Ladies Retreat

The Shiloh ladies group is having a ladies retreat tomorrow so I donated a quilt for the door prize.    Nothing fancy and little too pastel for my taste but I hope whoever wins likes it.



I Am So Blessed

The day these 2 people came in my life I was so blessed.  I just love them to death.  And here is Jilly rocking her new specs.  She always looks amazing and was has such a positive way of looking at life and she couldn’t have found a better husband if the good Lord himself came down and plopped him at her front door.      She’s just so cute – I wanna be like her.

New Glasses, New Hair

Finally had to accept I have to wear glasses so Michael decided I needed a whole new look.  I love the new hair color and got a lot of compliments.  Now some days I have my regular glasses and some days I rock the red pair I bought thinking Jilly would wear these.  I need to take a picture in the red but I hate pictures.


The Bedroom is Almost Finished

After decisions, decisions, decisions I think I like the bedroom the way it is, except the color.   Since I paid a fortune for the last person using it and I hate to paint I left the brown paint but I think I like everything else.    When Jilly comes I thought I’d ask if she would paint some designs on the wall for me.   She is so creative and so amazingly talented.    I’ve always wished i had the nerve to paint my bedroom red but I never have.

I really do like using the cubes for clothing instead of a dresser.  So much easier to put clothes away, find them and easily get what you’re looking for.


So Different

It’s so funny to watch their different personalities develop.  Poor Merlin is such an emotional thing.   He wants someone to sit and hold him 24/7.   He would be so happy living with a little old man or woman and just sitting on their lap all day but I’d never give him up.    He’s developing an issue with baby dog cause baby dog horns in and wants attention also.   Now he just howls when you leave but I’m hoping this too passes.  You should see his face when the cat gets in the chair with him.  He’s so afraid to move he crams himself into the arm as much as possible.

Then there is baby dog.  He is just a lover.  He wants to be with you no matter where you go.  If you take a shower he’ll wait on the floor next to the tub.  If you cook he’s lay right in front of the stove.  No matter where you go in the house baby dog goes with you.  Any time I hand bind a quilt, he has to have him some blankie time.

Just Looking Back

Just happened to look back today at my boys then and now.  While they may sometimes make me crazy and want to strangle them, I love those little dogs so much.  The bring so much to your life and ask nothing in return except you let them love you.    They were so cute as pups.  That’s when we first brought baby dog home in his backpack.   Hard to believe they are 1 and 2 now.
