TOO OFTEN WE UNDERESTIMATE THE POWER OF A TOUCH, A SMILE, A KIND WORD, A LISTENING EAR, AN HONEST COMPLIMENT, OR THE SMALLEST ACT OF CARING, ALL OF WHICH HAVE THE POTENTIAL TO TURN A LIFE AROUND

Using Up The Stash of Life...

While it's good to take care of our health, it is also a very good thing to take care of living our life...

"Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well-preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, wine in the other, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming "WOO HOO, what a ride!" I read this at J's Quilting Blog. Gave me a chuckle and something to think about.

So far I have the chocolate part covered! Although I am having withdrawal pains cause I ran out of my favorite Aldi Chocolate months and months ago - Ute!

Thanks Joyce!

Snowballs in Springtime...Only in Minnesota!

Finished this Gingersnap flimsy last week.  All of the fabric is by Kansas Troubles for Moda.  Also made a pillow cover to match with the left over squares. The sun sort of fades out the color, but you get the idea of what it looks like. Can't wait to load this on my new machine quilting frame, it's gonna be fun!

Hatching Day to Departure Day...

The nest is overflowing with the three baby robins tucked inside. They have been perched on the edge of the nest today, getting feathers organized for the first flight out of the nest. I enjoyed watching the little guys grow up, but the weather is turning toward summer and it's time for them to release our boat!

Front Porch Party...

Come join us for a front porch party and tour. My front porch is little more than a pathway to the front door, but still a porch with room for a comfy rocking chair and some flowers!
See you on June 5, 2008 when you click in at Rose Colored Glasses for the party!
Enjoy the tour!
