Summer Time

Rejoice, O soul, the debt is paid.
For all our sins on Christ were laid;
We've been redeemed, we're justified-
And all because the Savior died.

North and South Meet

This came from a old pond behind or house the north. A water moccaSIN snake.
We found out the old pond that watered the cows is to the right on photo in back of the trees and it is all grown up in weeds and old fallen tree limbs.

This is the south and front of the house, it looked like this when we moved here in December.

This is the front now and the snake was behind that house they are framing on the right of the photo. The workers killed the bad bad snake. We will not go out this summer with out looking at ever step we take. I still love looking at the north of my house which is in the county the front is city,but I will not go out side after dark in the back , county or city. There are no houses on the east or west side of us yet. The Bennie said they will not clean the old pond out because the county could care less about old snakes.

Speaking of Success

from one success to other success , retirement and drinking to both.
Boy! do I need blogger material.

Streams In The Desert

By Mrs. Charles E. Cowman
Lord, let me do the little things
which may fall to my lot;
Those little inconspicuous ones
By others oft forgot.
If, like the Master, I can give
Myself for those I love,
Rich joy and peace shall come to me,
Sweet rest in heaven above.
I know not when the day shall close;
But when life's curfew rings,
I want my Lord to fine me then
Still doing little things.

Busy Cat watch and Quilt Saturday

Here I have been trying to keep up with the brick layers (enlarge picture) and you can see out of the window where I set to quilt. They sure work fast.
This little pin cushion that Carol gave me keeps me from losing my needle when I go check on the cat in the tree.

Around 7:00 this morning two dogs treed him. We put this limb up so he can walk down, it is after 4:00 and he will not come down . We put food out for him , I wish I knew who's cat this is.

What More Could Be Out There

This is what ran across the hay field this morning before 6:00 am. Coyote, the first time we have seen one. If they had not cut the field yesterday The Bennie would not have seen him or her.
This afternoon they were rolling in the hay.

Mr. Farmer did raise the dust, as he left.

Nice roll, the field will be full of them when they get around the field.

Read, Sew and Blog

Even if you do not quilt you will enjoy these books. Elm Creek Quilt's.
I got over the guilt (a feeling of self-reproach from believing that one has done a wrong). I love being retired.

All the Talk in Trumann Arkansas

Gary McClung said Sunday that the white bird has been the talk of his neighborhood . Jim Bednarz of Arkansas State University said the albino bird is not a one-in -a-million event- it's
more like one in 30,000. The orange on the belly could make it a "partial albino."
I for got to say it is a robin.

How many stitches an-inch

I want to do some Applique but I could not make myself cut this up or out. Charlene from the Village gave me her stash as I blogged about some time back. So I am quilting this as a picture? I need to practice doing less stitches an-inch any way. Thank you Charlene

The antidote to the poison of self-indulgence is the desire to please God and serve others, not ourselves. Self-indulgence is a gift we don't need. David McCasland
