Welcome to my little corner of blogland! This is the only sane spot I can come in my crazy life! :) Here I share my sometimes funny sometimes NOT-day to day insanity I call my life, along with my sweet wooly hubby & all our boys :)

If you have built castles in the air, your work need not be lost; there is where they should be.
Now put foundations under them.

Misc. Monday Madness :)

Some finished quilts I know made their way to their new baby owners I wanted to share :)

This one went to my cousin's baby Cole, he was born mid-Nov. and is having some heart issues. Please pray for him and for his family :) He will be ok but as most of us know ongoing health issues with our babies? Not fun. This one has batting/flannel. Tried to machine sew down both sides of binding...did NOT go well lol. My mom told me AFTER the fact I did it bass-ackwards, I did back to front, apparently supposed to do front to back? I ususally hand sew it down so is that back to front? I dunno. Its done and there LOL

This one went to my friend Heather's baby Evan, born early Nov. After the binding fiasco I did fleece on the back of this one with the pillowcase method.

See this cutie pie? He is so sweet :) So cute :) I love him to pieces. As you know I've been kinda down lately..

So what does this nut do to make me laugh til I cried last week?

put a knee high over his big head. OMGosh I DIED LAUGHING. Cheered my whole day up :)

A merry heart doeth good like a medicine

Well it sleeted a bit last night, and the sky is all flat grey lol you know that means winter weather! Supposed to move in about 5pm this evening. Coming up from Tx and we are still on the snow/ice cusp so who knows I am PRAYING snow...ice is the pits to deal with. We are suppose to get hit pretty hard. Well its Monday a new week, last week of January. My Jan. went fast didn't it? I"m starting this week early, 28 days of prayer. I am committing to praying/Bible reading for 4 solid weeks of Feb. (makes a habit you know!) Thats certain to improve my mood a bit lol. Got a ton to clean today, esp. since Tues. and Wed. will likely be called off for school due to weather. Gona read some blogs while I finish my coffee and then I am off. Today I read Psalm 136, its pretty neat :) Go read it! Let me know if you do!

In diet news I am holding steady from my 3 lb gain last week, so that puts my total loss at 4 lbs. No gains or losses this past week but at least no gains right Sharon? Sharon? :) ::grins innocently::

What a perfectly funny thing to do...I love it!!!
YOu will have days off school for weather....we never get those. I care more now that I work at the school..haha.
Be careful and stay warm..we are supposed to get more snow tonight I think. WE got a total of about 9 inches in the last 24 hours. I think that is enough for now.
Perfect scripture...I am off to read it now.

how great to have someone do that to cheer you up. i love it when they do something completely silly to make us smile. good job on not gaining! sometimes that's just as important as losing it
