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.
