I was a cool day…

Surprise!!    When I arrived home after work, I saw three small cantaloupes on the counter.   They came from David’s garden!  I thought he had only the one cantaloupe, we ate last week.  

Tonight was a quilt guild meeting night.  We had a good program, designing a quilt top by using paint chip samples for rooms, like you find at Lowe.s, for example.   The sample room I helped design for, was a rustic looking room.   Lanora (my partner in this crime) and I decided a landscape quilt would look good in the room.  So using the paint chip samples, we came up with a design of a sunset in the mountains, with a large gnarly tree in the foreground.  
On the way home I was inspired to try to make the landscape quilt in small scale, just to see how it turns out. 
I need to finish my big quilt first though… so I will have to wait a week or two.  🙂   I’ll post pics when I have them.  🙂
Today, was a cool day.  It was wonderful!  
It felt like Autumn for sure.  🙂
Here’s a little poem I wrote about Autumn, in 2002.

A Night in Autumn
The night is cool,
Dark sky, clear.
Stars shining,
Moon so near,
Breath white in the air,
A peaceful time.
Listen to the night sounds.
Crickets play their melody,
Serenading the earth to sleep.

What decade during the last century would you have chosen to be a teenager?
Have a wonderful Wednesday!!
God bless and keep you,
My answer to yesterday’s question: I hope retired, enjoying my time.  🙂

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.
