Not sure…

The classic movie “Birds” by Alfred Hitchcock was on earlier today.  I had never seen it so I watched it.  While the movie was playing a lot of black birds showed up outside…

Not sure how I feel about birds now…

David took a few pictures of a visitor in our flower bed.  A poor little grasshopper became this webmaster’s meal.

I’m still trying to get my head wrapped around the fact that we are now in September.  It was nice outside today and the feeling of Autumn came over me and a tiny bit of anticipation set in.   Christmas will be here before I know it and I haven’t started on any projects for Christmas.   I need to start now so that I don’t  stress over getting everything done on time.   We have only 112 days until Christmas!

Speaking of Christmas, while at a flea market earlier in the week I found this unopened pack of scrapbook paper for $5.00.  This is a steal, as everything in the craft stores is $15.00 and higher for the same size pack.  This pack will most likely be turned into Christmas cards this year.  That’s what came to mind when I saw it.


How do you feel about birds?

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.
