Welcome to my World

Welcome to my little corner of the vast God planned domain. I plan to share mostly my card projects here, you might even possible see some scrapping, quilt projects, and photography. Who knows I may even try other other craft projects. I am also going to share a selection of little recipe cards I have collected over the past few years - scrapped, of course. There may even be some little things of greatness of my daily life. Every now and then, I might even vent!

What a past month

I have been working 10-12 hours a day just to get the huge office of 25 people moved to a new building. Seems that once most had their space in order to heck with the rest of us and the rest of the stuff like office supplies and needs. Only 3 of us have been working these long hours to get things together and then not to mention the double workload I have been given this year. I have been given the caseload of my plus another whole secretary we lost to budget cuts. Oh well, I can persevere in the Lord who strengthens me.

We have been very busy on the weekends also trying to get a little camping in and a few other things. The first weekend of Sept we stayed home and did a lot of things aroudn the house but still not nearly what needs to be done. I also worked on several swaps that weekend.

The following weekend Dan and I trav eled to Montana to spend with my parents. I told mom I wanted to come over and have no phones, no TV if not wanted do absolutely nothing that did not need to happen. We slept in every day with my parents instead of the 5 am arising. Played lots of cards. Dan and I took a two hour trip on their 4 wheeler and had a great time enjoying the country, mountains and the splendor of God. Took Mom and Dad to dinner and had a great time.

Last week - Fri thru Sun - I with 11 other gals from our Church went to a Womens Retreat at the Cannon Beach Conference Center on the Oregon coast. What an uplifting time. Left a lot of things there for the Lord to handle in my life. What a great past two weekends spening time with friends and family and the great creator. Needless to say things got a little behind at home but I am learning they are not as important as what I had done the past two weekend.

Tried to work shorter hours this past week and did a few things around the house as my daughter came home from across the state for the weekend. We had a fabulous time Fri. Christine stopped by my new office at work on her way to the house. One of the gals leaned over and said, afte she left, shut it down and go spend some mommy daughter time, you deserve it. So went home, picked up her, had a pedicure, went to Subway for dinner and chat, then to the movie Julie & Julia. What a time. Yesterday went to a football game at her alma mater, Whitworth University. The Pirates won. Then met her brother, Eric and the four of us went to dinner. Came home and watch more college football games.

Off to church today, then to lunch with some friends, and then to the Green Bluff area to pick fresh fruits and vegetables. She will be going home tomorrow am as she does not have to work tomorrow.

Hope to get some of my cards made in the past month posted later today. Have a great week and GOD Bless You All.
