Long time no see.  Well I'm going to remedy that.  I have been working on crafts and I started back to the pool.  I also having to go to therpy for my back and neck.  But I'm still hanging in there. 

I'm selling my crafts on facebook now and I went back into the shop up in Williamsburg, Va.  I  just can't get away from doing these crafts, actually I love creating things.  You know something when you think about creating things, I think about God and how he felt when he was creating this great wonderful world of ours.  He must have been so delighted with Himself and He was  because it says so in the Bible.  When I look around at this wonderful creation, I'm so thankful for God for giving us such a wonderful place to live, I know some people do not have it as good as America, but sometimes we can find beauty in anything or anywhere.  I challenge you to look for the beauty in our creation but most of all in what God is doing in your life.  He can change anybody, and give you a new inward look at everything around you if you will just trust Him and believe in His son Jesus Christ.

Come on over and take a look at my crafts I'm selling on facebook, also, if there are any shop owners looking for a great place to wholesale handmade in America Crafts there is a wholesale group I belong to where there are the greatest crafters/  Just email me and I will give you the information.

Here wishing you a great and wonderful bless day.

Good Morning All

Good Morning, sure hope you had a great Monday, I did, I worked on my craft room.  My goal was too stay on my new eating plan and I did that, but I did not get on the stationary bike, but I did do fairly well on the eating plan. And I didn't sit in that chair all day.   So that was  good. 

So today, is Tuesday, what can I write about that would interest my readers.  Well, remember I told you that I just loved spring and the first flower that usually came out was a daffodil, well guess what on Sunday on  my way home from church, I saw a daffodil out and looking beautiful, but we had a forecast for snow on Sunday, I checked and its still peeking out. 

And then on Monday my doggie wanted to go out and I looked out on my deck and you will not believe I saw a beautiful red cardinal setting on my gas stove.  I hurried and got my camera, but he was gone but I couldn't get the picture, but it was another great sign for Spring.  Also I heard on the news that we were going to have high sixties this week, so its getting nearer and nearer.  Now the real rainy season comes in.  Oh well, at least I know it want be long.  Isn't it amazing that we can count on God for we know that in His timing everything will happen.  God is great.   Sure hope you have a great day.  God Bless

Monday Morning's Blessings

Hi there, well today is  Monday and I went to church yesterday, so that was one of my goals.  That was the beginning of a good week.  I look forward to see what this week will bring.  Now my next goal is to ride my bike for 5 minutes each day.  Please pray for me as I work towards my goals.  \

I just love the picture I have for today, because each day is a new day.  Its like a new start up for life each day that comes.  We can decide to do what we want.  God wants us to do for Him and gloryfy Him.  I know I fail to do this so many times, but just remember He gives us another chance tomorrow.  Try not to worry about tomorrow lets just take one step at a time today.   Remember we have a God who gives new chances everyday.  Sure hope you have a great day.

There is a chance of snow here, I sure hope they are wrong.  I'm so ready for Spring its unreal.  I can't wait to see the new green leaves popping our and the spring flowers.  So I sure hope they are wrong but if not maybe the next day will be sunny and bright with warmth.  I think we all get itchy for Spring right about now. 

Have you ever thought about the bears and how they hibranate in the winter then come out when the spring weather starts.  Well I think God lets us have these winters so that we can rest, and lets the land   rest for the spring planting so that we will be rejunated come Spring.  I still don't like the real cold weather because sometimes it seems forever, but I have thought about this many times.  I complain about this but I know God has His reason for the seasons and I just need to learn to enjoy the time with my family and my Savior. 

Well, have a blessed day.  Remember God loves you.

Good Saturday morning, I hope everyone has great plans for the weekend.  People who work I know look forward to the weekend and being with their love ones.  Me, I'm always looking for something to do or just sit again and stuff my face.   It use to be so nice when my kids where home for the weekend because we were all together, but now the two girls are living away and I only see them a couple times of the year.  So what do I do with myself, the same thing I did Monday through Friday, just sit and think and stuff my face.  So need to start planning for something new on weekends.  Its so hard to change yourself or making yourself even want to change.  What to look forward too.  I made up my mind that I'm going to start going to chuch on Sundays.  I have fallen on that and its not good.  So lets start with that one accomplishment this week and ride my stationary bike for 5 minutes each day.  Will let you know how I progress.  My daughter who is a nurse says that is how you need to get started, ist to focus on one thing or 2 small things and try to accomplish that for the week.  So that's my goal.   Have a great day.  Remember God loves you.

Starting Weigh-In-Friday

Well, its me again.  I just wanted to let you know that I've started back trying to loose some weight.  I have gained some of what I lost back. So, its like starting all over again.  So please come and join me on another journey of trying  to loose weight again.  Its very depressing, I feel horrible, don't won't to move and my back is hurting and my neck is bothering me again.  I haven't exercised or anything in months.  Its a chore to even walk, so I really need to get back on track.  I have to admit I felt so much better when I was water walking and cutting those calories.  So lets hope I get farther than I did before.  Please come and join me.

Hi from Gate Street

Well, its Friday and another week has gone by and guess what! spring is just around the corner.  We have had a fairly nice winter, just lots of rain, which I hate, but I know its something we need, for when Summer comes we go for weeks without it.  But its still very depressing sometimes.  We did have a few snow furries which was just enough to make me want more so I could make snowcream, but not this time. 

I have been working on trying to get my old paint room ready so I can start sewing again.  Its going to be a few more days before we get it done.  I will show some before pictures and after.  I have painted on wood for the last 20 years and not really sewn very much.  I use to make ruffle curtains, potty sets, pillows, you name it and I put a ruffle on it.  Then I started painting and I haven't sewn very much in the a long time.  But I'm going to try to get back into it.  It seems like people really likes dolls, pillows and sewing items now more than painting unless its really detailed.  So we will see how it comes about and even if I really want to do that again.  At least my room will be cleaned and fixed a little. 

Well, I sure hope everyone had a great Valentine's Day and told that certain someone how much you love and appreciate them.  Just remember March is next and that means Spring is just around the corner, we will start seeing those daffodils soon.  I just love that flower.  Its so bright and cheerful.  Well here's hoping you have a Blessed Day.  God Bless

Good Morning, Here's a little Chuckle For You

As our Heavenly Father said there will be;

A time to weep, and a time to laugh; a
time to mourn, and a time to dance.
( Ecclesiastes 3:4 *NKJV )

Dear  Friend,
Well you are in luck for today is a time to laugh! So sit back and
enjoy the following message from one of our Sister's In Christ. Soon
you will be saying; Our mouths were filled with laughter,
our tongues with songs of joy. And just as Sarah,
Abraham's wife, said when God told her she would have a child at
her advanced age. You will be saying; God has made me
laugh, and all who hear will laugh with me.
( Psalm 126:2 ) & ( Genesis 21:6 )


Pecans in the Cemetery

On the outskirts of a small town, there was a big, old pecan tree
just inside the cemetery fence. One day, two boys filled up a
bucketful of nuts and sat down by the tree, out of sight, and began
dividing the nuts. "One for you, one for me. One for you, one for
me," said one boy. Several dropped and rolled down toward the

Another boy came riding along the road on his bicycle. As he
passed, he thought he heard voices from inside the cemetery. He
slowed down to investigate. Sure enough, he heard, "One for you,
one for me. One for you, one for me." He just knew what it was,
so he jumped back on his bike and rode off.

Now just around the bend he met an old man with a cane,
hobbling along. "Come here quick," said the boy, "you won't believe
what I heard! Satan and the Lord are down at the cemetery dividing
up the souls."

The man said, "Beat it kid, can't you see it's hard for me to
walk." When the boy insisted though, the man hobbled to the
cemetery. Standing by the fence they heard, "One for you, one for
me. One for you, one for me..." The old man whispered, "Boy,
you've been tellin' the truth. Let's see if we can see the Lord."
Shaking with fear, they peered through the fence yet were still
unable to see anything.

The old man and the boy gripped the wrought iron bars of the
fence tighter and tighter as they tried to get a glimpse of the Lord.
At last they heard, "One for you, one for me. That's all. Now let's
go get those nuts by the fence and we'll be done."

They say the old man made it back to town a full 5 minutes
ahead of the boy on the bike!

Sure hope you had a chuckle, God wants us to enjoy ourselves and laugh.  Have a  blessed day.  Take care.

Wanted to Share What I Enjoyed Today.

Well, I 'm just wanted to share with my fellow blogger friends what I've had   a treat today.  Don't know whether you like oysters or not but I do.  We haven't had them in a long time.  Many years ago, we used to have a fire pit with a grill over it and we would put the oysters  on there and steam them.  We had not done that in many years, needless to say the fire pit is gone because we build a shed where it was. 

So we had talked to a friend to try to get some oysters when my daughter was here in December but never could get them, but guess what we got them today.  And we had a feast just me, Walter and Choie.  This time we just used our grill and put them on  there, made a cocktail sauce and just sit on the deck and had oysters, and crackers.  Hubby finished opening them after they were steamed a little.  They were some kind of good.  Here are a few pictures of our enjoyment.  Hope everyone is having a great day, it has beautiful here for the couple days.  I just love this weather.  Makes me excited for spring to get here, but the old ground hog saw his shadow so they say 6 more weeks of winter.  Let's hope there wrong.  God bless and enjoy the pictures.

Good morning to everyone here in blog land, I have been sick with a cold for over a week now.  So I'm finally feeling better and wanted to post and say Hi to all.  Sure hope everyone is staying well better than I did.  I haven't had a cold like this in years.  So my pray is that none of you great people get it. 

I have been trying to get back into making dolls and would you believe the first one I try is a round head doll and guess what mine isn't round at all, looks like a pumpkin head.  I'm so comfused about make this thing, I don't know what to do.  If anyone has any suggestions please send them to me.  I would appreciate it.  I won't to make a round head bunny.  So I will keep trying also will show a picture here if I every get it done. 

It has been cold and rainy here for 3 or 4 days.  Its really deary and depressing.  I want sunshine please.  I need the bright sun to shine down on me.  I'm sure that's the way alot of people feel especially in the northwest.  Well I sure hope everyone has a great day and remember February is just around the corner, so time is a passing even when we're not having fun or working our heart away.  Take care and God Bless.

I saw this on facebook and had to share this with everyone.

I thought this was exactly what we all need to be doing praying for our country and where its heading if we do not change things in Washington D.C.  Then we will have no one to blame but ourselves for where we go from here.  God is the answer for all our problems, we just need to admit our failures and turn to Him.

Good Morning to everyone in blog land, I sure hope everyone has had a great beginning of a new year.  You know so many people make resolution for the new year and usually they don't last the first month.  If you really want to change your life, trust in the Lord and ask Him to help change your ways from the inside out.  When we work on changing our heart first towards our Lord and Savior and ask Him to search our heart for things that are hurting us. He reveals what things that need to be changed.  You see we are going to our creator who created us, and has a special plan for us.   He has a plan for each one of us because He knew us when we were in our mothers womb.  So search for Him and He will find you and bring you to where He wants you to be and the person He wants you to be.  Trust in the Lord with all your Heart and He will direct your paths.  God Bless and Have a great day.
