A Relaxing Saturday…..

I decided on a lazy Saturday. I thought about going for a walk, but I was enjoying myself as I worked on my pastel blanket and watched an anime I had stopped watching for a short while.

I learned this pattern from Blossom Crochet……..

Black Clover Manga series

I did go to Louisiana, but it’s not completed yet. The sun has been gone for a while. I am going to continue to watch this anime series until I can no longer keep my eyes open. 

I am smiling, because I really enjoyed myself today. Tomorrow I will look into finding an e-commerce site to add to my blog, because I need to start selling all crochet items……

Jumble Words….

I got this morning not really feeling anything, but I did give my ‘thanks for waking up, in my right mind, and somewhat healthy.’ Once my eyes were fully open and I saw the sun lighting the sky, I reached for my phone. I can remember when I would have reached for the remote control or to remove my cat from my person. (I never understood why they had to sleep on me)

Anyway, I noticed someone had liked something I wrote on my blog. I may not follow everyone who is following me or read everyone’s post more than once. Sorry, but I am going to work on changing that ‘me’ point of view. Not to get side-tracking, because I really want to add on, but we all know there is a reality when one isn’t online.  It doesn’t matter how nice you are, one can’t live without paying a bill or two and I just did what I said I wasn’t going to do.

Anyway, I clicked on “Conversation on finding and loving who I am,” and the word “Grateful,” along with a picture of a pen on top of a book caught my attention. Those words got me moving as I got through my morning cleaning, gathering my Bible, study book, as well as a book I bought more than 8 years ago. Along with my phone and a cup of hot water as I read on the patio,

I am not making any sense, because I am typing as I sometimes talk, which is way too fast. I am going to just make a list and maybe that will help clear up my jumble words.

  1. I don’t just want to read the Bible and think about what I have read. I wanted to write down what I got for the Word and even write down questions. I have gone through the Bible to find an answer for whatever question I may have had. I also get online, ask my church family and friends. 
  2. I have a patio where I could enjoy fresh air, see the beauty that is here, and the comfort of being able to go inside when needed.
  3. I always like drinking something hot when it’s a little cold. (Today it’s hot water as I read the Word. I am reading the book of Samuel)
  4. If I buy a book or get a positive book I will  read it to the end.

I bought this book eight or more years ago. It will no longer stay on a shelf taking up space, I will read something every day until I have read all 569 pages…


Service starts in thirty minutes, so I better get something to eat, and enjoy the Word online. My church is open and although I would like to go and be there in person. I am just NOT ready. There are a few people who have asked me to come, said they would come and pick me up, but they aren’t listening to me.

Some have said my faith isn’t strong, because I shouldn’t be fearful of getting a sickness when God’s Word is stronger. I am so tired of people telling me what I have and don’t have, because I know who I am and DO NOT have to explain anything to anyone.

I am listening to “Take Me to the King,” by Tamela Mann and every word is how I am feeling now..

And I am GOOD…..

A Morning Smile…..

I always have LOVED trees.  I had started typing, but my mind is overworked. I started working on another book and I took some time to work on an article for my website (still a work in process) and my words are becoming unreadable.

I started thinking about something that makes me Smile and looking at pictures I came across a few trees. One day a bird was nice to stay where it was, and it was Morning Smile…..

Changing How I Move…

Okay, I changed my mind about walking outside in the cold (way 2 sleepy & my mind is on my next project) I decided to dance. I sometimes talk 2 fast & say the 1st thing out of my head, (not always a good thing) because when I told a friend I started dancing again and said, “it’s not what you are thinking”. I had to go back and apologize, because not all guys have a dirty mind.

I only got through 30mins (I WILL GET BACK N SHAPE 1 DAY), but this is a good tired feeling.. I remembered the 1st time I tried this dvd I could only do 10mins.

I am going to fix a cup of hot tea and work out a plan to get me moving at least 30mins everyday to be a better me.

Changing how I eat won’t do any good unless I change how I move.

Another Day…

What do you do after you have made a list, double checked your facts, and believe you have done everything you could do to set your dreams free?

 I wanted a website where I could talk about my craft as well as to sell my projects (crochet items to a cross stitch picture). It was a good idea on paper. I did my research.

 I went through each step and double checked  my facts. It wasn’t hard to set up the website, but it is the little things behind the sign on information that they don’t tell you – you need to know.

 A website is not just typing in your stories, posting your pictures and you see your dreams coming true. 

There really should be a full detail of each step you need to know how to do before you set up a website and what you need to do after it is set up in simple steps.

I may have gotten a story or two under the right category, but it’s not where I want it to be (it’s at the button of the page & not the top). I am getting closer to getting it right.

  I have been working on a Granny Square blanket on and off this past week  and it is coming out real.  I have been doing this stitch for more than 30 years now and I didn’t think I could learn something new.  I was wrong. SMILE!

Blossom Crochet

Granny Squares are a great stash busting project. – whether you choose to make lots of small ones or a huge one, this crochet tutorial will help you do it!

It is time I take a crochet break. I know most people would have said, “a coffee break”, but I’ve already had my coffee for the day. The next best thing than coffee is crocheting. It’s time to have some fun and what better way to do that is to create something with your hand?

 I am not giving up on my words, but one has to know when it’s time to back off and come back when your mind is clear? I am going back to working on my baby boy’s blanket. Well not really my blanket, because I am hoping to sell it one day.

Time to find a movie and get back to what I do. And, one day I will get my website working correctly. It is a New Year and I will have another day to set my dreams free!
