Change in the weather

We have rain today. Welcome lovely, forest fire retardant, rain. I saw blue sky yesterday between moisture systems. I don't remember the last time our sky was that blue since summer began. We have had fires to the west and to the northwest. A horrible summer with 1,000,000+ acres in Montana burned. The smoke has to go somewhere.

Hurricanes, earthquakes, fire--it makes me wonder what comes next on our planet.

Sept. 18 - Combining two passions

Morning, I pray you have all had a Spirit Led week.  I know I did.

Today my husband has a follow up appt, with his general practitioner.  He gets to explain why he REFUSED to have a test done.  I sort of agree, but early detection is the key to all possible cancers.  I knew i could not talk him into it.  I have been married to him for 40 yrs.  I know when I can push and when to let it go.

Thursday, the twin (Ryan) and his wife who are expecting had a check up.…

Sept. 12 - Late getting the weeks started

That is what happens when you are retired sometimes.  LOL

First, I hope all had a Spirit Led week last week.  I know it was a hard one.  

The recovery from Hurricane Harvey is underway, slowly in some areas, but at least it is moving along.  Darren's father in law, who stayed in the Houston area during Harvey, seems to be doing fine.    Irma is another story.  That is going to be a mess from the get go.  I am praying for all involved.  From the victims, to the…

Sept 4 - Oh my, September already!

Prayers are fulfilled...Spirit Led week

Prayers for my husband are requested.  He has a follow up visit with the urologist this week.  My husband says that he is doing better and better each day. He does not want any invasive 'probing' done, which may happen this week.  We will see.  One day at a time, sweet Jesus...

A follow up on our oldest grandson.  He passed his driving test!  He is legal to get out on the road in a vehicle!  Look out world.…

High Fiber— Dolls on the Runway

You may remember that someone from Therapy Animals of Utah saw the clothes for the Habitat dolls on Facebook and asked me to dress a doll for their silent auction, too.

Zoey came to live with me until I finish…

Cute poem to share

I pray someday at heaven’s gate I may in glory stand,

A crown perhaps upon my head, but a needle in my hand.

I never learned to sing or play so let no harp be mine;

From childhood to my dying day, fine sewing’s been my line.

Therefore accustomed all my life to making useful stitches

I’ll be content if asked to mend the little angels’ britches. 

Author unknown.

Remember Me????

Good morning ladies-

I finally am home to get some computer work done. Haven't been posting much, just one of those summers you'd like to forget. Hated to answer the phone...we lost several members of our family and a close friend to a freaking accident. We seem to be getting our heads above water now, so looking forward to a quiet Fall. I have been collecting fabric for a couple of lap quilts for Christmas gifts. We are heading out to Branson the end of Sept. Plan on spending two…

August 28 - Interesting week

I hope you had a Spirit Led week, I know I did.

Monday was interesting.  We had the solar eclipse to start the week.  To end the week, there was a horribly destructive  hurricane in the Gulf of Mexico.  And in between, I was an instructor.  

But first, and update on my husband.  The medication is working.  He is able to sleep better and with less interruptions to go to the restroom.  

We did not really get into the eclipse.  We have both witnessed…

Stay safe!

I want to send well wishes to everyone who is living in the path of the hurricane or the subsequent tornadoes, flooding, etc. that will be occurring over the next few days. Please be safe and let us know you are okay.

August 21 - Another eventful week

Welcome to another Spirit Led week.  I hope last week went well for all.  If not, hopefully the Spirit was with you.

Last week my husband asked me to make him a doctor appointment.  He has been having trouble with his prostate for almost 2 years and would not let me get him to the doctor.  So I called our doctor that we have used for 20 + years.  They would not take him!  Since we have not been to him in over 3 years, my husband would be considered as a 'new' patient.  The…

August? Really? What happened to April ?

Wow! I have been staring at my calendar this morning--August? Really? and the 16th? Well, I am behind the times, in a big way.

What have I been doing? gardening, driving back and forth to Minnesota and South Dakota. Quilt Wyoming in Gillette, Wyoming. Green Bay, WI. I feel like all I have been focused on is getting the laundry done and the lawn mowed before packing again and heading off.

Of course, along the way, I have managed to acquire more UFO's. Unbound and rebound a…

August 14 - Time for a reset

I hope you had a wonderful Spirit Led week.

Due to unforeseen events, I was not able to get to the studio to clean up.

One event was daily picking up grandson from morning band practice and returning him in the evening for another round.  That would not have been bad, but in between, I was doing research on auto and home insurance companies.  It seems that my current one seems to 'lose' the payments sent in.  I sent my vehicle insurance in via bank pay and they…
