A Beautiful Day...

This is the day the Lord hath made!

It was a beautiful fall day!
and I had the privilege of spending
it with some beautiful women,
who were sewing some beautiful quilts!
I wish I had pictures of their quilt blocks
but the would require that I remember to
take the camera out of my purse.


I do, however have a little peak
of a few of my blocks.
(all made from the same fabric)

We had such a great day!

How was your day?

Friday Night Date

The cute engineer came home Friday evening
with BIG plans for the evening.

don't get to excited
like I did.

His plans were...
to rake the back yard.

I knew the backyard
needed a good rake'n
especially since the city is
planning on a pick up day this week,


I thought we would take care of that task
on Saturday.

My plans were foiled by
There was rain on the way!
and with rain in the picture
the cute engineer was on a mission.

Sooooo, we gathered the necessary tools...

and we could not forget
(even if we wanted to)
Libby, our gardening buddy.

Out we went...
Libby was such a big help!
all she wanted to do was play ball!

We raked and raked
and took trip after trip
hauling leaves to the front.
I am happy to say...


Now, we can plant some more bulbs.
Hope you are having a great day today!

Oh My...

I can't believe it has been
a whole week since I was last on this
ole blog of mine.

Jen came home!

She was home a very short two days,
and we made the very best of those two days.
We shopped, we laughed, we ate her favorites,
we watched a few movies , visited the salon,
had a girls night out,
there was even a few sister spats.

Oh, the joy!

This mommas heart was overflowing
to say the least


she left just as quickly as she arrived.

What makes her leaving bearable is
that she absolutely
could not wait to get back.

Thank you

Shortly after she left
I was headed up north.
The cute engineer was just so sweet
and planned a few days
rest and relaxation.


I have to tell you...
He is so good to me.

We are back now
rested and relaxed.

Thank you, cute engineer

So... what have y'all
been up too?

Enjoyed Blessings!

This past week I was really, really, really busy...
Enjoying some very sweet blessings!!!
and...being the good blogger I am I only have one picture to show.
I enjoyed spending some sweet time with the cute engineer.
Katie and I went to a barn sale.
I spent some time in the garden
and at my favorite garden center.
I was able to sew a bit

I finished the Underground Railroad quilt.
and signed up for another quilt class.

While all of this was amazing
and I am very thankful for these sweet blessings.

The sweetest blessing of all
was a lovely cup of coffee and
some uninterrupted time in His Word!

Enjoy! Your Blessings Today

Couch Potato

This week end I was nothing but
I curled up in my
favorite blanket
on my favorite couch
with a book and remote in hand.
(Ok, and maybe my sewing machine was used a tad)
I hardly moved for the whole week end.

I was a tad bit under the weather
and now that I am feeling better.

Watch out!
my favorite garden center



It's time to plant some bulbs!

Have a terrific day!
