Started Another One

I have started another pink baby blanket. I have 8 inches done. That is pretty good for me. This is a picture of our granddaughter, Miss Makenzie. She is holding our 2 babies.I thought i would share my Easter/Spring display on my grandmother's treadle sewing machine cabinet. The scarf was made by her many years ago. You can't see the tiny stitches on the egg I cross stitched. The little Easter pillow and Easter card was stitched by my friend Becky. It is cool and cloudy and I finished doing our taxes today! Well I will be honest I just collected all of the receipts and added them together to take to our tax lady. Go Cowpokes, let's hear "Pistols Firing" tomorrow during the game. Until next time, enjoy each day to its fullest and share the love of God with others.

Finished At Last

I want to wish all of you a Happy St. Patty's Day. My husband and I went to the cafeteria and had our annual Corned Beef and Cabbage. It was very good. But it will last me for another year.

I finished my baby blanket that I have been working on forever. Now I have started on another one for one of my coworkers at school. We are headed to Texas tomorrow so the needles will fly while I listen to my book on tape.

My friend and I met at our local ice cream shop and had fresh coffee and a dip of that good cool stuff. It was 84 today so that is the right weather for ice cream.

We took the babies to the groomer today and they are going to spend a couple of nights with their Grandma Lynn. They love her and she loves them. It gives me comfort to know they are well taken care of and they get to run around instead of being in a crate all day and night.
May the winds be at your back and the sunshine on your face. Blessings.

Greetings and Salutations to all: As you can see I have not added anything since November. I am a music teacher and from November through Christmas I have no time except to teach and hope all works out well.

I have been knitting a wee baby blanket for a friend but that is all. I have taken a few stitches but none to show.

I commute 2 hours each day, I drive to Oklahoma Baptist University on Monday after school which is an hour and a half commute. I teach piano on Tuesday after school. I visit with my friend Susan, from the 4th grade on Wednesdays and get my hair done. I go to Weight Watchers on Thursday, and on Fridays, I die. My weekends are full.

So it is with great anticipation that I am looking forward to Spring Break.

I am walking at least 30 minutes each day and by the end of the day there is not much left. I am trying my best to go to bed by 8:30 because I get up at 4:45.

I gave up diet coke for Lent and I should have added I will stitch 15 minutes each day. It isn't too late I will try that.

Our Bradford pear trees, wild plums, etc. have burst into bloom and the red birds sing gratefully every morning as I prepare to go to work. I pray that everyone has a wonderful week filled with happiness and joy.
