It is Monday and a Giveaway

Jaybird is sponsoring a giveaway.

It is definitely Monday. Mistakes, problems and just plain flustering day. So glad it is over. Teaching the tax classes is coming along, just seems to take time to train them in on the computer program.

On the upside though my spare bedroom has been painted and is just awaiting the arrival of all the fabric that is stored at this moment in the living room. I also have tons of boxes I am going through to de-clutter. I just pray that I will get rid of all that I will never use as someone else may enjoy it more. :)

Well God Bless all of you and have a great day. I am off to bed, I am like my children tonight when they have a bad day, CRABBY!!!!!!, so I am sending myself to my room. :)

Prayer request and my weekend away

Please pray for my friend's son Zack he was stationed over seas and has been injured, they are not sure if he will be able to stay in the (I think he is in the Army) service. Pray for healing and that God will send an angel to hold Leanne through this trying time. Better yet maybe I will just say the prayer here:

Dear Lord, Bless Zack and hold him in the palm of your hand, guide the surgeons, dr's and nurses to give him the best care and treatment he needs. Hold the family especially Leanne in your care, give them strength in everything as they are miles apart from each other. It is every mother's nightmare to receive any call such as this. Calm the fears, sending angels to tend to all of their needs.
Thank you Jesus for your truly are the great healer and none of us know when we will be called home, knowing you are there for us is a great comfort when we realize it is your will not mine.
Also if you have time please pray for my sister (she has a son and has not been able to find full time work for a long time) and I we are desparately trying to find jobs. I have an interview next week, but alas it is part time not full time, and will conflict greatly with my craft fairs on the weekends. As it is not a real high paying job I will still have to work 2 jobs to make ends meet.

I have a family member who is also stationed somewhere (lol confidential) and we all worry about him as well.

As for my weekend retreat I really needed this. I have the quilt top for my aunt almost finished. I shouldn't have turned on the computer but....I am weak, and needed a break. It has been fascinating watching the storm clouds roll over the lake. Sometimes in the evening around dusk it is like a fog rolls in and I can't see the light house then all of a sudden in the distance I can see the light beconing safety. My sister also came down from Silver Bay for a little crafting time(she makes cards) and she made SMOOTHIES they were just YUMMY!!!! Strawberry, cherry, blueberry, raspberry (dad did say I could eat anything), raspberry yogurt. When they were finished I told her I like the strawberry hot fudge sundae at DQ, needed chocolate and lo and behold there was chocolate in his fridge. They were so good and we had so much fun!!!!!! Now if I can organize a sister/mom event with my siblings up here....thinking smoothies will be on the menu.

I also saw a yearling and later in the evening saw 2 does and the yearling, It was awesome. I was able to come within 3 car lengths from them. Actually I just walked really slowly to the end of the deck. Would have pic but I had left the phone and camera in the house.

Well as all good things must come to an end tomorrow I will set up and do the early bird part of the show, but on the way I am taking some fabric to exchange to the quilt store in Floodwood. This fabric was damaged and we didn't find out until we brought it home. Actually it is my mom's but I will be buying 2 yards for me exchanging her and getting a yard for my sister. It is so cool a batik with loons, pine trees and the words Lake Superior written on it.

Have a great day and God Bless all of YOU!!!!

Remember we are all special in His eyes.

August Finishes and my special retreat weekend and a giveaway

I finished just two embroidered towels for the month of August.

I am also bringing two projects to finish then it will be off to a show. It is not really a retreat but I will be staying at my dads and enjoying a wonderful view of Lake Superior. Should be a creative rest of the week. Then on the weekend I will be working at Wild Rice Days.
With the summer being so busy, I am taking just a couple of days of quiet time.

Have a great weekend and God Bless all of YOU!!!!!
