Micro Vacation!

My place of work is having a “All you can eat Soup Lunch” to raise money for the American Cancer Society.  The menu is Potato Soup or 2X4 Soup, with all the fixings, desserts, and drinks.

I volunteered to make a “food run” this morning. We were a little short on carrots and ham.  I thought “micro vacation!” but then realized when I walked back into the office how badly I wanted to stay out.

It is beautiful today.  The sun is shining, there’s a breeze, birds were singing… just beautiful!

While I was out, I ran by the post office and gave the quilting book to Sandra.    She was pleasantly surprised and offered to pay for the book.  I denied payment and told her if she gets hooked on quilting, she’s going to love it and that the book had helped me out a lot when I started quilting.

It was nice… giving a smile to another.

Thought for today:
This morning I received a quote in my email that I liked.
Death is more universal than life;
everyone dies but not everyone lives.
 ~ A. Sachs~
Are You Living?

God bless and keep you,

PS.  Check out the poll I have going on at the top of my page.   Place a vote and let’s see the results at the end of the week!

I'm a happily married mom of two, living in Arkansas and selling AVON. Both of my children are grown and in college. I often wonder where the time went. I never thought I'd have blog but when blogs came along, I jumped on board. That just goes to show one doesn't know what the future holds. I was born in 1967 but my life truly began in 1996. That is the year I realized I need God in my life. That is the year I asked Jesus Christ into my life. So, you will see, as you follow my blog, there will be mention of God, Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit from time to time. I can't live without sharing that part of my life. I like to go to flea markets and visit antique shops and I usually find something to take home with me. I'm fairly new at crocheting. I tried to learn to crochet in my twenties but I didn't have left handed instructions. I could do it right handed but it was hard for me to keep my stitches consistent. Then a few years ago a left handed friend of mine gave me a book with left handed crocheting instructions and I learned to crochet. My first quilt was in done in 2001. Money was tight and I wanted to give my husband something nice. So I decided to make him a "blanket". Little did I know I would be hooked and still be making quilts years later. I'm starting my hand at scrapbooking and watercoloring. We will see how that goes. :) I update my AVON page each week with a special deal, so be sure to check it out. Well, that's a little about me. Hope you enjoy my blog and follow me on this journey.

  1. Today was gorgeous here, too. The sun was warm, but the snow is still around:) Nice of you to share from your book collection. I'm sure Sandra will be happy to refer to it.


  2. Thanks Linda! Yes, if she gets hooked on quilting I'm sure she will pass on too. 🙂

    I too look forward to the results of the poll.

    Have a great rest of the week! 🙂


  3. So nice of you to give her the book!! She will always remember that and maybe some day pass it on as well. 🙂 I voted in your poll and am excited to see what the results will be.
