His Wisdom

I cannot always understand,
The way, God leadeth me,
The way, and when and wherefore
Is oft a mystery.

But I can trust His wisdom,
I know His way is best,
His heart knows no unkindness,
And on His love I rest.

This is where we have been living the pass two days in our camper. We had heat and a stove to cook on. The house got very cold fast. The temp is still very cold and the ice shows no sign of melting.
The back of the house

We got electricity about noon today. The village people were hit hard it my be next week before they get electricity. We talk to Frank every day. They have gas so in one room they have a little gas heater that he put in this fall. ( smart move) So they have heat and gas to cook with. He said he will be back to his blog soon. The place we lived in the village now has a tree in the living room. Was God's time not just right for us and our move.

Hear ye Hear ye

( Trivia Monday ) The word " news" came from the first letters of the words North, East, West and South. This was because information was being gathered from all different directions.

Acres of Blue

There's acres of blue up there," he said, Beyond all the clouds and rain; There's oceans of joy and love somewhere, Apart from sorrow and pain.

"There's millions of stars that man's never seen Where life can begin anew;

There's perfect calm where the ends of a rainbow

Dip into acres of blue

Thank God for the assurance of divine guidance, and pray that you may stand in the right relationship to all the impossibilities and improbabilities.

To All Plant Lovers

Easy and pretty ways to clean air. Go green, three of the worst offenders found in relatively new homes are from building mater and furnished with synthetic carpeting fabrics, laminated counters, plastic coated wallpaper, and other materials know to "off gas" pollutants in to the interior environment. This is my solution "Bamboo" with fake flower. Do the bomboo place mats count?

Can We Talk Quilts

If you remember this ,I was so sure my quilting ability had made a advancement and I could do this. No I made a silly mistake which I will not go in to. Now I have just sacked it up maybe for years.
I am going to try a new block, it took a day an a half to cut 100's of these.

What do you think ? Can I do this? Before the world I will do my best. See what not having my Village quilt friends near caused.

I Can Get into Any Thing

We moved the feeder , now Mr. Red is after this one. Enlarge and look at those toes. LOL


Emerson so fittingly penned these words: "All I have seen teaches me to trust the Creator for all I have not seen." I have nothing to do with tomorrow, My Savior will make that His care; Its grace and strength I can't borrow, So why should I borrow its care.

The Bennie made Dinner

While I huffed and puffed with the house work. The Bennie made my dinner. His meat sauce over a plate of spaghetti. So good, for dessert the dear made a light treat. Mascarpone Italian cream cheese with Raspberry yogurt topped with shaved chocolate in little fillo cups.

Saturday's will be the Day

To day it has been 4 weeks . No more thinking about it I have to do this, even a new house has to be cleaned.

The Ripper is My Friend

Yesterday I found a big mistake in my quilt, all afternoon the seam ripper was my only hope. Before I ripped I had to think about how in the world could I fix this . So I went to my other mess. Next picture I have it all under control and now I can sit and knit or embroidery and crochet at night or when the mood hits me.

getting it sorted

The only way I could think of to fix the quilt was rip out all 30 blocks. Poor me , but I will not give up . Just marked it up as learning experience.
