Tuesday Ramblin'...

Last time I posted, I think I was going to work in the sewing room all day and do laundry.   Haha...well...I went for my walk and when I got back, it was SO beautiful out and I looked at the flower beds....and that's all it took.  That walk led to 2-1/2 hours of weeding and sweeping and planning.  Sometimes our days just don't go according to plan....BUT, at least I did have a productive day and I did end up inside doing something later...just didn't get as much done inside.  The garden spot has been tilled.  I've made a list of spaces that need filled and a list of what we want to plant in the garden, so when I finally make it to the nurseries I will know what I'm after and not be overwhelmed with all the flowers and plants that I forget what I'm actually going for!  I was hoping to do that last Friday but the weather wasn't too cooperative so it's been put on hold.  I want one more till on the garden and with all the rain, it looks like I'll need to weed again before setting out any plants!  UGH!  (I did cave Saturday and bought 3 lavendar plants)

Had a family gathering on Saturday.  My cousin and her three youngin's were in from Kentucky.  We've all sent her our favorite recipes and she's putting together a family cookbook.  It will be in memory of our Grandma & Grandpa Prewitt, our Uncle Roscoe, who we lost to a car accident 11 years ago and her Mom, my Aunt Marilyn, who we lost just one year ago to heart attack.  She's coming right along in the planning and it should be ready by late July! Besides covering her expenses, the proceeds will go towards the upkeep of the old country church cemetary where our family is buried. 
We took this gathering time to take pictures....

Larry, Randy,Rhonda, Bill, Audrey, Dennis & Diana (my mom & dad) David, D-anna, Frank and Norma.

What a bunch!  Never a dull or quiet moment!
Well I best get on with my day if I'm going to get anything done! 
I hope there is sunshine in your world today....Have a GREAT day!!

Good Morning....

I  hope everyone is enjoying spring...now that it is finally here to stay! There is much to do here....been cleaning out flower boxes and need to move a few things and decide where I'm going to put the pussywillows I brought home from Illinois!  I just set them in some water to let them take root, the little fuzzies are falling off and they are leafing out nicely!  Now to find a spot for them!  The small garden spot still needs to be tilled....hope to have that done in the next day or two!

My great niece, Ava, had her 1st birthday party this past Saturday evening...SO sweet!  I can't believe how fast this past year has gone by....Isn't she a doll!!! Look at that cupcake!!!!

Now look at it!!! LOL She kept digging in there....like there was  hidden treasure inside!

This is my nephew, Andrew....he participated in Special Olympics in Kirksville on Saturday...he brought home 3 medals....hope I get this right....running, long jump and shotput!

Between sewing and cleaning, I'm not getting much of the fun work done!  I did manage to sneak in some cross stitch time over these past few evenings. Seems like I've been working on this sampler forever...it's slowly but surely getting done...maybe I'll challenge myself to finish it up this week so I can get it hung on my sampler wall and move on to another project! 
Sew much to do....sew little thyme!
Working at home today....while the washing machine does it thang, I will be sitting at the sewing machine!  But I think I might just sneak in a little walk...something I really need to start doing everyday!!! I finally took a walk thru the woods the other evening....oh check out this tree...always found it fascinating the way it grew....
That's a sheet of tin hanging on the back there...where the kids tried putting some sort of stand on it back in the day and that's all that's left!
I love a walk thru the woods....always so peaceful and no matter how busy I am, I don't ever rush a walk thru the woods.
Well, on with my day if I'm going to get anything done! 
Hope you all have an awesome day...take a walk and enjoy the sounds and wonders of nature!
