buttons and beans

I am sitting in my room with the sound of the sea outside the balcony door. I picked up these rocks and they reminded me of buttons and beans(jelly, kidney, pinto...) I LOVE the beach!

I KNOW you wish you were here. Tee hee.

a bit of spring

A couple of weeks ago, the good husband trimmed the fruit trees. When I saw the pile of branches laying there with buds all ready to blossom I thought I'd bring some inside and see if they'd bloom. Sure enough, in about a week they began to pop open. I LOVE having it up in my kitchen window watching the progress. Now it is sprouting leaves, too. Ah, Spring...(see last blog entry!!!)

This morning

So, I got up this morning and this is what was going on. Now the sun has come out and I don't think it will last long. Figures it would get cold since the garden is ready to plant and I bought some tomato plants and a new lemon tree. I brought the tree inside so I could take good care of it!

What I really need are some cute grandchildren to make me a snowman!

Merry Christmas!

I just wanted to wish you all--near or far--a Merry Christmas! Don't forget we celebrate this holiday for the Savior who has lived and died for us all. I want to always be together with my family. I love you all.

My favorite quilt

This is my favorite quilt. I love the colors, I love the softness of the Moda fabric, and I love the quilting. I keep this in my bedroom for lovely afternoon naps on cool days. It feels GOOD! I found the quilt pattern in a cute quilt store in Atascadero, CA on a business trip with my husband. The quilt reminds me of the California coast, one of my very favorite places to be.

Join the quilt festival

Thought I'd post this in case anyone has a quilt they'd like to post. Go to her blog, and it tells you what to do. I plan on posting something. It will be fun to see what other people put on. This is supposed to be an info button. We'll see if it works....

tender mercies from the Lord

So, I was cleaning my room today and I came to a tote bag I sometimes use when on trips. When I picked it up, a vivid picture came into my mind of me finding the diamond from my wedding ring. I had lost it two years ago. At the time I hunted everywhere for it but couldn't find it. So I got a flashlight and hunted through several pockets and the cell phone case and the zippered pouch. Then I took everything out of the purse's main section and shined my flashlight into it. There was this little beauty shining at me! Now, seriously, that is a tender mercy from the Lord. I said a prayer of thanks right then.

I could totally have dumped the crumbs and whatnot from the purse straight into the trash, but instead I looked carefully and found a gem.

Isn't that a heartwarming story? It is to me.
