What a pleasant way to end the year…


This morning, a beautiful amaryllis bloom welcomed me as I walked into the kitchen.   I received it about 2 weeks ago from a friend.  

In the past three days, I have watched it go from one bud, to three, then having one open over night, with another beginning to open today.  I think it will be fully open in the morning.  The third bloom will probably be open by the end of the week.

This is a view of it with the sun shining on it, and the background in shadow.

What a pleasant way to end the year, with pretty new blooms.

On the way home this evening, I took this picture.  There is only one jet in this picture, but at the time I was taking it, there were eight jets in the air.

Here’s the pot holder I started yesterday.



Another year of Schnibbles
Check out Another Year of Schnibbles.
It is a challenge, to make a small quilt each month.
I think it sounds like fun.  🙂
Here’s wishing you a terrific Thursday!
God bless and keep you,

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.
