Where does the time go?

It seems my weeks are beginning to run together and before I know it another new week is starting.  I look at my  organizer and realized I didn’t accomplish all the things I set out to do for the week.

I get behind on my blog among other things.  So I will try to catch up on what’s been going on mostly through pictures.

I will start with a visit with family.  I got to spend a little time with some of my aunts and  uncles today, who I haven’s seen in a while.   It is always a blessing to me to see their smiles and hear their stories.  Family, no matter how far away they are, means a lot to me.  I feel their happiness, their sadness, their strengths and their weaknesses.  I cheer when they have a celebration, I cry when they have a heartbreak, I worry about them when things are not going good for them.  But most of all I pray for them.  I ask for blessings to be given to them, I pray for any healing that needs to be done, and I pray for strength in their times of weakness, asking the Lord to delivering them.  I love my family.

Next I will share some visitors to our veggie garden this past week.  They have moved on, it didn’t take long for them to get their hop going.

I’ve done a little more water coloring.

I’ve also been working on some quilt blocks.  I tried this card trick block and I have to say I do not like this block.  I had fits getting my mind wrapped around it.  I had scraps left over and made a small pin wheel block.  Then I took a vintage quilt top, that was given to me a few years back, and made a table topper to use in my bedroom.

Then of course I did a little flea marketing too.  I didn’t find a whole lot but did find a few cute items I have now in my sewing room.  A mouse piggy bank for thread money.  A small silver bell with a cute little mouse on top and a beat up trash can mug for my paint brushes.

I guess that catches me up for now.  I am going to strive to get back on track next week and hope to accomplish everything I set out to do.

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.
