Precious TRUTH, Precious Child

September 29, 2010

I heard a precious TRUTH from my sweet Brooklyn tonight.

"God made the world and all things in it."

Yes, Sweetheart, He did and He made you, too....

Come sit a spell

September 28, 2010

I found the perfect chair for my sewing room. Its comfortable and small enough not to take up too much room. The fact that its pink is a bonus. Sweet!

Sewing room progress

September 25, 2010

I have worked myself into exhaustion. That's very typical of me.  I get on a roll and will not stop until I have mostly accomplished the mission.

I've been invited to a dear friend's home for supper, so I can't be on the computer long, however, I really want to share a few pictures of my new room...

Moving in.

The room has a south facing window and an east facing window, so the light in here is amazing!

The fabric all refolded and stacked neatly. I used the Monica @ Happy Zombie tutorial. I  love how neat and tidy it is. 

I bought this desk for a dollar! I raised it up and made it my cutting table. I love it! I added the curtains to cover the ugly legs. The center area of the desk makes a great storage area. I didn't do anything permanent to it, so I can change my mind how I want to use it later on. Yes, it needs refinished. No, I don't care. =)

Sewing notions are slowly finding a  new home.

I can sew and press looking out a window. I love that. 

A design wall/place to hang quilts or quilt tops to look at. I need to buy end caps for the electrical conduit pipes. The drapery rings I found on clearance at Hancocks for 50 cents a package. I bought 5 knowing I would find a use for them. 

Piles in my house

September 21, 2010

Piles for thrift stores...

Piles for friends...

Piles for the landfill and for recycling...

A room to organize for my son...

A room to organize...

....for me! 
Because this room will be my very own sewing room!! 

Tough lesson

September 16, 2010

Reagan reorganized his folders on his Mac, put things in the trash and emptied it...Can you guess what happens when he clicks on the folder he had just created? Yup...It can't open it because it can't find the original file. One problem is he made it an alias.

He is researching to see if its possible to recover his essays.

I feel his pain.

Been there, done that, bought the t-shirt and wore it out...

He is way too much like me....I won't mention the time I deleted an account on the PC several years ago and lost a ton of pictures. Nope, not gonna relive that nightmare.

Domestic Diva

September 12, 2010

On our day trip to Wisconsin yesterday, we checked out a couple of quilt stores...At a darling store called Front Porch Quilts in Prairie Du Chien I found this adorable fabric!!

I'm thinking about making an apron, but the jury is still out.

South Western Wisconsin

Rusty and I took a day trip to Wisconsin yesterday. Just the two of us. 

Here are a few of the highlights of the trip.

Not 10 minutes after I told Russ I thought it would be fun to have a sheep lawn ornament, we drove by a lawn ornament store and look at what we found! One of these lambs is now in my front garden.

The scenery in SW Wisconsin is stunning.

In a few weeks, when the leaves turn, it will be amazing!

We stopped at Norskhaven for lunch. It's a charming little shop. 

I loved this stove, but it wasn't for sale...

I loved this table, but it wasn't for sale either. I guess they get asked if they will sell them all the time. I can see why! 

Our lunch was a cup of chicken and dumplings soup, a cup of coffee....

...and for desert, apple cake pie with pecans. It was amazing!

Then we were off to the Kickapoo apple orchard to buy some apples. Yummy!

On the way home, we stopped to try out the famous Gunderburger for dinner. 

He ate it all! Yikes!!

Thanks, honey, for a super fun day! 

A happy Mancub

Mitchell saved his money from his de-tasseling job this summer to buy himself an iPod Touch. Today, his very own 4th generation iPod Touch arrived....It's amazing!

Merciful to Me

September 9, 2010

Merciful to Me is the latest release by Reformed Praise. You can listen to excerpts of each of the songs and download it from the iTunes store or from the Reformed Praise website.

It's quickly become one of my favorite albums to be playing in the background as I do my daily tasks through out the day.

For more details go to An Infant in a Cradle.

School days begin once again...

September 7, 2010

It's that time of year again when school begins for our family. I know public schools have been in session for at least two weeks, but I prefer to start after Labor Day and start with a short week as we get our feet wet, so to speak.

This is our 10th year of homeschooling! Reagan is a junior this year....I don't know how that happened. Seriously! Mitchell is in 8th grade this year. We have classes lined up at our homeschool assistance program to supplement what we are doing here at home. Reagan will be doing chemistry labs and Mitchell will be taking some science classes and a writing class. Reagan is also one of the pianists for the homeschool play for this fall. Their schedule will be full, but not so full that they can't do the things they enjoy doing.

My goals this year began this morning at 5:00 am with Bible reading/study and prayer. I have been very lax with that in that area and my life reflects it, too. It feels to good to have a routine after having 3 full months of lazy summer days.

My tip: The ESV Bible+ app is a "must have" for your iPod Touch or iPhone.
