Yes, I Am Still Blogging!

No I haven't stopped blogging. Thank you so much for emailing or letting me know you miss me. I miss you too. In fact I think about this a lot and all of the people I've met and great friends I've made. The world wide web is amazing, I tell ya! But you already know that.
I have so much to say...my mind never stops, but how much of it is of interest to all y'all out there, or am I just processing the daily routine of our lives?
And so...an update...
The college son is home for the holidays. He was interviewed yesterday for an article in the February issue of the University magazine.
The high school son is participating in a leadership conference today with one of our US Senators. He's one of two chosen from his high school.
The little girl finally figured out what she wants for Christmas. Ah, the excitement of childhood.
Mr. Romantic Porch feels terribly that we're having such fits with this computer.
Mrs. Romantic Porch is working on a "fund raising idea" to buy a new computer!!!
Since the first of November I've done alterations or redesigns on 45 garments and made 6 window treatments...gotta get off of here and finish up two dresses before 10:45 am for gala/parties tonight and tomorrow.
The dress in the photos only needed to be enlarged by 8 1/2 inches. It was an amazing MILANO creation!
And so, I will be back!

I thought that very interesting about Jonathan being interviewed for the university magazine, because we received our current one yesterday and was searching for his picture. Grandpa thought he might have found one, but I don't think so. We will be looking forward to our Feb. issue. Wow, how impressive is that for Daniel! He is such a talented young man. Love the young lady and the rest of you too. This has turned out loooong. :~)

Wow, Rachel, you are able to do amazing creative things. I've never attempted to sew and or alter a gorgeous dress like that. I'm so glad you are still blogging. Congratulations to your boys for their accomplishments. That is wonderful. I hope your computer problems go away soon. Hugs, Kathi
