Oops, this is the photo that didn't make it to the blog for some reason. Cut out 2 skirts today, went to Weight Watcher's (why??) then to church to decorate, didn't have camera with so don't have photos yet.....then out to the Ben Franklin's in Iowa City with a girl-friend and then dinner rather late, at a Mexican much for any weight loss!
I made this really neat skirt, cut on the bias, from a Great Copy pattern. Just have to put together a little jacket from the pattern. I will get photos up soon. Funny how I forget about that important part of my life. Hubby is at a men's retreat through tomorrow afternoon. I am taking a class at a new stamp/scrapbook place in town tomorrow afternoon and I will do photos of my creation....

Good morning. I never know quite where these words will show up! Now I know just why some dear friends have given up their blog. Maybe they don't have Picasa. Our verse for today is: Job 6:8 Oh that I might have my request; and that God would grant me the thing that I long for! Jo's grief was great and he longed for relief from his woes and the answers to his questions. But God was good to him. ALthough, some would say that Job's wife was Satan's doing as he didn't have her "done in".
Had a quiet weekend. Entertained the College and Careeres from our church with a cook out and fire in the firepit. Then breakfast on Saturday with my friend Angie and later mimi-golf and pizza with the Barnabas group from church. Those are the ones that don't fit the college and career group, or the young marrieds. In other words: the old people!
Photos today are of the grands when we were down there (Atlanta area) this summer. Everyone needs a pirate, don't you think? The St.Louis landmark was in view while waiting for the traffic jam to clear and then one of the gardens (NO, this is NOT mine! I wish!) that we visited on the garden walk this summer. Landon went to a birthday party and Lilly came with the grandparents to lunch and shop. She did so very well for a 3 year old. Entertained herself with watching us in a strange grocery store and singing "It's a Small World Afterall".
I didn't get to take a photo of the backyard today, all foggy and misty. Really nice. Reminds me of the land of my growing up: Upper Penisula of Michigan, along Lake Superior.
This is all for today.
As always from the bush, me.

Old photos

Good morning all. Sorry for the delay in writing. Hubby loaded the best photo program for blogging just for me, isn't he the sweetest? However, we are still without sound on the computer, so don't send me any YouTube stuff:)
TOday's photos are from last year. The top are the lovely and talented and smart grands at their other grandparents community pool. The middle is the MFA, looking very pensive, and her daddy. THe blanket on the couch is Landon's, I "made" it. ALl too easy, just cut the fleece along the selveges and cut 4"x1" strips along all 4 edges and tie together. I used a solid green on the back. Landon LOVES John Deer. My blue-eyed grand tells me his eyes are " green, Grandma. John Deer green" The bottom is last Christmas time at Stone Mountain. Yes, Jerry is a lot taller than me, by almost a foot! But I am smarter, so that counts more.
I am going to go to 4 sister's in a cottage today as Amy's shop is only open for a few more weeks. I hope to find a treasure there, I always do.
I hope I can get some newer photos up soon.
Verse for today: Psalm 111:1 Praise ye the Lord. I will praise the Lord with my whole heart, in the assembly of the upright, and in the congregation. If someone asks you why you go to church, here is your answer. PTL
