Happy Mother’s Day and Some Big News

I had the pleasure of spending Mother’s Day with my dear Mom—we went to early church and to lunch at Charlotte Plummer’s for a wonderful meal.  I am thankful to have my Mom in my life, I am grateful for all she does and for how she keeps our family strong and close.  IMG_6882

And now for the big news—we are going home—for good.  For a while Michael has struggled with the physical demands of this job—Rollie was wonderful about this issue finding Michael a job he could do from an air conditioned office which was to have started today.  While we were home this weekend being with family it is apparent our place right now at this time is in Montana.   It is our choice to return to Montana and our choice to provide love, help and support to family. 

We spent the day packing up the quilting studio—how in the world did I accumulate so much extra stuff while down here???  Michael is being a trooper and has found spots for everything so far.  Now if I just don’t find several more bolts of fabric, we will be OK.

Our only issue right now at the present moment—we have one too many vehicles for two people to drive home.  I listed the Cadillac on Craigslist and only got the usual idiot brains who want to know minutes after you post the ad, “is this still for sale?”  I texted one and said, “what do you think???”  I didn’t say what I wanted to say which was “what do you think idiot brain!!!”   I also got one text which went something like this, “I am buying for my inlaws, will have to pay with PayPal, it is tied to my bank account……ya, ya, ya!!”   YUCK!! 

So, that’s our big news—in a few days time we will be rolling up the driveway in the motorhome.


  1. Going home is always a good thing. Home is where we belong.

  2. We can certainly tell where you got your beauty from. Your Mom is gorgeous. Welcome back to Montana. Life sometimes takes really different twists and they are usually the right choice. Good luck.

  3. Great news & good for you guys. Your hearts are in the right place. Now get yerselves on back home to those big Montana mountains & that there big Montana sky:))

  4. What beautiful ladies you and your Mom are! Made me smile just to look at your picture. (and made me miss my own Mom a lot). It is so good to read posts that are so positive... sounds like you know exactly what's best for you. Go for it!

  5. Wonderful picture of you and your Mom. See ya when you get home!

  6. You have had a great time there and now it just seems right to come home. It is good to listen to the messages when they are so strong. And I hope we can get together this summer. Travel safe!

  7. I have to agree with the rest of the crowd...gorgeous picture of you and your Mom!! You are so lucky to have her in your life!! Montana is so beautiful I can see you wanting to make tracks for home!!

    1. Same as what Paulette said. I was wondering how you were going to make out during the hot Texas summer ahead - won't matter now!

  8. I'm not surprised. Safe travels back home.

  9. You have good reason to head back to the mountains of Montana. Family comes first - always. Wishing you a great drive back.

    Jeanette and I concur with the other comments. That is one really nice photo of you and your mom. My mom is gone but Jeanette's is still well and vibrant.

  10. Happy Mother's Day to you and your Mom! It's wonderful you could be together. There is no place like home! So glad you had the experiences working down in Texas. I enjoyed all the news and pictures, but I love your Montana home! I'm so glad you are both returning to stay. Emmi will be happy too I'm sure!

  11. Sounds like a great decision, after all, family is what life is about:)

  12. It'll be nice to be heading home (and to actually get there). We're heading that way, too. Be safe and enjoy the trip. .

  13. Hooray for you! Please give your beautiful mom a big hug and tell her hello from us. Safe travels, we'll see you this summer!

  14. Lovely picture of you and your mom!!

    Isn't it nice to have the freedom to make a decision to change your life as you want to change it! Travel safely to Montana!

  15. Beautiful picture of you and your mother. Life is all about following our hearts and your hearts are in Montana. Wish we were closer and could take that car off your hands. Have a safe trip.

  16. "Like Mother, Like Daughter" so beautiful. And, "Home is where the heart is" and I believe your heart is in Montana. I've only been through Montana once and it was beautiful. I'm looking forward to your blogs with all those beautiful Montana pictures. I sure hope you keep your blog going.

  17. Hey I know this is off topic but I was wondering if you knew
    of any widgets I could add to my blog that automatically tweet my newest twitter updates.
    I've been looking for a plug-in like this for quite some time and was hoping maybe you would have some experience with something like this. Please let me know if you run into anything. I truly enjoy reading your blog and I look forward to your new updates.

    Howdy Janna, Mike & Emmi,
    I started reading at the bottom and just saw where y'all were' escaping' back to the mountains... GOOD, I was worried that the heat & humidity would 'HURT' y'all, if it got HOT like in the past couple of years.. Also, you can be among people who'll be civil to you, even if you don't give'em $$$... Mike needs to work on his 'projects' and not try to do toooooo much!!!! 4-5 hours a day is not a killer like 12 hours!!! Take good care of him & Emmi.

    You could stop by here and rest a spell before heading on home, if you'll TAKE THE TIME!!! At least 'blow' as you pass by!!!
