Again

He's leaving again and it's far too soon. This time it's ten times more difficult. I'm so scared and every time I think about it I can feel the hot tears in my eyes. When I feel like this the only thing I want to do is go home. My hearts breaks again and again, my home is with him.

Red Friday

I received this in an email today. I'll be wearing red this Friday.
Red Fridays. Very soon, you will see a great many people wearing red every Friday. The reason? Americans who support our troops used to be called the "silent majority." We are no longer silent, and are voicing our love for God, country and home in record breaking numbers. We are not organized, boisterous or overbearing. Many Americans, like you, me and all our friends, simply want to recognize that the vast majority of America supports our troops. Our idea of showing solidarity and support for our troops with dignity and respect starts this Friday -- and continues each and every Friday until the troops all come home, sending a deafening message that....every red-blooded American who supports our men and women afar, will wear something red.
By word of mouth, press, TV, email -- let's make the United States on every Friday a sea of red much like a homecoming football game in the bleachers. If every one of us who loves this country will share this with acquaintances, coworkers, friends, and family, it will not be long before the USA is covered in RED and it will let our troops know the once "silent" majority is on their side more than ever, certainly more than the media lets on.
The first thing a soldier says when asked "What can we do to make things better for you?" is .."We need your support and your prayers." Let's get the word out and lead with class and dignity, by example, and wear something red every Friday.

The Pea Quilt


TS loves peas. If he could only eat 1 meal for the rest of his life it would be pork chops and peas. He loves peas from a can, frozen peas, fresh peas and peas in a pod. Our favourite snacks are sweet peas or pea salad. He loves peas.
My friend Lynnie's sister in law made her a wonderful pea quilt to Christmas. When TS saw it later he loved it. Its warm and cozy and a tribute to his favourite food. I had her made another one for TS. His quilt is a little more black and darker, but it's perfect for him. It's his Valentine's Day gift and he's going to love it.
PS. That's Clemie testing it out.
