My first picture belongs to a post back in September 8, 2009. My very good friend painted this and sent it to me as a surprise. I saw it on her blog and told her how beautiful it was. And next thing...here it was. I treasure it so, so much. Took me a long time to decide how to frame it. But I love what I came up with. Thank you my dearest friend Sandy. I Love you from my heart.
Now this picture was to be posted with my last blog. But as I said it wouldn't let me post it. So here is our finished product. YUMMY! The flowers are from my garden. The white Lilly is on it's second year of growth. Started with one stalk in planting of 2009. 2010 two stalks. Now I can't wait to see what will happen in this summer. Three stalks would be so exciting. OR maybe each stalk will produce 2 stalks. Wow I didn't think of that till just now. Check back and I will let you know for sure.

Ok that is all for now. Need to get going and work on some cards. I will post them soon. After all that is why I started this blog...what..has it been two years...No I think three. OOPS. I'm a slow turtle.

Have a happy and sunny day. Blessings to all.

I've always felt I was born in the wrong time. I think I'd love to be back in the late 1800's or early 1900's. Maybe if I was I wouldn't like it. But I do enjoy cleaning, planting, canning and cooking. But I never have the time for canning anymore. In fact I am kept so busy I have little time to do the things I long to do.

One reason is...dada...the computer. I spend time reading other blogs on the things I enjoy. Don't get me wrong, I do bust out a thing or two I enjoy. Keeping up with life is such a time consumer.
If we didn't need that little green stuff. ($$) I could stay home and play with what I love. I'm learning how to make time for myself.

My mother and I made some pickles this last summer. (2010) Her favorite pickle. We had a blast working together. I think she has just one jar left. I have only opened 3.

Well I have a lot to learn about blogging. I have the finished picture to add and it wont let me. I think this happened another time. Anyway you can see my mother. She is 76 in this pic. I'll try one more time to add one more pic. If not, thanks for your visit. Till next time God Bless.
