Wow, I can't believe that we've been home 2 weeks already. Time has seriously flown and we've been majorly busy. I am glad however to be able to start up INSTAFriday again hopefully you guys will join in.
I can't tell you how happy I was to be home and be able to enjoy the view from our 2nd floor terrace. We live in the city but Croats are so good at gardening their yards that it almost feels like we're in a garden. I love it!
Funny story: Growing up my mother always had Wisteria planted in every yard we ever had. She loved it and I love it. So 15 years ago when we bought a house here I went and bought some Wisteria and planted it in my yard. Well a year and a half later we had to sell that house when the Dollar plummeted. Anyhow, we have since moved 5 times and every time I've planted a wisteria in my yard. The problem is, Wisteria takes up to 7 years to bloom. So I would plant it but then we'd move before it bloomed so I've yet to see a Wisteria bloom in my yard. So when we moved here almost 2 years ago I planted Wisteria again. This time I actually went to the national pastor's wife (they bought the house we sold where the first Wisteria was planted) and got some of the very first Wisteria I planted here in Croatia 15 years ago. It's very happily growing in my yard in two different places. I have seen it bloom yet but I have great hopes it will before we leave this house.
Until then, I'll enjoy looking at my neighbors Wisteria that grows up over the roof of out out buildings.
I told you guys not long ago, (or did I?) that a baby was being born in our church and they were naming her after me. We'll here I am meeting Tory for the very first time. She is an amazingly good baby and she's beautiful. She's so similar to her namesake. HA! Anyhow, here she is, Tory. What an honor.
Did I tell you I started crocheting? We'll I did. All those long road trips in the States were so boring and a girl can only sleep so much. So I started with hankies and moved up to blankies. I fell in love with this chunky turquoise and brown yard I found and Michael's. Plus I used a 40% off coupon so that's a win and it's big and chunky so that makes for a quick project. I'm all about seeing progress and quick projects. I probably should be on Ridlin, cause I have a seriously short attention span so quick projects are essential for my happiness and longevity. I'll share when I'm finished.
Our daughter Hannah is one lively young lady. She has always had enough life in her for all of us. She is zany and fun and I thought she was one of a kind till I meet Agatha. Agatha is 75 and she is Hannah's personality twin. I'm so not kidding. She is so much like Hannah it's almost scary. They think alike and she's just as lively at 75 as Hannah is at 18. They are twinseys. Anyhow, we took this photo to send to Hannah when we got back. Agatha is sadly lost without Hannah. She talks about her all the time. It means so much to me to know that Hannah left such a hole in so many hearts, including mine.
Okay so that's INSTAFriday #6 done! I'm actually surprised I had any new photos on my Instagram cause life's been crazy busy here.
I can't wait to see yours! Make sure you link up for INSTAFriday so we can come take a look-see.
