Daze Zapper

Hello!  🙂

As I sit here with my hot bowl of ramen noodles and reflecting over my day, a chuckle escapes.   There is a song that keeps playing over in my head from time to time.

Earlier today, as I was archiving training records from one database to another…. such a mundane part of my job…a song comes over the radio…

It amazes me how God created our minds.

We are in the middle of a mundane or boring task… dazed and continuing to work with eyes wide open… then a song or an action comes along and snaps us right out of the daze.  Our minds are so wonderfully created, we recall entire situations from colors, smells, and feelings; as if it just happened. 

Well, my ‘daze zapper’ was the song “I Believe in Miracles” by Hot Chocolate.  Not that I remember the words… only a few…  But I do remember the tune and the cute video I saw with this song.  It broke the monotony.

This evening I went to the Logan County PieceMakers Quilt Guild meeting.   
I sure wish I had remembered my camera…  
There were several beautiful quilts and one was totally hand pieced and quilted.  Yes I was impressed. 🙂  There were also some pretty autumn quilted place mats and a pretty red quilted tote bag and I showed my pumpkins and autumn wall hanging.  
One of the things our guild does, is each member turns in a fat quarter each month.  The people who have birthdays in the current month, get to pick out two fat quarters.  This was my month to do so.  I took a pic after I got home.  I think they are very pretty. 🙂
One of the goals we need to still fulfill this year, is lap quilts for the local nursing home.  Lap quilts are sized 1 yard by width of fabric, so that they don’t get caught in the wheels on the wheelchairs.   I hope we get several turned in, in the next two months.  I am going to put something in our newsletter to encourage everyone to make one.    Keep your fingers crossed for me.  🙂
The 2012 Butterfly quilt was shown this evening too.
It is pretty!!   
I’ll post a pic as soon as I get one.
What do you order when you eat Chinese food?
I’ll leave you with this…
Take time to laugh, 
It is the music of the soul.
 Have a wonderful Wednesday!
God bless and keep you,
My answer the yesterday’s question:  Trying to be a good mom to my kids.

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.
