I am joining in with Elle Luna and Lindsay Jean Thompson for #the100dayproject. If you haven't heard of it you can find more info here but basically you chose do to something for 100 days and document it on instagram with a unique hashtag. My unique hashtag on Lisa Johnson (@intheboondocks) • Instagram photos and videos will be #100daysofAurifilThread

In the last couple weeks I kept seeing on Instagram what others were going to do and kept trying to think of something original I could do even though I wouldn't be home for much during the next couple months! I always carry some thread around with me! I know I am a little weird but it comes in handy!

You see my oldest daughter is due to deliver baby Lilly May 1st! So, I will be going to Norfolk, Virgina to stay a few weeks. Then in June, my youngest daughter will have major surgery on her panaceas again! We will go to Cincinnati, Ohio for the surgery and a hospital visit for a week or two. Then back to her home in Lexington, Kentucky until she can get around on her own. Which means climbing the stairs to the second floor of her home. Last year it was only a few weeks but the surgery was just repairing the hernias from the spleen rupture of 2015. Keep us in your prayers!

I don't know what I would do without my wonderful Mother who stays home and helps care for David or my Husband who drives me, drops me, then rushes home to help at home! I am lucky I have a great family support system that helps at home that includes my In-Laws.

Day 1 #100DaysofAurifilThread


My oldest today!

I will be posting while I am gone! So keep your eye open to see what I can think up to do with Aurifil Thread! The company has sponsored me for years! I love the product and it has so many uses! Be prepared for fun!

Thank you for following along! Lisa



  1. praying for safety for your travels, baby and surgery. You will be only about an hour's drive from me when you get to Lexington. hope you be able to enjoy some of our bluegrass.

  2. Hope all goes well for all of you. I can't wait to see what you create!

  3. It sounds like everyone needs prayers to keep this multitude of people and events going steady! God's blessings on all of you, and particularly your daughters, but also especially you, the caregiver and helper in all that happens. The 100 days of Aurifil is a great project! Best of luck finding something for each day!

  4. Oh my you have a full plate! I certainly can relate. My son is so self sufficient but my girls NEED their Mama ALL the time!! I did not know about your youngest daughter. Did she have an accident? Either way, prayers from me for those fields and for you to have the stamina to hold up to all that caregiving. I'm not the Energizer Bunny like I used to be!
    Have a Blessed Easter...He Is Risen!
