Constant Motion

Hellooooooo out there!

It's been a while...

How are things going?

Things here at the cottage
seem to be in motion all the time...
The garden is coming along nicely.
especially the dandelions!
Still, lots of things to plant.
Libby (my gardening buddy) has renewed
her passion for digging up the yard.
I have three different quilts in the works.
The cute engineer and I are enjoying some
very sweet time with our girls.

Today, it's going to be cool and rainy
a perfect day to step away from the
constant motion to enjoy
a cuppa and a good book!

Take care and have lovely day!

Sweet Blessings

Do you ever find yourself
with a heart so full
that it is hard to sort out your feelings?
That's how I am feeling this evening.
I am overwhelmed in a good way
with blessings that have flowed so sweetly my way.

Do you ever feel like you need to post
just for the sake of posting?
That's how I am feeling this evening.
I would love to share with you all the
blessings that have sweetly touched me
but like I said I am a little overwhelmed
in a good way and I can't seem to sort things out.

The cute engineer is roasting coffee
and I think I will sit down with
a cuppa and enjoy the overwhelming
blessings that my Heavenly Father
has sent my way!

Father God,
Thank You for filling my
heart to overflow.
I am forever grateful
for the memories that have been
made this past week.

and just because a post needs a photo.....
While Julie (the very important quest)
was here, we went to Greenfield Village.
Both of us made a little glass flower.
An experience I will never forget.

Like I said.....sweet blessings!

Enjoy your evening!

The Sweet Buzz of Excitement

Oh my goodness!!!!!
I am soooooooo
Today is the day.....
that THE VIG
(very important guest)
arrives at the cottage.
I can hardly contain the excitement!
I could hardly sleep last night!
I feel like a kid waiting for Christmas morning to come!
 Sometimes a squeal just escapes from no where!
12:36 can't get here fast enough!

Julie, (THE VIG) and I have been friends
for over thirty years!
Time has brought us through
the thick and thin of life.
She is one of God's sweetest blessings!
I simply can not wait to.....
make some new memories.

Let the fun begin!!!!!

Lovely Surprises

Yesterday was such a GRAND day!
full of lovely surprises.....
The cute engineer ticked off a few boxes
on the never ending honey do list.
Words can not express just
how giddy that made me!
He's a keeper!!!

My sweet girl....
had to work all week end
(she works the twelve hour night shift)
So, I really wasn't expecting to see her
She showed up with the

and a new rhododendron.

My other sweet girl was not suppose to get
home until today.....
I heard a door open and in
walked that sweet girl
with her beautiful smile
all her stuff

Simply put.....
It was the best mothers day I've ever had!!!!!

I hope all of you had a lovely day

As we celebrated this day
I thought of so many of you!
Mothers day can be a hard day for many.
Each circumstance is different
and I want you to know that I thought
about you all and prayed for you.

Enjoy your day
