hospital with good protocols and such! What a blessing!

    I know how you feel on writing and not receiving responses, things really have changed. People don't seem to have manners and people who should know better especially those in those particular positions. I was just telling my daughters that I wrote President Reagan a letter encouraging him and I received a beautiful card back specifically thanking me for encouragements with the Presidential Seal on it. Even representatives that disagreed with my letters back then would respond. *sigh* I just don't understand so many things now a days. Even people who have blogging platforms who are telling others how to live don't live it in the integrity department and oh it makes me sad. My flesh would like to call it out but I know God's got it. : )

    God bless you! I'm looking forward to future posts! yay!

  5. You have been busy! Glad Tom is doing so well with the hip replacement. I understand about not blogging very much. I am in the same place.
