Blah and Smiles

Hello, it has been quite a time since my last blog… or it seems so.

It’s not because I have been crazy busy…
It’s not because I have been stressed out…
It’s not because I’ve been having too much fun…
I don’t know why…
Just haven’t been inspired to write.  
Ever been there?
Yesterday, my daughter had a band concert.  I didn’t get to go.    
I had a headache that was probably one of the worst I have had.  It started during Sunday school and got worse.   It was one of those headaches that when I sang the hymns, it hurt above my eyes.  As the morning went, light began to bother me and noises just a little elevated aggravated my headache.   When I got home I took two extra strength acetaminophen and a sinus pill, then went to bed and covered my head so that light wouldn’t get in.   4 hours later, I got out of bed and the headache had pretty much left me or was a tolerable level.   
But,  I missed my daughter’s concert.    
Of all days for a major headache to kick in!

She brought home a trophy for Outstanding Percussionist of the Year.   AWESOME!!  
I wanted to get a pic of her and the trophy, but she did not cooperate, thus I have a pic of her hand and trophy only.
I think it was Saturday… 
David brought in the first radish’s from his garden this year…
and the cactus seed he planted, are coming up too.
Aren’t the little cacti cute?

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.
