Most people called their moms for Mother’s Day. My mom lives with me, so after church, we gave her the card and tool set we bought her. Then I proceeded to tear apart my dining room. Turned the table and laid out all the china! What I want to know is how in the world [...]
Today is a Day for Rejoicing the Lord!
I am so fortunate to attend the church that we do. It is a small church, but its people are rich in love for the Lord, and they serve Him with so much joy! We had some years in the past where we struggled, and I learned then that most churches only have about a [...]
Short and Sweet
It’s time for a temperature blanket update, but I’m a few days behind. Luna is helping me get caught up! Enjoying the weather while we can!
Saturday Garden Update – May 1, 2021
It’s May Day! I have memories of celebrating May Day as a kid, winding ribbons around a May pole, but I honestly don’t remember why. Relics of an era past, something my elementary school teachers wanted us to learn but wasn’t important in our current era, so I’ve pushed the information out of my brain. [...]
I Won’t Be Able to Move Tomorrow
In case you wanted to know what 100 bags of mulch looks like, it looks like this: We had it delivered. Last year I had five cubic yards of mulch dropped in my driveway, but that involved a lot of shoveling and wheelbarrow maneuvering. This year I opted for bags, even though it was more [...]
Front Yard Growth
I just realized I haven’t written any gardening posts for a month, and so much has changed already! Now that the temperatures have stabilized (mostly... where did this cold front come from??), we know what has survived and what didn’t. We pulled some things out, and added a lot of new things, and moved some [...]
Take and Eat, Part Two
I finally took a deep breath and started painting “Take and Eat.” Then I remembered I wanted to also do the cup verses, and it really would be better if I did them at the same time so the skin tones matched. It would also give each side a chance to dry while I worked [...]
It’s Planting Time!
The nights are still a little cool, but the days have been so warm. My bluebonnets are just thriving! Bluebonnets! The rest of the front garden is slowly coming back to life. I have yet to see any signs from my bougainvillea, but I haven’t lost hope yet. However, the last few days I spent [...]
Take and Eat
Back when I was doing my hand study paintings, I bought and downloaded a bunch of inspiration photos to use. One of them was this great image of hands holding out bread that perfectly illustrated the “take and eat” verses. But I’ve been staring at it for over a year because I’ve been intimidated by [...]
The storm has passed, and we are sailing into the harbor of Spring. The cold passed by so quickly, it was almost like it didn’t happen. We had a week of 30F temperatures, and then poof, we were back to normal and in the 70s agains. This week we are in the 80s. Craziness. The [...]
