The Avacado Experience

I love a messy face.
I'm not sure why...but when I was rearing my little ones nothing beat a messy face picture.
So here is my sweet grand baby enjoying her first meal...a delicious avocado.
Have a blessed Sunday and enjoy something new!

I'm baaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaack! :)

I think that's more of a warning that a declaration!

Life spun a little out of control... mostly good stuff..(actually great stuff)

For several months my work had been really, really, really, slow.

While I missed my paycheck I have to say I really enjoyed delving back into all my fun hobbies that I hadn't participated in for years. But just as my daughter was graduating..
things went crazy!

That's the way the real estate business goes...go on a vacation..people want a house now. Thinking about seeing a movie???----trust me-in the middle of the milk duds commercial---someone needs to sell their house. Don't get me wrong....I LOVE what i do..but sometimes the timing ....sheesch! But, ...I consider my business a HUGE blessing. I love working with people...and there is one more kid to get thru college!

p.s. You should see my Weichert sign dance!!! The things I do to sell houses :)

Well...i have been sewing a little. Making purses for graduation presents. I still have a few more to go...purse pattern reviews coming your way soon....

Hope your Summer is going fabulously! What big plans do you have for your summer??? Relaxing...eating bon bons...manicures and pedicures for you???

My name is Pride

My name is Pride.
I am a cheater.
I cheat you of your God-given destiny...because you demand your own way.
I cheat you of contentment...because you "deserve better than this."
I cheat you of knowledge...because you already know it all.
I cheat you of healing...because you're too full of me to forgive.
I cheat you of holiness...because you refuse to admit when you're wrong.
I cheat you of vision...because you'd rather look in the mirror than out a window.
I cheat you of genuine friendship...because nobody's going to know the real you.
I cheat you of love...because real romance demands sacrifice.
I cheat you of greatness in heaven...because you refuse to wash another's feet on earth.
I cheat you of God's glory...because I convince you to seek your own.
My name is Pride.
I am a cheater.
You like me becauseyou think I'm always looking out for you.Untrue.I'm looking out to make a fool of you.
God has so much for you, I admit, but don't worry...If you stick with me,You'll never know.

Chile--tell me what you know!

My daughter, Holly, is traveling to South American in a little over a week. A long dreamed for vacation...but through goofy,(but great), circumstances she is having to plan on very short notice. Holly & Paul (her wonderful husband), are preparing and packing like crazy people.

She asked me...to ask you....what do you recommend for Chile??...while we are at it- Argentina too (she has been there before and loves it) They are both skiers and they love to travel. So if you have any ideas for them...please let me know.

Thanks friends!!!!

Sewing Seeds

Sow the good seeds of righteousness, and you will harvest a crop of my love. Plow up the hard ground of your hearts, for now is the time to seek the Lord, that he may come and shower righteousness upon you."---Hosea 10:12

Over at I HAVE TO SAY she is collecting skirts for a friend from their church to take on a mission trip. A member from their church is going to Costa Rica . Her daughter went last year and members of the blogesphere offered to send skirts and she ended up with 118!!!! WOW ...thus was born Sewing Seeds.
What a lovely gesture...it just makes me smile to think of those little girls with the bright colored new clothing! What a blessing.

For more details check out her blog on May 20th. Sewing not your thing...she is also collected shorts for the little boys!

All of my daughters have been over seas on missions ...and one thingI know --God not only used them while they were there...he changed them! He is so amazing.

Have a wonderful Friday and a fabulous weekend.
I'm hoping to reintroduce myself to my sewing machine. She is in a bit of a snit...feels like she have been ignored..poor baby :)

Midsummer Nights Dream Tutu Tutorial!!!!

Midsummer Nights Dream Tutu Tutorial!!!!

I've been in a little HOT water!

So sorry about my scant blogging. Life the last month has been wonderful, crazy, busy, exhausting....oh you get the picture...i've kind of felt like Emerson in the above picture. I've been entertaining every weekend...which I love but a little exhasting. WHew...finished.

I'm hoping to spend some sewing time this week...many projects to do!!! So i'll let you see as the week goes by.

My camera also decided it has had enough..so i need to go find a new one of those too. Have any recommendations for any easy to use camera????
