Brother got married tonight. He had tears in his eyes, when she came down the isle. Praying for Gods will to be done. There was Crown Reserve at the after party. Praying for Gods will to be done.

Well, I have dropped the ball, once again,
No pics of all the goodys from the Worlds Longest Yard Sale,
A lot of it has gone out the door already,
But if you want to see pics go to our Dry Creek facebook page.
For the last few months, I have been alittle  under the weather.
Nothing to complain about,
but today, as I sit here,
Tired of itching,
Tired of knee Pain.
Back Pain,
morning headachs
and I realize this is petty.
For many are going through much more.
But I need to be petted today.

                                                           Today is the 25th.
                                                                July 25th
                                                        HA HA and soon it will be December 25th
       Not too soon, I hope. I am have become one of those people that waits to the last minute to buy Christmas. But I didn't use to be. I use to be finished by August. All wrapped and hid in a closet.
Christmas at the shop has been different the last few years. I missed my decorating buddy. Maybe this year we can decorate again. So Merry Christmas in July!

Yard Sale was a bust, made it across the whole state and less than 50 yard sales.
Boo Hoo!

Early this morning, I was started awake by slamming desk drawers, overhead light in my eyes and mumbling of no so nice words, by a man in his underwear. This man would be my love, my one and only. With that said, his glasses had come apart in his hand as he was wiping them with the hand towel after his shower.  I got up and as soon as my feet hit the floor, I have to go. So in the other room he is still slamming drawers on a mad hunt for the eye glass repair kit. Seems it was my fault that it was not in the same place he put it a year ago. So with sleepy eyes I hunted and hunted and found a small, tiny screwdriver set. Then he wanted some old glasses, I got those. Then he wanted a magnifying glass, as I was looking for that, I heard........I got it!
How was you morning?

I dream all the time!
I dream of projects that I want to complete, I dream of how my day will unfold, I dream of how my week will be. I am a dreamer. I want to do more much more. There is days when I have dreamed up my day and then customers come in and I don't complete my dream until later. Sometime I have lost my MOJO by then and I more on, cause there is no enough time.
I dream of how I want my yard to look and how I want my house to look. I dream on the ride home in the afternoons of what I will complete, but in reality, there is no way anyone could build that fire pit and plant the flowers in 2 1/2 to 3 hours. I think PINTEREST has added to my dreaming. I see the finished project, I pin it and dream of it. Now in reality, will I ever complete all these project? Maybe not but it is fun to dream and at least I try some of them. So it is not a bad thing to be a dreamer.

Picture is of 2 of my grands that love to wave with the top down. Like in a parade . I  Love fulfilling their little boy bucket list. LOL
This weekend I experienced a wonderful, relaxing, stressful weekend. On one hand I enjoyed no phone calls, no work at the shop and stress with family .On the other hand,  I did experience another type of stress. Stress being with a friend that I don't really know any more. I love her, enjoy being with her. I prayed a lot this weekend, to keep my mouth shut and not vent, and enjoy the time I have. Thank you Lord for all the women that joined us and made it a great weekend. I met new friends that make me want to piece a quilt more than ever.  Like I need another hobby. Now back to the real world, Monday was filled with doctors appointment, having the oil changed,to Target to get new pillows, a quick stop at Michaels to see if I needed something, Publix for a few things, home, wash a load of clothes, taking Ky to baseball practice, walked, and then back to the pig to get a few more things. Home at 7:30 to eat dinner and dry the clothes I put in washer at 4. Hummm, I kinda wish I was back at the Retreat house......Now to work, so I can relax again. LOL

Shamy Amy ( grandson Ky) just wants you to know it is a beautiful day! Get out and enjoy it! Even if you just sit on the porch and feel the breeze. Peace out!

No No I am not at the beach, And not sure I want to be this week, Spring Break and in the 20's at night and the wind is blowing so hard you can't stand to be out much. But I am sure there are people that booked that Spring Break trip to be at the beach with the family and they are having a lovely time. Me, I like the heat. I enjoyed the beach in November this year but I do like alittle heat. But I enjoy looking at the beautiful sunset at the beach. Happy Spring Break Yall.

Made it through the storm last night, birds chirpping and I have been batting at a huge fly all morning.  But Spring is in the air. I can feel it. I can smell it, I can almost taste it.  
In my daily reading i found this ....
We need to be at  "PEACE" with our past, content with our present, and sure about our future, knowing they are all in Gods hands.

The stomach virus has invaded our family and friends. It is a very bad virus. Violent from both ends if you know what I mean. So please, I am praying for this bug to skip me and dear hubby. I am taking precautions and Clorox's everything. If you have it, don't come in my shop, home or try to shake my hand. STAY HOME! If you have been exposed. I beg of you. I  think, the Anticipation of getting this is going to drive me insane. So please be considerate of others.

I had all intention to post yesterday (3-13-13) and life got in the way.
My idea of re-doing rooms in the house has went to the way-side.
My New Years Idea, forgotten by February.
I still have ideas, stay tuned.
Hubby has worked a side job this week and I have been creating alittle.
I saw these two items on Pinterest and had to make them.
I wonder, how many things do we make.
I search and pin and think about it,
but most of them are for the future.
I do have a board that is completed items.
Have you created something this week?

January - Twenty Thirteen

I have made myself a promise this year, a resolution like promise, to create -redo-redecorate or change something in my house each month. So with this said, I believe this month we have been extremely busy. We had a deadline, which is always helpful. Dear Daughter and family moved out of our house last November (2011)  after a 6 year stay.  Until this month, we used this bedroom as a junk room. Most people have Junk drawers, I have Junk rooms. LOL  We washed walls, cleaned carpet, painted furniture, moved all the JUNK into another room and the pictures below show our hard work. I sometimes go into this room and just look. It is the most un-junked room in our house. No clutter, simple and clean. Now on to the next room.......
